Tuesday Ratings: Loser’s a Winner for NBC

NBC easily outweighed the competition last night. Tuesday’s finale of The Biggest Loser tallied its best ratings since the fall 2005 ender. That meant a double-win for the network. Meanwhile, a new Disney creation was a bright spot for ABC yesterday.

This Week on TV (11/23-11/29)

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

(Make sure to check out TV Envy’s Programming Schedule.)

 

MONDAY (11/23)
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 8pm):  “Molly fails a Spanish test and decides to stop speaking English until she masters the foreign language.” And you didn’t think anybody learned anything on this channel.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie’s male ego is bruised when he learns that he hasn’t been satisfying Chelsea.” Well, it has been a long time since he was a Hot Shot.
  • Jon & Kate Plus 8 (TLC, 10pm):  “Jon and Kate reflect on changes in their lives and the ups and downs over the years in the series finale.” Just so I’m clear—would Jon’s weight be considered an up or a down?

Tuesday Ratings: Heather Hardly Helps Melrose

Didn’t know Heather Locklear was moving back to Melrose Place? Apparently you weren’t the only who missed that invite. Locklear’s return to the famous address hardly raised an eyebrow last night. The CW program still pulled in under a 1.0 in the rating and trailed behind its lead-in.

  • (9.3 million, 3.1/8) let another 1.4 million escape.

Tuesday Ratings: V Comes Back to Earth

The novelty of aliens on Earth was bound to wear off sometime soon. After a spectacular debut just seven days ago, V fell 27% in the prime demos. Although that’s the largest Week 2 drop for any scripted show this season, the resulting number should still be pleasing to ABC.

V's Elizabeth Mitchell8pm

  • (20.1 million, 4.4/12 in 18-49) picked up 700,000.
  • (10.7 million, 3.8/10) lost 3.2 million.

This Week on TV (11/9-11/15)


(Make sure to check out TV Envy’s Programming Schedule.)

 

MONDAY (11/9)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie and Alan wake up together…with a woman they don’t recognize.” Strange, but significantly less awkward than two and a half men.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Ray Langston of the Las Vegas crime lab arrives in Miami to investigate after a severed leg found in the Everglades is discovered to belong to a girl who disappeared in Las Vegas a week earlier.” Horatio + Morpheus = sunglasses showdown.
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 10pm):  “Jake gets his own cell phone for his 12th birthday, and before long he racks up an outrageous bill, making Matt and Amy question whether he s ready for the responsibility.” The Learning Channel is not known for highlighting responsibility—in pre-teens or fathers of eight.
