MONDAY 1/19)
  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Ricky’s dad arrives in town with a proposal for how Ricky should handle impending fatherhood.” Apparently leaving town is an option?
  • House (FOX, 8pm):  “Cuddy discovers that caring for her newly adopted baby leaves her little time to run the hospital.” Taking care of House and a baby is an impossible feat.
  • Bromance (MTV, 9pm):  “The guys embark on a camping trip, but before reaching their destination, they stop at a biker bar where each must face off against a huge biker in the parking lot.” The reality is, many people want to kick ‘s ass. It’s time to hone their defense skills now.
  • Paranormal State (A&E, 10pm):  Season premiere. “A family believes their new home in suburban New Jersey is haunted. The team’s investigation leads them to dig in the yard for possible answers.” Haunting or no haunting, buried things in my yard is reason enough to move.

Wednesday Ratings: Patrick Swayze Draws Supporters

Seems Barbara Walters’ endless plugs on The View weren’t in vain. Yesterday’s exclusive interview with Patrick Swayze wound up being the night’s most-watched show. Unfortunately, CBS still managed to win the evening in both categories thanks to a stronger lineup.

Wednesday Ratings: Secret Millionaire Not So Secret Anymore

There’s nothing viewers like more than watching people give out money. Yesterday, FOX’s Secret Millionaire built upon last week’s numbers and won its hour in the demos. CBS, though, was the top network in both categories this Wednesday.

Wednesday Ratings: Pushing Daisies Clinging to Life

As hard as it is for me to admit, it looks like my darling Pushing Daisies will soon be pushed out the door. Despite an Obama bump for its last outing, the show couldn’t maintain the audience. Yesterday’s episode even performed lower than the last unassisted show. CBS had a good evening though. Season high numbers for the two comedies gave the network wins in both categories last night.

Wednesday Ratings: CMAs Top Draw for ABC

For the 2nd Wednesday in a row, ABC benefited from non-regular programming. Last week, the Alphabet network had a special episode of DWTS. This week, the CMAs were the one to thank. Yesterday’s broadcast of the 42nd annual event gave ABC wins in both the viewers and the demos.

Wednesday Ratings: Viewers Suffering from Post-Election Crash

Voters tired of political ads - and television in general - took a rest from the boob tube last night. This meant lower numbers for most programs and a disappointing season debut for Law & Order. (The show had its worst Wednesday ever.) Thanks to a rare mid-week airing of DWTS, ABC was tops with the viewers yesterday. Meanwhile, the Alphabet network was also tied with FOX in the demos.

Wednesday Ratings: Daisies Gets a Little Push from Obama

Although Barack Obama was the most watched person over the five major networks (a combined 26.3 million watched him on CBS, FOX and NBC), Game 5 of the World Series was the most-watched event on one network last night. And while it still lagged behind the political infomercial, Pushing Daisies did get a nice bump from bored voters.
