Ratings: NBC Comedies Fall; Idol Rises
Bent is still in bad shape.
After premiering to dismal ratings last week, the Amanda Peet comedy dipped slightly to even lower numbers for its third and fourth episodes Wednesday, averaging 2.5 million viewers and a 0.9 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Unlike last week, Whitney (4.1 million, 1.5) and Are You There, Chelsea? (3.1 million, 1.2), also fell, closing their seasons on low notes. Combined with Rock Center with Brian Williams (3.2 million, 0.8), NBC averaged a measly 3.14 million viewers and a 1.0 for the night.
