Ratings Plummet For Walters's Most Fascinating

Maybe it was just a case of the 2011 most fascinating celebrities being less fascinating than those of 2011, but Barbara Walters's annual The Ten Most Fascinating People of the year saw a 23-percent ratings plunge Wednesday night. While last year's list included Tiger Woods, Sandra Bullock, LeBron James, the cast of Jersey Shore, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Middleton, Sarah Palin, David Petraeus, Betty White and Mark Zuckerberg, this year's most-fascinating celebrity on the list was the late Steve Jobs. All of the rest were distant runners-up, including Simon Cowell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson & Eric Stonestreet (of Modern Family ), Derek Jeter, Donald Trump, Katy Perry, Pippa Middleton (Kate's sister), Amanda Knox (who was accused of murder), Herman Cain, and The Kardashian sisters. The 90-minute telecast on ABC fared no better than second place in each half hour, and the network itself wound up in third place for the night. CBS, with an average of 11.9 million viewers, won the night, followed by Fox with 9.3 million, ABC with 7.2 million and NBC with 3.8 million.
