TV Ratings: "Big Shots" Hits Series Low
Baseball World Series on FOX continued to rule the prime-time as ABC's freshman drama "Big Shots" lost 55% of the rising "Grey's Anatomy" audience and dipped to a new series low of 8.08 million viewers.
The Dylan McDermott drama has now lost about 30% of its September 27 debut audience when 11.56 million viewers tuned in to sample the new show.
The show actually lost over 2 million viewers as the hour progressed, ending up with a little over 7 million in the final half hour. Needless to say, the show's toast.
"The Office" is still the strongest link in NBC's comedy line-up pulling in almost 9 million viewers. Furthermore, the comedy scores the highest 18-49 rating in NBC's entire Thursday night line-up beating veteran drama "ER" by an entire rating point (4.7 vs. 3.7).
