It’s official. According to mediaweek.com’s Programming Insider, Justin Timberlake is a loser. Well, at list his NBC special “Down Home In Memphis” is. The show had incredibly low ratings. NBC expected this, which is why they moved the special from before Thanksgiving to Black Friday. The Programming Insider posted that Timberlake’s special drew a “mere 2.8/ 4 in the overnights and a fifth place 1.6/ 5 in adults 18-49. Stick to MTV, Justin.” For the week, NBC came in dead last. Of all the music specials airing during sweeps, Britney Spears was the winner. Her ABC special drew a drew a 7.0/11. Christina Aguilera had a special, too. It aired on the WB network and pulled in a mere 1.7/3, which was less than what Tarzan pulled in while airing at the same time.
