 CW Out of the Cellar Again with Smackdown

Scoreboard for Friday Nov 2 CBS ABC NBC CW FOX
Total Viewers (million) 8.65 7.59 7.41 4.64 2.31
rating/Share: Adults 18-49 2.3/7 1.8/6 1.9/6 1.4/5 1.0/3

That Fox's The Next Great American Band sucks, is great news for The CW.  Moonlight fans, I worry that there may be a reporting error with Berman's #s.  It shows a drop of about a million viewers from last week while Women's Murder Club gained a few viewers over last week.  But if the numbers are right everyone who tuned out was over 49 because Moonlight still won the hour as far as the 18-49 demo and CBS won the night both in viewers and in the demo.   I'll follow up on Moonlight's ratings on Tuesday when we get the weekly results directly from Nielsen, if not sooner.

On to the shows:

Time Network Show Viewers (Millons) 18-49 Rating/Share
         
8:00 NBC Deal or No Deal 9.3 2.0/7
  CBS Ghost Whisperer 9.13 2.5/9
  ABC Men in Trees 5.87 1.5/5
  CW Friday Night Smackdown 4.64 1.4/5
  FOX The Next Great American Band 2.31 1.0/3
         
9:00 ABC Womens Murder Club 9.47 1.9/6
  CBS Moonlight 7.57 2.1/7
  NBC Friday Night Lights 5.45 1.8/5
         
10:00 CBS Numb3rs 9.24 2.3/7
  NBC Las Vegas 7.41 2.1/6
  ABC 20/20 7.41 2.0/6

    “Fox’s The Next Great American Band sucks”. Indeed.

    However, if the writers strike lasts past the holidays, you might see the top 3 shows for Friday’s being Smackdown, American Band and 20/20 by January.

    If the writer's strike lasts long, I'll not be watching the networks at all – it'll be movie night. If CBS cancels “Moonlight” the only show I'll tune in for on CBS is “Ghost Whisperer” just like before “Moonlight” came along.

    If there was an error in the numbers, I hope CBS realizes that.

    Moonlight is awesome.

    I confess I have yet to watch Moonlight (though I did watch 60 episodes of House in the last few weeks).

    But it's obvious to me that Moonlight has something special going for it. To have built such a loyal and dedicated following of awesome fans after only a few episodes is a prety amazing accomplishment.

    Personally I'm a huge Blood Ties fan. This show is smart, witty, and has a large cult following. It's a shame Lifetime doesn't do a better job marketing this show. With it's odd time slot it's hard to attract new viewers.

    I don't think the Next Great American Band sucks. The problem is, the viewers who WOULD be watching it are out on Friday nights – in many cases watching bands perform LIVE in clubs. I think this show would actually be really successful on just about any night. Someone in the FOX office had their head up their ass when they chose the night for this show. I saw it on Friday night and thought it was pretty good. Stupid choice for a night is really the only problem in my opinion.
