Television ratings for Little People, Big World Roloff family November 30th

The weekly television ratings are in for Little People, Big World, but just before I get to that, a quick "ratings" (or traffic) note about this site.

Monday set an all time personal site record for number of hits, only to be exceeded on Tuesday. I never expected the blog to be as popular as it is. Nobody makes a single penny off the site, it's strictly for the fans; to be entertaining and informative. It is nice to be such a popular and trusted source of Roloff and LPBW news and information.

I'd like to take this time to publicly thank both of our two guest recappers/reviewers, Rap and Expressed for their contributions and the time and effort they put into it. It's been a nice addition to the blog. Thank you both.

I'd also like to thank all of those who have helped contribute to the site (you know who you all are!) as well as those who have emailed once or twice with scoops or Roloff sightings and general ideas or suggestions for the site. A big 'Thank you' to all.

Now onto the television ratings for LPBW this week. Back from a week layoff thanks to the Jon and Kate Plus 8 finale, LPBW returned with almost identical ratings of their last televised show, November 16th. Ratings of 1.5 for the 8pm episode and 1.7 for the 8:30 episode. It did however beat Cake Boss at 9pm (Cake Boss had been higher than LPBW in previous weeks). Cake Boss drew 1.502 million viewers.

The Season 5 premiere of LPBW started with ratings of 1.864 and 2.198.
The season high was on Nov 2nd with a 2.110 and 2.410.

Congratulations on the traffic! I'm sure the number is huge everyone talks about this site being the #1 source to find out info on LPBW and the Roloffs. Keep doing a great job Spirit! WE all should thank you for taking time out of your life to post... For no personal profit no less. Great job!

I hope the numbers of the show increase, maybe matts letter really was a goodbye. He might just be seeing the writing on the wall. Its time to step it up Roloffs and TLC!

I have to concur with M - you're doing a great job, Spirit!

Expressed said...

You're welcome! Thank you too, like M said.

Wouldn't we all want our chance to be producer of the show and change the direction of the show to see if ratings would improve?

More realness. More Jeremy. Less fake drama. Less boring "educational" stuff.

I'd like to add stop repeating story lines to the list Expressed.

Uh, don't get the obsession with Jeremy. I mean, he's cute, but so are a ton of other guys. I don't care for Jacob but THAT kid is gonna be drop-dead gorgeous, you can just tell.
I love LPBW but if Amy keeps up her anger issues with her husband, I'm done. I don't want another repeat of Kate Gosselin here

"Uh, don't get the obsession with Jeremy."

But he's sooo haaaaaaawt.............*giggle*

Never mind that he's dumb as a rock & basically useless, to the Tiger Beat set, that's all that matters.

To the first anonymous, the reason why there are millions of adoring Jeremy Roloff fans has much more to do with just looks. Jeremy is a wonderful Christian boy who is a role model to many other kids around the world. Jeremy is a loving son who graciously helps his physically limited father with work around the farm. Jeremy volunteers his time to sing to others with his church choir as well as working with such worthwhile charities as Habitat For Humanity. He truly is a gifted worker with his hands, much like a certain carpenter i hold dear to my heart. God blessed Matt and Amy with a truly wonderful gift in Jeremy.

To anonymous number 2. You should be ashamed of yourself for such vile remarks. Please seek help for your obvious jealousy and hatred. You spread falsehoods derived from your own lack of self worth.

Why haven't we seen any of these many wonderful acts of Jeremy's on the show? Maybe the choir decided they didn't need Jer's brand of publicity, but where's the charity work? The only HforH project shown on the show was in Mississippi, and all the family participated.

And as for that gracious help? I remember Matt handing out big bills to Jer and his friends to get them to do some work around the farm.

Now, I'm sure Jer is a mostly normal 19-year-old who has found himself in an enviable position. For nothing more than being himself, he gets to go on fabulous trips, hang out with his buds, and earn a substantial amount of money doing so. In return, however, his life, and that of his family's, becomes an open forum. If we don't like what we see, we get to say that. If he doesn't want to be the object of our speculation and analysis, he can remove himself from the show at any time.

Roloffsrule, this is Anonymous #2. You're absolutely right, I'm jealous of Jeremy, Insanely jealous (lol). I'm just Kelly Green with envy of a 19 year old MAN who can't figure out how to use a phone book, has no idea how to set an alarm clock, couldn't register his car without his mommy leading him by the hand and paying for it and judging by his grades & study habits, probably couldn't spell cat if you spotted him the "C" and the "T".

Last I heard, "good christian boys" Didn't refer to latinos as "beaners" or Mexico as "that beaner place", don't refer to black people as "niggers", homosexuals as "faggots" or Jews as "kikes". Nor do they excuse the casual use of these racial/anti-semetic/homophobic slurs as "just being kids". If this is acceptable, indeed praisewrorthy in your brand of Christianity, then I want no part of it. Call me a heathen, call me what you want. I don't care. If I end up burning in Hell for eternity it won't be because YOU sent me there. It was this brand of "Christianity" that initiated the Crusades & ushered in the Dark Ages. Is that what you secretly pine for?

And as for "seeking help", might I suggest you do the same for equating Jeremy Roloff with Jesus of Nazareth (*a certain carpenter I hold dear to my heart*.....your words). That makes about as much sense as someone else equating him with Adolph of Munich.
