Sunday Ratings: CBS Rises Above with Grammys

Pink wasn’t the only one flying high last night. Thanks to its 52nd Annual Grammy Awards coverage, CBS was a little bit out of everyone’s reach.

Sunday Ratings: Grammys Sing for CBS

Last night, big events had eyes drawn to the Eye network. 60 Minutes’ exclusive interview with Capt. Sullenberger and the 51st Annual Grammy Awards put CBS on top with the viewers and the demos.

Chuck in 3-D

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


  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “In a 3-D edition, global rock star Tyler Martin () is marked for murder, so the agents kidnap the musician to discover who’s behind the deadly plot.”  Unfortunately, they don’t understand his “My-plane-crashed-on-an-island-and-there-were-these-Others” story either.
  • Heroes (NBC, 9pm):  “The newly powerless Hiro resolves to help Ando become a true superhero.” Sorry, Suresh. You’re stuck with creating powers for yourself.
  • Medium (NBC, 10pm):  Season premiere. “Daughter Bridgette lands in trouble at school for drawing nude pictures of her art teacher.” She earned an “A” for technique, but an “F” for accuracy.
  • For the Love of Ray J (VH1, 10:30pm):  Series premiere. “The actor, singer-songwriter and brother of Brandy moves 14 beautiful women into his mansion and starts his search for love.” If can get a reality show, I guess her sex tape partner should get one too.

Wednesday Ratings: Angels and Reindeers Score for CBS

CBS surprisingly did well yesterday without its usual Wednesday lineup. The network’s night of variety - Rudolph, Grammys, Heidi - ended up taking the night’s demos. Meanwhile, crime-free competition helped NBC pick up a rare win with the viewers.

Sunday Ratings:  Grammys Fail to Entertain

Last night’s Grammys telecast failed to strike a chord with viewers.  (Only two other broadcasts in Grammy history have achieved lower numbers.)  Regardless, the awards show still gave a decisive win in the viewers and demos.

The Best and Worst Grammy Acceptance Speeches

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Award Shows, Music, CBS, Editorial, Video,

In my opinion, these two artists earned the distinction of delivering both the Best and Worst speeches at last night’s .

- who looked genuinely shocked at her Record of the Year Award - reminded us all about her recent scandals when we should have been focusing on her talent.  To her “incarcerated” husband, Blake - Happy Valentine’s Day!

Survivor Micronesia

(You can view the whole Revamped TV Programming Schedule here.)


MONDAY (2/4)
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  Series premiere.  “A Hollywood wunderkind in a career slump is persuaded by his friend to move into his famous Tinseltown apartment building with an eclectic group of tenants.”  Eclectic = show gone soon.
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 9pm):  “John discovers the figure may be bleaker than he imagined.”  I’m confused.  If he’s currently in 2007, he should have already seen what the future looks like in .
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS, 9:30):  Season Three premiere.  “Christine gets overly nervous about sleeping with Mr. Harris () for the first time.”  I think I already saw this episode…..on .
  • Late Night With David Letterman (CBS, 11:30):  Hillary Clinton sits down with the talk show host.  Any woman who can make us forget deserves to be President.

Could the Writers Strike Really Be Ending?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Award Shows, News,

Writers Strike photoThe has just dropped two of their demands: proposals to unionize and writers. This brings us all right back to the central issue: Internet and new-media revenue. By the Guild’s own admission, this concession (which comes only after the writers were repeatedly asked to make just this concession) is an olive branch - everyone wants the strike to end. Negotiations will continue this week as both sides try to reach some conclusion.

The writers have also made the decision not to picket the ceremony, which bodes well for the rest of the season. The striking writers, so far, have not agreed on an interim deal which will allow them to be a part of the spectacle. But there does seem to be some hope on the horizon…at last.
