Good stuff for Bones, and Private Practice bounces back as well.

NBC still looks screwed though.

Re: TV Ratings (Wednesday 5th November)

Winners...
DWTS, Criminal Minds, CSI: NY and Bones
Honorable Mention...
Private Practice
Decent...
Next Top Model
Losers...
L&O, Knight Rider, Life, Old Christine, Garry Unmarried, Dirty Sexy Money and Stylista

Round-Up...

NBC hit a whole new low and possibly its worst Wednesday Night in its history. Knight Rider I feel was probably a blip due to the week break, up against DWTS this time and the return of Bones however if these ratings stay then NBC will cancel the episode pickup, which is a pity because KR has been getting better. LIFE is dead and NBC will cancel it either this week or next and Law & Order built well out of LIFE but a show in its 19th season getting those ratings is not worthy of anything else but the losers list.

CBS will regret there idea to air Christine away from Monday night, especially with Worst Week now a flop and because of that they are set to lose 3 comedies this year. I know some people will say oh CBS might be happy because they do so well in every other night but we know they won't and in this case rightly so. CSI was quite low but I would say nothing more than a blip and I think CSI will bury L&O this year and stop it from getting that 20th landmark season.

ABC will be happy that Private Practice was up but DWTS is back to Tuesday next week so it will drop again but the increae proves my theory that a strong lead in (GREYS) will boost the show if moved to Thursday at 10pm and they can save Life on Mars too with pairing it up with LOST on wednesdays 9-11pm (ABC give me a job). Dirty Sexy Money will be cancelled before November ends.

Bones was back with a bang just slighty down in viewers from the last episode and this gem needs to be handled well by FOX, which means the scrap the midseason friday night idea you idiots.

CW was normal with Top Model behind one year ago but still doing good work and the follow up show a total flop.

The demo for Knight Rider is especially amusing when you realize the only rationale for its existence is to appeal to the young male audience. Ford will probably start refusing to let NBC use its nice cars in their lousy show.

Re: TV Ratings (Wednesday 5th November)

KR has been coming 1st in the male demo though I do hope its a blip and it recovers when PD is back and Bones will drop slighty into the 9 million range. No matter If I like it or not, NBC made no mistakes in the timeslot, 8pm wednesday is a good one and if it can't get at the minimum 6.5 million then I wouls scrap the 22 episode order. Also despite being a fan, I would not renew for a 2nd year if it doesn't get above 7 million.

Only time will tell I guess though one thing for sure is ABC will give PD no more than one final shot though they might call it before the next episode.

I like Life and Pushing Daisies. We watch Knight Rider and it is enjoyable enough I guess.
