Monday Ratings: Repeats Rule the Night

Sadly, a heaping of reality shows could not compete with a crop of stale programs. FOX’s dramatic lineup ended up winning the night in both the viewers and the demos.

Monday Ratings: Repeats Outperform Originals

Although Nashville Star did better on NBC than it ever did on the USA, the reality competition did little for the Peacock network. CBS wound up taking the evening in both the viewers and the demos.

Monday Ratings: American Gladiators Still Weak

Despite the lack of new episodes, American Gladiators was still fairly unimpressive. Although the program showed improvement, it was overpowered by comedic repeats. In the end, CBS swept the night in both the viewers and the demos.

This Week on TV (5/26-6/1)

Ben on Lost

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

 

MONDAY (5/26)
  • American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  “A tree climber tries to rise above a SWAT officer.” If tree boy gets a chance at the wall, his opponent will have no choice but to gas him.
  • Flavor of Love 3 (VH1, 9pm):  “The cast of Season 3 reunites.” I often wonder what a sober Brigitte Nielsen thinks about this.
  • Denise Richards: It’s Complicated (E!, 10pm):  “Denise goes on a blind date with a so-called regular guy.” When you’re getting alimony and child support from your celebrity ex, you can afford to go out with “regular guys”.
  • Living Lohan (E!, 10:30):  The title of the tonight’s premiere is “Mommy Will Fix It.” I hope she’s referring to Ali’s hair.

A new season calls for a new schedule.

If you’re without anything to do this summer, this updated programming schedule may help keep you occupied.  Over the next few months, networks will be introducing a crop of reality shows (Celebrity Circus, Greatest American Dog), some experimental dramas (Swingtown, Fear Itself) and the usual horde of repeats.

This list is a

compilation of the calendars

for the five major networks.

Monday Ratings: Weak Premiere for American Gladiators

Why NBC chose to bring back American Gladiators at this time is beyond me.  Had the show debuted after the latest round of finales, it might have fared better than fourth place.  Meanwhile, ABC was another winner with the viewers while FOX was tops in the demos.

Gladiators Fail to Slay Competition

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Editorial,

American Gladiators Season 2

won big ratings and big press during the writer’s strike, prompting NBC to immediately sign the series for another season, cast new gladiators and create bigger, better events for a triumphant second season return. The season kicked off last night…but was it as victorious as NBC hoped?

Ratings-wise, American Gladiators is already going the way of other shows (to third or last place). FOX’s House led the night, while the Gladiators raked in only about 4.9 million watchers.

The season premiered with bigger obstacles, more competitors and a bevy of new Gladiators, all in hopes that this could be the show to secure NBC a first-place ratings slot. For those of you who didn’t watch it, I did.

American Gladiators, Rocket and Jet

 

MONDAY (5/12)

Tonight’s finales: The Hills, Medium, Samantha Who?, The Bachelor

  • American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  Season Two premiere includes new gladiators (‘Rocket’ and ‘Jet’).  Seriously, how intimidating could a smiling Gladiator be?
  • Bones (FOX, 8pm):  “When the body of an aspiring singer (Ace Young of ) is discovered, Booth and Brennan probe a club’s open-mike night.”  Uhh—which one was Ace again?
  • Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm):  “An embarrassed Serena resurrects some troubling old habits as she continues to hide the truth from Dan.”  If he only knew she’d been sharing her jeans with three other girls.
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30pm):  “Britney Spears returns as Abby, who is now dating Barney.”  First Robin Sparkles, now Britney.  I’m not sure if that’s a step up or down for Barney.
