On Sunday night, the Jets played their third game of the season against their division rival Dolphins. The game was opposite the Yankees and Red Sox on ESPN.
But the night belonged to the Jets and WNBC. The Nielsen Company reports an estimated 1.5 million people stayed with the tight game, as it pulled in a 7.5 rating. It was big numbers for Sunday Night Football, but not the biggest of the week.
Number one goes to WABC and the Monday night two-hour Dancing With The Stars (1.6 million/8.3). The Tuesday night result show was third (1.2 million/6.1).
WCBS’ highest ranking for the week was at four, with the 30-minute spillover from late afternoon NFL action (1.2 million/6.1).
The Glee season premiere gave WNYW its best showing in fifth place (1.1 millon/5.6).
More ratings highlights after the jump.
Today’s interview with tabloid media queen Bonnie Fuller in the Canadian Globe and Mail is worth reading for a thousand different reasons. For one thing, it’s hilarious.

“They put the wrong headline on the story,” snaps Bonnie Fuller, interrupting herself in the midst of an explanation about her new venture, Hollywoodlife.com…”I’ll be right back,” says Ms. Fuller, 53, as she leaps out of her chair to speak to the editorial team, composed of young women seated in cubicles outside her door.
“It’s supposed to say ‘Taylor Swift. New plaid, three days, three ways,’ ’cause it’s three different days and she wore it three different ways,” she explains.
Someone’s getting fired over Taylor Swift’s plaid ensemble. Amazing. But it gets even better.
If we hadn’t seen this ad with our own eyes last night on MTV, we would have never believed it to be real. Looks like the network has decided to base an entire reality series on a certain viral video about Jager bombs and new haircuts.
Yes, the upcoming series “Jersey Shore” will take a probing look at the fascinating sub-culture of the fist-pumping guido, a stereotype that has already been mocked to the point of exhaustion. In fact, MTV has already delved into this area a few times for its “True Life” series. Aren’t there some less annoying groups of people somewhere beyond the East and West Coasts that MTV could draw inspiration from?
