24 has never been a huge ratings hit. I believe it's highest numbers were in season 5.

7.6 million for the series finale of L&O. How sad.

But unlike other serialized dramas 24's ratings have never significantly eroded over time. It's maintained a steady range of 9mil-12 from start to finish, unlike that sharp declines most other serialized dramas experience.

Although the story lines of 24 are getting repetitive, I really question FOX's decision to dump the series. Do they really think they're going to replace it with a 9M-12M series?

From what I've heard it's CRAZY expensive to produce. Without knowing jack (no pun intended) about how the business actually works, I assume they're thinking they can slap a show together for like half the cost and if it does half the numbers then they should be good. By the way, I made up the half numbers/half cost analogy as I don't know if the math actually works out like that. Basically put out a cheaper show and it won't have to do 9 million to make money.

Then again, that was NBC's plan with Leno and it backfired.

The final performances of the season on "American Idol" carried FOX to a ratings win Tuesday, but ABC nearly scored an upset in total viewers thanks to the "Dancing With the Stars" finale.

FOX drew 15.55 million viewers and an 8.8 rating/14 share in households in primetime. ABC actually had better household numbers (9.7/16) and trailed FOX by only a few hundred thousand total viewers, averaging 15.2 million for the night. CBS (13.2 million, 8.3/13) was a solid third. NBC (8.6 million, 5.1/8) came in fourth with a pair of finales, while reruns on The CW (676,000, 0.5/1) were not a factor.

The race wasn't as tight among adults 18-49: FOX's 5.7 rating was far and away the night's best. NBC finished second in the demo with a 3.4, followed by ABC at 3.1 and CBS at 2.6. The CW earned a 0.3.

Tuesday's hourly numbers:

8 p.m.

FOX: "American Idol" (19.6 million viewers, 11.0/18 households)
CBS: "NCIS" season finale (15.9 million, 9.8/16)
ABC: "Dancing With the Stars" rerun (9.35 million, 6.2/10)
NBC: "The Biggest Loser" season finale (8.6 million, 5.2/8)

18-49 leader: "American Idol" (6.6)

9 p.m.

ABC: "Dancing With the Stars" season finale (17.4 million, 11.0/17)
CBS: "NCIS: Los Angeles" season finale (13.1 million, 8.3/13)

NBC: "The Biggest Loser" season finale (11.2 million, 6.4/10)
The CW: "90210" rerun (545,000, 0.4/1)

18-49 leader: "Glee" (4.8)

10 p.m.

ABC: "Dancing With the Stars" season finale (19 million, 11.9/20)
CBS: "The Good Wife" season finale (10.6 million, 7.0/12)

18-49 leader: "Dancing With the Stars" (4.2)

It still dominated Wednesday night, but the "American Idol" finale fell significantly from its ratings performance last year, which in turn was off from the 2008 finale.

"Idol" and FOX averaged 23.15 million viewers and a 13.0 rating/22 share in households, about 17 percent lower than the preliminary numbers for the 2009 finale (the numbers will probably tick up some in the time zone-adjusted ratings; Zap2it will have those numbers when they come in). CBS was the best of the rest for the night, drawing 10.3 million viewers and a 6.6/11. ABC (4.8 million, 3.1/5) came in third, followed by NBC (3.3 million, 2.2/4) and The CW (1.4 million, 0.9/2).

FOX was similarly down in the adults 18-49 demographic, although its 7.8 rating far surpassed the rest of the field. CBS finished a distant second at 2.4, and ABC was third at 1.8. Neither NBC (0.9) nor The CW (0.6) broke the 1.0 mark.

Wednesday hour by hour:

8 p.m.

FOX: "American Idol" season finale (19.7 million viewers, 11.3/20 households)
CBS: "Undercover Boss" rerun (6.1 million, 4.0/7)
ABC: Movie: "Transformers" (4.4 million, 3.0/5)
NBC: "Minute to Win It" rerun (3.3 million, 2.1/4)
The CW: "America's Next Top Model" rerun (1.4 million, 1.0/2)

18-49 leader: "American Idol" (6.5)

9 p.m.

FOX: "American Idol" season finale (26.6 million, 14.7/24)
CBS: "Criminal Minds" season finale (12.8 million, 8.1/13)
ABC: "Transformers" (4.8 million, 3.2/5)
NBC: "Minute to Win It" rerun (2.6 million, 1.8/3)
The CW: "America's Next Top Model" rerun (1.3 million, 0.9/1)

18-49 leader: "American Idol" (9.2)

10 p.m.

CBS: "CSI: NY" season finale (11.9 million, 7.5/13)
ABC: "Transformers" (5.2 million, 3.3/6)
NBC: "Law & Order: SVU" rerun (3.9 million, 2.7/5)

18-49 leader: "CSI: NY" (2.7)

There wasn't much competition for "So You Think You Can Dance's" seventh season premiere, which handily won FOX the ratings war Thursday night with okay numbers. A slew of reruns (including a strong episode of "The Mentalist") went up against the reality show, in addition to the series cliffhanger finale of ABC's "FlashForward," which pulled in lower ratings than the previous week's penultimate episode. NBC's "100 Questions" wasn't noticed by even less, sandwiched between sitcom reruns.

FOX averaged 8.2 million viewers and a 5.0 rating/9 share in households for the night. Next came CBS with 7.5 million and a 4.9/9, then ABC (3.8 million, 2.6/5), NBC (2.7 million, 1.8/3) and The CW (1.6 million, 1.0/2).

FOX also took the 18-49 demo with a 3.0 rating, far ahead of the distant second-place CBS, which had a 1.6. NBC had a 1.1, ABC a 1.0 and The CW trailed with a 0.6.

Thursday hour by hour:

8 p.m.

FOX: "So You Think You Can Dance" premiere (7.8 million viewers, 4.7/9 households)
ABC: "FlashForward" series finale (5.0 million, 3.2/6)
CBS: "How I Met Your Mother" rerun (4 million, 2.7/5), "Rules of Engagement" rerun (4.6 million, 3.1/6)
NBC: "Community" rerun (3 million, 2.1/4)/"100 Questions" (2.5 million, 1.7/3)
The CW: "The Vampire Diaries" rerun (1.8 million, 1.1/2)

18-49 leader: "So You Think You Can Dance" premiere (2.8)

9 p.m.

FOX: "So You Think You Can Dance" premiere (8.5 million, 5.2/9)
CBS: "CSI" rerun (8.3 million, 5.4/9)
ABC: "Hollywood Salutes Matt Damon" (3.3 million, 2.3/4)
NBC: "The Office" rerun (3 million, 2.0/4)/"30 Rock" rerun (2.8 million, 1.9/3)
The CW: "Supernatural" rerun (1.5 million, 0.9/2)

18-49 leader: "So You Think You Can Dance" premiere (3.2)

10 p.m.

CBS: "The Mentalist" rerun (9.9 million, 6.4/12)
ABC: "Grey's Anatomy" rerun (3.1 million, 2.3/4)
NBC: "The Office" rerun (2.6 million, 1.7/3), "Parks and Recreation" rerun (2.3 million, 1.6/3)

18-49 leader: "The Mentalist" (1.8)

Mostly repeats last night and FF went out with a big thud even though it was the only new scripted show.

Since this is for the 2009-2010 TV season and I doubt anybody cares about Summer ratings, this thread can probably be closed and un-stickied.

While it can be un-stickied, probably could be remained open until the 2010-11 season starts (and even so, by then it'll be on page 30 or something). No harm in leaving it open in case we find the numbers for summer shows (like Burn Notice)...

True, but are those consider a new season since they span the 2010-2011 timeframe?

^Good news. I think Royal Pains actually beat Burn Notice most of last season.

If their current seasons run into 2011, then yes, otherwise 2009-10 seems to be OK.


And yes, great numbers for both. Will be interested to see how Psych does next week (I think that's when the season premieres).

USA is turning out to be a better network than NBC. NBC should just put all their shows from NBC on USA.
