It wasn’t a great debut for this new show. The ratings were mediocre at best and will likely drop lower in week two.

    I never got to see Sex in the City when it was on because I didn’t have HBO, and I never thought to rent the series from Blockbuster, Netflix etc to catch up. I love The Carrie Diaries because of the inside look we get of Carrie’s life before she became a famous writer . Like Carrie, I love to write and would love to be a Magazine Journalist someday.
