Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

  • Makeover Week is magic. The much-anticipated makeover episode of "America's Next Top Model" pushed the series to a season high of 5.29 million viewers.
  • Too bad "Gossip Girl" couldn't take advantage. The show doesn't have too much to worry about since it was picked up for a full season, but it's still struggling with just about 2.9 million viewers.
  • Keep pushing "Daisies." "Pushing Daisies" lost about 3 million viewers from its premiere, but it still got 10 million viewers and won the all-important 18-49 demographic in its time slot.
  • Big problems for "Big Shots"? "Big Shots" got 9.2 million viewers this week — but 3 million of them changed the channel to something else in the show's second half-hour.
  • Time slot wars! "CSI" narrowly beat "Grey's Anatomy" again this week, while "Private Practice" kept its lead over "Bionic Woman" and "Dirty Sexy Money" barely edged "Life."
  • Say "ugh" to "Cavemen." The show lost 2 million viewers over its premiere. And yet, it still had better ratings for the week than Emmy-winning "30 Rock."
  • Trouble for spies and time travelers? "Chuck" and "Journeyman" had rough weeks, with just more than 7 million viewers for "Chuck" and just less than that for "Journeyman."
  • Keep those "Lights" on! "Friday Night Lights" got a better-than-expected 6.5 million viewers in its first episode on Friday nights. Go Panthers!

Go Panthers! Hope the ratings stay up though the competition from Women's Murder Club could be tough. FNL still tops my list of must sees!

Loved the ANTM makeovers!! :D, i love Ebony's photoshoot with the flower themes and i really like Janet,Saleisha, Lisa,Sarah and Jenah's look, so bad what happened to Bianca but she's not the first to be kicking it with a very low haircut and i really don't like that wig :(, Ambreal doesn't look that bad either.

I'm really enjoying "Chuck" and sorry to see the ratings for it slipping already. I hope NBC gives it a chance to develop a following. Last week's episode was the best one yet.

Hey Pinkflats, no problem — Reaper is getting about the same kind of numbers as Gossip Girl. The good news is that Beauty and the Geek also gets about the same numbers right before it, so it's not driving people away from the CW on Tuesdays! No word on a full season yet, though.

ohh great for ANTM!! hey buzz, do you know how well REAPER is doing in the ratings or has it been picked up for full season. i love the show too much to see it get cancelled early on. and i realize i could do the search myself instead of asking you all this questions, but that would mean it will take me away from sugar so i hope you don't mind all the asking. lol.
