What do you get when House is a repeat and DWTS is gone? Another stellar evening for CBS. Despite a two-hour Biggest Loser finale, the Eye network had its best Tuesday viewership since 1995. Meanwhile, a strong night of reality helped NBC tie CBS in the demos.

  • (19.9 million, 3.9/11 in 18-49) had its largest audience in its six-year history.
  • Approximately 11.7 million watched Michelle Aguilar win (4.5/12).

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.

Friday Ratings: CW Actually Posts a Win

Okay - so it wasn’t exactly a win. And it really wasn’t by much. But this is the first time I can recall ever saying CW was tied for the lead in the overnight demos. (It shared the honor with ABC.) CBS, meanwhile, was yesterday’s most-watched network.

This Week on TV (5/26-6/1)

Ben on Lost

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

 

MONDAY (5/26)
  • American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  “A tree climber tries to rise above a SWAT officer.” If tree boy gets a chance at the wall, his opponent will have no choice but to gas him.
  • Flavor of Love 3 (VH1, 9pm):  “The cast of Season 3 reunites.” I often wonder what a sober Brigitte Nielsen thinks about this.
  • Denise Richards: It’s Complicated (E!, 10pm):  “Denise goes on a blind date with a so-called regular guy.” When you’re getting alimony and child support from your celebrity ex, you can afford to go out with “regular guys”.
  • Living Lohan (E!, 10:30):  The title of the tonight’s premiere is “Mommy Will Fix It.” I hope she’s referring to Ali’s hair.
