Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

  • OZ-some. Tin Man became the most-watched program in Sci-Fi Channel history this week, and the premiere was its most-watched single broadcast ever. Each of the miniseries' three nights brought in more than 5 million viewers.
  • Holy tornado! The disaster that struck Wisteria Lane swept up a better-than-average 20.6 million Desperate Housewives viewers in its wake. It was the series' most-watched broadcast in a year.
  • Samantha Uh-Oh. Without its Dancing with the Stars lead-in, Samantha Who? took a tumble — all the way down to 7.5 million viewers. Its previous airing had gotten 12.6 million viewers.
  • Rudolph power! In a season when all Christmas specials have been doing well, CBS's broadcast of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer had a particularly good showing on Wednesday, with 15.2 million viewers.
  • Strange Life. Life should have gotten a boost by airing after the chapter finale of Heroes, but instead it stalled in its special Monday time slot with just 6.6 million viewers. The better news was that its regular Wednesday episode — the conclusion of a two-part story that started Monday — got a better 7.6 million viewers.

I'm not surprised that Housewives got such high ratings. I don't watch it that often but I saw the preview for the tornado episode and I told my mom not to delete it before I saw it because, really- how could it not be great.

Samantha Who lost the ratings because we were all watching TIN MAN! Woo woo! I agree that it was cheesy at times BUT zooey made it so awesome!!

I love Life, I really hope it doesn't get kicked to the curb. It really is such a good show, probably underrated, but good nonetheless.

That's a bummer that Samantha Who lost some of its audience. But, it's only one week and I don't put much stock in ratins anyway. My favorite show Veronica Mars didn't have huge ratings, but was probably one of the best shows on tv. Damn you CW for not renewing it! haha.

Gotta love Rudolph! And good for Desperate Housewives; too bad we may have to wait forever to see how it all resolves.

I like the Tin Man too. Some of the acting was a bit on the cheesy side, but I love the story :-) And I love that guy that played Kane the Tin Man. He is SO handsome
