  1. You know the Big Three went overboard with their content when they’re forced to air all-new lineups on low-rated Easter Sunday. Looks like only Fox took the holiday seriously. I’m not surprised by its low number since the “Grease Live!” DVD is now out. I got it for my birthday and watched it on Saturday.

  2. I’ll give every show a pass since it was Easter. LBS even with the large slippage was still solid at 10.3 million and a 1.9, if it goes up next week it’ll be more than okay.

    I thought given what the comedies were dealt they did okayish also especially Crowded since only slipped from a 2.5 to a 2.2, it’s viewership was at 3.6 million and an 0.8 in the demo barely down from last week. Carmichael was only going to do as well as LBS and it grabbed 4.7 million and a 1.0 in the demo.

      • I think a lot of people probably forgot to watch them but I love watching Carmichael and Crowded so I watched them both live.
