Though tvbythenumbers commenters had a mixed response to CBS's new summer reality series Dogs In the City, which garnered a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, matching the performance of a repeat of The Middle in the time period. CBS seems to think it deserves a tummy rub and a rawhide bone. In addition to the usual press release that put a positive spin on the premiere numbers, the network sent out a canine pun-filled announcement about the show's rebroadcast this Sunday, June 3:
MAN'S BEST FRIEND GETS A SUNDAY TREAT
Premiere of "Dogs in the City" to be Rebroadcast Sunday, 8:00-9:00 PM
CBS will rebroadcast the premiere of DOGS IN THE CITY on Sunday, June 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
Last night's premiere fetched 6.7 million viewers, placing first in its time period and second in key demographics.
Someone at CBS really loves dogs. Notably, Dogs In the City is executive produced by CSI executive producer Carol Mendohlson.
We would love to pitch CBS our own animal reality series, Grin and Bear It, starring the one and only Cancellation Bear.
