  • 'Last Comic's Ralphie May enjoying post-show success, but still whining about Dat Phan

  • 'Last Comic Standing' finale suffers ratings drop, while winner Dat Phan and others book future gigs

The finale drew 8.2 million viewers, down from the 8.5 million who had watched the final performances (which placed the show 19th in last week's Nielsens). Although the finale won its time slot in the preliminary ratings, it also drew a smaller audience than the weekly average of 8.3 million viewers. Considering that Last Comic Standing, unlike most reality shows, declined in the ratings as it went along, dropping from a 9.7 million viewer premiere, a second edition can politely be described as questionable.
