Ark. town liked first Simple Life ep, which was watched by 13 million people.
The mayor of Altus, Ark., the town invaded by Paris and Nicole for The Simple Life, says the first episode “was hilarious.” Mayor Veronica Post’s constituents “loved it,” she says. “Everybody had good positive comments. Of course this was the first episode, we’ll wait and see what happens.” That’s a good idea, since during last night’s episode, they saw Paris and Nicole gleefully topping off their bottles of milk with water. In addition to Altus’ 817 residents, about 13 million people—12 percent of the viewing audience, CNN reports—watched the first episode. Although it had more viewers 18 to 49 than any other show that evening, Paris and Nicole were still beaten in overall viewers by the second half-hour of JAG. How embarrassing.
