Wednesday Ratings: Presidential Debate Draws Interest

Even though it was the umpteenth time Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton had faced off, ABC’s debate actually did quite well…especially on an American Idol night.

8pm
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton

  • Yesterday’s 2008 presidential (10.7 million, 2.7/7 in 18-49) was the season’s most-watched.
  • (9.7 million, 2.6/8) and Big Brother (6.1 million, 2.3/7) were both up 100,00 from last week.
  • (2.0/7) had 5.8 million laughing; (7 million, 2.4/7) did even better.
  • About 3.7 million saw Stacy-Ann sent home on (1.8/6).

Wednesday Ratings: Fewer Viewers Give Back to American Idol

An Idol Gives Back show without an elimination is really just a so-so event.  Although the program was last night’s most watched program, it was down 34% in the demos from a year ago.

Monday Ratings: Spears Brings Attention to CBS’ Mother

Last night, How I Met Your Mother‘s casting experiment paid off nicely for the comedy.  The show - which is not yet on the network’s renewal list - earned its best demo performance ever.  By night’s end, CBS was tops in the 18-49 group while ABC was #1 in total viewers.

This Week on TV (3/24-3/30)

The Hills

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/24)
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  The overly-promoted Britney Spears cameo finally airs tonight.  Let’s just be happy the show is only 30-minutes long.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  Nicole Scherzinger gives the girls tips on vocal expression.  Sadly, advice on releasing solo albums is not something she can dish out.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  New episode.  “A bride is murdered at her wedding.  The investigation takes the CSIs to a strip club where the bachelor party took place.”  Strip club? This would be the perfect time for another Elizabeth Berkley appearance.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  Season premiere.  I wonder if LC wore any of her own designs in Paris.  Doubt it.

Monday Ratings: Returning Shows Get Warm Welcome

For the first time in quite a while, it appears we may have had more original episodes on TV last night than repeats.  Although CBS’ comedy lineup saw strong numbers, it couldn’t outmatch the debut of Dancing with the Stars.  ABC ended up winning the evening in the viewers and demos.
