Over 31 million American households watched the Michael Jackson memorial. "Households" is the operative word as that is what Nielsen measures, TVs in the home, not office or bars/restaurants/etc. That's a huge number since other major events like Princess Diana's funeral (33 million viewers), President Reagan's funeral (35 million viewers), and President Obama's inauguration (38 million viewers) occurred when people were more likely to be at home.
Hey composers, amateur and otherwise, the makers of "Lost" have a call out for a theme song for the show. The winning tune will be played at Comic Con.
