  3. Another nice number for Swimming as it continues to increase as the week goes. I didn’t watch it last night so I’m not sure if Michael Phelps or Missy Franklin swam yet but numbers will be up whenever they swim.

    AGT been so solid this year with Simon, he might be right about AGT being one of the last shows still around through the end of broadcast TV, that and Dancing with the Stars will be around for a super long time.

    Still on the low side for me with Uncle Buck due to that heavy NBA Finals promotion and compared to the Sunday game shows, doesn’t seem like To Tell the Truth has any interests.

      • Thanks Louis for the info, I taped last night’s meet and will watch it this afternoon before tonight’s meet. I know for sure Phelps swam last night as well.
