41st Annual Country Music Wins Viewers and 18-49 Demo for ABC

Scoreboard for Wednesday Nov 7 ABC CBS FOX NBC CW
Total Viewers (million) 15.93 11.52 6.40 6.32 3.79
rating/Share: Adults 18-49 5.4/14 3.1/8 2.6/7 2.5/7 1.8/5

ABC won the night with the CMAs pulling in almost 16 million and a zesty 5.4/14 in the 18-49 demo.  CBS's Criminal Minds continues to be strong though Kid Nation still isn't.  While NBC's Bionic Woman had a few more viewers than Kitchen Nightmares over on Fox, Chef Gordon Ramsey put the Smackdown on Jamie Sommers when it came to the 18-49 demo.   I would like to see the reality show were Chef Ramsey berates the producers of Bionic Woman for screwing up. "You're a stupid <bleeping> donkey!  It's supposed to be entertainment!" 

Sorry for the rant.  As for our friend Gossip Girlwell, they'll always love you on the web.  On to the show data:

    Bionic Woman is dropping like a stone. Its previous episode average viewership was 7.81m (10/24). That 6.44m is another drop of 17%. Hard to believe its first episode was seen by 13.91m.

    On the other hand Life is up 10% from the week previous (on overall) and 25% on 18-49, even with the lousy lead-in. Unfortunately, heard they are stopping production almost immediately, even though they have at least 2 un-shot scripts in hand! Why in the world would they sit on these when they have an audience that is actually GROWING?!?

    Life is my favorite show on television. I also liked the latest episode of Journeyman, which gets better with each episode. Now I'm hoping at least Moonlight will stay on. I would hate to lose my top three! :(
