Overnight TV Ratings -- "House" Rocking
"Idol" of course is doing smashing, scoring 28 million viewers. But "House" has really caught fire in the last month -- this week it hit 24.5 million viewers. People have been mentioning it to me repeatedly as something they've started to watch regularly and really enjoy. Could happen to a better Brit. If you want to make your head spin, watch Hugh Laurie as the clueless hero in the Britcom "Jeeves and Wooster," with Stephen Fry as the dependable butler Jeeves. Everything else paled in comparison to those two. "Scrubs" (5.89 mil) barely beat "Hope & Faith" (5.72 mil) and a new "Boston Legal" (9.95 mil) barely beat a rerun of "CSI: Miami" (9.93 mil) and a rerun of "Law & Order: SVU (9.1 mil). "Gilmore Girls" did fine (4.7 mil) but they must be thanking God for DVRs and Tivo. Directorboy didn't come over after work so I haven't watched it yet, so no spoilers!
