American Gladiators big, but no match for NFL playoffs

by Paul William Tenny

NBC scored very well with the completely pathetic renewal of American Gladiators on Sunday night, hauling in a hefty 12 million viewers to win its time slot and stands as a network best season premier. Then again, there isn't exactly a lot else to watch on NBC and the other networks with the writers strike dragging on into its third month.

Even so, CBS still crushed competition for the night with its AFC wildcard game between the Titans and Chargers, with a monster 32 share. Even 60 minutes with Roger Clemens bought home the bacon, boring a record 20 million people to death and making us all ponder what life would be like on dry land.

The rest of the ratings slog is here, if you're interested.
