    that 1995-1997 run with NBC holding the top 5-6 spot is incredible. You could put anything between Friends and Seinfeld and it would be a hit. On the flip side it created unreal expectations and saw the excellent The Single Guy cancelled despite pretty good ratings

    also interesting to see one network start to dominate with a unique show genre, then the others play copy cat ( bonanza & gun smoke, Dallas and dynasty, family based sitcoms, reality show explosion).

    CBS has always just dominated the industry. Other than NBC's golden era of the late-80s, and the disasterous mid-90s, CBS usually had over half the shows in the top ten or so.

    CBS shows are such garbage these days, why do people watch that channel so much?

    I always wondered if they had an advantage by being the channel that was on when you turned your TV on...
    (FYI, when I was a kid, the tv automatically turned on to channel 2.)

    Gray vs Grey I can understand. I sometimes forget which is the American and which is the English version.

    I don't know how else Cook could possibly be spelled.

    You know, I had never thought of that. I just saw this map and kinda shrugged it off as a dumb internet map.

    But you've gotta be right. I lived here my entire life and didn't know how to even pronounce their names until I dated a girl from Wichita.... this was well before they were advertising everywhere and were national political bogeyman to the extent that they became.

    This is nonsensical but when referring to a color, I use gray.

    When using it in a saying, "there's a grey area" I use grey.

    I have had it. It's good for a $9 personal pizza. You can also add unlimited toppings for free. Ok ingredients.

    I like old fashioned NY pizza by the slice though.
