Wednesday Ratings: Top Model Returns in Style

The 12th season of America’s Next Top Model premiered on a healthy note last night. (That’s good news for the show’s 13th and 14th installments.) Even though it faced direct competition from American Idol, the CW program was up 11% from its fall debut.

Wednesday Ratings: Lost Comes Back to Life

Despite a slow decline since its season debut, Lost saw a spark of life last night. Yesterday’s episode saw the return of the Oceanic 6…and the viewers. But, as we know, there isn’t anything Jack or Ben can do to topple American Idol. FOX easily won both categories this Wednesday.

Wednesday Ratings: Lost Suffers an Idol Blow

There’s nothing like an expanded Idol to give perfectly good shows a hard time. Yesterday’s two-hour Hollywood Week episode contributed to Lost‘s season-low numbers. The good news? The ABC program still had the best demos of any scripted program last night.

Wednesday Ratings: Lie to Me Remains Strong

After several weeks, the battle between Lie to Me and Lost remains tight. Last night, a Katie Couric special (yes, another one) helped the FOX series catch its ABC competitor in the demos.

Wednesday Ratings: Katie Couric No Star in Primetime

Big Love

(You can view TV Envy’s Midseason Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY 1/12)
  • 24 (FOX, 8pm):  “Jack is released from his Senate subcommittee hearing to help with the domestic threat and the investigation into former colleague Tony Almeida.” I can’t imagine what he would do to just to get out of jury duty.
  • Kyle XY (ABC Family, 9pm):  Season 3 premiere. “Lori, Declan, Josh and Andy deal with the choices they made at the prom.” Whatever happens at prom, stays at prom.
  • Man vs. Wild (Discovery, 10pm):  “An adventure in the jungles of Belize has the host reckoning with a 9-foot boa constrictor and a dangerous white-water river.” The longer the snake, the more skin to pee in.
