Oh $#*!: Ratings for Dad Says Are Huge

ShatnerThumbnail.jpgYou can't say anyone saw this coming. Buoyed by the tremendous lead-in provided by The Big Bang Theory, 12.5 million people watched $#*! My Dad Says last night, making it one of the biggest hits of the fall season. The William Shatner-led comedy held onto 81 percent of The Big Bang Theory's audience, meaning only 19 percent of The Big Bang Theory fans have taste. [Deadline]

    What is wrong with people?

  • Martini Shark says:

    Just imagine how much bigger the numbers would have been if all those dumb #*%@* learned how to program their #*%# DVRs.

  • Bronson says:

    This would have worked better as an SNL sketch. As a show, it was spent before the first commercial break. Oh if it weren't for the sweet, sweet $$$ from the 'Ow, My Balls!' demo...

  • sweetbiscuit says:

    How on earth can you say this means it's "a hit?" What it means is lots of people tuned in to see what it's like. Let's check the numbers in the coming weeks. I watch lots of pilots, doesn't mean I'm always a fan. Just sayin'.

  • The Winchester says:

    How long until they start referring to it in short hand and just start calling it "Shat"?

  • TurdBlossom says:

    Remember last September when Jay Leno had Kanye West on after his MTV debaucle the ratings were huge too...

  • Plan says:

    I thought Shatner was great, but then again I'm a fan.
    However, the dude who played his son looked like he was way over his head. I'm no judge of acting talent, but he was smiling awkwardly and looked nervous the entire show. The fact that Shatner was so calm and hilarious made the contrast even worse.
    As for Big Bang Theory, it looks like the series is going to be a Jim Parsons highlight reel from here on out.

  • Boomer says:

    I saw this coming. It has a lead in that gets great numbers and CBS publicized the hell out of it. Unfortunately, all those that tuned in now know how awful it was.
