As you'll soon see, this edition of "What people are talking about this week" is more like "What people are talking about today," because there are a lot of great things being discussed today. Let's get to it.

Complementing the discussion of who was picked is stats on how the NFL draft show fared. It did well, getting a Nielsen rating of 4.8, and doing better than last year.

Not a great thing for those shows when networks are currently choosing which ones will be renewed and which will not be renewed.
