TV Ratings

Enough about theatrical animation. How is Fox's Animation Domination doing? It seems pretty well.

[Thanks to the NFC playoffs,] "The Simpsons" jumped nearly 300 percent to a 6.8 rating in 18-49-year-olds, followed by the series premiere of Napoleon Dynamite which pulled an impressive 4.6 rating in the demo -- almost double that of recent time slot holder Allen Gregory. Family Guy and another Napoleon Dynamite rounded out the night with a 4.4 and a 3.6, respectively. Fox averaged 20.2 million for the night with a 8.0 rating among adults 18-49.

In the meanwhile, ABC and CBS are getting kicked in their scrawny, undernourished backsides ratings wise. Since ABC is owned by the Mouse, which ... so I've heard ... has quite a background with different kinds of cartoons, one would think that the alphabet network would try a frontal assault with some serious cartoon programming.

But such, sadly, is not the case.

I'm surprised Allen Gregory even lasted as long as it did.

Hey if they put actual jokes in one of these programs they'd make a killing..
