Primetime Ratings, Thursday, 9/19/13

 

The Million Second Quiz

 

CBS won Thursday in all measures. This wouldn't be that impressive of an accomplishment, were it not for the fact that CBS' line-up was 100% re-runs. I'm not sure if that says more about the popularity of 'Big Bang Theory' encores or about how weak the other shows on offer were.

Week two of 'The X-Factor's Thursday edition fell two tenths to a series low of 1.9. That makes four straight poorly rated episodes to begin season three, and probably signals the death knell of any future seasons. Give it up Simon, nobody seems to care about you anymore. The season (and likely series) finale of the heavily hyped, yet barely watched 'Million Second Quiz' eeked upwards to a 1.3. NBC can add another show to its long list of failed experiments. 'Wipeout' accomplished the uncommon feat of actually dropping two tenths for its season finale.

Ummm, ok then. You're certainly entitled to your opinion baconTV, but flawed or not, these numbers are still what the five major broadcast networks primarily rely upon to determine if a show gets renewed or canceled.
