“The Cape” Ratings Down, “V” Ratings Up!
A mixed week for two of our favorite shows. The third episode of “The Cape” saw a 31% fall to a 1.8 rating with adults 18-49. While “V” had a modest recovery, up 5%, lifting it to important 2.0 ratings threshold with adults 18-49. Neither show is at immediate cancellation risk. But both are hovering on the bubble.
We’re sad that “The Cape” was given a Monday slot. Its strong family appeal made it a perfect fit for Sunday. But we’re glad to see how the story is developing on “V”. It’s really beginning to live up to its promise. Still not at the level of Kenneth Johnson‘s original mini-series. But it’s getting there. Definitely getting there.
