Will NBC Average a 1.0 Adults 18-49 Rating Tonight? - POLL

This is not shaping up to be a proud night for the Peacock Network.

Last night, week-long game show Take It All fell 50% from a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating on Tuesday to a 1.1, showing that its relatively strong launch was entirely a function of having The Voice as a lead-in. NBC's other programs tonight are two low-rated episodes of Up All Night (1.2 A18-49 last week), which have been beaten by CW's The Vampire Diaries multiple times this season and, at 10PM, Rock Center which garnered a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating last week and a 0.9 the week prior.

The question is how low will NBC's ratings go? Last week, with a new episode of its strongest Thursday program, The Office, the network averaged a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

Will tonight be a night that lives in ratings infamy? Make your predictions.

    Actually NBC is airing two new episodes of “Up All Night” from 8 to 9 pm. “30 Rock” does not air tonight.

  • Greg

    There won’t be any 30 Rock tonight, but instead two episodes of Up All Night.

    Up All Night – 1.2
    Take it All – 1.1
    Rock Center – 0.8

    it’s embarrassing this network it’s named the #1 network when there’s all about The voice and footballl really

  • Oliver

    NBC is burning off the last 2 single-camera episodes of Up All Night.

  • James Klatt

    CBS is now the network to watch on Thursday nights.

    CBS has been the network to watch on Thursday nights for most of the past decade.

    At least since 2004 when Friends was still airing.

    @Marcos I think NBC is looking at it more like thank goodness for The Voice and Football. These are not the shows they’re embarrassed about.

    They’d be better off throwing up a random christmas special than show two episodes of UAN so maybe they’re really trying to burn off those episodes. Thursdays are pretty competitive so I expect a disastrous night for NBC. Maybe Take it All will rebound without the concert to use as an excuse.

  • Pepper

    UAN – 1.1
    Take It All – 1.0
    Rock Center – 0.8

    The only NBC program that I find remotely compelling is Days of our Lives. Yeah. A daytime soap. Sad, isn’t it?

  • gerry

    short of a scheduling necessity i can’t see why they’d put up burnoff episodes on a thursday night.. but yeah, i think tonight may be a bleak one for nbc…

  • American

    I enjoyed Take It All Tuesday night, but on Thursday nights I’m going to be watching CBS. NBC is dead on Thursdays now.

  • Ben

    I can’t wait to read the NBC press release for tonight’s results-if there is one. It will really funny to see how the network tries to put a spin on what is probably going to be one of their worst nights of the week.

    Fixed.

    What the hell, I’ll take the under.

    @marcos

    As opposed to FOX being the #1 network for ten years simply because of American Idol?

  • Oliver

    @EatMorePez

    That’s unfair… Fox also benefited from not having the lower-rated 10pm hour dragging their average down.
