CBS comes in last place for Wickedly Perfect finale, Kimberly Kennedy’s victory.

CBS comes in last place for Wickedly Perfect finale, Kimberly Kennedy’s victory.
Kimberly Kennedy might have been crowned “the next great stylemaker” on Saturday night, but no one seems to care.

The only Google News story mentioning her is an Early Show story that gives instructions for making homemade invitations. (No ribbon flowers? Alas.) Chaos Theory blogged the finale, on which Kimberly ultimately competed against Mitch, her mortal Wickedly Perfect enemy. In an earlier episode, after cutting off the tip of his finger, he hysterically noted that he had more talent than Kimberly in the missing piece of finger.

Alas, the finale didn’t do well for CBS, as the network came in last place.
