The highest-rated TV show of the season
So, what do you think it is?
Was it the debut episode of this season's American Idol? Was it the season opener of 24? Or maybe the half-season-ender of Lost a few months ago? The season opener of Grey's Anatomy?
Nope. The highest-rated TV show of the season so far was the third episode of Ghost Whisperer! OK, I'm kidding. The actual highest-rated show after the jump.
It's the New England Patriots/Indianapolis Colts AFC championship game from this past Sunday!
The game got a 28.1 Nielsen rating and captured a 40 share. That translates to "a lot of people watched it." It probably helped that it was a night game, starting around 7pm on the east coast.
The game wasn't that high-rated in my household though. I think my roommate slammed a couple of things and screamed several times. The Pats really blew it. But congrats to the Colts, they deserve it. I just hope Peyton Manning isn't too busy filming commercials for various products and finds time to play in the Super Bowl.
