Out of all the things going on Wednesday night - the most startling was - see if you can spot it...
That's right, Lethal Weapon 4, a 13 year old film starring Hollywood Persona Non Grata Mel Gibson found over 1.1 million viewers in an age where new release films routinely struggle to get half that.
There's hope yet for Mel even if Hollywood has turned their back on him. I myself am skeptical of the weird American double standard that sees Gibson sidelined while Chris Brown is making a comeback after punching a woman in the face.
Elsewhere the show that runs forever, Heartbeat (surely they must be in the 80s by now!) is the top digital draw while the heavily advertised Bob's Burgers has a mild debut with 120,000 viewers
