3. The most watched episode of a TV series so far in the 2010s is . . . the premiere episode of “Undercover Boss” on CBS from February of 2010. It had 42.3 million viewers. (Super Bowls don’t count, because they aren’t episodes of a TV series.)
4. When Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic first started playing music together, it wasn’t as Nirvana . . . they joined up to start a Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band.
