Everybody Loves Fantasia, except for ____ and ____

The Cable Ratings Report is IN!

Fantasia is an even bigger hit than Shatner and that Gaysian from Star Trek!

"The Fantasia Barrino Story: Life is Not a Fairy Tale" drew a hefty 6.6 million viewers in its premiere on Saturday, making it the No. 2 original movie in the cable network's 22-year history. Only the 1995 flick "Almost Golden," which starred Sela Ward as journalist Jessica Savitch.

The premiere also drew the best ratings of any original movie on cable this year among the female viewers Lifetime targets. A replay of the movie on Sunday brought in an additional 5 million sets of eyeballs.

As for Shatner, the "Comedy Central Roast" of the legendarily hammy "Star Trek" and "Boston Legal" star drew an audience of 3.6 million on Sunday night, 2.1 million of whom fell into the adults 18-49 demographic advertisers love.

So everybody loves Fantasia...except for me and Ray Richmond.

I tried to watch "The Fantasia Barrino Story" starring Fantasia Barrino as Fantasia Barrino. Really. I did! But I didn't even make it to the first commecial break. Once Dwayne Wayne started yelling at his kids about how their family band was more important than schoolwork...I was D-O-N-E.
