NBC's "Heroes" Continues Descent
There is no doubt NBC's "Heroes" hit season-low on Monday night with 9.68 million viewers. I believe, however, this may have been the sci-fi drama's worst performance since it debuted in September 2006.
Meanwhile, CBS's freshman comedy "The Big Bang Theory" hit series high (9.68 million) besting its premiere on September 24 (9.54 million).
FOX's two-hour "Prison Break" was also a success hitting a new season high of 7.84 million viewers. In the final half-hour the show exceeded 8 million viewers.
NBC's "Journeyman" is dying a slow death in the post-Heroes timeslot, hitting yet another series low of 5.25 million viewers this week.
The CW's freshman comedy "Aliens in America" also plummeted to its lowest numbers ever, scoring only 1.78 million viewers. I guess some of those "Chris" viewers would rather flip over to "Big Bang" on CBS.
ABC's scheduling antics made it almost impossible to tell how well its line-up did. "Dancing with the Stars" was undoubtedly the top show of the evening with about 21 million viewers tuning in.
