    Most of the show was fun, so they deserve those ratings.

    Either most of the new cast members aren’t ‘the new ones’ any more, they have find some new talent.

    Wow, no rise in the ratings at all? Gaga’s lost her mojo. Eh. Whatever.

    I was very impressed with gaga. I thought she did a great job. Old lady gaga was great! Her performance with R Kelly was hot!

    Why should there be a rise? She garnered almost a million viewers more than Miley Cyrus did when she hosted/performed, and she is supposedly the new “it” girl in the industry.

    Viewers do not matter – Miley brought more people in the demo.
