ABC's 9/11 "docudrama" flops

Think Progress has the numbers.

Based on what I'm seeing from bloggers who actually tried to watch the thing, like Chet Scoville and John Howard, it sounds just absolutely awful, irrespective of its inaccuracies, which makes me think the only people who possibly could have sat through the whole thing in all its dreadful wonder and claimed enjoyment were drinking copious amounts of Kool-Aid spiked with Bush Juice.

It will be interesting to see if the American Family Association makes good on its promise to complain about the CBS documentary, since it didn't edit first responders who had the temerity to use bad language during the worst terrorist attack on American soil.
