    I’m with you on them winning an award but before we give them one, get a dictionary and take a look at similar sounding words.

    It’s ‘their’ not ‘there’.

    ABC was most likely actually the second most watched network. ESPN was likely the most watched network with MNF.

    @Max Vrany

    ABC, ESPN, both are owned by Disney so it’s a win-win either way.

    Too bad you’re in 4th place in the demo though.

    These shows did do good last night. ABC was the most-watched television network. That does mean something, meaning most people watching TV last night were watching ABC.

    However, not so good in the demographic.

    Give this press release the Harry’s Law Memorial Award.

    I have to chuckle; it’s getting sort of hard to praise “Castle” without pointing out “DWTS” weakness. :-)
