Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011: Highest Ratings In Ten Years

“The ratings are in! The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show leads among sleazy dudes with no internet connection.” That’s a quote from Rick Muscles’s Twitter feed last night, but it’s actually true: more people watched the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show than any other program last night.

Victoria’s Secret was seen by 10.3 million viewers and scored a whopping 4.6 rating among adults 18-49 at 10 p.m. That’s the special’s largest audience since 2002 and its biggest demo rating during its nine-year history — leaping 35 percent from last year. [EW]

Am I the only person who doesn’t think this is as sexy as it should be? Don’t get me wrong, the models are gorgeous; I’d happily push my fiancée out of a 12th-story window for a three-way with Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. But if I’m going to go through the hassle of murder charges for an epic night of chocolate sauce and orgasms, I’d rather the girls not be wearing giant moth wings, you know? The excess detracts from the beauty. Just put the models in simple, classy lingerie like crotchless panties.
