Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

  • Election hoopla. The early part of this week's TV was all about the presidential election. NBC's Saturday Night Live election special on Monday nabbed 14.4 million viewers — and the actual primetime election coverage on Tuesday was seen by at least 71 million viewers across multiple networks.
  • Counterproductive counterprogramming? With that many people watching election coverage, the CW's decision to air new episodes of 90210 and Privileged seems a little questionable. The shows did about as well as normal but didn't get much of a bump, with 90210 getting 3 million viewers and Privileged clocking in with 2.3 million.
  • Chung-chung . . . thunk? The venerable Law and Order (and its scene-change "chung-chung" noise) returned to NBC's lineup on Wednesday with something of a whimper. The show got 7.9 million viewers, one of the worst premieres in its 19 seasons.
  • Borpo! Oprah's appearance on 30 Rock kept the show rolling right along, drawing 8 million viewers on Thursday.
  • Treehouse is tops. The Treehouse of Horror episode of The Simpsons boosted that show to a season high of 12.4 million viewers — and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it was the best-rated episode of the show in almost five years.
