Am sure this thought has occurred to the Discovery Channel: "What if Skywire Live with Nik Wallenda" was a regular weekly program? Imagine the possibilities! Nik goes from the Empire State Building to the Chrysler Building...Nik goes from the George Washington Bridge to the Tappan Zee! For the season finale - assuming Nik is still alive - Nik goes from the Space Lab to the moon. Forget that. We'll save that for next season..."
Yes, almost eleven million people watched his high wire act on Sunday. It was a hit.
On a seperate note, "Princesses: Ling Island" was seen by about 900,000 viewers, a slight improvement over last week. (Maybe they should try a highwire act?)
