Put it up against stiff competition and then lets see how many viewers keep this garbage afloat.
It is a huge hit of the summer. Its not its fault its up against weak competition. If it was up against better shows, then it couldn't say that but it is and the ratings point to it being a huge hit. In addition, just because it is up against weak competition, does not mean America is forced to watch the show just because the competitioion, they are free to turn off the TV or turn to something on cable, watch a movie, etc. but no they are turning in. Just because a show has weak competition doens't mean it gurantees it is a hit, people have to still come back because they are enjoying what they are watching. If they didn't like it or hate it, they wouldn't turn it on because oh well, I hate it, but nothing else to watch. There are hundreds of channels, movies, DVD, DVR recordings of other shows, on-demand, pay-per view, read a book, play a game, etc. but no, they tune in.
