Number Crunching: This Week's TV Ratings

  • Oprah's big numbers. Should we be surprised? Oprah's Big Give raked in some huge ratings this week, pulling in about 15.6 million viewers for its premiere — one of the biggest debuts of the season.
  • Lower than, um, Dirt. Dirt made a mess of its season premiere ratings, dropping to just 1.7 million viewers for Sunday's episode. In contrast, 3.7 million people watched the first-season finale last year.
  • Rocking the Runway. The season finale of Project Runway was Bravo's highest-rated program ever among adults 18-49, with an average of 3.75 million viewers in that demographic tuning in. Overall, it pulled in 5.2 million viewers, just barely down from the season three finale, which brought in 5.3 million viewers.
  • Model Top no more. America's Next Top Model used to be a ratings boon for the CW, but this season, the show's been struggling. Wednesday's installment brought in just 3.6 million viewers — not good for a show that topped 5 million viewers in the Fall.
  • New Amsterdam a new hit? Fox's New Amsterdam got the benefit of a prime post-Idol slot for its premiere on Tuesday and pulled in about 13.7 million viewers. A second episode on Thursday was less impressive, though, with about 10.6 million viewers.

I am a bit bored by ANTM too, Tyra seems too full of herself. I rather watch crappy Big Brother instead~

ANTM comes on at the same time as Idol too so I am sure that plays into the loss as well.

I actually really like Oprah's new show. It's really good! I'm also sick of Tyra. The selection of girls get worse every season. I'm also not really feeling New Amsterdam it was kinda corny but I would give it another try.

Yay for Oprah! Also ANTM is just grating on my nerves... fifty zillion cycles.. lmao. no wonder it's getting less viewers! These women are not going on to become famous models, and I don't see how they can keep coming up with tasks, like 7 or more a season, and it's cycle nine or so?? I tried to watch New Amsterdam on Tuesday, but it was really slow starting off... I'm not really liking it, esp. with the whole crime scene thing. Slows down the whole plot w/Amsterdam looking for love lol

All I know is I watch my beloved Men in Trees and Lost :) I couldn't care less about Oprah's show. I'm just personally sick of all reality shows. Yeah, I loved Real World 20 years ago but ugh, enough already. Although I do watch The Biggest Loser sometimes..hee.

I am not watching ANTM this cycle. It comes on at the same time as Big Brother and I would much prefer to watch BB. Plus it's not like I won't be able to see the season since they play reruns non-stop on MTV.

I always watch America's Next Top Model but I am so sick of Tyra. Maybe everyone else is too????
