HEY HEY HEY!!!!!!!! That's MY running gag!! Don't make me go all cholo on your ass! XP
ABC (ended 2012)
Ok, the ratings are in! DH averaged 3.3 for the two hours and 11.1045 million viewers. Not what I was expecting, but its up 6 tenths from the previous episode.
I am disappointed by those numbers. I was really hoping for at leats 12 million viewers.
But hey, we went out on a season high. And it was the highest rated episode since the 150th episode (Searching) which got 11.35 million viewers and a 3.4 in the demo.
HALF-HOUR BREAKSNOT MUCH OF A RISE THERE, BUT IT'S BEEN CONSISTENTLY TRENDING!

I wish it had gotten at least 13 but what can you do? The show just wasn't the ratings powerhouse it once was. If they had renewed for season 9, it could have possibly gotten cancelled midseason.
|I know this season has had budget cuts, but I heard they were saving all their money for the finale. Apart from bringing back heaps of people, it didnt look like it could have cost as much as other episodes.|
I loved seeing all of those faces from the past, I know some people complained on other boards about there being too many they didn't recognize (I recognized them all) and then complaining that there weren't more ghosts, but I thought it was perfect as it was. Would I have liked to have seen Ida, Matthew, Eli, Edie and Victor? Maybe even the original Dylan, have a little girl holding hands with Mrs. Simms?Well sure, but I'm not going to get all bent out of shape about it.
I WOULD have liked some follow up this season on what happened with Susan and Lynette's mothers though.
I think it was because of her hair. We'd been used to seeing it look all....cancer-y (for lack of a better term) and in ghost form she had a full head. I BAWLED though when I saw her with her son.
I do have to say I'm surprisedDeirdre wasn't included. It would have been neat to see her with Mike or something.
