Are we really fighting over tv ratings? I think the real question here is, how did these 870,000 sit there and watch perez speak for god knows how long

2011 season finale:
The Ned-Liest Catch
5.25 million viewers and a 2.5 rating
2012 season finale:
Lisa Goes Gaga
4.79 million viewers and a 2.1 rating
This isn't so much a reflection of Gaga's impact. It would be much wiser to look how this season fared as a whole against last season. Simply comparing two season finales and trying to make it reflect negatively (or even positively) on Gaga is truly laughable
From Final ratings... Gaga got 10,000 more viewers than Perry. In other words, there's really nothng to be crowing about. Both set of numbers suck and both sets of numbers are also not far away from each other.
Perez has only had two airings on the CW.
Last week he had:
800,000 viewers and a 3.1/01
This week he had:
810,000 viewers and a 3.1/01
Also this means "Lord Gaga" didn't get the weeks highest rating on the CW. Wednesday's new edition of ANTM did (that was the only other "new" programming on the network this past week).
Even though none of these ratings are all that great, Katy scored 800,000 viewers going up aganist American Idol last week. Gaga pulled in about the same for a night with no competition.
Sometimes when you crow you end up having to eat crow.
