'The Simple Life' a Hit But Drops Eleven Percent From Premiere
MediaWeek's Marc Berman, who writes a daily column summarizing television rating from the night before provides the facts on Paris Hilton's "The Simple Life" and his edict: a hit but not a big one.
Marc wrote today, "On Fox, week two (and episode three) of The Simple Life took the 8:30 p.m. half-hour with an 8.3/12 -- 46 percent above repeat lead-in That'70s Show (#4: 5.7/ 9). Comparably, The Simple Life was down 11 percent from last Tuesday's premiere (9.3/13 on Dec. 2). The prognosis: Paris and Nicole are a hit, but far from a massive one."
If they'd just get to the damn lip locking and skirt lifting, maybe ratings would shoot up again.
