    Monday is also the season finale for Heroes.

    Newf: I'll be here for the unveiling of the speedo picture! Wouldn't miss it for the world!

    I still haven't seen anything that would explain extra traffic on Monday.

    It just looks like another episode of the regular shows that people are already watching and posting about. So I still don't get it.

    All I can figure is Newfherder was right, it's because of the Speedo reveal!

    Disappointment sets in.

    I thought it was the speedo picture.

    Well now I have NOTHING to look forward too.

    If you look at our last record-breaking day, it was the night of the last Bachelor finale. We expect to break that record again on Monday night.

    Thanks John

    Soooo, no Newfherder Speedo then

    Still scratching my head though..... I don't get how a show's finale would create such a surge. Don't the people who watch it watch it normally each week anyway? Why the sudden upsurge for a finale? Ah well, perhaps if I watched the show I'd understand... but I don't, and have no plans to. So I'll just sit here Monday nite and hope Newf is able to get those Speedo pics posted!

    A lot of new members find us on finale nights. If the finale leaves them frustrated or they want to see how other people feel, they search the internet and usually end up here.

    Very well. This season of the Bachelor has been bringing up some of the highest ratings ever in the history of the show. It's mainly because of DwtS. The most recent episode brought in 10.38 million viewers.

    What? Oh. And here I was all this time thinking that it was because of BB--that was the exact moment that Will was evicted...*Not that I'd know this...*
    ...And the strange boy continued to weave in and out of her life, leaving her with a sense of wonder and amazment, but also, a feeling of loss, knowing that life might never be the same again.

    Take a stroll into the Bachelor forums, especially the spoiler sub-forum. If you haven't, you might be surprised at the conversations. It goes way beyond "I like so-and-so."

    Also, ABC has a prediction contest on their website and due to screencap sleuthing, FORT has a lot of people with perfect prediction records. Last season, a FORT member won the trip to Italy. But I suspect people get into the sleuthing just because they love it. Doing well in the ABC online game is a nice side benefit.

    Nooooo, nooooo, nooooo... I decided long ago to stay out of the forums of shows I have no interest in, it's easy to get hit with stray flying objects.

    But okay, now we know the answer to why FoRT might be busy tomorrow night. Darn, and here we were inviting people over to view the Newf Speedo show. Keep us advised when you reschedule, Newf!
