Juno was the highest grossing film in America Monday night, taking in $1.38 million, about $75,000 more than #2 National Treasure. Not bad considering it was its first day at #1 and its 34th day in release.
But more impressive (and more horrific), Monday night brought some other notable numbers, says The Futon Critic:
Last night from 8-9 p.m. ET, the regular time period debut of “American Gladiators” (4.8 rating, 12 share in adults 18-49, 10.9 million viewers overall) nailed NBC’s highest 18-49 rating in this time period in 10 months (since March 5, 2007). In total viewers, “Gladiators” attracted NBC’s biggest audience in the slot with regularly scheduled programming since June 18, 2007.
So its come to this?
