    I really wanted to see just one episode of happy endings reruns in here. I hope it got ok numbers though.

  • Ultima

    Compared to last year, the Rose Bowl Game was up 11% in A18-49 and 10% in viewers from a 4.7 rtg and 17.02 million viewers.

    The Fiesta Bowl was down from last year’s 4.0 rtg and 12.31 million viewers, but virtually flat with last year’s Orange Bowl (3.5 rtg and 10.56 million), which aired on New Year’s Day.

    That’s a lot of viewers for the Rose Bowl. Even though Stanford and Michigan St are not powerhouse programs. I guess it doesn’t matter who plays in the Rose Bowl it will always deliver in the ratings department. It could be powerhouses USC vs Ohio St or small timers like Arizona vs Iowa it would still deliver excellent ratings. That’s why it’s called the grandaddy of them all. The only game that beats it is the national title game.

    Thanks Amanda

  • Nick

    And they cancelled Happily Divorced why?

  • Mike

    @Nick So they could renew the lower rated Soul Man , in their minds that makes sense.

  • JR35

    The time switch didn’t do much for either TV Land show.
