Bent is still in bad shape.
After premiering to dismal ratings last week, the Amanda Peet comedy dipped ...
Bent is all but broken.
The Amanda Peet comedy premiered Wednesday to a dismal 2.8 million viewers and a 1.0 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Its second episode fell to 2.4 million and a 0.9. The numbers are the worst for a new NBC comedy premiere all season. Whitney, Are You There, Chelsea?, Up All Night and Free Agents all opened to at least 6 million viewers ...
Whether or not Jermaine Jones' American Idol disqualification was a ratings ploy all along, it didn't do much to lift the show's numbers.
Wednesday's two-hour episode — which teased Jones' dismissal for concealing a criminal past at the start before showing the pre-taped footage more than an hour later — drew 17.9 million viewers and ...
With little competition, American Idol's Top 13 performance show ruled Wednesday night.
The two-hour episode garnered 18.5 million viewers ...
American Idol's ladies weren't too far off of the boys' performance — ratings-wise, that is.
Idol's female semifinalists performance show won Wednesday for Fox with 17 million viewers and a 4.9 in the adults 18-to-49 demo — a tenth below Tuesday's rating. The ladies, however, managed to lure about a million more viewers than the guys did. Compared to last week, the demo was also down slightly, but viewership ...
The good news for American Idol? It won Wednesday night. The bad? It suffered another huge drop.
The former Fox juggernaut topped the night — which featured Part 1 of its Top 24 reveal — with 15.9 million viewers and a 5.1 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo, but was ...
The darkest timeline is over: Community will return on Thursday, March 15, NBC announced Tuesday.
In addition, the network announced premiere dates for midseason shows Bent, Best Friends Forever and Betty White's Off Their Rockers.
Off the schedule since December, Community will re-inherit its 8/7c slot from 30 Rock, which will shift to 8:30/7:30c, followed ...
Elisabeth Shue and Eric Szmanda
No Grissom and no Willows? No problem for CSI.
The veteran drama was one of two shows Wednesday to see a ratings bump, when it introduced Elisabeth Shue's Julie "Finn" Finlay, pulling in 11.1 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo (up 2 and 8 percent, respectively).
The other show to enjoy a gain? ...
Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson
Those writing about the inexorably declining ratings of American Idol will have to stand down for at least a day as the amateur talent competition stayed even with last week in the industry-prized 18-to-49 demographic, according to preliminary Nielsen figures.
Now, we'll have to see if the cliff-hanger involving the hopeful who fainted and fell off the stage gooses the ratings for Fox. (By comparison, fair or not, NBC's The Voice grabbed 17.69 million viewers with a 6.6 demo rating Monday night on its first regularly scheduled airing.)
One of the better things about a good episode of NBC's stalwart Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is that you can rarely tell where it's headed. Is tonight's cameo-heavy hour (10/9c) the latest condemnation of reality TV's sordid excesses? Sure looks that way at the start, as we encounter an especially slimy Michael McKean (relishing his repulsiveness) as the predatory producer of a crap-tastic train wreck titled Showgirls, featuring young hopefuls who would do "whatever it takes" to land the starring role in a Broadway musical. (No small irony this is airing the week of the all-important-to-NBC Smash premiere, where such things could never happen!) As he liquors up a nervous contestant for her "audition," he leers for her to "seduce the audience. Let them know you want this." Doesn't take a genius to know where this is going.
