Just got the rundown on the latest ratings numbers from the November book. Traditionally, the book comes out right before Christmas, providing a big lump of coal to somebody, but it was late this year.
Anyway, the big news is KOAA's big numbers. Despite having new competition from KRDO at 5 p.m. and at 6 p.m., KOAA was up in both timeslots. You can't expect KRDO to capture a huge audience right off the bat with its new format, but the RDO'ers have to be disappointed with their first sally.
KOAA was up at 10 p.m., too, while the other guys were roughly steady as she goes.
KXRM seems to have gotten some pop from its new, independent news. They were up from 9-9:30. The program tailed off sharply in the second half-hour, but it's a good sign for the future.
One other thing I found really interesting - KOAA finished second in primetime overall, compared to NBC's national fourth-place finish. That Sunday night Broncos game drew huge numbers, of course, but apparently the Springs is a hotbed for "Heroes" fans and "Deal or No Deal," too.
