The numbers – Oh, the sobering numbers

sobering-numbers14.1 million people watched last week’s Private out-of-Practice.

88% of Americans get health information from TV shows.

20% of new moms will suffer a Postpartum Mood Disorder.

What does this mean?

12.4 million Americans who watched last week’s show were left with the indelible impression that what they saw was ACCURATE.

And let’s say that all of them were moms for the sake of argument. If that were the case, then 2.8 million of them experienced a Postpartum Mood Disorder.

If those numbers don’t drive home how utterly irresponsible ABC’s behavior was during last week’s Private Practice episode…

I don’t know what will.
