Sunday Ratings:  Tight Contest Between CBS, ABC

Thanks to a basketball overrun earlier in the evening, CBS was able to place first last night with the viewers.  However, ABC still put up a good fight and came away with the demos.

Sunday Ratings: ABC Tops on Easter Holiday

Although last night’s numbers were a bit confusing - CBS’ NCAA coverage caused show overlaps in parts of the country - it appears ABC managed to pull out another Sunday win.  The network was first in both the viewers and the demos.

This Week on TV (3/24-3/30)

The Hills

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/24)
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  The overly-promoted Britney Spears cameo finally airs tonight.  Let’s just be happy the show is only 30-minutes long.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  Nicole Scherzinger gives the girls tips on vocal expression.  Sadly, advice on releasing solo albums is not something she can dish out.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  New episode.  “A bride is murdered at her wedding.  The investigation takes the CSIs to a strip club where the bachelor party took place.”  Strip club? This would be the perfect time for another Elizabeth Berkley appearance.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  Season premiere.  I wonder if LC wore any of her own designs in Paris.  Doubt it.

This Week on TV (3/17-3/23)

How I Met Your Mother

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/17)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  Tonight’s Season 6 premiere focuses only on the men.  I think it’s safe to say Julianne Hough won’t be making it a three-peat with .
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm):  New episode.  “Sheldon and Leonard are asked to a physics conference to present their work together.”  I’ve always wondered - if this show were to air on any other day, would it be half as successful?
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  New episode.  “Ted decides to live life like Barney on St. Patrick’s Day.”  You don’t want to know what they use as their lucky charms.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  New episode.  “Charlie teaches Alan how to break up with a woman.”  I hear hiring prostitutes can make a woman leave you.
  • The Bachelor (ABC, 9:30):  Season 12 premiere.  “Bachelor Matt Grant, a 27-year-old British financier, meets his 25 would-be soul mates.”  Apparently in America, you can finally afford to woo twice as many women as you can in the UK.

Sunday Ratings: ABC Wins Despite Lower Numbers

Fans of Oprah were feeling slightly less charitable this week.  Although her show was still a hit in its hour, the program took a bit hit as well.

This Week on TV (3/10-3/16)

The Real Housewives of New York City

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/10)
  • The Bachelor: Where Are They Now? (ABC, 8pm):  “Highlights from past seasons include segments catching up with past bachelors (Andrew Firestone and Aaron Buerge) and former contestants.”  So the whole point of the show is to say there is no point to this show.  Look at how successful it’s been!
  • Canterbury’s Law (FOX, 8pm):  Series premiere.  “Julianna Margulies stars as a maverick defense lawyer who plays by her own rules to help the falsely accused.”  I’m guessing will still be on long after this program goes off the air.
  • New Amsterdam (FOX, 9pm):  Regular day and time.  If you didn’t watch last Tuesday or Thursday, I’m sure you won’t tonight either.
  • October Road (ABC, 9pm):  Special time.  In the season (series?) finale, “Eddie’s ex-girlfriend shows up to reconnect with him, causing problems in his relationship with Janet.”  Since we may never get a satisfactory resolution from this ratings-starved show, let’s just pretend Janet kicks her ass.

MONDAY (3/3)
  • The Royal Family (ABC, 8pm):  hosts a special that documents a year in the lives of the British royal family.  Wow - they’re letting people get to know them better?  That’s such a Diana move.
  • Terminator:  The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm):  “In the two-hour finale, John and Derek are at odds over whether Cameron can be trusted.”  Meanwhile, I’m still trying to figure out whether I’ll miss the show.
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  “Marty gets Josh an interview with the president of Paramount.”  At least one of them will have a job when the show’s cancelled.
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS, 9:30):  “Matthew goes to therapy to discuss intimacy issues and learns he is too dependent on his sister.”  Did anyone else shudder when they read that sentence?

Is Unhitched Worth Watching?

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, FOX, Editorial, Video,

UnhitchedThey say you really shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover.  But you know, in some cases, that time-saving strategy can really tell you a lot.

Case in point:  FOX’s new comedy .  The show (debuting this weekend) almost lured me in with names like Rashida Jones, Craig Bierko and the Farrelly brothers.  But then I saw some teasers.  And now I’m convinced a few seconds has revealed quite enough.  (You can view those clips, after the jump.)

I knew a show that had Bobby and Peter Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary) on board as executive producers could possibly be over the top, but I thought at the very minimum the ‘comedy’ would be funny.  It isn’t.  Both the writing and production feel cheap and Bierko - who I’ve loved in other projects - sticks out like an overacting sore thumb.  Thankfully, (The Office) comes off well in the straight girl role.

Those who do find the following snippets amusing can watch their first full episode this Sunday @ 9:30 on FOX.
