GOOD NEWS FOR UPN'S "BRITNEY AND KEVIN: CHAOTIC"
Their numbers are in, and oops, you'd like to see Britney and Kevin again and don't find them "Toxic."
Executives at the United Paramount Network (UPN) are popping the bubbly as Nielsen delivered the good news May 31 for "Britney and Kevin: Chaotic."
The reality program captured a respectable second place among women in the 12-34 age category and third among women 18-34.
More good news for UPN: contrasted against numbers from this same period a year ago, "Chaotic" improved the time-period average by double digits: 36 percent among adults 18-34, 10 percent among adults 18-49, 53 percent among women 18-34, 14 percent among women 18-49.
23-year-old Britney Spears began her career in show business at the age of 11 appearing as a regular on "The Mickey Mouse Club." She skyrocketed to fame with the hit "...Baby One More Time" in 1998.
Kevin Federline is Spears' second husband. Her first marriage, a Jan. 2004 Las Vegas ceremony to childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander, captured worldwide attention...and sparked moral outrage when Spears annulled the union two days later.
Federline was a dancer on Spears' aborted 2004 tour. He fathered two children with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson. Federline reportedly began dating Spears while Jackson was pregnant with their second child, Kaleb.
Spears and Federline married Sept. 18, 2004. The singer announced her pregnancy through her Web site last month.
