Blown the transmission

Bad news. The American viewing public continues to demonstrate their idiocy. From Media Week:

Second in the 8 p.m. hour behind Dancing With the Stars was NBC’s Deal or No Deal at a 7.1/11 in the overnights. Next were CBS comedies How I Met Your Mother (4.3/ 7), which was a repeat, and The New Adventures of Old Christine (5.1/ 8), followed by Fox’s struggling Drive (3.3/ 5), and CW comedies Everybody Hates Chris (2.1/ 3) and All of Us (1.8/ 3). One week earlier, Drive debuted in the time period with a 3.7/ 6. See you in the loser’s circle, Drive.

Sigh. Deal or No Deal? Doubling the audience for Drive? You're kidding right? As Liz Lemon would say: "Blurgh!!!"

We'll probably (hopefully!) see the remaining two episodes filmed and produced, before Drive joins the long, lamented list of "brilliant but cancelled." Fuck you, lowbrow Nielsen families, and just for good measure, fuck you Howie Mandel.
