As we gear up for tomorrow’s new episode of Penn & Teller Tell A Lie, let’s take a look back at how the show’s debut did in the ratings.

According to TV By The Numbers, Tell A Lie pulled a .5 share in the 18-49 age demographic coveted by advertisers and therefore highly valued by the networks. They accounted for roughly 1,259,000 viewers in “the demo”.

Compare that to their lead-in Mythbusters which pulled a .7 and 1,844,000 viewers.

In the meantime, get jacked for tomorrow’s episode at 10 p.m. ET with this segment from the show…

    If the laser sound system really works, I would think the Government would have thousands of them. It probably does work.

    Just a modern day tin can telephone is it not?

  • Hal

    This was kind of a cop out..Leaving the fire till last, then just showing it didn’t work.

  • DVCPRO

    Not sure what you mean H…what do you mean it didn’t work? That would work if lasers can transport vibration.

    Hi DVC: I wasn’t talking about the laser. I meant the second show where the Jet engine didn’t put out the fire. The first six were real, then they just showed at the end that it didn’t work. There was really no guessing which was the lie, they just showed at the end that it was made up.
