Wednesday Ratings: FOX Comedies Bring Network Down

Despite great numbers for last week’s debut of Bones’ debut last week, FOX saw a decline for Week 2. (Poor performances from the network’s comedies didn’t help.) This allowed NBC to take back both the viewers and the demos yesterday.

Wednesday Ratings: ANTM Hits New Low

Unfortunately for CW, good luck did not come in threes.  Despite impressive debuts for Gossip Girl and 90210, the 11th cycle of America’s Next Top Model failed to impress. (In the show’s defense, it was pitted against stiff competition.) ANTM‘s performance gave FOX the chance to take over in the viewers and the demos.

Kung Fu Killer

MONDAY (8/11)
  • Sesame Street (PBS, check local listings):  Season 39 premiere. “One, two, three, four…chickens just back from the shore.
  • High School Musical: Get in the Picture (ABC, 8pm):  “The contestants get a lesson on how to express emotions without using words.” Tip #1: If you need to cry, cut a hole in your pocket, take a pair of tweezers, and just start pulling. (Thanks, Joey Tribbiani.)
  • The Closer (TNT, 9pm):  “Provenza gets in hot water when he loses evidence from a successfully executed sting operation.” Somebody better buy the boss a box a chocolates asap.
  • The Mole (ABC, 10pm):  “The mole’s last victim and the Mole are revealed in the fifth-season finale after all 12 players reunite.” If a mole is revealed but nobody’s there to see it, will a show get whacked?

This Week on TV (7/7-7/13)

Burn Notice

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

 

MONDAY (7/7)
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 8pm):  “In the season finale, DeAnna has a choice to make between the two finalists after taking her two suitors to a Grand Bahama Island and home to Georgia to meet her family.” In the event of a tiebreaker, the most photogenic candidate should always be chosen. Good wedding photos last forever.
  • Jon & Kate Plus 8 (TLC, 9pm):  “As the sextuplets turn 4, Jon and Kate take them to a bakery to decorate their own birthday cupcakes with the stipulation that they can’t eat them until after dinner.” Cupcakes? Note to the Jolie-Pitt clan. More kids = smaller birthday celebrations.
  • Verminators ( Discovery, 10pm):  “Jamie has to tackle his fears when he is called in to deal with a black widow.” Apparently someone needs to work on his rochambeau skills.
  • Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal (A&E, 10pm):  “A story of ReAnna Kelly, a girl supposedly visited by spirits, including that of her deceased grandmother, jazz singer Nina Simone.” There are times when hearing the song ‘Sinnerman’ is not so cool.
