Pawn Stars Shines; Ratings Woes Continue for Damages, Men of a Certain Age

Damages quickly is heading back to its trajectory of last season when it was often averaging less than a million viewers for initial airings of episodes.  It almost made it in its second week with 1.02 million viewers and a .2 (yes, point two) adults 18-49 rating.  That’s down from last week’s season 3 premiere when it averaged 1.43 million and a .3 with adults 18-49.

Meanwhile TNT’s  Men of a Certain Age is languishing down to 2.259 million viewers and a .6 adults 18-49 rating.  That’s down 25% with adults 18-49 from last week’s .8, and while TNT might be focusing more on ratings with adults 25-54, that audience seems to be bailing out on the show, too.

I’m not sure what Monday night’s ratings with adults 25-54 are yet for Men of a Certain Age, but prior to last night the most recent two episodes had gone from a 1.4 with adults 25-54, to a 1.0 last week (and not ranked among the top 50 in that demo among ad supported cable — last week Keeping Up with the Kardashians had more adults 25-54 watching).

Meanwhile History’s Pawn Stars is doing better than Damages + Men of a Certain Age combined!  Both in total audience and easily so with adults 18-49.  Monday night two episodes of Pawn Stars between 10p-11p averaged 3.85 million and a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating and 4.12 million and a 1.6 rating with adults 18-49.

A new CSI: Miami on CBS at 10pm (last week was a repeat) probably didn’t help. Even Pawn Stars was down from last week with adults 18-49.  Last week its best episode averaged over 2.6 million adults 18-49,  Monday night’s best was around 2.1 million.
