Friday Ratings: So-So Debut for Crusoe

You gotta give NBC a hand for at least trying something different. Although it did better than last week’s episode of America’s Toughest Jobs, the network’s two-hour debut of Crusoe was third in its hour with the demos. Friday night, once again, totally belonged to CBS.

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.

This Week on TV (10/6-10/12)

The Real Housewives of Atlanta

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

 

MONDAY (10/6)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Alan tries dating two women at the same time.” I remember when Ducky was pining over just Molly Ringwald. He’s all growns up now.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Sara learns something disturbing about Michael.” She realizes that if it weren’t for his steely gaze and tattoos, Michael would just be your average white guy.
  • I Want to Work for Diddy (VH1, 9pm):  Series finale. “The final contestants train with Marcus Buckingham and are interviewed by Diddy.” If they mistakenly admit their loyalty for McCain, Diddy will retreat back under the covers.
  • Exiled (MTV, 10:30pm):  “A hip hop star’s daughter is sent to the island nation Vanuatu to live in a bug-filled jungle in the shadow of an active volcano.” Had she wasted her youth watching Survivor: Vanuatu, she would have been prepared.

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.

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.

Friday Ratings: Cancer Takes a Back Seat to 5th Graders

Despite being a star-studded, newsworthy event, the Stand Up 2 Cancer special wound up falling behind an episode of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?. Thanks to split coverage between ABC, NBC and CBS, FOX was easily Friday night’s winner in both categories.

This Week on TV (9/1-9/7)

Raising the Bar

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

 

MONDAY (9/1)

Labor Day Marathons: The Closer (TNT), Beverly Hills, 90210 (SOAPnet), Scrubs (TV Land), Dirty Jobs (Discovery), My Wife and Kids (ABC Family), Star Trek: The Next Generation (Sci Fi), House of Payne (TBS), CSI (Spike TV), Anthony Bourdain (Travel), That ‘70s Show (FX)

  • Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm):  Season 2 premiere. “Summer in the Hamptons winds down as Serena and Nate carry on a cover-up scheme to make others think they’re dating.” A few choice pics sent to Gossip Girl should do the trick.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  Season 4 premiere. “Michael is in LA looking to even the score with Gretchen for Sara’s death.” I think Gretchen should really apologize for all of last season.
  • One Tree Hill (CW, 9pm):  Season 6 premiere. “Lucas’ chosen lady meets him at the airport, while Dan’s accident proves life-threatening.” Sorry. So not caring who picks these days.
  • Raising the Bar (TNT, 10pm):  Series premiere. “Idealistic public defender Jerry Kellerman (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) fights for a man he’s sure is innocent, but holding a court is a judge who loathes Kellerman.” Gosselaar’s new hair has been generating some passionate opinions.
