Last week's prime shows with the best ratings were #1 NCIS with an 11.7 rating. American Idol was #2 and #3 with a 10.8 and a 9.8. (Idol seems to be slipping a little this season.) NCIS :Los Angeles has the #4 spot with a 9.8 also. NBC's The Voice showed a respectable 9.4 rating.
Cable programing had Walking Dead leading with a 3.8 and Jersey Shore at #2 with a 3.5. CNN was a surprise ratings grabber. It ranked well with the special Whitney Houston programs that ran from noon to 4pm on Saturday and averaged a 3.2 rating.
March 25, after a contract dispute delay, Mad Men will begin Season 5 on AMC. The first show of the new season will be a two hour presentation. Since its first show in 2007, this critically acclaimed show about the advertising industry has attracted a very loyal audience. I can't wait to see what Don Draper has in store for us.
