The owner of a local ad agency is so disgusted by comments from Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries that this morning he's hanging posters from his high-visibility office window with, well, a special message for the clothing retailer.
Since The Office finale aired for 75 minutes, these early numbers are approximate (Nielsen’s first-round numbers only measure in half-hour blocks). But even with the final 15 minutes omitted, The Office clearly surged: At least 5.4 million viewers tuned in and the show delivered a minimum of a 2.9 rating among adults 18-49. That’s easily a season high for the show; its best performance in 16 months (the season premiere was a 2.1 rating, to give you some idea of the context of this number).
Idol had 14.3 million viewers and a 3.6 rating, according to Nielsen’s final overnight numbers. That’s off a steep 44 percent from last year. This is by far the lowest rated Idol finale ever — the previous finale low was last year’s 6.4. Compare both those numbers to the Idol finale two years ago, which scored a 9.2 rating.
Here's an interview with 'Office' actor Rainn Wilson about the finale:

An Australian politician has been forced to publicly apologise after clicking ‘like’ on a Facebook photo of a teenager exposing his genitals.
Peter Collier, Western Australia’s Minister for Education had clicked the ‘like’ button on what he thought was an innocent picture of a 16-year-old boy in 2011. The picture was actually part of a prank known as ‘sneaky nuts’, in which people subtly expose their genitals when posing for photographs.
Collier apologised on Thursday, stating that he was completely unaware that the teenager, who was otherwise fully clothed and stood next to another man, had exposed himself.
He said that the incident “highlighted the pitfalls of social media”.
In a statement he said: “It was a silly mistake on my part. I only became aware of the actual content of the photo when shown by a journalist.
“I apologise if I caused any offence.”
A little while back, country legend Randy Travis was arrested for Public Intoxication...naked. Here is the raw video of the incident:
And here is the audio to the 911 call:
TAMPA, Fla. -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott - who has made his handling of the state's economy the main thrust of his re-election campaign - got more to boast about on Friday.
The state's unemployment rate dropped to 7.2 percent in April - putting Florida below the national average for the second straight month. National statistics showed that Florida had the third largest jump in jobs in the nation behind Texas and New York.
Scott touted the numbers at a stop at a Tampa manufacturing firm and used it to argue that his push for tax cuts and other moves have helped the state recover from the Great Recession.
"This is proof that our plan of lower taxes and less regulation and having a pro-business attitude...is working in our great state," Scott said.
The new unemployment rate - which is a drop of 0.3 percent from the previous month - is the lowest it has been since September 2008. There are now an estimated 680,000 Floridians out of work.
