UnNews:TVs 'Drinking With the Stars' is back on top
9 June 2010
LOS ANGELES, California -- ABC's 'Drinking With the Stars' competition program was the most watched show for the fifth time in eight weeks, averaging 19 million viewers, followed by the two episodes of 'Teresa's Having a Meltdown' and one of 'CSI-Blythe'.
The week's only premier 'Don't Just Shoot Me', the Fox action comedy, was fourth in it's Wednesday 8-9 p.m. time slot, but first among happening men aged 18-34, and 61st amongst sour, unhappy women in their 20s and 30s. Viewership for "You Need New Furnture" rose 3% from the first half hour to the second, 4 million views to 4 million views plus 3%, whatever that is, I'm a writer, not a frickin' mathematician.
The Tuesday and Wednesday "Up Your Nose with a Rubber Hose" episodes were the most-watched programs in the category, followed by "Found", a "Lost" spinoff. Executives of competing networks were seen smacking their foreheads with the palms of their hands "FOUND?! Why the hell didn't I think of that?! Nuts!" one was heard to say.
The weeks most watched cable program was TNT's coverage of 'Look at Me Looking at You", a reality show in which people are filmed in their homes as they watch a reality show of people sitting in their homes watching a reality show. Again, studio execs such as Brian Kane were ticked that they didn't think of that one either.
