What Do We Call Today? Well It’s a #1 Wednesday of Course!
Who owns the #1 song in America? How 'bout the #1 country album? This week's answers plus a few other number ones in the news...
#1 Country Song: Keith Urban- Somewhere In My Car
It's the second week in a row for the Aussie's steamy song to be at the top spot in America. He's scheduled to be at the Taste of Country Music Festival in upstate New York in June, and hopefully books an appearance or two in the upper Midwest in 2015. You can vote for this tune among others to be the #1 song of the Top 98 of 2014 HERE and everyday until Christmas Eve!
#1 Country Album: Garth Brooks- Man Against Machine
After selling over 200,000 tickets to his 11 Minneapolis shows a few weeks ago, our favorite "Friend in Low Places" is just getting started on his World Tour across America. Yet another artist refusing to use Spotify, Garth and his 14-track album is on top of the heap of country compilations for the second straight week. I wouldn't be surprised if he keeps it up through the new year!
#1 Movie in America: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
The much anticipated young adult sequel since last year's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had another incredible box office showing- with over $22.5 million earned over it's 10 day run so far. Jennifer Lawrence, Donald Sutherland, and Woody Harrelson's tense drama grossed more than double the revenue of #2 Penguins of Madagascar. Rated a 7.2 out of a possible 10 by IMDb and getting a 66% fresh rating by Rotten Tomatoes, it seems like most viewers flocked to theatres in anticipation, but the second verse wasn't quite the same as the 1st.
#1 Book: Captivated by You by Sylvia Day
Released almost two weeks ago by Berkley Publishing, this is the 4th of 5 novels in the Crossfire Series by Japanese-American romance novelist Sylvia Day. #1 on New York Times Best-Seller List for print & e-book fiction combined in it's first week on the list, it follows famous fictional heartthrob Gideon Cross. Day has written over 20 awards winning novels in 40 countries, including the hit Crossfire Series that Lionsgate Entertainment has recently secured future TV rights.
#1 TV Show: Thanksgiving Night Football on NBC Accoring to zap2it.com and yet again for another week, the National Football League proved itself king of the airwaves with a shade under 23 million television viewers this past week, but this time it was on the Thursday Holiday! Coming in 2nd place was Sunday Night Football also on NBC. CBS's 60 Minutes & NCIS and ABC's Dancing With the Stars rounded out the top 5.
