Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

  • Oh, Obama. Barack Obama set a new ratings record for presidential nomination acceptance speeches on Thursday, when his speech from Denver was seen by at least 38 million viewers. For some context, that makes it a bigger TV event than the Olympics opening ceremonies were — but it still couldn't beat some of last year's NFL football playoff games.
  • Speaking Greek. Greek set a ratings record with its season premiere on Tuesday. Its 1.6 million viewers were the ABC Family show's biggest audience ever.
  • A little less talent. NBC's America's Got Talent is still one of the biggest shows of the Summer, but it hit a low mark when it returned from an Olympics hiatus on Tuesday. Its 11 million viewers tied the season low for the show.
  • Tough win for tough jobs. NBC's America's Toughest Jobs was the network's first new series to premiere after heavy Olympics promotion, and it scored a narrow victory in its time slot on Monday with 7.3 million viewers.

i guess it was expected that Obama's speech would earn high ratings and a lot of viewers and to be honest, i'm a little shocked at the sheer number of people. there was enough promotion around Greek that the network should be really satisfied with the response that they got and the high viewership number.
