    Being a Brit I need to know why every Thursday night there is a dip in my earnings from the US. So what is the population doing? (Simpsons Buffy SG1??)

    Friends, Scrubs, Will & Grace, ER. Maybe CSI at 9p.

    Probably just CSI (maybe a little Friends) that is causing this earnings glitch. Simpsons are only all reruns on weekdays, and the Buffy and SG1 fans really aren't numerous enough to make a difference (and I think new SG1 episodes are on Friday). But CSI is a really good show, I don't mind if I have to give up a few dollars in earnings while I watch that every week. Really weird episode on tonight though. Apparently women can convince their bodies that they are pregnant, even when they aren't, and the body will start producing hormones that it normally would if a woman really was pregnant. I guess I learned something new today.

    When I was in undergrad (way back in the late 80s), Thursday nights were the start of the weekend, with a good many parties to celebrate.

    If a lot of your audience is college-age, that could be part of it.

    Thursday is payday for many or most, so Thursday night is usually grocery shopping night as well.

    Also a lot of the younger single folks go out to have a few, sort of a warm-up for the weekend.

    Bizarrely in the UK it's Friends, ER, Scrubs and Buffy on a Thursday.

    I heard a rumour that we do actually make TV programs in the UK too. But I think they're all house makeovers and police dramas

    In this area of the country, most people's paydays are Friday--but the younger people do start celebrating early anyway...

    I've never noticed a particular dip on Thursday nights. I have noticed fairly consistent dips mid month and the last couple of days of the month. I've always attributed it to those folks who get paid on the 1st and the 15th.

    What's CSI? I don't watch TV, except for Turner Classic Movies on Silent Sunday nights and MSNBC when I'm doing weight training at home.

    Actually, it's surprising I've heard of any of the other shows at all, except for Friends. Probaby saw the names on a website somewhere.

    Other possibility:
    Thursday is usually the busiest day of work since most people don't want to have lots of tasks on Friday. So, they usually work until late and when they go home, they just want to relax.
