Clobbered by a cartoon?



Madonna_2 Could it be that Madonna has finally "jumped the shark?"

The rating numbers are in for her highly touted TV concert last week. (Drumroll please.) The headline: A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving beat Madonna by 5 million viewers.

Five million! According to the Washington Post, the 1973 cartoon beat the Material Girl in every age category. Other shows last Wednesday night that also beat her: William Shatner's "Show Me The Money" and Univision's Spanish language soap.

If you missed her televised concert, you get another chance this Thursday. Bravo TV is airing it again at 8 p.m. Eastern time. Finally the right place for Madonna: Wedged between episodes of Top Chef, The Real Housewives of Orange County and reruns of The West Wing.

5 things Americans would rather watch on TV than a Madonna concert:
Onedayattime 5. Reruns of "One Day At A Time"
4. "America's Got Talent"
3. "2006 Scripps National Spelling Bee"
2. "Teen Choice Awards"
1. Dead air.
