Waiting for Viewer Numbers...

Those who just can't wait can check out the early metered market numbers from Marc Berman.  But before weighing in on last night's numbers, I want to see the *viewer* numbers.  Often jumping to conclusions about things from the early metered market numbers is completely without merit.  Plus we're trying to keep our server up and running and would like to hold off on another planned upgrade until this weekend if we can, and a headline like "Terminator, Chuck...Suck" might crash our server.

BTW, I watched both shows last night and didn't think either sucked.   For me, Chuck is just a remarkably consistently fun show.  Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles isn't the same type of show as Chuck.  It's more like Heroes and Battlestar Galactica.  Compared to those two shows, TSCC has handled the consistency issues very well. I enjoyed last night's episode a lot.  But I also enjoyed (for the first time this year!) Heroes.

It is possible that a nasty head cold and the cold medicine impaired my judgment...

I'll save the commentary on the ratings for when I have seen the viewer numbers and the demos, and besides Chuck and TSCC are going to air all season anyway.  I see little point in worrying about next year right now, we'll have March, April and May to do that...
