Maybe it was people protesting the Kardashians being on the list, maybe it was something else, but The Most Fascinating People of 2011 didn't fascinate by the numbers.
Barbara Walters reeled in 8.34 million viewers, scoring a 2.3 demo, but that's a whopping 30% down compared to last year's run!
Steve Jobs was number one, but we think enough people were miffed with the Kardashians being placed on the list, it might have turned some people off… wah-wah…
Whatevs, Babs is still one of the baddest bitches on the block!
