Early Jericho Numbers: Not Good News, But..

Lennie James as Robert Hawkins on Jericho...we weren't expecting any at this point, were we?  I'm sad to say I wasn't, but I'm sorry the news isn't better. 

Jericho did a 3.3/6 (household rating/share) in the early overnight numbers.  Things got a little worse than last week.  I have no idea whether that plays into which episode CBS airs on 3/25 or not at all.  It was better than Big Brother's 3.2/5, but a lot worse than the repeat of NCIS which did a 6.9/11.

Viewer numbers and the 18-49 demo will be posted in the normal overnight ratings post. 

 
  • NCIS Triple???

    Guess Who how is 10 triple of 6?

    NCIS has no lead-ins because all they have is repeats. I'm sure, like clockwork, they'll have yet another repeat next week because like all shows of the kind, they have nothing original to offer.

    WEll, there are also a lot of military families that don't see this as some kind of reenactment. If they are they are missing the point. Not to mention there have been many people from the military posting on CBS that adore the show.

    No, we did not expect ratings to change second to the last show. But they have been pretty constant.

    And to the person saying “you blame the lead in NOW” most of us have blamed the lead in at least partially all along. I don't know if you realize the kind of ire that even MENTIONING Big Brother creates in folks.

    But whatever, those who like it do and those who want to bash do and ne'er the twain shall meet.

    I happen to think there is room for one intelligent show, and let the rest watch the rest of the slock out there. I guess no matter what, we have our dvds. I personally hope they show the cliffhanger regardless because the end makes no one happy and by all reports its amazing.

    It's ok, Danielle. Guess Who can't distinguish what's real and what's not like some of us can. Guess Who, if the only criticism that you can spew at us is the fact that Jericho parallels Iraq and that's why people aren't tuning in, you need to get some new material. I can appreciate the realism that Jericho offers every week, but when I turn off the television, I turn it off, it doesn't bleed into what's going on in Iraq because it ISN'T Iraq. Get over it.

    Jericho is still gaining from Big Brother, but yes, Big Brother has indirectly hurt Jericho. BB fans are protesting the show over certain houseguests words and actions, “leaked rigging” and the down right smuttiness of the season (this has been going on since the show started!). One of the first incidents even caused Lowe's to drop their advertising.

    If BB & Jericho had switched timeslots, we'd still see low numbers for BB but I venture to say there would be a nice spike in viewership for Jericho.

    10pm is the death slot for CBS.

    What they need to do is Put Jericho on Friday nights after Ghost Whisperer and move Numb3rs either before or after Big Brother. At this point, it's too late because there's only one episode left, but the fact that they refused to even TRY to do that just proves, even though they'd like to state otherwise, that they don't know what they're doing because when you strip all the numbers in the world away, it's a big guessing game and nothing more than that.

    My wife and a friend have worked on the show for both seasons, when i found out that CBS was placing the show tuesday night 10:00 I knew we where going to be in trouble, i am a wake up at 3:30am to go to work and they where going to kill a good show. But remember critics that this is a 7 episode season, not a whole lot of time to tell a story like in season 1. Plus CBS did not want to bring back the show, so blame them for setting it up to fail…THANK YOU CBS
