Joe Schmo finale beats UPN, WB.
With 3.4 million viewers, the first hour of The Joe Schmo Show finale “was the highest-rated episode of an original series on the network since September 2000,” Zap2it.com reports. The show also beat The WB and UPN among 18- to 49-year-olds. About a million fewer viewers kept watching for the hour-long interview with Matt, but even that was “230 percent better than the same time period a year ago.”
