This is a new feature on the site called Ratings Recap, each week I will post a condensed and simplified look at the ratings so even I may finally understand them. Here is the ratings recap for last night's episode  (1.04 The Luminous Fish Effect).

The ratings from last night's episode (1.04 The Luminous Fish Effect) are out and the show continued to lose some viewers. It was watched by 8.15 million viewers (down from 8.36 last week) which placed it 4th place (behind ABC's Dancing with the Stars, NBC's Chuck & Baseball on Fox). With viewers aged 18-49 the show ranked 3rd behind Dancing with the Stars & Chuck. The show did continue to build on its lead-in How I Met Your Mother but only slightly.
