we have 5 main networks? or do you mean up there in Canuckistan?
(and arent AI's ratings down although still good?)
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
Wednesday's TV Ratings
Wednesday hour by hour:
FOX: "American Idol" (23.6 million, 12.9/20)
ABC: "The Middle" (8.8 million viewers, 5.3/8) / "Better With You" (6.7 million viewers, 4.2/6)
CBS: "Live to Dance" (4.8 million, 3.2/5)
NBC: "Minute to Win It" (4.7 million, 2.8/4)
The CW: "Nikita" rerun (1.5 million, 1.0/2)
18-49 leader: "American Idol" (8.3)
I would not put the CW in the same category as FOX, ABC, CBS and NBC. We have four main networks. That said Live to Dance's ratings were pretty mediocre. I hope the network gives it another chance and Paula Abdul addresses some kinks and smooths them out for the next go 'round.
^^Looks like she won't have time to do that - the show has been axed from the CBS lineup.I hope the network gives it another chance and Paula Abdul addresses some kinks and smooths them out for the next go 'round.
"Live to Dance" cancelled: Abdul reportedly "devastated".
For Paula's sake I hoped it would last, even though I barely watched it. Don't know what she'll do now.
Part of it was casting. Like the first season of SYTYCD, the show didn't attract that many folks who were tops in their fields. It ended up more like a very good dance recital than a competitive dance show. How many folks want to watch a dance recital if they don't know anyone dancing? Also, the judges (other than Paula) are virtual unknowns outside the industry, and, frankly, didn't bring that much personality to the table.

I watched the first two shows, was bored to tears and stopped watching until the end. I then watched the last two shows and actually enjoyed them. Kind of like America's Got Talent, I found there to be too much filler at the beginning and too little real talent. I was also kind of suprised that none of the teams made it to finals vs. two little kids, a little kid and a ballet couple made it (though the third was a very pleasant suprise, I love ballet).
I can understand Paula being upset but if she just wants a paycheck she can always go back to Idol. If they have a hard time with rating this year, she would be a huge draw for them.
