Washington Post TV writer Lisa de Moraes sings the ratings praises of TLC's D.C. Cupcakes which averaged over 1.1 million viewers on Friday night. That TLC is based in the D.C. suburbs and that the cupcake shop is in D.C. is about as close as it gets to Jupiter aligning with Mars when it comes to writing for the Washington Post about Friday night ratings. The swipe at the CW was just a bonus:
Yes, we know, CW was airing reruns -- of "Smallville" and "Supernatural." But shouldn't CW be attracting more viewers than a little show on TLC about two siblings and their small business in D.C., even if their business is cupcakes -- the new status fetish?
