Friday Ratings: NBC Makes a Week End Mark

Up until now, CBS has traditionally dominated Friday nights with its Ghost Whisperer/Numb3rs combo. But could Jay Leno potentially change that? Although we’re still a week away from finding out, the program got off to a nice start this weekend. Primetime’s new 10:00 show helped give NBC a win in both the viewers and the demos.

Lindsay Lohan and Cheryl Hines in Labor Pains

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

 

MONDAY (7/13)
  • Great American Road Trip (NBC, 8pm):  New day. “The six remaining families hit the road, leaving the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and skirting through Missouri, where they land in Branson to perform skits before crooner Andy Williams and comic Yakov Smirnoff.” Apparently, the families also journey back several decades.
  • Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Amy needs assistance with her chaotic schedule, so her dad and sister lend her a hand.” When the supportive applause died down, she put the baby back to sleep.
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 8pm):  “Jillian arrives on Maui with the three remaining bachelors, all of whom she says she loves.” Yes - and said he loved Melissa. We know how this goes.
  • Make It or Break It (ABC Family, 9pm):  “Sasha puts the girls through a grueling day of practice as punishment for attending a party.” That’s what non-athletes call ‘working off the alcohol.’”

  • Jon & Kate Plus Eight (TLC, 9pm):  “Previously unseen footage of the Gosselin’s early years is featured.” Misty water-colored memories of the way they were….
  • Cake Boss (TLC, 10pm):  “Buddy creates an ornate wedding cake filled wtih live birds.” Watch out - that might not be fondant you’re eating.
  • Dance Your Ass Off (Oxygen, 10pm):  “Twelve plus-size contestants infiltrate Los Angeles in a competition to shed pounds by means of dance and diet in this 10-part unscripted series hosted by .” In other words, a cutthroat version of Sweatin’ to the Oldies.

Friday Ratings: Friday Night Lights Scores Higher Than Lipstick Jungle

There was a little bit of good news and bad news for NBC this weekend. Although the network saw smaller numbers for Howie Do It‘s second outing, the return of Friday Night Lights did better than the previous time slot holder (Lipstick Jungle). Unfortunately CBS’ dominant lineup made any improvements seem laughable.

Muppets Christmas

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

MONDAY 12/15)
  • Heroes (NBC, 9:00):  “Mohinder may hold the key to rescuing Hiro.” I’m starting to wonder if Mohinder has the answer to anything.
  • 20/20 (ABC, 9:00):  “Teens put on a show in a chronicle of a Virginia high school production of ‘The Wiz’ that uses video diaries and interviews to follow the emotional drama of students.” Sadly, this is the same network that also put together the barely-watched .
  • Worst Week (CBS, 9:30):  “Sam helps Dick choose the perfect gift for Angela after discovering he gets her the same thing every year.” Just for the record: Some things like spa packages and jewelry can be given over and over again.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10:00):  “Heidi and Spencer consider eloping during a Mexican vacation.” Whatever you do - avert your eyes.
