Ratings Round Up

27 Nov


Overall Winner: With a 2.1 rating and a 6 share CBS’s heaping helping of leftovers won the night, led by The Big Bang Theory.

In a move that has restored my faith in humanity, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving beat A Very GaGa Thanksgiving.  ABC programming couldn’t find a better entertainer to profile for Thanksgiving. Sorry monsters.

In my Friday What You Should Watch post I asked if Hoops and YoYo would become the new Christmas special classics for this generation.  Based on the ratings 0.8 and a 3 share I would say Rudolph’s and Frosty’s places in history are safe.

The winner of the night

Univision, yes you read that right, the Spanish language channel beat out the English broadcast channels

To be fair to the networks were running repeats and crappy new Christmas Specials.  FOX was second with Iron Man

Preliminary numbers are in and ABC wins the night with the Standford Notre Dame game.

Bubble Watch – Bubble doesn’t mean cancelled – Maybe?

13 Nov

TV by the Numbers has updated it’s Bubble list, they have added Bones, Ringer, and Rules of Engagement.

Keep in mind Bubble watch seeks to predict what will happen to a show by season’s end, based on its ongoing performance.  Last year they predicted Fringe would be cancelled and it wasn’t, there is always hope.

Bones is on the bubble because, “it is an older show with ok ratings”. It is also airing a shorter season due to Emily’s pregnancy, to make up for it they are airing the Bones spin off  The Finder.  I remember the episode last season when they introduced the characters and the concept for the finder and I was not impressed. 

Ringer, “it might be easier to just put all the CW shows other than the Vampire diaries on the bubble”, an excellent suggestion, but as the article points out not very practical. I suppose the CW could cancel everything but TVD and start over.  I would get rid of 90210 and Gossip Girl, before Ringer. 

Here is a snapshot of each category, a link to the full article can be found below.
