      Really? There were promos for it seemingly in every ad break for over a week prior. I’d say anyone interested would have caught these on YouTube already…

      • Does that same logic apply to cat/dog/toddler videos?
        I’d say 249 is probably an expected 945 number, wouldn’t you? More than SVU does. Hell, it’s more than Love Island.. even in demo!
