TV Ratings: FOX's "Drive" Bombs
The series premiere of FOX's new action series "Drive" starring Nathan Fillion (pictured above) was DOA with 6,05 million viewers who tuned in to see the 2-hour pilot. The drama opened at 8pm with 6,41 million losing almost a million viewers by the end.
"Desperate Housewives" was the 9 p.m. winner as well as the most watched telecast in America last night. The show however pulled in only 16,12 million viewers, that's about 4 million less than the audience for the Carol Burnett episode that aired one year ago.
"Brothers & Sisters" was watched by 11,49 million people. The competing "Without a Trace" on CBS scored 14,31 million viewers, but once again the ABC drama was superior in the crucial 18-49 demo (4.5 vs. 3.5).
"The Apprentice" is down to the final two, but the once red-hot reality show failed to generate any excitement - week #13 was seen by 6,38 million viewers, that's a 21% decline over its lead-in - a repeat of "Deal or no Deal". You should be fired, Mr. Trump. That's a disaster.
