It is with great sadness that I write this blog. The end of an era is upon us, Downton Abbey will end after season 6. Sad faces all around ;-(
To give you an idea of the effect this show has had on mid-Michigan, Downton Abbey season 5, received an 8.78 rating in the Lansing DMA with 22,000 households watching and over 41,000 people watching through our entire viewing area. Quite unheard of for a PBS show. To give you a bit of perspective, NBC's The Voice received a 7.2 rating and 60 Minutes received an 8.7 rating.
