    Note to fans of my favorite drama in the history of television, House — it didn't fall off the list, it just wasn't on that week because of baseball playoffs.

    I gotta wonder how high those NBC shows would be on the list if they were still on iTunes.

    Seems to me that a lot of iTunes buyers are being forced to watch their NBC shows in a different way than they did last season.

    Of course, you also have to notice how few viewers NBC shows have.

    NBC may try to spin those numbers into reasons to promote The Office or Heroes more, but they don't change the overall low-level of their numbers (ie. it's easier to have a huge percentage bump when you're coming from very few viewers!)
