Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

  • No secret. Fox's Secret Millionaire had a strong debut on Wednesday. It averaged 7.4 million viewers, but that's only part of the story: It also built its audience throughout its two hours, so by the final half-hour, 8.3 million people were watching.
  • Brit appeal. Britney Spears's MTV documentary, Britney: For the Record, drew 3.7 million viewers on Sunday — not up to VMA level, but better than an average episode of The Hills.
  • Starbuck's star turn. With Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica's Starbuck) guest-starring, Law & Order won its time slot on Wednesday with 11.3 million viewers.
  • Grammy moments. Wednesday night's Grammy nomination special was just OK for CBS, with 7.2 million viewers. That's down from its lead-in, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, which got 11.7 million viewers.
  • Fascinating. Barbara Walters's annual special on the most fascinating people held its own on Thursday night, winning its time slot with 13.2 million viewers.

I'm with you Pink. Most of these ratings depress me. Why do people watch crap?
