A few months ago, I posted about former Disney head Michael Eisner and his new online project. Prom Queen has now ended its run of 80 (short) episodes and the results are in. “Tens of thousands” of viewers.
Wait, what was that? Tens of thousands of viewers? That’s what all the (alleged) excitement was about? I could get an audience that size doing shadow puppets in Times Square. And is that per episode or total for the 80 shows? Given that the number is so vague, I think we can safely assume that it’s in the LOW tens of thousands. If it wasn’t, they’d brag about an audience size of “nearly a hundred thousand.”
Woody Allen once said, “90% of everything is shit.” The Internet isn’t the Philosopher’s Stone; putting something on it doesn’t automatically transmute it into gold.
