Why is this week’s primetime/total-day viewership chart the same as last week’s? Because no thanks to Time Warner Cable’s fantabulous “customer service”, I don’t actually have Internet of my own at the moment and so can’t concentrate for long enough to work on my newest idea for how to organize them. These numbers are for the week of October 20-26. Click here to learn more about how to read the charts.
