    Very impressive #s.
    Lets see if it can retain most of these viewers.

    Very interesting that online views are a small percentage of the overall views.

    Crowd effect. Pretty sure people will tune in just couse those huge numbers-it has to be good, right? I won’t return for next episode – very dissapointed considering all the hype.Old story with nothing to be impressed about.

    Flop on its 2nd episode

    On something like this we do at least get to see how many people watch online. For a show like this, it amounted to a 13% increase over the Live + Same Day viewership. Considering all the fan excuse bingo that goes on with speculation about online viewing, data like this is useful to have.

    At first I wasn’t sure if it was going to work for television. But it’s pretty entertaining so far… though the rerun around episode 5 was a disappointment.
