Geeks vs Freak
If there is a show I feel sorry for right about now it's The Big Bang Theory. On it's third tryout on Nine making a concerted effort to find another sitcom to spin off of the Harper Bros the show has run smack bang into two solid weeks of Michael Jackson specials on Seven.
Last night Seven reaired the second hour of the Michael Jackson 30th Anniversary concert from 2001 (30th anniversary of his solo career), it came around the time of Invincible, an album which remains underappreciated because by the time of it's release Jackson's bizarre personal life had well and truly overshadowed whatever he was doing music-wise.
Desperate Housewives did even better for Seven booking 1,253,000 an increase over last week.
Supernatural was down 11%, the only thing letting down ten on an otherwise stellar night which saw Neighbours over 900,000 (a rare feat for the ancient soapie) and Masterchef up by 8% week on week heading for the finale.
