Wednesday Ratings: The Unusuals Does the Usual

Despite a flurry of promotion for the new series, ABC’s The Unusuals did what most shows do in that time slot: not much of anything. The premiere lost 18% of its lead-in’s audience and made it that much easier for FOX to dominate.

Wednesday Ratings: Lost Hits All-Time Low

As I predicted, Lost was not better off with Ted last night. Even though most shows saw decreases yesterday, the ABC series had its smallest audience to date.

Wednesday Ratings: Chopping Block Fails to Make the Cut

Cooking-related shows may serve well for FOX and Bravo, but they do nothing for NBC. Last night’s premiere of The Chopping Block debuted to fewer viewers than Knight Rider‘s finale. (Ouch!) Meanwhile, Lie to Me performed better than expected in its new time slot. The freshman drama worked with American Idol to give FOX two easy victories.

Wednesday Ratings: Top Model Returns in Style

The 12th season of America’s Next Top Model premiered on a healthy note last night. (That’s good news for the show’s 13th and 14th installments.) Even though it faced direct competition from American Idol, the CW program was up 11% from its fall debut.

Monday Ratings: Heroes Can’t Rescue NBC

CBS’ repeat-filled lineup gave NBC a chance to pick up some ground yesterday. Unfortunately, the Peacock squandered its opportunity and sunk even further last night. FOX, in the meantime, seized the evening and placed first in both the viewers and the demos.

Wednesday Ratings: Lost Comes Back to Life

Despite a slow decline since its season debut, Lost saw a spark of life last night. Yesterday’s episode saw the return of the Oceanic 6…and the viewers. But, as we know, there isn’t anything Jack or Ben can do to topple American Idol. FOX easily won both categories this Wednesday.

Wednesday Ratings: Lost Suffers an Idol Blow

There’s nothing like an expanded Idol to give perfectly good shows a hard time. Yesterday’s two-hour Hollywood Week episode contributed to Lost‘s season-low numbers. The good news? The ABC program still had the best demos of any scripted program last night.

Even though it posted the best demos of its hour, the Season 5 premiere of Lost was off approximately 25% from its last opener. Meanwhile, FOX’s Lie to Me debuted to a larger audience than its direct ABC competitor.
