Monday Ratings: Lackluster Finales for Heroes, Chuck

If there ever was a time for fans to come out and support Chuck, it would have been last night. Unfortunately, the numbers for both NBC finales were basically flat from last week. (At least the network has already declared that Heroes will get a return.) Meanwhile, FOX beat out CBS in a tight race for the demos while ABC was in first with the viewers.

Monday Ratings: Bones is No House

Attempts to give Bones more attention didn’t do much for either the show or the network. Despite decreased competition from CBS, the program pulled in smaller numbers than the normal slot holder. The series also declined from its last Thursday outing.

Monday Ratings: NBC Actually Improves

Yes, yes - you heard me right: NBC showed signs of life yesterday. But let’s not get too excited now. It’s not like the network won anything. (The Peacock was still in fourth place.) It just didn’t suck as badly as it has been.

Monday Ratings: FOX and ABC Divide the Night

Despite all the 10’s issued on Dancing with the Stars last night, ABC narrowly lost the demos to FOX yesterday. Hot ballroom action did stir up the evening’s biggest audience though.

This Week on TV (3/30-4/5)

Jonathan Rhys Meyers in The Tudors

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

 

MONDAY 3/30)
  • Greek (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Casey returns from her summer internship with secret plans to move out of her sorority house.” Unfortunately, she couldn’t wait to change her Facebook profile.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie blows off steam by sharing a drunken night with Alan, Herb and his neighbor after Chelsea discovers nude photos of another woman on his cell phone.” Kinda makes you wonder what has on her ex.
  • Rules of Engagement (CW, 9:30pm):  “Jeff and Audrey lie to get out of Jennifer and Adam’s dinner party in favor of a better bash.” Fondue parties are so 5 years ago.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Ryan is kidnapped and forced to betray Horatio and the team.” Cue Horatio lowering glasses in disappointment.

Monday Ratings: New Lows for Heroes, Medium

If you thought a repeat of Two and a Half Men might help Heroes’ chances, you were wrong. Last night, the wilting NBC program once again saw its smallest audience to date. That poor performance led into a series low for Medium as well.

Medium's Patricia Arquette8pm

  • (20.2 million, 4.9/13 in 18-49) stumbled by 900,000.
  • * (7.7 million, 2.6/7) sent 5.1 million home.
  • A original (7.4 million, 2.9/8) didn’t do as well as The Big Bang Theory; a HIMYM repeat (2.6/7) turned in 6.9 million.
  • (2.1/6) registered 6.1 million.
  • (2.2 million, 1.0/3) remained steady.

Monday Ratings: Castle Has Strong Second Outing

While it’s doubtful Castle would be able to do this well without DWTS’ support, the series did show promise in its second week. The Nathan Fillion vehicle joined forces with the ballroom hit to give ABC another double win last night.

Monday Ratings: DWTS Has Best Premiere Yet

Jewel and Nancy O’Dell’s loss was Dancing with the Stars’ gain. Despite being in its 8th season, the program saw its largest premiere audience to date. (I think we can safely attribute that to the Melissa Rycroft factor.) The reality show’s return easily gave ABC wins in both the viewers and the demos last night.

Monday Ratings: Rosy Evening for ABC

Jason Mesnick’s shocking reveal might not have done much for his reputation, but it did plenty for ABC. Yesterday’s Bachelor episode saw its largest audience since 2003 (when Bob Guiney picked Estella Gardinier). The finale - coupled with the post-show special - also led ABC to an easy win last night.

Breaking Bad

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

 

MONDAY 3/2)
  • The Bachelor (ABC, 8pm):  “It’s down to Melissa and Molly as Jason bestows the final rose.” But first, two more quick trips to the hot tub.
  • Rules of Engagement (CBS, 9:30pm):  Season premiere. “Audrey learns Russell is a closet Broadway musical fan, and uses the knowledge to blackmail him for theater tickets.” Tip: Blackmail is best used when Broadway shows aren’t closing.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “A murder occurs onboard a yacht belonging to high-powered attorney Derek Powell (Sean Combs).” Blood at Diddy’s “White Party”? That’s gonna stain.
  • Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC, 12:30am):  “Jimmy Fallon’s inaugural show features Robert De Niro and Justin Timberlake.” has been working for years to get both these guys.
