"Survivor: Guatemala," 10.2/16, easily won the 8 p.m. hour for CBS. A repeat of "Dancing with the Stars: Dance-off" put ABC in second with a 5.7/9, just ahead of the hour-long premiere of "Joey," 5.6/9, on NBC. "Everybody Hates Chris" posted a 4.6/7 for UPN (and virtually tied "Joey" in total viewers), but its lead-out, "Love, Inc.," dropped to 2.9/5, giving UPN a 3.8/6 for the hour and fifth place behind FOX and "The O.C." The WB repeated last season's "Smallville" finale.

Anytime Joey is tied with a UPN sitcom, that tells me everything I already know, that this is Joey's last season-lol

Now taking bets- when will Joey be cancelled? If "My Name Is Earl" hold up in week 2, it might be gone quicker than you think. "Chris" actually beat "Joey" in viewers, 7.58 million to 7.57 as well as in adults, 3.2 to 3.0 rating.

NBC wont cancell it at least until this seasons done. "Joey" will do better in ratings in the future because of "Will & Grace" being after it.

How can a show benefit from a TV show that comes on AFTER that show go off? I can see if you said if Will and Grace aired BEFORE Joey but the fact that it's after show mean didley poo-lol

EveryBody Hates Chris is not your average UPN sitcom. It's not like One on One or Girlfriends. Because it has Chris Rock involved, it has more universal appeal. We'll see how both shows hold up in the long run.

Well I watched EHC and it gives off a Ghetto Vibe just like most of the UPN shows. Love,INC wasn't Ghetto, which aired on UPN after EHC

You guys- it is not definate that Joey is getting canceled. NBC has horrible ratings all across the board recently. Other then for a few shows, like ER, its ratings have sucked. It is not a good idea for NBC to just dump Joey, because whatever they replace it with will most likely have even worse ratings. I will bet any of you that My Name is Earl has horrible ratings in less then a month flat. NBC would be stupid to get rid of Joey because, quite frankly, they have nothing better to put on the air. Their ratings would just go down the toilet even further.

We are not saying that NBC will cancel Joey Now, we are just saying that it's a very strong possiblity that Joey will not have a 3rd season

EHC might have a ghetto vibe, but Chris Rock gives it more universal appeal to a broader audience. We'll see how both shows do in its second week.

Well, I just hope NBC isn't stupid enough to cancel it. It has fairly good ratings compared to other NBC shows. I guess what I'm saying is that until NBC has a bunch of great new shows with excellent ratings that are far better then what Joey is getting, then they would be foolish to cancel it.

I mean, look at the Martha Stewart Apprentice. That shows ratings were way worse then Joey, so I would guess that show would get the axe way before Joey would.

And, I think they would probably move the show to Tuesdays before giving it the final boot.

I just wish that I was in charge of NBC programing. Who ever is in charge now needs to be fired because clearly they are doing something wrong. I just don't understand how a network could go from number one to last place just because one show (Friends) ended.

Because maybe somtimes people tune in early, and then realize that "Joey" is a great show so then the start watching it every week.

That's the problem- it's really hard for a show like "Joey" to make a comeback. Why? People already know it's on (alot sampled it last year when it premiered). It's not like people don't know it's on, it's that they've already decided they're not going to watch it. It's very rare that a show in this position comes back.

About the ratings, even compared to NBC on the whole, they're terrible. There's no justifying them at all. NBC's gone from a position of total dominance on Thursdays to having it being they're fourth lowest rated night (that's right, Monday, Tuesday AND Wednesday all drew better ratings than Thursday so far this week). NBC is going to have to dramatically remake this night, and soon.

Well, to alter the Thursday night lineup now is utterly ridiculous. NBC have what they have and now have to hope for the best. NBC has no one to blame for themselves for this fall from grace.

NBC shouldn't have cancelled Friends because it's all going downhill from here.

While I don't think NBC will cancel the show next week if the ratings don't improve, I can't see "Joey" making it to a third season if things continue to slide.

I never watch UPN sitcoms but I gave EHC a try and I actually liked it and I'm not even a Chris Rock fan.

Joey's ratings weren't that bad. Just because the UPN show is doing really good doesn't mean Joey wasn't better then alot of things. What gets me is a repeat of dancing with the stars did really good.

I don't see them cancelling in the middle of the season. Do they really have anything better to put on.
