Well fast nationals for Sunday are out. :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

And Viva did so well, I am just  :lol3: dying.

It did 6.77 million viewers and a 1.2/ 2 among adults 18-49. Comparably, year-ago occupant The Amazing Race 10 averaged 10.89 million viewers and a 3.8/ 9 in the demo.

Thats some awesome scheduling there CBS. (:;) (:;).

To compare to the history of the Amazing Race.  The show has never scored a demo number amoung adults 18-49 that low.  Never, not once in 11 cycles.

This show will be cancelled either this week or next, I am absolutely sure.  Its hurting the whole night.

January for us Capricorns would be the best B-Day present IMO peach  :lol:

Is it true that Capricorns attract eachother :kissy:  I knew there was a reason we did  :-[
I should have known Gman!! Whens your B-Day? I'm the Jan 18th, peach is the 8th.  :hearts:

I'm like LuckyPierre right in the middle between my two favorite gals: Jan. 12th. :hearts:

And I just hope that CBEss doesn't panic and rush TAR12 onto the boards without proper buildup.  Several weeks of teasers on Survivor and other shows would help build a proper audience for those who have heard of but not seen the show .

Breaking news from tvguide

Viva Laughlin has crapped out. After scoring a miniscule 1.2 rating in
viewers 18 to 49 in its time period premiere on Sunday, CBS is getting ready
to pull the plug on its musical drama after only two episodes. An
announcement is expected as soon as Monday afternoon. The Amazing Race is the most likely candidate to take over the 8 p.m. slot on the night. While CBS has new episodes of Jericho ready to go, the network is leaning toward launching it later this season rather then use it as Laughlin replacement. With a writers’ strike possible, the network wants fresh scripted shows at the ready. CBS will also want a few weeks to promote Jericho before its premiere. —Reporting by Stephen Battaglio

If you're like Tim Goodman and believe that the first real cancellation of the season doesn't happen until a scripted show takes a fall, then today is a very special day for you dead pool watchers. We already had our first non-cancellation cancellation with Fox's "Nashville" (which was supposed to return in mid-October and then... didn't), and our first official cancellation with the CW's "Online Nation." But according to a high-placed source at CBS, today brings our first scripted bloodshed of '07-'08, and it's... drumroll...

"Viva Laughlin."

It's not a huge shock. The sneak preview on Thursday lost nearly 60 percent of its "CSI" lead-in audience, and Sunday's timeslot premiere lost about a quarter of the people who watched on Thursday. (And that's on average; the last half-hour of "Viva Laughlin" to ever air was down more than 40 percent from Thursday's first half-hour.) Any way you slice it, it was a ratings fiasco.

Official announcement's coming later today, and the cancellation is effective immediately. A "CSI" repeat will plug the gap this Sunday, and "Amazing Race" will be back Sundays at 8 (or whenever the late football game ends on double-header weeks) starting Nov. 4.
