The two-part finale of “The Simple Life 2,” chronicling Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie’s cross-country RV trek towing an Airstream travel trailer, fared well in the primetime ratings race.
“Simple Life,” bowed out with back-to-back episodes last Wednesday, airing from 9 to 10 p.m, EDT. The final episode at 9:30 p.m. delivered the highest adult – ages 18 to 49 – demographic rating of any primetime series in the week ending Aug. 8, according to Nielsen Media Research.
The 9 p.m. “Simple Life” episode was a close second, tying CBS’ Thursday “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” for the week’s top shows in adults ages 18 to 49.
