      why would they even bother putting out a release??

      • TVisME

        That’s exactly what I was thinking. “We’re #2… with 0.5 in the demo!!!!”

        • JimU

          The other stations were pretty much airing test patterns last night.

        • vlis

          That’s just somebody doing their job and not thinking!

  • Swagsaad

    Gaga has the biggest views and more than the game and the halftime show

    • silvit

      given that the game was a dud it’s not surprising that some initial viewers bailed out

      • Swagsaad

        she was really amazing , she did a great job

        • silvit

          it doesn’t mean anything. You don’t tune in to see something that in insight turned out to be good, since you can’t know it in advance. On the other hand, if something turns out to be underwhelming especially in sport, you tune out halfway through it

    • She was amazing.
