Ratings: Man Up! Stays Down

Man Up

Man Up! remained virtually even with its series-low numbers from last week, reaching 6.27 million viewers and 1.7 rating among industry-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, and Tim Allen's Last Man Standing, which precedes it at 8/7c, declined from a week ago, attracting 8.97 million people (2.6 demo rating), according to Nielsen overnights. So it's not getting easier for these guys — and it looks like Allen will indeed be the last man standing from this time slot.

Fall TV Analysis: Inside ABC's Hot Streak

Emily VanCamp

When ABC announced its fall schedule in May, the network's critics and competitors were skeptical. Not only were its aging dramas quickly eroding, but ABC faced a formidable task in launching a whopping 13 new series.

It seemed like a tall order for ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee, who was coming off his first full development season at the network. But as NBC sinks into an even deeper slump, ABC has somehow managed to defy the odds. It doesn't yet boast the ratings prowess of top-rated CBS and Fox, but Lee is encouraged by his network's ability to debut a handful of promising new series. read more

Ratings: Man Up! and Tim Allen's Sitcom Continue to Slide

Man Up!

If life is tough for today's men, getting folks to watch that is even tougher.

ABC's tandem of Man Up! and Last Man Standing keeps losing viewers, though the downward spiral has stabilized. The half-hour ABC sitcom about guys grappling with what it's like to be a modern man rustled up 6.41 million people and notched a 1.8 rating among industry-prized 18-to-49-year-olds. Last week it rousted 6.75 million viewers — down about 13 percent from the 7.80 million who tuned in for its debut -- and it sank in the demo to a 1.9 rating from 2.4.

Ratings: Man Up! Debuts with 7.8 Million Viewers

Mather Zickel. Teri Polo

Man Up! Ratings meh! Last Man Standing? Nearly 3 million standing ... and walking away.

The debut of the ABC sitcom about three guys (Christopher Moynihan, Mather Zickel and Dan Folger) sussing out what it takes to be a modern man (and whether it includes using pomegranate body wash) grabbed 7.8 million viewers at 8:30/7:30c, posting a 2.4 rating among industry-prized 18-to-49-year-olds — third in its time slot by both measures. Reviews deemed the show insultingly bad.

At 8/7c, a week after Tim Allen's new sitcom debuted to 12.95 million viewers, the show had 10.20 million tuning back in — a 21 percent drop. It also garnered a 3.0 demo rating, down from 3.5 a week ago.
