Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

  • The fringes of success. Fringe premiered to OK, but not stellar, ratings on Tuesday, drawing about 9 million viewers for its 95-minute premiere.
  • 9021-ouch. After its record-breaking debut last week, 90210 crashed to Earth this week, registering just 3.3 million viewers, about a third below last week. (Still higher than Gossip Girl, though, which brought in about 3.2 million people.)
  • Meanwhile . . . Airing in the time slot opposite 90210, The Secret Life of the American Teenager got series-high (and ABC Family record) ratings for its finale, with 4.5 million viewers. And who directed that episode? Jason Priestley!
  • VMA magic. Britney Spears's three wins helped propel the MTV Video Music Awards to its best ratings in years, with 8.4 million viewers.
  • Standing up. Stand Up to Cancer brought in 10.3 million viewers last Friday, a totally respectable number to go along with that $100 million it raised.
  • True Blood in trouble? The Alan Ball series had a weak debut on Sunday, pulling in just 1.4 million viewers.

i can't believe that i forgot that 'secret life' had their finale this past week - i wonder if i can catch it on TV this week since ABC Family always reruns the shows...and to think that priestly directed it - i'm even more upset. as for this week's 90210 - there was just SO MUCH HYPE for the premier that you knew that the next one wasn't going to live up to those STELLAR ratings but if it's any consolation, GG didn't do as well and everyone's still be talking about both shows. i'm sure that they will continue to do well as the season continues - i didn't get to see Fringe but i really would like to since i really like JJ - i wonder if Fox will re-air the premier?

CoralAmber - I actually went and got some of the books beacuse I like the show too! I just finished the first 2! I hope the show sticks around for a while. HBO has a way of just cutting off my fave shows. Okay I'm just bitter about how they ended Carnivale but still. I hope they keep this one!

I loved True Blood. Of course since it was on HBO there was a bit of nudity, but the show made me want to read the books too. I'm actually a bit upset that it ended so soon. I was so absorbed the hour just flew by.
