Sunday's Cable Top 5

Sunday's Top 5 Nielsen Twitter Ratings

Official numbers aren't in yet, but the Game of Thrones finale delivered 7.1 million viewers at 9pm which was an increase of 32% vs. last seasons finale. 


These are the worst TV weeks aren't they? I don't have much to watch at all. Anything out there you think I need to binge? I'm open for suggestions! 

If you've watched 24, you know that in order to maximize your enjoyment level, you need to embrace the ridiculousness and just go with it. When you're watching, you have to call out these ridiculous things right away. Could be a drinking game really. Jack JUST so happens to have a surgeons gigantic medical kit handy. He just so happens to know EXACTLY where to cut the president open to take out his transponder (who knew the President had a transponder?) He has such magical surgical skills that the Prez barely bled, needed no stitches and was fine with just a Band-Aid. After the anesthesia free surgery, Jack and the Prez snuck out of wherever they were, walked down the street without a disguise, hopped a helicopter and found Wembley Stadium without GPS. Pretty sure electricity isn't free in London, but all the lights were on in Wembley and to make it super easy to get in, the gates were all open. See what I mean…just go with it. President Heller walked to the center of the stadium, took his glasses and hat off and just waited. I get it, the guy has Alzheimer's, didn't want to deal with it, so Margo's timing was pretty good and of course before he departed for death, the Prez pardoned Jack Bauer of all crimes. Of course Margo had face recognition software to make sure she was killing the right guy and…SHE DID! She actually killed the Prez and messed Wembley up pretty good in the process. I honestly thought that Chloe would come up with something to stop the drones, but in a year of crazy deaths, even 24 got in on the action. 


-I need to know how long it takes to do one of these. Brian Williams is the awesome isn't he? Check it out: http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/segments/7461

Tuesday's Trivia Question:  Again…I know I said that June was EASY month, but with President Heller dead, it's only fair to pay tribute with a trivia question. The Prez was played by William Devane. What was the name of the character he played on one of my fave soaps ever…Knots Landing? Didn't you LOVE Knots Landing back in the day? All you people who have no idea what I'm talking about…hit Netflix!
