Monday Ratings: NBC Actually Improves

Yes, yes - you heard me right: NBC showed signs of life yesterday. But let’s not get too excited now. It’s not like the network won anything. (The Peacock was still in fourth place.) It just didn’t suck as badly as it has been. 8pm Dancing with the Stars (19.1 million, 4.4/12 in 1849) stumbled by 500,000. House (11.8 million, 4.5/12) was down 1.2 million. The Big Bang Theory (10.1 million, 3.8/11) added on 1.2 million; …

Monday Ratings: Suburbia Survives the Evening

Yesterday’s premiere of Surviving Suburbia did well despite NCAA competition. The program had the best numbers for a comedy debut since the opener of Samantha Who? in October 2007. (A Dancing with the Stars lead-in being the common denominator.) 8pm Dancing with the Stars (19.6 million, 4.5/11 in 18-49) was down by 600,000. Approximately 13 million watched the shocker on House (5.0/13). The Big Bang Theory* (8.9 million, 3.2/9) gave up 900,000; How I Met Your …

Monday Ratings: FOX and ABC Divide the Night

Despite all the 10’s issued on Dancing with the Stars last night, ABC narrowly lost the demos to FOX yesterday. Hot ballroom action did stir up the evening’s biggest audience though. 8pm Dancing with the Stars (20.2 million, 4.8/12 in 18-49) was even with last week. House (4.7/13) turned in 12.2 million. The Big Bang Theory (3.8/11) roped in 9.8 million; How I Met Your Mother (9.2 million, 3.9/10) improved by 1.8 million. Chuck (5.6 million, …

Tuesday Ratings: Reaper Reaps the Benefits

Yesterday’s Obama presser may have been a nuisance for some networks, but it worked out well for one. Those not interested in another news conference brought Reaper to season-high numbers. Meanwhile, the back half of the evening was owned by CBS. 8pm Approximately 9.9 million (2.0/6) in 18-49) watched President Barack Obama on CBS. ABC saw 8.7 million (2.0/6) tune in for their coverage. NBC (2.2/6) chalked up 8.3 million for their broadcast. FOX (1.6/5) pulled …

Monday Ratings: New Lows for Heroes, Medium

If you thought a repeat of Two and a Half Men might help Heroes’ chances, you were wrong. Last night, the wilting NBC program once again saw its smallest audience to date. That poor performance led into a series low for Medium as well. 8pm Dancing with the Stars (20.2 million, 4.9/13 in 18-49) stumbled by 900,000. House* (7.7 million, 2.6/7) sent 5.1 million home. A How I Met Your Mother original (7.4 million, 2.9/8) didn’t …

Monday Ratings: Castle Has Strong Second Outing

While it’s doubtful Castle would be able to do this well without DWTS’ support, the series did show promise in its second week. The Nathan Fillion vehicle joined forces with the ballroom hit to give ABC another double win last night. 8pm Dancing with the Stars (21.1 million, 5.3/14 in 18-49) slipped by 1.4 million. House (12.8 million, 4.8/13) checked in 700,000 more. The Big Bang Theory (9.8 million, 3.7/11) was up 300,000; How I Met …

Monday Ratings: DWTS Has Best Premiere Yet

Jewel and Nancy O’Dell’s loss was Dancing with the Stars’ gain. Despite being in its 8th season, the program saw its largest premiere audience to date. (I think we can safely attribute that to the Melissa Rycroft factor.) The reality show’s return easily gave ABC wins in both the viewers and the demos last night. 8pm Dancing with the Stars (22.5 million, 5.9/15 in 18-49) had its second best premiere demo so far. House (12.1 million, …

Monday Ratings: Heroes Can’t Rescue NBC

CBS’ repeat-filled lineup gave NBC a chance to pick up some ground yesterday. Unfortunately, the Peacock squandered its opportunity and sunk even further last night. FOX, in the meantime, seized the evening and placed first in both the viewers and the demos. 8pm House (14.6 million, 5.4/14 in 18-49) picked up 600,000. The Bachelor special (11 million, 3.7/9) was off 1.5 million from the last regular episode. The Big Bang Theory* (8.4 million, 2.7/7)* lost 400,000; …

Monday Ratings: A New Low for Chuck

Chuck‘s post-Super Bowl boost disappeared in just a matter of weeks. Back on February 2nd, the show had its largest audience of the season. Yesterday, the program hit a series low. The Bachelor, in the meantime, hit another season high last night. 8pm House (14 million, 5.1/13 in 18-49) had the night’s best numbers. The Bachelor (12.5 million, 4.4/10) picked up 900,000.
