Sorry for the delay with the Friday update, the least viewed night of Olympic viewing so far, with 17.73 million average for prime-time and a 5.4/18 (rating/share) among 18-49 year olds. No half hour of coverage averaged more than 20 million viewers. Friday night was the least viewed night last week as well. We'll see if Saturday rebounded a bit.
The Swingtown faithful weren't dying to know what the ratings were because they knew the show was preempted by an NFL pre-season matchup between the Steelers and the Vikings Dallas and Houston.
