Default Ratings down AGAIN.....why?

Here it is from tv.zap2it
ABC won at 8 p.m. with the 11.9/18 for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," which ate into the audience for CBS' "Cold Case," knocking the procedural drama to an 11.4/17, down dramatically in its second half-hour. FOX was third with "The Simpsons" "Treehouse of Horrors" episode (6.2/9) and the slightly improved launch for "Arrested Development" (4.6/7), which combined to put NBC's "American Dreams" into fourth. The first hour of "Fellowship of the Ring" did a 2.9/4 on The WB.

All I know is last week I slept really good. We had climbed back up to 7 million viewers. I thought the bottom had been reached and we were set for a huge rebound.

All I know now is we got somewhere between 4 and 7 million. I don't know where. I don't want to guess.
Does anyone know how to get the numbers?

Peace.

American Dreams is the first really good/wholsome show we have had on Sunday nights since the likes of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color and Bonanza.

Maybe too many people just cannot deal with "innocent" TV anymore.

Here are the fast affiliate ratings from Mediaweek, which are different from the Zap2it fast nationals:

Quote:
On NBC, it's obvious at this point that drama American Dreams (#4: 5.6/ 8; A18-49: #4, 2.4/ 5) will never find a large audience, while part one of theatrical, The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, on the WB averaged a modest 3.8/ 5 in the overnights, 4.41 million viewers and a 1.7/ 4 among adults 18-49 from 8-10 p.m.
Going back a few weeks with Mediaweek's ratings:

November 7th - 5.6/8; A18-49: 2.4/5
October 31st - 5.3/8; A18-49: 2.4/6
October 24th - 4.2/6; A18-49: 2.2/5
October 17th - 5.1/7; A18-49: 2.1/5

So, it looks like we have hit our best fast affiliates rating in a month. I realize these numbers mean very little so, straight from NBC, here are the total viewership numbers for the third season to date, starting with the season premiere:

Quote:
VIEWERS - DATE

8,700,000 - September 26th
7,500,000 - October 3rd
7,000,000 - October 10th
6,400,000 - October 17th
6,600,000 - October 24th
7,000,000 - October 31st
7,600,000 - November 7th
Last night's numbers will be revised tomorrow and may go up or down, but for the other weeks, the numbers shown are the "in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research."

NBC was pleased with how it did, this is from NBC's ratings release this morning.

Quote:
At 9 p.m. ET last night, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (4.2/9 in 18-49, 11.5 million viewers overall) built on its 18-49 lead-in by 68 percent to match its highest rating in four weeks.

At 8 p.m. ET, "American Dreams" (2.5/6 in 18-49, 7.6 million viewers overall) improved on its 18-49 lead-in by 9 percent to hit its highest 18-49 numbers and largest total viewership since premiere week.

From 7-8 p.m. ET, "Dateline NBC" (2.3/6 in 18-49, 8.0 million viewers overall) matched its highest Sunday 18-49 rating since May 23. In total viewers, it was the most-watched Sunday "Dateline" since Oct. 3.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for Sunday night are: ABC 7.4/18; CBS, 4.3/10; NBC, 3.6/8; Fox, 3.5/8; WB, 1.5 /4. Among total viewers, preliminary Nov. 7 averages are: ABC, 17.6 million; CBS, 15.8 million; NBC, 10.3 million; Fox, 7.5 million; WB, 3.9 million.

It's great to know the "quick" numbers can be misleading..........I'm sleeping this Sunday!
So we didn't go below 6 million, which I feared............WHEEEEEEEEEEEW!

Peace.

As far as "wholesome" shows.......I have one for you.
How about "My Three Sons"?

I just LOVE that show. That would be a great show to bring back......or sell on dvd.

Anyone know if it's on sale on dvd?

Peace.

Ya gotta luv the "Beev"......huh?

Bonanza was a western. Filmed near Lake Tahoe. It had Ben Cartwright, Little Joe, Hoss, Candy, Hop Sing and assorted other cowboy types.

Is probably considered a classic. You can visit the silver country up in that area and see Bonanza memorabilia. It is worth seeing on a trip to the Lake Tahoe area.
Great scenery of that area on the tv shows of Bonanza.

Peace.

Oh yeah, Leave It To Beaver...

Many don't care for that show as they say it was just so unrealisitic... Perhaps, but I loved that one too. As a matter of fact, the Cleaver house has new residents.

Look no further then Desperate Housewives on KABC Sunday nights. The home of the narrator of the show, a woman who "done herself in" is none other then the Beaver's house, and also the former residence of Marcus Welby M.D....

That whole street is on the Universal Backlot and has more history then you can shake a stick at.

And unfortunately regarding Bonanza, The Ponderosa Ranch in Incline Village Nevada was closed a month or two back and the property was sold to I think some rich guy who plans to build his home on the land. So no more visits to the Ponderosa by the public..

Bummer...

No more Ponderosa?

Unbelievable! I guess anything can be bought.

Glad I got to see it before that.

Peace.

Guys, I have a feeling that tonight's episode (Nov. 14) isn't going to have a large audience. As of this morning, NBC still plans to air the show, despite the AMAs airing tonight.

I was lucky enough to visit the Ponderosa also.... I won't tell you how long ago though...

I even got one of those fake newspapers printed up with a headline that said:

Trish to star in Bonanza

Heh heh, corny but I love it.

As for the AMA's, it appears that American Dreams will always face a newer, "hipper" challenge.
