| Eat A Cricket, Gavin Harvey
| Thursday, September 29, 2005
|Who would win in a fistfight: GSN or OLN? Personally, I'd give it to OLN since, you know, they're the Outdoor Life network, and they're always outside and built and stuff, but I digress. This isn't quite a fistfight, but it's just as funny.
GSN's CEO Rich Cronin bet OLN's President Gavin Harvey that if Amazing Race lost to Survivor in the ratings, then Cronin would "race" to and from work for a week, a walk equaling 8 miles a day. If Survivor lost to TAR in the ratings, then Harvey would have to eat a live cricket.
Guess who won?
"The results are in and GSN’s THE AMAZING RACE averaged 355,000 total viewers each night in prime time, peaking with 495,000 on July 14. This measurement was based on the one-month period from July 11 to August 10 (M-Su 9 PM). OLN’s SURVIVOR averaged 200,000 total viewers each night in prime time, peaking with 362,000 viewers on August 3, putting GSN ahead of OLN in total viewers. OLN’s measurement was based on the time period of July 24 through August 23 (Sun 7p; M-Th 10p)."
"True to his word, Harvey will honor the bet and eat a cricket with Cronin as a witness the next time the two are together in either New York or Los Angeles. Surprisingly, both cities have a few good restaurants that serve this fine 'delicacy.'"
And to think there's no fun in TV anymore.
