  1. I had tears in my eyes nearly as often as Rita did! I loved this episode and am very disappointed that it did not rate as high as the others. Maybe the NCAA Final Four had something to do with it. Whatever it was, folks who missed it, missed a great episode.

  2. Yes, I think it must have been the NCAA, partly. It was a terrific and moving show. This episode was so rich with history, back to the era of WWII. Maybe the 18-49 demographic was turned off by not recognizing the historical references. These days, people don’t know much about history . . .

  3. The NCAA Final Four wasn’t on Friday – that is what makes the ratings even more disappointing – the Final Four was on Saturday. I am wondering if the 18-49 group was out at the movies seeing Hunger Games etc.?

  4. I was extremely disappointed not to be able to see this episode in it’s original time slot. My local NBC channel decided to run a special about the U of K and U of L teams playing each other, ugh!

    So even though the game wasn’t until Saturday they still messed up our viewing of WDYTYA. 🙁 Wonder how many other NBC affiliates did this for their local teams?

    I did get to see it online but that doesn’t count toward the ratings.

    I feel like the other posters that this was the best episode to date!

  5. @Deborah they did the same thing on the Detroit station for the Helen Hunt episode. It was a special about professional sports teams, as opposed to college, but the results are the same. I wonder how much they factor in Hulu ratings
