Sunday Ratings: Music Awards Has CBS Singing

Either country music is in its prime, or viewers weren’t interested in a Housewives repeat. Whatever the reason, the ACMAs were hot last night. Yesterday’s broadcast had its best demos since 2005 and its largest audience in 11 years.

Sunday Ratings: Weekend Ends with a CBS Win

Couple a basketball tournament overrun with a President Obama interview and what do you get? A nice way to start the evening for CBS. Despite hot competition from Desperate Housewives, the Eye network won both the viewers and the demos last night.

Sunday Ratings: Kings is No Ratings Ruler

One of these evenings NBC will get it right. Just days after witnessing a painful debut by The Chopping Block, the network did it again. Yesterday’s premiere of Kings failed to deliver any power to the Sunday night lineup. CBS wound up winning the viewers while ABC topped the demos.

  • House (FOX, 8pm):  “A nursing home worker is alarmed when the home’s cat curls up next to her. It seems the cat only cuddles up to people who are going to die soon.” That’s what felines call “grooming their victims.”

Sunday Ratings: Celebrity Apprentice Pales Against Housewives

Looks like the economy isn’t the only thing Donald Trump should be worrying about. Despite a solid debut, The Celebrity Apprentice was served a cold dose of reality this week. When pitted against Sunday night regulars (Desperate Housewives, Cold Case), the reality hit showed signs of weakening. NBC’s performance helped CBS win the viewers while ABC took the demos.

MONDAY 2/23)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Jeff and Lester pester Ellie to hire their music group - called Jeffster! - as her wedding band.” That’s one way to ensure the Macarena won’t be played.

  • 24 (FOX, 9pm):  “Jack and Renee walker pursue Dubaku through the streets of Washington, D.C., with a little cyber help from Chloe.” If Bauer switched to Verizon, he could have a whole network working for him.
