Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings


  • Mad for these men. Mad Men scored big in its second-season premiere on Sunday, drawing just under 2 million viewers — up a million from its first-season average.
  • Secret's out. The Secret Life of the American Teenager registered a pretty significant jump in viewers this week, drawing 3.6 million viewers — which, for some perspective, is better than any single episode of Gossip Girl ever did.
  • Bravo, Bravo. Bravo's Wednesday night reality shows continued to do well this week, with Project Runway nabbing 3.3 million viewers and Shear Genius not far behind with 3 million of its own.
  • Well-attended lecture. A Primetime special about Randy Pausch and The Last Lecture drew 7.6 million viewers on Tuesday, winning its timeslot.
  • Bright flash. Flashpoint has been a success ever since CBS swapped it from Friday nights to Thursdays. This week, it drew 7.6 million viewers, almost equal with the CSI repeat that led into it.
