Last night, Criminal Minds delivered impressive numbers despite being in repeats. Unfortunately, the drama couldn’t help CBS take down FOX. The first half of the SYTYCD finale gave its network wins in the demos and the viewers.

This Week on TV (6/30-7/6)

Shear Genius 2

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

 

MONDAY (6/30)
  • American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  “Four amateur athletes who successfully lost weight are featured.” That’s exactly the way Wolf likes them: nice and skinny.
  • The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All (ABC, 9pm):  “Fifteen of DeAnna’s suitors dish with - and about - the Bachelorette who let them get away.” Thankfully, this version is not the one we would get on MTV.
  • 46664: A Concert for Nelson Mandela (VH1, 9pm): Those helping to celebrate Mandela’s life outside bars include performers who should be behind them (e.g. ).
  • Verminators (Discovery, 10pm):  “The source of a roach infestation at an apartment building shocks Mike.” There’s a reason why they say ignorance is bliss.

Technology Battles Primetime, Networks Don’t Give Up

Cast of ABC's Dirty Sexy Money

Thanks to tape recorders, DVR, video on demand, webcasts, and more, statistics have revealed that not only have the 27 series that premiered last year bombed, but nearly 9% of viewers went M.I.A. since last year.

Okay, okay, so maybe it’s not completely technology’s fault. After all, studios do allow their episodes to be streamed online, and yeah, there was that little itty-bitty writer’s strike that went on for 100 days. Either way, network executives are always battling /DVR systems, although no one knows for sure just why they stream their own episodes online. Thankfully, they haven’t given up on us. Instead, they’re getting a bit more creative.

Wednesday Ratings: Fewer Viewers Give Back to American Idol

An Idol Gives Back show without an elimination is really just a so-so event.  Although the program was last night’s most watched program, it was down 34% in the demos from a year ago.

This Week on TV (4/7-4/13)

The Office

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (4/7)
  • Today (NBC, 10am):  Kathie Lee Gifford returns to morning TV this week.  And I thought the New Kids were getting old.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30pm):  New episode.  “Samantha has to move back into the apartment when she learns that she could be evicted for subletting it to Todd.”  The girlfriend you hate gets amnesia and you get to keep her apartment.  Todd has seriously been getting off easy so far.
  • The Bachelor (ABC, 10pm):  “It’s an afternoon of tennis and tea for six of the ladies.”  I’ve seen what an afternoon of women’s tennis can look like on The Real Housewives of NYC.  This won’t end pretty.
  • Medium (NBC, 10pm):  “Rosanna Arquette stars as an older seductress linked to the brutal murders of two younger men.”  Maybe it’s best her relationship with Paul McCartney fizzled out.
