Splash cast

Tonight the reality series Splash premieres on ABC. The premise is simple: celebrities attempt to perform Olympic style dives. The format is a hit internationally, but FOX's similar Stars in Danger: The High Dive bellyflopped to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating on January 9. Splash's timeslot predecessor Celebrity Wife Swap premiered to a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating on February 26. So how will Splash do? Make your prediction.

    1.9-2.0. i’m not watching but you have to think there’s some odd factor to it.

  • Petar Ivanov

    No idea. I mean how abc promoted this one? If is heavy promoted may be will premiere good and than the voice will take it down.

  • WoWza

    Huge flop and cancelled soon.

  • Silas

    I wouldn’t exactly call it a hit internationally. In the UK it started out OK and plummeted while being widely ridiculed and critically panned. It was on ITV1 so, naturally, it was renewed. :/

  • s0303

    the ratings are going to be about as ugly as their diving…

  • Matt

    This may sound superbly optimistic, but I’m predicting a 1.8 and 5 million viewers.

    But, it wont be long till it falls to “normal” 1.2’s

  • Samunto

    I think it’ll do modestly. I say 2.0

    Yes in the UK it was described as “it’s so bad that i have to keep watching”!

  • Zoniako

    I would guess it goes to a 2.1-2.2. BTW this is gonna premiere here in Portugal during this Summer.

  • SJ

    ABC deserves the lowest possible rating for picking up this pile of garbage. 1.2, cancelled after three episodes.

  • CBSviewer

    1.0-1.2 ! It will sink !
    I watched the French, Bristish and German version of ‘Splash’ and it sucks !

  • gerry

    1.7 – 1.8, and they will take a DIVE next week! (I’m so punny!)

  • Shepherd

    I see Louie Andersen, and I think Danny DeVito; I hope nobody gets hurt. I don’t think any of these names are very big with the younger demographic though. I’ll say <1.5

  • BigBrotherFan

    Who gives a S@IT?


  • DenverDean

    Sink – it’s opposite ALL NEW episodes on every network. (Not to mention the premise is just dumb.)

  • psychic

    That one guy looks like Wilson from House. If it is, it’ll certainly be hilarious to watch him diving after eight seasons of “you’re an ass”.

  • charmedcraft

    I love the diving on the Olympics; I have to watch this. Of course it’s no Olympics but it’s going to be entertaining to watch all the belly flops.

  • Peter


  • psychic

    Damn. It’s not that guy.
    Actually, it’s Drake Bell.

  • David Howell

    Fox sacrificed a Tuesday to make sure this was dead. It might have been their best Tuesday of the season.

    1.4 premiere and at CW numbers by series end.

  • Lonesome Rhodes

    I wish they’d aired it at the same time as Smash.
