TV Ratings: Monday (May 12, 2008)
ABC's "Samantha Who?" and "The Bachelor" ended their respective seasons last night, Britney Spears hit Barney's sheets again on "How I Met Your Mother," and a new season of "American Gladiators" premiered on NBC. How well did all they do? Monday's ratings, a click away.
Ouch! That's gotta hurt. The 2nd season of NBC's "American Gladiators" redux opened on a very disappointing note pulling in fewer than 5 million viewers. The trip down memory lane has obviously worn off. Now, if only NBC learned to come up with original ideas. Perhaps they would last longer.
The reappearance of Britney Spears on "How I Met Your Mother" could not lift the show to the same level as her original appearance in March (10.5 million), but the comedy did break the 9 million mark and help score almost 15% more pairs of eyeballs than its lead-in "The Big Bang Theory."
