So do I understand this right, people here are pretty much saying that if the Olympics had been the lead-in to an infomercial, then the ratings for the infomercial would have been exactly the same as these Days ratings?
I think it's a combination of the Olympics and a fact that Days actually improved last week. Those two things combined allowed for the bump, IMO.

An infomercial wouldn't have gotten the same ratings because Days already has a built-in audience, no matter how small it may be. Infomercials don't, LoL.
Oh ok, thanks, so we're agreeing, lol. I was thrown off by the 'people just left their TVs on' posts. There is a concept of shows failing despite a strong lead-in, and I think if an infomercial would have been on afterwards, many of the Olympic viewers would have turned their TVs right off. (Substitute 'Tinda Lao' for 'infomercial' if you'd like, and you'll see my point.) The fact that there was an increase was a given, but I do not think the increase would have been as much had the show not been as strong as it was last week.
