    Masterchef FTW!

  • GARebelman

    Wow Masterchef out rated Hells Kitchen in the Demo.

  • Survivor Fan

    This is the First time that MasterChef has beaten HK! Expect to see a lot more of that this summer.

  • GARebelman

    @Survivor Fan – I think the 2 hour Masterchef finale on Tuesday last summer beat the 2 hour Hells Kitchen finale on Monday last summer. But with a huge asterisk. Hells Kitchen was up against fall competition.

  • Survivor Fan

    I should have clairified by saying ‘on the same night’.

  • RJ

    Dang, I didn’t think MasterChef would out-rate Hell’s Kitchen this soon. At least Hell’s Kitchen has already been renewed for two more seasons.

  • Survivor Fan

    On the night of the HK finale last year, it was up against:

    10.7 TAAHM
    7.4 2BG
    4.0 DWTS
    1.9 Sing Off (looks great in spring / summer, but terrible in early fall)

    Love in the Wild did absolutely horrible considering that big lead-in. Couldn’t even break a 2.0. Pathetic.

  • Survivor Fan

    While watching Love in the Wild last night, Jenny McCarthy’s interactions with the contestants, while not nearly as good, reminded me of those of Anderson Cooper on my second favorite show of all time (behind Survivor), The Mole.

  • Survivor Fan

    By the way, I know that these fan things never work, but, ABC, bring The Mole back for a third chance!

    Tuesday Final Averages

  • Joseph

    Looks like “America’s Got Talent” was the only show on broadcast TV to outdraw the NB playoff game on ESPN.

  • JR

    The NBA game got a 4.6 demo though, much better than AGT

    Nick: please stop posting the household ratings in the comments. also, your numbers were wrong.

  • disney rocks

    @robert, where did Nick post household ratings at? I don’t see any?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    I deleted them.

  • Fancy Pants

    Good job MasterChef! If it keeps it up like this it’s a sure renewal

  • JohnnyRico

    I really like Jenny McCarthy as a game show/reality show host and think she will have a long career doing this but LITW is just not my cup of tea and I will probably not watch more then 1 episode I did last night.

  • David Howell

    MasterChef doing the business for Fox. Spring cycle when (not if) Touch is canceled by holiday season?

  • K

    Masterchef did well, because it is a really good show.
