Primetime Ratings, Saturday, 8/3/13 & Sunday, 8/4/13

WrestleMania XXIX

CBS got the duke on Saturday, while NBC prevailed on Sunday.

On Saturday, 'Zero Hour' went out not with a bang, but a whimper for ABC. The penultimate episode and the series finale both drew 0.3 demos, down from last week's 0.4. The latest burn-off episode of NBC's 'Do No Harm' matched last week's 0.4. The WWE's 'WrestleMania: The World Television Premiere' dipped considerably from last year's special of the same name.

As for Sunday, NBC's broadcast of NFL Preseason Football topped last year's inaugural preseason game by 10%. 'Big Brother' dropped a tenth for CBS. 'Unforgettable' failed to improve at all on last week's disappointing premiere number, which has to have CBS questioning their judgment in bringing it back. The season premiere of ABC's 'Secret Millionaire' dropped a sharp 20% from last year's debut. This easily stands as its lowest rated premiere to date. 'Whodunnit' tied last week's series low.

Bad_Subject is correct. I actually procured the above photo from NBC's official press site for the special.

JAGUARDOG: NBC showcased highlights from the entire Wrestlemania 29 event on August 3--including CM Punk vs The Undertaker. After all, the WWE Championship match between John Cena and The Rock was only twenty-four minutes long.

OK,  I understand now however since they only showed 1 match from Wrestlemania on NBC which was The Rock vs John Cena it might be more appropiate to have a photo of them instead?

I have a question for you concerning this photo for the story.  First off since the Ratings dint'n also include Monday why are you showing a wrestling photo.  You might want to consided attaching a photo of one of the Saturday or Sunday shows.

 

Also just so you know that photo is from Wrestlemania 29, 7 April 2013 and CM Punk lost to the Undertaker.
