 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

    I dearly love Moonlighting. It is a clever way of taking a negative and giving it a positive story line. I parallel it to Bram Stoker's Dracula.

    Correction: I should say I dearly love Moonlight. Must be having flashbacks!

    Moonlight is the only show I absolutely look forward to anymore – not since Blind Justice has there been anything that has asked for nor kept my loyalty as a television viewer. I only hope that CBS will stand behind this unique offering and give it a fighting chance to find its feet. It is a unique and entertaining take on a very old subject. In this case, old has never looked better!

    Moonlight is a well-written program with just the right amount of drama, romance, sprinkled with a bit of humor. It is a great way to end the work week. I hope the network keeps this program on the air – regardless of the writers strike. I rather see these episodes rerun than watch something else!

  • Debbie

    Moonlight is why I watch TV on Fridays. I look forward to it all week. I hope CBS gives it a chance to find it's viewers.

    Moonlight is now my favorite show — I cannot wait to see each episode, and I rewatch all week. Just simply addictive!

    So is there an update on the ratings yet? I sure hope it was just an error.

    Sadly, it wasn't an error. In the LIVE plus Same Day DVR usage weekly numbers, Nielsen reported 7.553 million viewers for Moonlight on 11/2.

    It appears the 8+ million number from the prior week was just a brief surge.

    Moonlight is quite simply the best show on television today….network or cable. It deserves to be renewed, with or without the WGA strike. If CBS cancels ML, I will stop watching CBS. If the networks begin airing “Reality” television, I will stop watching television altogther. I will spend my evenings surfing the Web on my computer and replaying my Moonlight downloads. That's a promise!
