LOS ANGELES, California (PoopyCaca.com) – Television actioner “The Los Angeles Police Department” continues to outperform the majority of television shows during the crucial “May sweeps,” with the exception of American Idol.
Although never critically acclaimed, ”The LAPD” has found the perfect combination of action, suspense, slapstick comedy and violence to draw large audiences, making it the second top rated show on the air, posting a 14.6 rating locally, right behind American Idol, which posted a 15.7.
May is an important month in the television industry, as advertising pricing rates are set based on ratings, resulting in season and series finales, stunt shows and special guest stars.
The last two episodes of “The Los Angeles Police Department,” which featured long car chases that ended in massive shoot outs with over 120 rounds, is just the ticket for this previously fledgling show to regain the audience share it held in the nineties.
American Idol denied that it’s special episode airing next week, featuring a duet performed by the final two contestants, one in a helicopter the other in a car on the freeway, was in reaction to the ratings battle success of “The LAPD.”
