Ratings for “The River” dropped a tenth of point over the premiere to a 2.4 with the 18-49 demo.  This suggests that he audience that watched last week returned this week.  Not a great sign.  But better than the alternative.

TERRA NOVA Ratings Down!

“Terra Nova’s” saw a drop in the ratings Monday, scoring a 2.5/6 rating/share with the 18-49 demo. But all of Fox’s ratings were down due to the over-run of a baseball play-off game which delayed ET transmissions of their line-up by almost an hour. So we can’t read too much into these numbers.

TERRA NOVA’s Suprising Ratings Hold!

Fox and Fanboys collectively cringed at the weak opening ratings for “Terra Nova”.  It led many to foresee an even more disastrous second week drop, and an early cancellation.  In fact, that seemed likely.  So imagine everyone’s surprise when the initial overnights showed the ratings holding at the premiere numbers 3.0/8 with the 18-49 demo.   The rating would later be adjusted to up a tenth of a point to a 3.1.  Suddenly the future of “Terra Nova” looks a lot rosier.

TERRA NOVA Ratings Not Bronto-Sized!

Monday night’s premiere of Fox’s Spielberg produced sci-fi extravaganza “Terra Nova” scored a 3.0 rating, and an 8 share, with the 18-49 demo.  This landed it in third place behind CBS and ABC for the night.  This is likely a huge disappointment to Fox who were expected a major score from this expensive show.  The word “flop” is being bandied about.  An early cancellation looks likely.   Proving, once again, the weakness of sci-fi as a genre on the broadcast networks.

THE EVENT Gets Lowest Ratings Yet!

Posted in Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Television with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2011 by ghostradioworld

It doesn’t look like “The Event” will be going out on a high note.  This week’s episode scored an all-time low for the series, racking up a rating of 1.1 with the 18-49 demo.  We’re only two episodes away from  the season (and probably the series) finale.  So it’s unlikely that things will look much rosier in the future.  On the plus side, the series itself has been hugely exciting.  On a healthier network this might have been a hit.  On NBC … need we say more?

Slight Ratings Increase for “THE EVENT”!

Monday’s airing of the latest episode of the sci-fi series “The Event” saw an 18% increase in the ratings, giving the show a 1.3 in the 18-49 demo.  However, a small increase like this is unlikely to keep the show from being cancelled.  Pity.  These last few eps have been thrilling.

Ratings for THE EVENT Drop a Shade!

As “The Event” inches today likely cancellation the Monday airing dropped a tenth of a point to a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demo.  Although it won’t help “The Event” this low consistency is something future programmers need to look at.  Further analysis of the demo is also needed.
