Ratings: ABC's Comedy Numbers Are No Laughing Matter

ABC's new comedies have given the network something to smile about. Modern Family and Cougar Town debuted to 12.7 million and 11.4 million viewers, respectively. Although CBS' Criminal Minds won the 9/8c timeslot in overall viewers (15.4 million), the ABC comedy combo was the most-watched in the key demographics. Following a Dancing with the Stars results show, which won the 8/7c hour with 15 million viewers, Modern Family improved ABC's rating in the demo by 23 percent. Despite stiff premiere competition at 9/8c, Glee pulled 6.6 million viewers, a loss of only 5 percent week-to-week. NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit premiere was watched by 8.2 million viewers, but came up last in the demos. Comedy wasn't as strong for CBS. A 8/7c combo of debuts from The New Adventures of Old Christine (7.7 million viewers) and Gary Unmarried (7.4 million viewers) took second behind Dancing. Fox's So You Think You Can Dance was up slightly from a week ago with 5.6 million viewers and NBC's Mercy debuted to 8.2 million viewers. At 10, ABC's Eastwick (8.5 million viewers) fared decently with the comedy lead-in, placing second behind CBS' CSI: NY , which won the hour with 14.6 million viewers. Jay Leno was watched by 6.4 million viewers, but earned its lowest rating in the demo to date. America's Next Top Model pulled in 2.8 million viewers for The CW at 8/7c, but The Beautiful Life : TBL fell sharply to 1.4 million viewers the following hour. Source Here

"Modern Family" and "Cougar Town" Debut Big for ABC - Featured

12.7 and 11.4 million viewers tuned into the premieres of Modern Family and Cougar Town respectively on ABC last night. For a network that has had historic difficulty launching 30 minute comedies, this is fantastic news! CBS was also a ratings winner last night with the premieres of Criminal Minds (15.4 million) and CSI: NY (14.6 million), as well as the return of their Wednesday comedies, The New Adventures of Old Christine (7.7 mil) and Gary Unmarried (7.4 mil). Over on NBC, Mercy debuted to a respectable 8.2 million viewers, finishing second in the 8PM hour behind Dancing with the Stars on ABC. Slightly disappointing for the net was the return of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit , which was down considerably from last year, with only 8.4 million viewers. At 10PM, ABC also debuted new series Eastwick , which picked up a decent 8.5 million viewers, easily beating The Jay Leno Show on NBC (6.4 mil). The biggest loser of the night: The Beautiful Life on The CW , with an embarrassing 1.1 million viewers. Have you entered our Fall TV Death Pool on Facebook yet? I'd say TBL is a prime candidate for an early cancellation... What premieres did you watch last night? Ratings Source

Tonight's TV Hot List: Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2009 - Featured

* Cougar Town (9:30/8:30c ABC) Lest ye think this new comedy is all about older women chasing younger men - though there is that - the producers, including Scrubs' Bill Lawrence, conveniently dodge that cliche tying it to a high-school football team's nickname. As for that first premise, it could also describe fortysomething divorcee Jules Cobb (Courteney Cox) being figuratively chewed up and spit out by a big cat called life. Should she get back out there and date? Well, she's just not sure, and, in tonight's premiere, neither is her mortified teenage son. * Modern Family (9/8c ABC) "Family. Redefined." That's an old tagline for The Sopranos, but TV familial units have been evolving since the beginning, and this new comedy is living proof. Shot mockumentary-style, the series follows the unusual kinship of the Pritchett clan, led by patriarch Jay (Ed O'Neill), whose much younger wife (Sofia Vergara) has a son of her own. Revealing more would spoil the fun of peeling back the layers one at a time, and the undercurrent of warmth at work here makes it one of the season's most promising sitcoms. * Mercy (8/7c NBC) The highs and lows of three nurses at a hospital in Jersey City, N.J., are charted in this new medical drama. The series centers on Veronica Callahan (newbie Taylor Schilling), an adept caregiver who lands work at Mercy Hospital after a tour of duty in Iraq. But Veronica's love life is ready to flatline: Her marriage is splintering, and a tempting new doctor only complicates matters. Veronica's nursing colleagues include a swaggering gal pal (Jaime Lee Kirchner) and a naive rookie (Michelle Trachtenberg). Although this is yet another entry in the crowded hospital-drama genre, the gritty New Jersey locations and an attractive young cast make for good medicine. * The New Adventures of Old Christine (8/7c CBS) Last season's hilarious finale ended in a cliffhanger that left a couple of key questions unanswered. Are new Christine and Richard getting married and is Barb being deported? It's not giving anything away to say the answers are no and yes. As the fifth season begins, the wedding is off and Barb is in the Bahamas after being booted out of the States. But not to worry. Christine and Matthew fly down to help Barb obtain an illegal visa so she can return to the U.S. * Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (9/8c NBC) After a hiatus filled with reports on hard-fought contract negotiations, Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni are returning for the series' 11th season, albeit on a new night and at a new time. And they've got some reluctant company tonight: Off. Nate Kendall ( Prison Break 's Wentworth Miller), a cop who likes to do his things his own way. He helps a rape victim, then must stay on the case after by-the-book Executive ADA Sonya Paxton (Christine Lahti) suspects a serial rapist is behind things. Source Here
