    211,000 viewers???? Why did they make this sound like a big deal?

  • scfyi

    It is composed of the much sought after 18-34 male demo.

  • Columbo

    Because Jackie, Fueltv is such a crappy network that getting over 200,000 viewers is a milestone! Champagne all around!

  • Chris

    Yeah Jackie, Fuel TV is available in only 36 million homes and some providers such as Comcast don’t even carry it. So 211,000 viewers for Fuel TV is the equivalent of say, 7 million on those cable channels that are on basic packages.
