Patrick Swayze Is the People’s Choice

Ratings for last night's People's Choice Awards were up 44 percent from last year's broadcast but couldn't compete with Barbara Walters's hour-long interview with Patrick Swayze over on ABC. More than 12.6 million Americans tuned in to see Swayze's first televised interview since being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. For those of you keeping score at home, yes, Babs made Johnny Castle cry. [Live Feed/HR]
