It’s a Celebration!
Why are these guys celebrating? Check it out after the jump to see…..
“I have the #1 Reality Show on TV.”
President Obama’s televised press conference last week was #1 in the ratings. It garnered 29 million viewers over all the major networks combined. It had no other network competition. So, IMO, it doesn’t count. That is why the cast from ER is celebrating. That would put it’s show in the #20 spot on the Nielson list & the first NBC sighting in over a month! Way to go ER! With only one episode left in it’s 15 year series run, it’s back on the list.
