"healthy ratings"?!!?

We must have an entirely different definition of "healthy"...

As to adding Shawn Ryan, this is yet another decision tainted with hype over reality syndrome.

The Shield was a perennially low-rated show with a lot of hype spread thick to hide that fact.

Mr. Ryan than ran The Unit which had at best oh-hum ratings (which I guess the writer of this article would call "healthy" ;))

Maybe he'll do great, but it seems like an odd choice to brings ratings up for this show.

A small kudo to the writer of the article for mentioning the Idol lead-in (and lead-out) but mentioning averages on new shows is entirely misleading as the ratings for the latest episodes is a lot more telling (but of course doesn't lend itself to PR spin).

Tell me when this thread is updated:
