Thursday Ratings: Survivor Scare Draws Viewers

It might not have been the way Russell Swan wanted to leave, but he definitely got our attention. Last night’s scary episode of Survivor picked up its best numbers of the season. Unfortunately, CBS’ other repeats gave ABC wins in both the viewers and the demos yesterday.

Thursday Ratings: 30 Rock Not Solid for NBC

30 Rock has no problems attracting guest stars and earning Emmys—so why does it continue to struggle in the ratings? Last night’s Season 4 premiere found itself down 27% in the demo from this same time last year. It also lost over 20% of The Office‘s viewers.

Thursday Ratings: Criminal Evening for CBS

One week after facing a new Private Practice, Southland was put to another test. A repeat of Criminal Minds not only did better than the now-moved Harper’s Island, it attracted the most viewers in the 10:00 hour.

Thursday Ratings: Parks Weakens Without Office

Although it’s still hard to say how Southland will do against an ABC original, the series held up remarkably well in its second week. Unfortunately, the same can’t entirely be said for Harper’s or Parks. The CBS mystery lost nearly 2 million in its second week while the comedy suffered a case of the post-Earl blues.
