Ellen's Dog Days Pay
A method to the madness?
I ripped Ellen DeGeneres for going public with her dog dilema--or at least strongly suggested that she not use her public pulpit for something that should've been done privately--but this morning's New York Post says she's reaping some Nielsen bennies:
"LOOKS like Ellen DeGeneres' doggy dealings have been a positive thing for the talk queen after all. Ratings for "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" were up almost 10 percent in the overnight Nielsens for the two days following her emotional breakdown over her adopted mutt, Iggy, who was passed on to another family after Ellen no longer wanted it. Those are just the preliminary numbers - the actual number of viewers may be much, much higher."
