Friday Ratings: Ex List is No Moonlight

Last Friday, number crunchers had their eyes on two events: the debut of The Ex List and the departure of Friday Night Smackdown. Unfortunately for CBS and CW, the news wasn’t good. Despite CBS’ win in both the demos and viewers, Moonlight started and ended better than Ex‘s premiere. Meanwhile, CW’s comedic lineup only did 1/2 as well as the network’s old wrestling staple.

NBC Lays Out Fall Schedule

Christian SlaterLast week, ‘s programming chief got a jump start on the competition by revealing his company’s calendar for next year.  In addition to the fall lineup, the programming schedule through Summer 2009 was revealed.

Of all the interesting notes, I actually found it quite refreshing to hear that the network will be working to keep the 8 o’clock time slot a “family hour”.  (In other words, they’ll put the most family friendly things they have - whether they really should be watched by children or not - during that portion of the evening.)  After the kids are put to bed, NBC will then kick things up a notch with an hour of “blockbuster” programming then sixty minutes of adult-themed content.

End of the Road for NBC’s ‘Journeyman’

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Daytime, NBC, Cancellations,

JourneymanThirteen is not only an unlucky number, it’s the only number is going to get.

Unlike other freshman dramas (e.g. , ), Journeyman will not get a full-season order.  NBC had until yesterday to express its intentions with the program.  Unfortunately, the studio chose not to waste more money on the ratings-challenged series.  (Just this Monday, the show scored almost 1 million less viewers than Life did in the same time slot last week.)

The drama, starring (Rome), completed 13 episodes before production ended.  Unlike ABC’s questionable move with Big Shots, NBC does intend to air Journeyman’s final two hours.

This Week on TV (12/3-12/9)

The Closer


MONDAY (12/3)
  • (TNT, 8pm):  The special two-hour holiday episode brings Brenda’s parents into the investigative fold.  Nothing says Christmas like talking blood with your blood.
  • (NBC, 9pm):  (NOTE:  This is the last new episode left.)  ‘Peter squares off against former friends thanks to Adam’s confusing story about the Shanti virus.’  He shouldn’t fault Adam; the confusing storyline is to blame.
  • (FOX, 9pm):  ‘Boulet and Cobb investigate an insurance adjuster’s murder.’  As if there weren’t enough people in New Orleans with a motive.
  • (NBC, 10pm): (First half of the two-parter; 2nd half airs Wednesday).  ‘Evidence points to Reese’s father in the murders that sent Crews to prison.’  I’m guessing this won’t be resolved anytime soon…otherwise, we wouldn’t have a show.
