Arsenio Hall may want to have PRINCE on his late night talk show a lot more often. The reclusive music icon more than doubled Arsenio's audience in the takeover special that aired last night.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Arsenio's ratings jumped 50 percent in the 18-49 demographic with Prince's appearance, giving him his youngest viewing audience to date.
In total, ratings were up 56% for Arsenio in all households and higher than his February sweeps numbers. Arsenio was also trending on Twitter for a majority of the night due to the purple one's appearance.
It tied him with Jimmy Kimmel and for the first time since his opening week, gave him higher ratings than Conan O'Brien and Chelsea Handler. Arsenio did trail Jimmy Fallon whom it is being reported has started a booking war that people have to appear on The Tonight Show first before appearing anywhere else. We have a feeling Fallon will make an exception for Prince.-DocFB
Diagnosis: PRINCE is high on everyone's booking list including Ellen, who on Monday had her highest rated show ever and this season has been her best ever ratings wise.
Ricky Gervais says after hosting the Golden Globes for a 3rd time, that he is done as host. He kinda said that last year though.
The Golden Globes drew in 16.8 million viewers, only slightly lower than last years 17 million. Still, it is the highest rated award show of the season, beating out the American Music Awards and the Emmys.
Ricky did a good job hosting. The problem was, after last year, we were expecting another no holds barred attack fest on actual celebrities, not talk of Kim Kardashian and her lame marriage.
We kind of want Ricky to be permanent host just because he gives you that factor of being unpredictable.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Billy Crystal, you are up next.....
I think I am the only one not surprised by this. Ratings for the 11 P.M. hour of cable were released and Chelsea Handler's "Chelsea Lately" show is beating the "Conan O'Brien" show soundly.
The ratings show Chelsea with over a 100,000 more viewers on a nightly basis than Conan. For those at Conan watching the ratings, they did see Chelsea creeping up on them, but no changes were made.
The 50 year old Jennifer Grey (yes, I said 50 year old) recieved the highest total on Dancing With The Stars and in return gave the show it's highest ratings in quite a while.
How high? The season premiere was watched by 3 times as many people who saw the season finale of the show last season. Even Jamie Lee Curtis knows this season is the shhhh.
Grey is our favorite to win it all and yes we know she has had dancing in her past but we wantthis girl to have a career again. Who knew getting a great nose job would ruin your career for the next 20 years?
Lady Gaga are you listening? Hehe.
So admit it. No one will know. Are you watching this seasons Dancing With The Stars?-Dr.FB
Chelsea Handler was Queen of the VMA's last night and the ratings don't lie!
Over 11 million people turned into the award show and it was the highest rated MTV Video Music Awards since 2002.
What did you think of the award show and Chelsea hosting?-Dr.FB
Just a question for you all, as Dancing With The Stars beat American Idol in the ratings last night for the first time I believe.
Let us know and thanks for participating.-Dr.FB
David Letterman's ratings are getting higher as his scandal for blackmail unfolds. He got a 5 in the ratings on Monday, as ratings were not high. It looks like Conan is barely getting half of that.
I am telling you again, Conan would kill for the attention Dave is getting right now.-Dr.FB
