TV Ratings: "Pushing Daisies" Wins Demo (10/10/07)
ABC's "Private Practice" held steady in week #3 pulling in over 12 million viewers and winning its timeslot in the 18-49 demo. Lead-in "Pushing Daisies" however lost almost 3 million viewers who tuned in last Wednesday to check out what all the buzz was about posting a little over 10 million viewers.
The good news for "Pushing Daisies" is that the show won the timeslot in the important 18-49 demo.
Although CBS' "Criminal Minds" won the 9pm timeslot in total viewers, NBC's "The Bionic Woman" actually matched CM in the 18-49 demo.
My favorite show on television, "Dirty Sexy Money," lost about 900,000 viewers week to week, but only 15% of the audience that tuned into the pilot.
The show's 18-49 numbers however remain almost intact (3.4). DSM is also doing much better than its 2006 predecessor "The Nine" (which averaged 7-8 million viewers out of "LOST's" 16-18 million). Also, its retention out of PP is over 70% - which is higher than "Brothers & Sisters" out of "Desperate Housewives" last year.
I sure know how to spin the numbers if I love the show, don't I?
