    Yes, it doesn't C&P easily. Yesterday's was pretty easy to paste into Word, and then I just formatted it a little and pasted it here with the [ code ] tags. But today, I couldn't C&P without getting the table formatting from the website, so I had to basically retype the whole thing.

    What strikes me is that is was a repeat and still made the top ten.

    It made the top ten for Sunday night broadcast primetime. There were only 13 different shows aired by the broadcast networks that night, so it was tied for 9th out of 13. Not really that impressive.

    The shows that had lower ratings were:

    11. A special airing of the Married With Children pilot episode - 1.3/4 2.930 million viewers.
    12. Dateline NBC - 1.2/4 4.160 million viewers
    13. Harry's Law - 0.9/3 8.620 million viewers

    Good point. The draft started at 5 pm here on the best coast, but in the east it definitely conflicted with network primetime.

    Sweeps always starts on a Thursday and ends on a Wednesday four weeks later, so it just depends on how the calendar falls for which date the periods will actually begin. Almost always, it will start on the final Thursday of the previous month rather than starting a few days into the actual sweeps month.

    Is it just me or do the numbers seem down across the board?

    They are. And according to TVBTN, it happens every spring.

    But given how many shows are hitting series lows, it's not just a spring thing. It's also an indication that ratings are sinking across the board.

    Geezers are set in their ways and won't change products/buy new products because of marketing, so advertising dollars are wasted on them.

    (Heck, I hopefully was almost always like that.. the only ads I can think of that really affect me are movie ads informing me about a new movie coming out [though that usually means 'add it to netflix' to watch in the following YEARS, so the ad wasn't too effective], or fast food ads with some new burger or something.. and even those are _rarely_ effective to get me to actually go buy one.)

    True in the 1970s -1990s. Not so true now. Younger demos just don't have the disposable money they once did. As I said, this isn't your grandpa's older demo. Today's older demo, raised on tv ads, and mass technology is willing to try new things. So I don't think that's the case anymore. I'm more likely to believe that it's HARDER to sell to the younger demos, so you may have to spend more to gain them. But the question is, is that really a wise strategy these days?

    Looks like Touch has fallen to the point where it probably won't be renewed.

    Again, according to TVBTN, this is a trend that has been going on for decades. Given the expansion of cable and online viewing/DVR usage/OnDemand/etc., it's not really a surprise.
