Person of Interest series debut hits a home run in the ratings.

Following the strong lead in from the double dose of the Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest was able to hold onto that audience with a seductive beginning that took us from a successful man in bed with the woman he loved, to a homeless man on a subway about to get a whipping from some clean cut scum bags.

I'm pretty sure that most people watching were rooting for the homeless man, and that's all it took to literally steal millions of channel surfers from the premiere of The office. I don't have the statistics in front of me but I wonder if this was one of the all time largest ratings theft coup in the history of television during the first week of a new season.

Apparently Person of Interest rated much higher than The Office. I was sucked into Person of Interest, as were millions of others, even though I had planned to watch The Office.  Sure seems a shame that Tuesday nights at 8pm is devoid of either a solid situation comedy or drama while Thursday nights has more than one channel worth checking out.

The Office may have been the biggest loser in the first week of the 2011 season. Switching The Office to Tuesday night at 8 pm could gain the millions back in audience share that has been lost, but it would be at the expense of ironically enough, "The Biggest Loser".

And Poppi Montgomery on Unforgettable is the hottest red head I can recall in years, and she's intelligent as well, nice combo indeed.
