The most talked about change to Thursday night's this season has been the move of CBS ratings heavyweightto 8pm. But that's not the only change. There are 3 series premieres (My Generation, $#*! , ), and ten season premieres ( 's , , , , The , , , The , , ).
How will they do in the ratings?
The general trend so far for returning shows has been to debut up a bit from their May, 2010 ratings level, but not close to their Fall, 2009 premiere ratings. I expect that ratings pattern will hold for Fox although everything at 8pm could be in danger because of the unpredictability of the CBS audience. I'd expect a weak My Generation to hurt
My guesses (adults 18-49 ratings):
- : 2.8
- My Generation: 2.3
- : 4.8
- : 2.2
- S#*! : 3.9
- : 2.3
- 's : 4.2
- : 3.4
- The 3.8
- : 2.3
- : 2.9
- The : 3.6
- : 3.1
