What To Do In Cleveland When You're Dead Not Watching Lebron

Friday, June 01, 2007



I was flipping through the overnight ratings from Game 5 last night, and came across this funny little note. While TNT earned a 4.8 overall, and a 19.6 in Cleveland, another show captured a good bit of city's viewing audience.

Somehow, "My Name is Earl" received a 6.6. And what's better.....It was a rerun!

Come on Cleveland! A repeat of My Name Is Earl?!?!?! God lord.....at least Detroit's second choice was a rerun of CSI.

TNT earned a 4.8 overnight Nielsen cable rating for Game Five of the Cavaliers-Pistons Eastern Conference Finals last night, which went into double OT. The game earned a 19.6/29 in Cleveland; the next highest rated program of the night in Cleveland was a repeat of "My Name is Earl" on NBC, which got a 6.6. Game Five pulled a 17.4/27 in Detroit, also the highest rated program in the market for the night. The next highest rated program was a "CSI" repeat on CBS, which did a 6.9- SBD: The Daily

Detroit turned in relatively low ratings, as 75% of the city was out auditioning for Cops.

And I like My Name Is Earl. Take it back, AA!

Detroit only watches CSI for hints on fooling the police.

Last Sunday, the Indy 500 rain delay had higher ratings than the NBA(seriously). That's beyond embarrassing..
