If FlashForward’s ratings drop this Thursday, blame the Aussies!
Get out your bingo cards! I’m not sure if there is a square on any of the cards that reads “everyone already watched it via Torrent download or illegal streaming sites,” but if there isn’t, there will be in future generations of the cards.
James Hibberd reports that with our Thanksgiving holiday the Australians got an episode ahead (and presumably will remain so at least for another couple of weeks) and have unleashed it into the wild via Torrent downloads and other illegal streaming sites. What Hibberd didn’t report is that just like in the USA, FlashForward’s ratings have tanked in Australia since the premiere.
