Ratings: Psych Plunges From Premiere - Featured

From TV By the Numbers:


Robert posted last week about the 20% ratings fall Leverage suffered against the season premiere of Psych. Last night Psych got hit hard in a post-premiere slump, and Leverage was mixed, but topped Psych in average viewers and closed the gap in adults 18-49.



Psych slid almost 35% to just 2.856 million viewers (vs. 4.367 million for the premiere). It's A18-49 rating fell to a 1.1 from a 1.5 for the premiere. The "USA strategy of moving dramas off Friday was a success" pronouncement may have been a bit premature.


TNT might have hoped for a big rebound for Leverage, but it was effectively flat. Down 4% in viewers to 2.913 million (from 3.020 million last week). But it got a little boost in its A18-49 ratings to a 0.9 from a 0.8 last week.


Both had a new CSI:NY and Ugly Betty on broadcast as competition this week vs. repeats last week.

USA should have just moved Psych to 9 on fridays with White Collar as its follow. The whole teusday, wednesday thursday at 10 is just dumb. Your shows worked where they were, why move them? Its not like USA was airing new content on fridays.

i kind of agree, but i love psych so much that it made me reluctant to have a life on Friday nights.
