Has Controversy Hurt "Swingtown" Ratings?
The image above shows just how far the orgies go on CBS' light adult drama "Swingtown." That didn't prevent those losers from the PTC (who still don't understand how to use their clickers) from playing the parent card again and start more brouhaha against the show. But has their noise actually hurt the ratings?
"Swingtown" did lose some groove shedding over one million pairs of eyeballs in its second outing last Thursday (7.25 million). But so far it's hard to say whether the PTC campaign has had any impact since most new dramas drop in week #2. So far, the show is doing as well as any new summer show airing at 10pm would be doing.
Will the show fade away as "Cane" did last fall or will it level off with NBA finals out of the way? I'll certainly be keeping my fingers crossed for the latter, as the period drama's fashion, music and vintage product placement (not to mention the wicked cast including a shirtless Grant Show) has kept me hooked.
