Ratings (Tuesday, 2/27/08)
MySpace.com originated series "Quarterlife" may be the biggest Big Three bomb of the season, premiering with an embarrassing 3.86 million viewers. Meanwhile, FOX's old-fashioned sitcom "Back to You" scores a season-high.
The Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton-fronted comedy scored 12.33 million viewers, coming out as the second highest rated telecast of the evening. The show however lost almost 60% of the audience that tuned into "American Idol."
ABC's "According to Jim" which, in a head-scratching move by the network, may be getting a new season, scored only 4.63 million. Will ABC ever have a successful comedy line-up again? Rumor has it, NBC's "Scrubs" will be joining the line-up next year, but that will hardly generate more eyeballs.
