What would December be without the annual strip down of Victoria's secret models for a television fashion show? It doesn't hurt viewership when you include the Spice Girls, in fact i can boost ratings. The CBS special is up this year with some decent numbers and the annual "Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show" finally saw a rise from more than just the guys in the audience and watching on television, it saw a rise in viewers.
According to Media Life Magazine the CBS program averaged 7.4 million total viewers last night at 10 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, finishing third in its timeslot but up 9 percent over last year’s 6.8 million.
Not too shabby for a show with little substance, but a lot of cleavage. The report notes that this year's bump marks the first time in the show’s six-year history that viewership has increased year to year. “Victoria’s” debuted on ABC in 2001 with 12.4 million viewers.
It was a star-studded event, with celebs like Hayden Panettiere, Ryan Seacrest, Lauren Conrad, and Jeremy Piven, and even Neil Patrick Harris in the audience. Hollyscoop writes that the hottest show on TV last night was by far the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which was pre-taped at the Kodak Theatre on Nov. 15th. They believe that the best part of the night was seeing the Spice Girls reunited on stage. The girls all looked fabulous.
