This is hilarious
From the LA Times:
ABC's debut of the reality show "The One: Making a Music Star," in which
young singing contestants live together in the same house, delivered the worst
ratings for any series premiere in the network's history and the second-worst in
broadcast TV history, according to Nielsen Media Research.
An average of 3.2 million viewers tuned in to the two-hour event Tuesday
night, or roughly one-third of the audience for a repeat of Fox's hit medical
drama "House" (9.1 million). The carnage among the target audience of adults
ages 18 to 49 was even worse, a miserable 3% of that crowd.
I almost never root for a show to fail, but if you're going to fail, fail spectacularly. It's like when Seattle nearly set a record last winter for consecutive days of rain. Yeah, it's miserable, but don't get close and then fall short. Embrace the misery!
