It's not unusual for SpongeBob to be all over the cable top 20, but with the debut of the SpongeBob movie, Atlantis SquarePantis our squarepanted friend is soaring to new highs -- taking seven out of the top ten spots, and almost, but not quite, the top spot. Of course if you add up all the individual airings, Bob rules.
Also of note are the diminishing MNF ratings. It's been all over the map this year, but while Monday Night Football retained the top spot, it fell below nine million viewers. Last week it was around ten million and two weeks ago it was over fourteen million. Do you blame the matchups or Tony Kornheiser? I loved Kornheiser in the Washington Post, and Gorman and I both love him on ESPN's Pardon the Interruption. But on MNF? Not so much.
CNN lands a rare top 20 appearance with the Democrat's Presidential Debate and Hannah Montana doesn't make the list (she was #21)
