Fox Rookie’s ‘New Girl,’ ‘The X Factor’ Have Smaller Week 2 Ratings Declines Than Other Nets

From week one to week two of the new broadcast season, Fox’s rookie shows have seen the smallest week to week adults 18-49 ratings declines of any other newcomers.

But, as a wise PR Jedi notes, the third week ratings for a rookie show are key. Week 2 declines are a given, but a show that stabilizes in week 3 can be around for the long haul, those that continue to decline in week 3 are often not long for the air.

via Fox press note:

New Shows — Week 1 vs. Week 2 declines for Adults 18-49 ratings

And I’m in before a clever commenter notes that by putting this out today, week to week comparisons of Terra Nova are avoided.😉
