We don't usually append notes to press releases, but I'll make an exception here: 'The Chew's' results for last week were inflated due to its premiere on 9/26 which had a 0.9 rating with women 18-49, but by the end of the week it was down to a 0.6 rating with women 18-49.  For the full week it ended with a 0.7 rating with women 18-49, lower than the year ago run of 'All My Children" which scored a 0.9 for the same week last year.
