NYC’s Weekly Top Ten in TV: President Obama Succumbs to David Hasselhoff

88780400 NYCs Weekly Top Ten in TV: President Obama Succumbs to David HasselhoffLast week, President Barack Obama delivered a snoozer of a primetime press conference on the subject of health care reform. But you wouldn’t know it by looking at NYC’s weekly top 10 ranker, where the prez was a no show and NBC’s America’s Got Talent took the top spot. Which proves, once again, (as if there was any doubt) that when it comes to TV entertainment, the leader of the free world is no match for the sight of Elvis impersonators, showgirls, drag queens and Bollywood dance troupes, all competing for the approval of David Hasselhoff.
