Scoreboard for Thurs, Jan. 24, 2008 CBS FOX NBC ABC CW
Total Viewers (million) 11.21 10.32 7.59 7.04 1.98
rating/Share: Adults 18-49 2.6/7 3.2/9 3.1/8 2.4/7 0.7/2

CBS won total viewers for the night with a line-up of repeats and FOX came in second overall and 1st in the 18-49 demo with two hours worth of Are You Smarter than a 5th grader?   A Thursday night, in January, in primetime -- and no show at all could muster even 13.5 million viewers!   I wish there was a SAD network (and it wouldn't stand for Some Awesome Dramas) to beat up on, but at least I have CW, ABC, NBC and CBS.

Chuck fans were probably delighted that NBC aired two hours worth of the show.  However, they were also the last two original episodes and worse still..the ratings.  At 10pm, Chuck couldn't manage more than 7.02 million viewers,  losing almost 2 million viewers out of Celebrity Apprentice.  Not good.   Chuck fans looking for a silver lining: at least it won the 18-49 demo during the 10pm slot.

    WOW ! ! ! This is not the THURSDAY that I remember from just a few months ago. Are we sure that this is still one of the seven days of the week. NBC might be better off with a block consisting of Seinfeld, Cheers, Wings and Taxi.

    IF ABC ADVERTISE BIG SHOTS, THEN IT WOULD HAVE MORE CHANCE ON GETTING GOOD RATINGS. HOW COULD YOU NOT WATCH THIS SHOW? IT'S VERY FUNNY AND YOU KNOW, IT'S GOOD TO HAVE SOME KIND OF LAUGHTER BEFORE YOU GO TO SLEEP THAN GET STRESSED FROM THOSE MEDICAL-CRIME-NEVERENDING CRAP!

    It makes me sick that ABC has never given Big Shots the attention it so richly deserves. Last night's episode was the best yet, and this show deserves better promotion.

    Shame on ABC. No advertising for clearly one of their best shows. Give Big Shots the limelight it deserves. Must be a bunch of GED graduates working their marketing campaigns. Clearly no smart moves being made.
