The 2006-07 season came to a merciful end last Wednesday. After the last season finale signed off for the night, all the important numbers were totalled and calculated and both FOX and ABC came away winners. ABC ended up with an impressive 6 series in the top 10, while FOX grabbed the season's #1 show in "American Idol". How did your favourite series do? Take a look here at the complete list which I printed from the Hollywood Reporter website.

Not good news for sitcom fans. Only 3 placed in the Top 40 and only 8 new ones are planned for the fall among the Big 4 networks. The 5th, the CW network, created some excitement last fall as they prepared for their first season, but, in the end, they fared no better than UPN and WB before the big merger. Their top program "America's Next Top Model" came in at a whopping 113th. Remind me again why this was such a good idea. (Poor Veronica Mars! Do you see now why it was cancelled? I'll miss her. She was hot!)

Overall, I look at the chart this way:

WINNERS

American Idol (again!)
Heroes - highest ratings among new series
The CSI franchise
Dancing With The Stars (Why????)
Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? - the surprise hit of the year

LOSERS

Studio 60
NBC Thursdays - how the mighty have fallen
ABC Wednesdays
Dateline NBC
The Simpsons - It's over already! Please end it soon!

Memo to NBC: Better luck next year! You'll need it!

Good! That'll teach them for interrupting a hockey playoff game during overtime for some freakin' horse race as they did a week ago last Sat. Anyone who's that stupid deserves what they get!

I love the NHL. But it was getting about as many viewers as Mama's Family reruns get on Ion. When they switched to the Preakness pre-show, the ratings jumped 5x.

I'd make the same decision they made, EVERY time.

Wow, NBC continues to slump and this has been a growing trend ever since Friends left the air back in 2004. Some of these shows that are being renewed barely in the top 100 on the big 4 :rolleyes:

Watch the playoffs on the CBC (http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/stanleycup2007/) if you can.

I watch the playoffs all the time on CBC. They're simply the best when it comes to covering hockey and have been for the last 54 years. NBC and other US networks can take a lesson from CBC but usually they don't listen and the coverage suffers as a result.

Read in the 6/11/07 Edition of TV guide that Be Silverman who just took over as cochairman of NBC's entertainment division and production studio has these Two Shows on his HIT LIST

Ugly Betty

The Office

That top 10 is totally ridiculous. Dancing with the Stars results show takes up 25% of it! Crock of crap.

16, 19, 22, 23 for my favs. Could be worse. And yay, CSI beat GA.

CBS had nothing in the 100s. That's pretty awesome. Half of Fox's lineup was down there. lol

Not to half of Canada it isn't.

I'd rather watch NHL than Horse Racing and I don't like either.

Don't forget the Brady Bunch! Wasn't Buddy Hinton a little blond kid that kept making fun of Cindy because of the way she talked? "Baby talk, baby talk,..."
And then Peter starts a fight with him. That was a great episode!

Then toe nail clipping must be 10X more exciting than football, which is a lot duller than hockey anyday
