    Wow ratings at 8 PM were practially non-existent. It would be interesting to see what cable ratings were like at that point. I’m suprised that Lie to Me is doing so well. I found the show predictable and fairly boring. The only interesting parts were when they matched up facial expressions to pictures from history. And those were few and far between.

    over one million people watching repeats of 90210? i mean, i catch the episodes, but i haven’t seen a single one i’d want to revisit yet! haha

    wow, i guess it puts things into a little perspective with the ratings. i thought people might actually be interested in GOOD shows. especially since Lost has been nothing short of astounding.

    I unapologetically love ANTM but had no idea it was outperforming life on mars

    Well now you know, and as the saying goes, knowing is half the battle.

    I guess that would explain the whole cancellation thing. But it is pretty sad for the CW that one of their top shows just barely out performs a show that has been axed by ABC.
