Patriots-Broncos Game Doesn’t Set Ratings Record But Still Big With Brady-Tebow

If only Tim Tebow and the Broncos were more competitive against the Tom Brady-led Patriots… Last night’s New England Patriots’ blowout 45-10 win over the Denver Broncos posted a 20.6/23 overnight household rating/share. It didn’t set a ratings record as some had predicted given the great hype and built-up anticipation for the Tebow-Brady clash, but still posted the highest rating for an NFL  Divisional playoff primetime game on any network in the metered markets in 11 years.

Mike Sitrick, Shame On You…

Which is why he should be filled with self-loathing for allowing his firm to promote a torture porn pic like Captivity, much less an even more disgusting premiere party whose selling point was its political incorrectness. (Let me make it perfectly clear: I support talent’s right to make the movie, just not business people profiting from it.) Sure, I received all those inane emails announcing the bash, and I did the right thing: I trashed them. Other journalists fell all over themselves covering the event so as to diss it: really, they’re lemmings hurling themselves off the cliff. There is only one way to stop the business of these torture porn movies: by shaming the people who receive money for releasing them, publicizing them, having anything to do with them. So, Mike, how could you? (And how could you, After Dark’s  Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman?) Take that Captivity money and donate it to charity and pledge publicly right now you’ll never get involved with torture porn pics again. Until Mike does, I urge Hollywood and other companies to shun Sitrick and Company because there is such a thing as guilt by association.
