MONDAY 4/13)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “When Chuck’s father is abducted by Fulcrum forces, Chuck attempts to rescue him by putting his faith in a most unlikely person—his double-crossing ex-girlfriend, Jill ().” Well, she is fast and furious.
  • Dhani Tackles the Globe (Travel, 9pm):  “Dhani visits Spain’s Basque region to learn about jai alai, a fast-paced ball game that’s been called “ballet with bullets.” That’s one performance of The Nutcracker I would probably sit out.
  • Roommates (ABC Family, 9pm):  “Hope’s father makes a surprise visit and tells her to come home because he’s unhappy with her job situation.” Doesn’t he, like, understand how hard it is out there? He’s so lame.
  • 24 (FOX, 9pm):  “Jack’s daughter returns.” Because the worst day in Daddy’s life just wouldn’t be the same without her.

Wednesday Ratings: The Unusuals Does the Usual

Despite a flurry of promotion for the new series, ABC’s The Unusuals did what most shows do in that time slot: not much of anything. The premiere lost 18% of its lead-in’s audience and made it that much easier for FOX to dominate.

Wednesday Ratings: CBS Gets Last Laugh from Special

Watching people work ordinary jobs might not seem interesting, but it apparently is when celebrities do it. The April Fools’ Special, I Get That a Lot, surprised many last night by pulling in stronger than expected numbers.  Unfortunately, a win over Lie to Me wasn’t quite enough for CBS. Idol still put FOX on top for the night.

Tuesday Ratings: Osbournes Enjoy Post-Idol High

Dropped by 16 affiliates? Who cares! When you’re given a post-American Idol time slot, you’ll always do well. Despite being blocked in parts of the country, Osbournes: Reloaded still enjoyed a nice turnout last night. The variety show - combined with the reality version - helped give FOX a double win last night.

The bleeding just won’t stop for Lost. Placed against another two-hour edition of Idol (Thanks, Obama!), the ABC series hit another round of series-low numbers.

Wednesday Ratings: Lost Hits All-Time Low

As I predicted, Lost was not better off with Ted last night. Even though most shows saw decreases yesterday, the ABC series had its smallest audience to date.

Samantha Who Displaces Ugly Betty

Samantha Who

There’s nothing like a single dad to get things all messed up.

After delaying Samantha Who‘s January return for several weeks (expanded versions of The Bachelor have been doing quite well), ABC has decided to scratch their original midseason plans and start anew. Instead of putting Christina Applegate on hold, they have chosen to give America Ferrera a short vacation.
