    Way to go Fox News!

    I hope that means LMS rounded up to the next tenth.

    FOX News scored 4 of the 10 highest cable programs.


    • Rilm

      no – only rounds if it hits 0.46 – gotta have a 6 or higher to round up


      • Mathew

        Not true. If it’s 0.451 it will still round up


        • Amaury

          The issue is the raw data goes down to three decimal places. When you round, you round based on the raw data. Showbuzz Daily, however, doesn’t have access to that precision, only two decimal places for the demographic ratings.

          So 1.449 would be 1.45 rounded to two decimal places, but if rounded to one decimal place, it would be 1.4, *not* 1.5 since you’re using 1.449 to round, *not* 1.45.

          So, for Last Man Standing, we don’t know if that 0.45 is something like 0.446, which would only round to 0.4 or something like 0.455, which *would* round up to a 0.5.


      • Raiderguy

        If it’s 0.449 or lower, it rounds down to 0.4. If it’s 0.450 and higher, it rounds up to 0.5. Unfortunately we don’t have the one thousandths to see the true rounding unless Mitch tells us otherwise, so we’re only guessing in this case.

        Remember, when only using two decimal places, a 0.445 will round up to a 0.45, but rounds down to a 0.4 with only 1 decimal place.

        and knowing is half the battle!

      I just watched episode 11 where they sent Jordan home and thought she was genuinely screwed – “thrown under the bus”. As much as I do like the show, there are times when you feel they do this to their competitors on occasion making the show seem fraudulent. Part of the problem is not showing what they cut, or edited out, they may better justify the decision to let someone go, but still, it’s a shame.

      I also wish they would do a “where are they now” update on past winners. Christina seems to have been the most successful one judging from her recent appearances on this and Ramsey’s other shows.
