    Wow -35% in audience from the previous season is huge. Wish the producers didn't 'kill off' Vaughn at the beginning of the season then we would have probably gotten a 6th season.

    I find it disgusting that so many reality shows are in the top 10. Who watches that crap!?!?!?! It's so frustrating. I yearn for the pre-reality days

    I dont know what to think of ratings these days because you have to account for people recording shows, buying shows off itunes and watching the shows off the internet like off ABC.com.
