The 2006-07 Nielsen ratings are in
Surprise! A plurality of viewers in America watch American Idol, then lather, rinse, repeat. See the entire list of primetime ratings here. I adore the comprehensiveness this list. It’s really no fun when the list stops at the top 20. You do a double-take seeing Two and a Half Men there and that’s the biggest thrill of the experience. But this way, you get to scan through every title of the season past and learn that Sandy Cohen (a.k.a. Peter Gallagher, left) and his bagel slicer came in at a definitely-not-last-place No. 123. Take that, Celebrity Duets!
Some slight oddities. Shark (No. 24) outranked 24 (No. 27), and LaToya Jackson’s foray into law enforcement — axed after only four episodes — tied with Friday Night Lights (and four other shows) at No. 95. Did you find any surprises on the list? And is anyone else wondering why the CW doesn’t just cancel all their shows?
