The much anticipated mid-year ratings came out to a big thud. I didn't see anything very controversial, maybe a few that were odd and a few more than mild surprises, but nothing seemed conspiratorial.
With that behind us, let's move on to 100 degree temperatures and QT. The real question isn't who will win, it's does anyone in QT have a chance to make an impact at cities. They don't have to win cities, maybe just pull an upset. We're really talking about a momentary breather until the real trash talking starts after cities. Yes, there will be some before but it's easier to be mad after you've lost than before.
