Which shows have the richest audience?

Champagne wishes and caviar TV! Want to live like the wealthiest folks in America? Then you might want to try tuning in to Desperate Housewives, Lost, and Grey’s Anatomy. That’s because, according to Marc Berman’s must-read ”Programming Insider” column in Mediaweek, those ABC series rank first, second, and third among 18-to-49-year-olds and 25-to-54-year-olds in $100,000+ homes for the first five weeks of the fall TV season.

Rounding out the top 10 among the 18-49 age bracket in $100K+ homes: CSI, ER, The Apprentice 4, My Name is Earl, Law & Order: SVU, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and Law & Order. Also of note: Ratings-challenged The Office ranked No. 19. Hmm, maybe that’s why NBC picked it up for an extra three episodes.

So, how does your personal lineup compare with the Richie Riches of the world? Holla back!

    Is that what the “hollaback” in Hollaback Girl means? Finally!! An answer to this year’s most intriguing pop-culture question!

    IIRC, NBC’s rather weak attempt to hype The Office at last May’s upfronts was to declare it “Televisions most upscale comedy.”

    Which shows have the poorest audience? I have some guesses, but I’d like to know.

    I watch Lost, Earl,Housewives and grey’s anatomy (thanks to tivo, i don’t miss the other amazing shows on at that time) but am still a broke azzed loser. What’s up with that? Does this mean I shouldn’t watch these shows because I am broke? Or does this mean that a limo will soon drive up to give me my “lifestyle appropriate for the shows you watch” check? Call me confused on this one…
