I was going to try to cram this into the overnight post, but that just makes people scroll more to find the overnight data. But I found the comparisons for the same night year over year pretty interesting. Here are some highlights (all compare last night to what was on Wednesday, October 1, 2008)
FOX improved a lot on the night, largely because's 3.2 adults 18-49 was nearly 100% greater than 1 hour of Til Death a year ago (1.7, 1.5).
and its 2.7 were not as strong as and its 3.1 one year ago, however, SYTYCD was stronger with the 18-34 crowd (2.9 vs. 2.4)
Before you go getting too attached to Eastwick, last night's 2.5/7 was less than Dirty Sexy Money's 2.7/7 the year before, however that was DSM's season premiere.
The combo of Hank (2.2) and(2.5) were better than the premiere of Pushing Daisies a year earlier (2.1).
How bad was it for NBC?
- Knight Rider (2.5) > Mercy (2.1)
- America's Got Talent (3.3) > L&O: (2.5) (AGT ran later last year)
- Lipstick Jungle (2.1) > The Jay Leno Show (1.9)
