TV Ratings: "Idol" Ignites "Death"
"American Idol" results show on Wednesday night helped FOX's freshman sitcom "Till Death" reach a new series high with 14,65 million viewers. Could we be looking at a new "House"-style phenomenon?
When the comedy premiered last fall paired with that "Happy Hour" stinker FOX was brazen enough to put on air it averaged 5-6 million viewers. Now with improved writing and a powerhouse lead-in, the sitcom grew over 600,000 viewers week-to-week.
Elsewhere, a truly outstanding episode of ABC's "LOST" once again fell to a new all-time low of 11,97 million viewers. Someone at the network needs to be fired for ruining this great drama's ratings.
"Friday Night Lights" continues to struggle with 5,46 million viewers (still a 330K bump); Crossing Jordan plummets to 6,13 million (the axe sharpens); and CSI: NY topped LOST in total viewers, but the John Locke Story was superior in the crucial 18-49 demo with a 20% advantage and #1 place in the timeslot. Perhaps the ratings of "LOST" are not as bad as they seem.
