NBC needs some help, stat! Yesterday’s series premiere of Trauma did nothing for the Peacock network’s health on Mondays. The medical drama pulled in numbers smaller than last fall’s stinker, My Own Worst Enemy. By night’s end, ABC was on top with the viewers while FOX was 1st in the demos.

Friday Ratings: Weak Return for Dollhouse

Attention Dollhouse producers - get Summer Glau on quick! Had I not known that Dollhouse premiered last Friday, I would have assumed by the program’s numbers that it was still in repeats. Unfortunately, the Joss Whedon-created series made its return with the lowest demos for any original that evening. (It’s lead-in - Brothers—didn’t fare much better.) To make matters worse, the FOX drama also pulled in smaller numbers than several repeats.

Monday Ratings: Kanye and Jay are Gold Diggers

Kanye West on Jay Leno

Curiosity about ‘s new program was already high before this week—but then the VMAs happened, and the Peacock network lucked out.

The debut of NBC’s new 10:00 show was watched by a whopping 17.7 million viewers. That’s nearly double the audience that turned in for Leno’s “goodbye.” (That May finale drew in 11.9 million). The figure bests any number from an NBC series produced last season, including the premiere of Conan O’Brien’s show (9.2 million) in June.
