Ratings (Monday, 2/26/08)
A remake of "A Raisin in the Sun" starring P.Diddy (or whatever his name is these days) scores for ABC, while "Terminator" hits a new series low. Plus, did "Moment of Truth" remain a blazing success without its "American Idol" lead-in? Monday's ratings, a click away.
Ironically, although "Terminator" was regularly exceeding "Prison Break's" figures, now that the Panama-based drama has finished its third season, "Terminator" has lost a considerable chunk of its audience hitting a very dangerous series-low.
Meanwhile, the show's hideous lead-in "The Moment of Truth," which has been running out of steam since its headline-grabbing debut performance, did reasonably well pulling in 8.59 million viewers, but nowhere near its 23+ million debut.
Over on CBS, it is now clear "Welcome to the Captain" is a bomb and should not make it onto the network's 2008/2009 schedule.
