It took less than a year, but my scathing review of the horrid piece of crap called “CHIPS” has become the most-read review and most-read non-home page entry on my blog. That’s right, since the review went live on July 4, 2017, “CHIPS” has notched 730 page-views as of the 5 a.m. update on my blog today (April 24, 2018) and that puts it one ahead of the longtime most-popular review, “Noble House.”
I simply cannot explain why “CHIPS” continues to have such strength. It is the most-read page (outside of the home page) and is No. 1, even over the home page, on page-view totals for the past week, past month and past three months. Only going back for a year does the home page top “CHIPS” and then only by 772 to 730.
My review of “Noble House,” which is a TV mini-series from 1988 based on the novel by James Clavell, rose to the top after going live on Jan. 22, 2015. After quickly establishing itself, “Noble House” remained entrenched as the No. 2 page on the blog and No. 1 review. It was briefly challenged by my saying that the TV series “The Big Bang Theory” had “jumped the shark,” but it was only when I posted the “CHIPS” review that the challenge was on. And it soon became clear that “CHIPS” would ultimately win. “The Big Bang Theory” page remains No. 3 review of all time on the blog and the fourth most-popular after the home page, “CHIPS” and “Noble House.”
Just for the record, as of 5 a.m. on April 24, 2018, my blog has had 42,681 page views from more than 110 countries. My first post was on May 22, 2014, and for a time a photo of my best-ever seats at a football game was the No. 1 page with more than 400 page-views. The largest number of page views on a single day was 2,109 on Feb. 28, 2018 (I guess a computer spider indexed and copied photos I’ve posted).
So, there you have it. My denunciation of “CHIPS” is my No. 1 review. I can’t explain why it’s so popular, but here we are. Thank you for all who read it!
