Big Ratings News! NBC viewership for Wednesday at 8 p.m. was up 50 percent from last week!!! The Peacock won this time slot for the first time all season!!!! What could be driving such success? Has Ben hit his stride? Did all the other networks lose power? Nope. It was the best of both worlds -- Knight Rider got the week off and was replaced by the Obama infomercial.
I smell another backdoor pilot? (Hmm...That term sounds crude. For those not in the industry, a backdoor pilot is when a network runs a made-for-TV movie that could morph into a series.)
It's either that or they'll just pass out these foam fingers at the next NBC staff meeting.
