Decent but not spectacular ratings for Locusts...

Locusts, the second of CBS' campy killer animal flicks, drew decent ratings for the Eye network, although whether they were high enough to inspire the productions of further fare is an open question.

Locusts came in at number 17 for the week, drawing less than half the number of viewers (12.7 against 27 millions) of the week's top-rated show, CBS' CSI. It also fared poorly against the hit Sunday program Desperate Housewives, the #3 show of the week, which garnered nearly 24 million viewers. Helping ABC handily win the evening was the 17 million plus viewers drawn by the number 10 program, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

I enjoyed the three reviews of it over at your other site. Man, that locust swarm was one pathetic movie monster. Even after they turned carnvirous, they only managed to eat one person.

Plus, even by bug standards, by-passing all those fields of grain to attack a silo seemed noodleheaded to the extreme. We may have actually found a mivie villian stupider than Terl from Battlefield Earth.
