Well since many of us are hoping for an earlier then announced start to season 12 (with of course the hopes for a season 13 this year as well).
I thought I would start to post the ratings (success and failure
)of CBS programming to see if we have any real reason for hope).
Yesterday saw the premiere of Kid Nation. A show which has had a ton of media exposure.
Its offical ratings (these are final numbers and not fast nationals) were:
- 9.382 million viewers
- 6.0/10 HH
- 3.1/9 A18-49
For those who don't follow ratings. This is a a decrease from last years show (jericho) whch opened with 11.6 million viewers and a 3.4 in adults/demo.
Media anaylist consider it a modest opening. And disappointing when you consider that 1, it was heavily promoted and had a lot of media coverage. And 2, that it opened with ABC and NBC were running reruns still.
It will be curious to see how it performs next week when all 5 networks will be running originals.
To compare it to Amazing Race's two seasons last year. It scored higher then 4 episodes (all of them All Star episodes).
I will update with stats for all the new shows and just general posts concerning the strength of the rest of its line up.
