Wednesday Ratings: Criminal Minds Has a Strong Showing

Last night, Criminal Minds delivered impressive numbers despite being in repeats. Unfortunately, the drama couldn’t help CBS take down FOX. The first half of the SYTYCD finale gave its network wins in the demos and the viewers.

Wednesday Ratings: Greatest American Dog Rolls Over

CBS’ decision to bring Greatest American Dog to Wednesdays didn’t do much for the network. That said, an early repeat of SYTYCD allowed CBS to take a rare win in the viewers. Meanwhile, the demos still belonged to FOX.

Wednesday Ratings: Viewers Tap Their Toes to FOX

Try as they might, no competitor could take down FOX. Last night, SYTYCD once again helped its network take wins in both categories.

Wednesday Ratings: Celebrity Circus Ends Quietly

Viewers didn’t seem particularly interested about last night’s Celebrity Circus finale. They did, though, care about the Top Ten contestants on SYTYCD. The dancing competition once again helped FOX win both the demos and the viewers.

This Week on TV (7/14-7/20)

Saving Grace

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

 

MONDAY (7/14)
  • Top Gear (BBC, 8pm):  Season premiere. “A game of car soccer is played.” No wonder kids are too fat these days. They can’t even get out of their car to actually kick a ball!
  • American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  “In the ladies tilt, a student tries to make the grade against a future figure skater.” As we’ve learned from , figure skaters come with an unfair advantage.
  • The Closer (TNT, 9pm): Season 4 premiere. “Fritz and Brenda’s new duplex forbids the presence of pets, but that doesn’t stop Brenda from keeping Kitty on the premises.” If Kitty is the pet, what’s Fritz?
  • Saving Grace (TNT, 10pm):  Season 2 premiere. “Grace gets busy on her day off: She works to unlock the secrets of her her haunted past, but instead ends up apprehending a criminal on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.” And I’ll bet she doesn’t get paid for doing all that work on her own time.

Wednesday Ratings: SYTYCD Remains Strong

Wednesday night’s ratings landscape showed very little change this week. The three main reality programs (Baby Borrowers, Celebrity Circus and So You Think You Can Dance) were all steady with their previous numbers. This gave FOX another win in both categories.

Burn Notice

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

 

MONDAY (7/7)
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 8pm):  “In the season finale, DeAnna has a choice to make between the two finalists after taking her two suitors to a Grand Bahama Island and home to Georgia to meet her family.” In the event of a tiebreaker, the most photogenic candidate should always be chosen. Good wedding photos last forever.
  • Jon & Kate Plus 8 (TLC, 9pm):  “As the sextuplets turn 4, Jon and Kate take them to a bakery to decorate their own birthday cupcakes with the stipulation that they can’t eat them until after dinner.” Cupcakes? Note to the Jolie-Pitt clan. More kids = smaller birthday celebrations.
  • Verminators ( Discovery, 10pm):  “Jamie has to tackle his fears when he is called in to deal with a black widow.” Apparently someone needs to work on his rochambeau skills.
  • Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal (A&E, 10pm):  “A story of ReAnna Kelly, a girl supposedly visited by spirits, including that of her deceased grandmother, jazz singer Nina Simone.” There are times when hearing the song ‘Sinnerman’ is not so cool.

Wednesday Ratings: FOX Reality Wins Again

NBC’s Baby Borrowers did a good job keeping the viewers’ interest. The parenting show helped the Peacock network place second with the 18-49 set. Meanwhile, FOX was tops in both the viewers and the demos.

Shear Genius 2

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

 

MONDAY (6/30)
  • American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  “Four amateur athletes who successfully lost weight are featured.” That’s exactly the way Wolf likes them: nice and skinny.
  • The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All (ABC, 9pm):  “Fifteen of DeAnna’s suitors dish with - and about - the Bachelorette who let them get away.” Thankfully, this version is not the one we would get on MTV.
  • 46664: A Concert for Nelson Mandela (VH1, 9pm): Those helping to celebrate Mandela’s life outside bars include performers who should be behind them (e.g. ).
  • Verminators (Discovery, 10pm):  “The source of a roach infestation at an apartment building shocks Mike.” There’s a reason why they say ignorance is bliss.
