Great Night For Miss America, Not So Much For Daytime TV

Filed under: TV News

It's not that surprising, but still a bit disappointing.

Sunday night, the 2011 Miss USA competition dominated the network competition by nabbing 7.25 million viewers and a 2.2 rating. That's a 57 percent increase from last year and the pageant hasn't seen those kind of numbers since 2005. Yay!

The same unfortunately could not be said for the Daytime Emmys. The two hour long ceremony brought in only 5.4 million viewers and plunged 27 percent from last year’s demo numbers. Whomp, whomp!

Looks like not even a stellar tribute to Oprah could save that sinking ship. Sad!

Oprah Leaves Us On A High Note And BIG Ratings!

Filed under: TV NewsOprah Winfrey

It was so hard yesterday to say goodbye to Oprah Winfrey and the show that made her a household name. To her credit, the hour was one of the best episodes in the history of her show. We were moved. We were touched. We were crying so hard, we had to rewind the DVR for the final 3 minutes because our sobs drowned out the TV.

Embarrassing? Not remotely, since we know we weren't alone. According to the preliminary numbers, yesterday's farewell show was the highest-rated broadcast of Big O's show in 17 years. It posted a 13.3 household rating in the overnight metered markets and more than doubled its recent averages. That means there were millions upon millions of other people weeping shamelessly at their flat-screens just like us yesterday.

We could all use a hug! Oprah, where are you???

P.S. - In case you missed it, check out the HIGHlights of her farewell episode (above)

We guess we're not surprised, but we are starting to get curious - what did the E! network air before the Kardashians??? We can't remember!

Last night, the latest installment of the "Life and Times of The Kardashians" premiered - and it premiered well. Khloe & Lamar drew almost 2.6 million total viewers and earned a 1.93 household rating last night, scoring 20% higher in both fronts than the slots previous tenant, Kourtney & Kim Take New York.

Ouch! Did you feel that ladies? Your kid sister is one-uping you at your own game!

Let's see if it has any momentum!

Did U watch the premiere? Thoughts?

Spongebob Still King Of Kable!

Filed under: TV News

The kiddies still love to venture to that pineapple under the sea! Go figure!

Last Thursday, Nickelodeon aired a brand new Spongebob Squarepants special that has now been ranked the most watch cable show of the past week!

The half-hour special drew in 6.1 million total viewers and also clocked in as the #1 telecast with kids 2-11 on broadcast and basic cable.

And if that's not enough to impress you, then how about this: The special also averaged 1.4/1.6 million with adults 18-49, which is more adult viewers than TBS’ Conan for the night.

Whoopsie! No doubt someone is going to make mention of this on The Tonight Show later!
