Top 10 most watched of the week (entertainment): Bieber Roast on the list? Belieb it

Your 10 most watched programs of the week on Slingbox, non-sports edition, were as follows. Check after the list for a few quick thoughts on this week’s most watched home entertainment:

1. Today
2. The Big Bang Theory
3. Good Morning America
4. Comedy Central Roasts: Justin Bieber
5. SpongeBob SquarePants
6. Family Guy
7. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
8. NBC Nightly News
9. Friends
10. Teen Titans Go!

Comedy Central has produced 14 celebrity roasts since 2003, and the Justin Bieber one that aired March 30 was one of the most unusual ones — it was the first to focus on a pop star and the roastee was, by far, the youngest (21) to ever be so “honored.” (Or perhaps we should say, in acknowledgement of Bieber’s nationality, “honoured”?) In terms of viewership by traditional TV means, the Bieber Roast was a huge success — only the roasts of Charlie Sheen and Jeff Foxworthy drew as many viewers. And it was plenty popular on Slingbox as well, as it shot up to No. 4 on our weekly list. Apparently people really enjoyed the verbal equivalent of this:

It was mostly business as usual on the top 10 otherwise, though The Big Bang Theory did manage to break up the morning show duopoly, as its done occasionally but not frequently as of late. And NBC Nightly News made another of its sporadic but nonetheless impressive appearances, once again calling into question whether suspending Brian Williams was the best thing that program could have done for its popularity.

We’ll be back tomorrow with our sports top 10.
