    NBC needs a press release for being last place? Sad yet funny.

  • jRobnyc

    They probably do these press releases for their advertisers (clients) in attempt to convince them to keep buying ads in these meager numbers. Duh. I know. Just my 2 cents.

  • rene

    This is so sad and funny at the same time. NBC needs to cancel itself.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    As soon as I read the title , I thought “Better grab the popcorn, this is gonna be good.”

  • TimsDale4ever

    NBC needs to put SEAN and MICHAEL out of their misery.

  • Jagger Dagger

    And the next press release from NBC will be:

    Sean Saves the World is the best thing on TV. The cast is very strong and the writing is excellent.
