    I wonder how high the ratings will go for Michael Phelps. Is 40 million possible?

  • jenny

    Michael Phelps is ugly. Go Ryan Lochte!

  • thomas

    but Michael Phelps lost!

  • JakeSnake

    lol you knew Glass House would be hurt by the Olympics just like everything else, but that’s pathetic.

  • Alan

    Only people who look like supermodels (like jenny) should win medals! They should test for ugliness as well as drugs at the Olympics! Jenny is wonderful!

  • John A

    Cant believe Remodeled was adjusted up lol.

    I just had a thought about the Olympics and the overall TV ratings. NBC has been pulling about 30 to 40 million viewers for these games so far, and while it has been impacting the ratings of all the other network and cable channels, I don’t think it’s been that much of a factor as people think it is. If you look at the ratings for the network programs for the couple of weeks prior to the Olympics, NBC was leading with America’s Got Talent, but it was only pulling around a 3.0 and averaging about 10 million viewers to lead all programs. The average ratings for network TV this summer has ranged from 1.3 to 2.0, and in the wake of the Olympics the overall average for other network programs went down about about one to three tenths of a percentage point. So are all those viewers bailing out of the other network shows to watch the Olympics? Not likely.

    But what about cable? Sure, NBC is probably having some impact on that, but once again, it’s not like cable viewers are abandoning Falling Skies, Breaking Bad, The Closer, and True Blood in droves to watch the Olympics. And it’s not like the daytime cable shows were any juggernauts in the ratings either. I don’t think viewers are abandoning Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, Judge Judy, Drs. Phil and Oz, Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob Squarepants, any of the wedding and baby shows on TLC, the cooking shows on Food Network, or the old reruns on TNT, USA, and A&E to watch the Olympic coverage on the NBC affiliated networks. So where are the Olympic viewers coming from?

    Considering this is summertime, a lot of people watch little or no TV during the summer, as they are out watching movies at the multiplex, having barbecues and backyard get-togethers, going camping, or just doing some summer reading. I would think that many of those people who would otherwise not be watching TV are tuning in to the Olympics. After all, this is a huge event, and Americans love big events.

    Interesting…given this night’s numbers, it looks like the O isn’t skewing particularly young or told – both 18-49 and total are coming in at about 10% of their respective populations.

    This seems a bit unusual, as sports normally skew young, right?

    Monday Final Averages

    Million Viewers = 8.59 Million Viewers
    18-49 Demo Average = 2.8 Average

    Anyone getting upset that NBC is not showing the bulk of the scores after they show an athlete perform?

  • Patrick

    Yes – I want to see the scores! Why are they doing that!!

  • Training

    The tape delay is actually good for NBC b/c they profile all of the most watched athletes and events and there’s little down time like there is during the day when everything is live.

    Rio could be huge though but they won’t have Michael Phelps, so Missy Franklin is going to need to step up big time.

    I am catching up on my DVR’d supply of movies and series during this time. It’s great!

  • Bumfuzzled

    Amazing that the gymnastic announcers fail to provide scores. Case in point, last night the last U.S. gymnast. We never were provided with a score, only the team score. Very poor on NBC’s part!
