Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

  • Farewell, Alan and Denny. The two-hour series finale of Boston Legal averaged 10.2 million viewers on Monday, with 10.8 million watching the final half-hour.
  • Ugly lipstick. Lipstick Jungle needed a pre-holiday ratings miracle to save itself from cancellation, and it doesn't look like that happened on Friday, when the show drew just 3.7 million viewers.
  • Not desperate at all. Desperate Housewives, which made news this week with its possible expansion to nine seasons, had a strong outing on Sunday with 16 million viewers.
  • Investigating the new guy. CSI welcomed a new character on Thursday, and an impressive audience of 20.6 million viewers tuned in to check him out.
  • Who needs new stuff? Repeats of two CBS shows, NCIS and The Mentalist, did better than original programming on other networks on Tuesday. NCIS got 14.1 million viewers to House's 13.9, and an hour later, The Mentalist drew 13.7 million viewers to The Biggest Loser's 10.1 million.

I think this episode sort of came back a bit too. I definitely look forward to it more than most shows that are on right now. And seriously, what do they expect for a Friday night during the holiday season?

Boston Legal will be missed.

i have to agree that the last few haven't been up to par - but i feel like there was something towards the end of this week that makes me want to watch a little more. i feel like the joe/victory thing isn't resolved so there's tension there and there's still more to come. we'll see i guess.

Sorry Lipstick Jungle, but the last few episodes have been disappointing...
