Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings


  • Not in the picture. High School Musical: Get in the Picture debuted to poor ratings with just 4 million people tuning in for its series premiere last Sunday night. To put that into perspective, a rerun of America's Funniest Home Videos garnered 5.5 million viewers that same night.
  • Talent triumphs. The number one watched show of the week was America's Got Talent with 12.9 million viewers watching on Tuesday night.
  • Wiping out the competition. Wipeout, which airs one hour before America's Got Talent on Tuesdays, was the second-most-watched program of the week with 9.9 million viewers.
  • Still dancing. So You Think You Can Dance did very well on both Wednesday and Thursday nights with 8.4 million and 8.3 million viewers respectively. I guess those 100,000 viewers didn't get to see who was sent home.
