Jamie Lynn Spears's Pregnancy Boosts Show Ratings

Some things make absolutely no sense to me -- well, a lot of things make no sense to me, but here is one good example.

Since Jamie Lynn Spears has come out that she's pregnant, then 16-year-old's Nickelodeon show, Zoey 101 has had a major ratings boost. It seems that more than double the normal number of viewers tuned in to watch the season finale of Britney's sister's show. Obviously, this baby is best thing that ever happened to Nickelodeon execs and they are positively giddy that they decided to air the fourth the season, which begins in February.

So, why were people tuning in? You got me. Jamie Lynn wasn't going to look pregnant. Did they want to see if she could act? Why would that matter? Did any of you tune in? Can you explain the phenomenon to me?
