NYC’s Weekly Top Ten in TV: Jets Losing on the Field, Winning in the Ratings!

J-E-T-S. Jets! Jets!

*choking sound*

Last time we checked in with the Jets, they were winning games yet struggling to crack into the Top Ten in the TV ratings.

Now, all that has changed.

This week, in a dramatic reversal, the Jets made our list, not once, but twice! And in true Jets-like fashion, they did so with a familiar style, dropping both games in teeth-gnashing, last second, are-you-kidding-me heart breakers.

While losing twice in one week on national television to division rivals is no picnic, beating NCIS and The Mentalist in the ratings should give Mark Sanchez a big boost of confidence heading into week 7.
