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.

    Saw the advert. for this show last night while watching Castle (the only ABC show I tune in for anymore)

    WOW: They have officially run out of ideas haven’t they. Sink all way.

  • Jane

    Unknown “celebrities” diving = flop (pun intended).

  • rob60990

    They only showed 6 promos dung DWTS. Ridiculous. Hope it bombs. This should have been saved for a summer show.

  • cimmer

    1.2. Really, watching celebrities jump into the water? What’s next, watching celebrities watch paint dry?

  • David

    The ratings didn’t plummet it in the UK. It was the network’s biggest new entertainment format on 5 years.

  • Gene

    How are they going to make a show of people jumping in a pool for 42 minutes?

  • Bazza

    We had this show in the UK and it was terrible but did ok in viewers

  • NBC Fan

    DWTS Special-1.6
    Body of Proof-1.3

    Golden Boy-1.6

    Hell’s Kitchen-2.1
    New Girl-2.3
    The Mindy Project-1.7

    Betty White’s Off Their Rockers-1.2
    Go On-1.1
    The New Normal-0.8

  • Stuart Pitt

    The stars performing a belly flop would be appropriate.

  • Oliver

    I hope it bombs.

    I don’t have enough faith in America that I think it will.

  • BG


  • Melanie


  • Kyle

    The Promos actually looked HILARIOUS! I would watch just for the laughter!

    But predicting a 2.1. Then it goes between 1.5-1.8 for the rest of the season.

  • Rob

    4.5. Theres so much hype for it.

  • LynTX

    Don’t see the draw for a show like this. Flop……

  • Joe A

    SINK!!!!!! 1.5 or lower!

  • HalCapone

    I would only watch it if they forgot to put water in the pool and renamed it “Splat”. No idea how it will perform. There is the curiosity factor for the first episode. I really don’t believe ABC has renewal hopes riding on this one–it is more or less Spring filler.

  • Hillbilly

    No Chuy = a flop. 1.5

  • John A

    Hope that it gets a 3.0 just to annoy people. But ill go with 1.5.
