Guy Fieri Rerun Beats Out Bears Game Ratings on Sunday Afternoon
CHICAGO, IL – In an embarrassment to the NFL and professional sports in general, Sunday’s Bears verse Giants game fell in the Chicagoland television ratings market to a rerun of Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
“More people tuned in to see Guy Fieri woof down an Italian Beef dipped in butter than actually watched the Bears blow a lead against the Giants Sunday.” Stated a reporter reviewing the latest rankings.
As the Bears season continues to spiral downward, more fans have switched off the Bears games and turned to more leisurely television viewing.
“After I became violently ill while watching the Bears get smashed by the Buccaneers, I knew I had to make a change. Guy Fieri’s show was the perfect way to escape the reality of what was a Bears Sunday.” Stated, Brian Jones of Joliet, IL.
“Guy is really funny and when he eats a pancake covered with gravy, it just makes me smile and forget about my troubles.” Jones concluded.
As the Bears season spirals downwards, look for shows such as The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Dora the Explorer and The Joy of Painting reruns to trump the dwindling Bears ratings.
