The ratings for the program have declined every year since its inception. ABC's 2001 telecast drew 12.3 million viewers, while 10.5 million and 9.4 million watched on 2002 and 2003 on CBS. Following that 2004 hiatus, CBS brought the show back in the winter of 2005 and drew only 8.9 million viewers. The most recent incarnation, airing last December, drew just under 7.5 million viewers.
