GO TO WEEKLY RATINGS PAGE

Note: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on fast national data. Comparison’s from the week prior (or episode-to-episode, etc.) on specific shows are based on final national data. Ratings for the current day are based on fast nationals. (Expect all three scenarios to be the case at all times, unless otherwise noted). The final rating for first-run episodes that aired this evening will be reported the following week. So for example, the final rating for tonights episode of “American Idol” will be reported in next weeks report for Tuesday, April 8 2008.

Also keep in mind that because these are fast national ratings, numbers may increase or decrease when the final nationals are released.

  • I watched the ABC show “Live to 150 … Can You do It?” on Tuesday night and I enjoyed it. However I was a littel disappointed that they did not talk about anyone who had already lived past 150 years. I have researched people who had lived 150 years or more, such as Li Ching Yun, who died in 1933 at the age of 256 years. As I was researching these supercentenarians, I came across a few of these people that are still alive today that have surpassed 150 years. Of these incredible people, my focus is now on a living, breathing immortal whom I fully believe is nearly 2,800 years old.

    My intentions was to find out how these amazing people survive for so many years. I fully believed that if we could model the lifestyle of these supercentenarians, we too could live a much longer and healthier life style. I have summarized what I have found on my main blog: Ben-Abba.com which I intent to publish starting with my first book: “Secrets of an Immortal – An Eyewitness Account of 2,800 Years of History”.
