The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is an annual event that attracts a massive viewership. The inaugural 1995 show wasn't broadcast but when more than 2 million people logged on to watch the webcast in 1999, organizers realized they had something special on their hands.
Viewership peaked at 12.4 million in 2001 when ABC aired the event. After that Victoria's Secret signed on with CBS as it's broadcaster. In addition to the girls prancing around in their elaborate lingerie, the show also features performances by musical guests, a tradition that started with the first telecast and has continued since. Pretty much everyone from Sting to mary J. Blige to Justin Timberlake to Kanye West have performed.
The 2011 telecast is set to air on Tuesday, Nov. 29 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
