Friday Ratings: ABC Picks Up Traction

Despite low premiere numbers last Friday, ABC’s lineup picked up a little steam this week. This improvement, however, was not enough to take down CBS’ strong staples.

Friday Ratings: Ex List is No Moonlight

Last Friday, number crunchers had their eyes on two events: the debut of The Ex List and the departure of Friday Night Smackdown. Unfortunately for CBS and CW, the news wasn’t good. Despite CBS’ win in both the demos and viewers, Moonlight started and ended better than Ex‘s premiere. Meanwhile, CW’s comedic lineup only did 1/2 as well as the network’s old wrestling staple.

Friday Ratings: Debate Fails to Meet Expectations

Although there was high interest in Friday night’s debate, the numbers were lower than expected. The political event - still the most-watched program of the night - drew a smaller crowd than the Kerry/Bush meeting in 2004.

Friday Ratings: CBS and ABC Split Lackluster Evening

This past Friday, the networks didn’t give the viewers much to choose from. (That will, thankfully, change in just a few short weeks.) The tight race ended with an ABC win in the demos and a CBS victory with the viewers.

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

 

MONDAY (9/22)

Season premieres: The Big Bang Theory, Boston Legal, CSI: Miami, Dancing with the Stars, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, Worst Week

  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  Special two-hour premiere. “The season begins with 13 new celebrities.” Any time a reference is made about ’s butt or cut foot, take a drink.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm): “Charlie runs into an ex-girlfriend whose son bears a striking resemblance to him.” As if Charlie Sheen really needed to get involved in another custody issue.
  • Heroes (NBC, 9pm):  Special two-hour premiere. “Suresh makes an important breakthrough.” It’s taken him two seasons to realize how boring his character is.
  • Worst Week (CBS, 9:30pm):  Series premiere. “Disaster-prone Sam Briggs, and his girlfriend, Melanie, visit her parents – who don’t like Sam – to tell them that they are engaged and expecting a child.” It’s always good to get the disappointing news out all at once.

Monday Ratings: CW Starts Week on High Note

Last night, the CW had its best Monday ever thanks to a strong Gossip Girl/One Tree Hill block. Both programs showed growth yesterday despite being in their third weeks. In the end, CBS finally managed to snag the viewers from NBC while tying FOX in the demos.

Friday Ratings: Game Shows Trump ABC

Without a doubt, Charlie Gibson’s exclusive interview with Sarah Palin was the most-watched event on Friday night. Unfortunately, the ALMA Awards wasn’t. That ratings combination allowed FOX to take a win in both categories this weekend.

This Week on TV (9/15-9/21)

Robert Sean Leonard in House

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

 

MONDAY (9/15)
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm): “John’s schoolwork suffers, but his social circle widens when he makes a new friend.” Uhh, what exactly does he need to learn? He already knows that he’s in charge of saving the world.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Michael and Linc happen upon T-Bag by chance.” Seriously, by chance? That’s like saying I just stopped watching this show…by chance.
  • I Want to Work for Diddy (VH1, 9pm):  “The teams must each throw a party that meets the high standards of a Diddy event, attending to such details as theme, decor, signature cocktails and guest list.” How would they know how to throw a Diddy event if they’ve never been invited to a Diddy event?
  • Luke’s Parental Advisory (VH1, 10:30pm):  “Luke tells Lacresha and Luther Jr. that they have a 2-year-old half brother. Later, he tries to bond with the child during a weekend visit.” What would we do without television cameras to record special family moments like these?

Monday Ratings: Repeat Wins for FOX and NBC

Despite receiving its lowest demo rating thus far, the return of Terminator did well enough to help FOX win the 18-49 category. Meanwhile, NBC was once again the Monday night champ with the viewers.
