  • THE OLD MAN

    Hooray for Hollywood…

  • Pundit

    American Idol seventh in demo and overall? Euthanize it, Fox

  • Blergmeister

    Why is the Red Carpet event listed as three separate shows? It was a live, continuous event on the same channel. That would be like listing the Super Bowl as a pre-halftime program and a post-halftime program. It’s a cheap ploy to have them grab more top spots on the list.

  • David C

    Not that any more proof was needed but there isn’t ONE title on either list that is an NBC series.
