  1. I think the dead body floating in the water was a hook for viewers and they were baited by the line and sinker.
    They haven’t had a who dunnit for a while.

  2. “Sammy J (250,000), How to Stay Married (246,000),”
    Production costs of Sammy J would be about 1% of those of How to Stay Married.
    And I’m guessing a lot more tax payer money went into the latter.

    1. A straight comparison is not that simple if you are talking investment. You’d need to look at all the playouts, all the catch-up, all the timeshifting, all the ad sales all the international sales. This is just an overnights snapshot.
