ESPN's Monday Night Football was again the number one program by a long shot, but notable second and third place finishers were MTV's Shot at Love: Tila Tequila and VH1's I Love New York 2. WWE Raw sewed up the fourth and fifth spots, with the sixth spot going to the NFL Network's Dallas Cowboys vs. Carolina Panthers matchup last Saturday. Holiday cable net movie staple, The Santa Clause and SpongeBob rounded out the top 10.

    I caught a piece of Keith Olbermann’s comments on MSNBC (28 Dec) and thought I was watching a Mad TV skit…wow, talk about BDS…lol. Does he really think any sober adult takes him seriously? Even my college age nephew him a tool. That pretty much sums him up perfectly-Keith “The Tool” Oblebrmann has a nice ring and maybe Keith just needs a fitting nickname to get his ratings off the basement floor.

    Any data for any of the bowl games on ESPN from Dec. 20-23? Just wondering.

    Technique, the UCLA/BYU bowl game is all that made the cable top 40 [which is all we see] for 12/17-23.

    Here are its numbers:

    Households 2.39m
    HH rating 2.1
    Avg. viewers 3.383.

    Unfortunately, our sports specific ratings information from Nielsen continues to be released very sporadically, so we don't have more detailed sports ratings information. I will poke them again and see if we can get updates.
