CBS' 'Trace' enjoys ratings boom

24 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

With reruns and specials dotting the primetime schedule, the CBS drama Without a Trace was the standout performer for the week ending Dec. 21 when holiday-light viewing levels took a toll on primetime ratings overall. Without a Trace scored its most-watched episode ever on Thursday against lighter competition from a repeat of NBC's 10 p.m. stalwart ER. Trace's bounce came in part because of its higher-than-usual retention level from its lead-in, an original episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which ranked as the week's most-watched program. In fact, it was a good week for all four of the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced dramas on CBS. In addition to Trace and CSI, Monday's CSI: Miami and Sunday's Cold Case delivered strong numbers with original episodes facing off against rerun competition. For the week, CBS led in total viewers by a wide margin with an average of 12.4 million, followed by NBC (9.8 million), ABC (8.8 million), Fox (7.3 million), UPN (3.4 million) and the WB Network (3 million). NBC also enjoyed a comfortable margin of victory for the week in the adults 18-49 demo column. »

24 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

CBS has inked talent holding deals with Latina actresses Lourdes Colon and Veronica Diaz, both discovered in CBS' second Latino/Hispanic Talent Showcase in October, which the network held in association with the Nosotros organization, SAG and AFTRA. The network will try to cast the two actresses in pilots targeted for fall. Colon's performance at the showcase already earned her a guest spot on CBS' drama Without a Trace. She is repped by manager Stacey Pokluda at Hype Entertainment and Jim Kellem at JKA Talent & Literary Agency. CBS vp casting Fern Orenstein called Diaz "a unique talent that can work successfully in a drama or comedy." Argentina-born Diaz has a background in acting, singing and dancing. Her first high-profile gig after relocating to Miami was on Univision's top-rated variety show Sabado Gigante. Her credits also include the indie Vatos. Diaz is repped by David Feldman of Bloom, Hergot & Diemer and managers Vince Lazzo and Armando Trejo of Conquest Talent Entertainment. »

Globe-al reactions: Zuiker, Mac, LaPagila, more

19 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

"I was very happy for Nip/Tuck," was the first reaction of Anthony Zuiker, creator/executive producer of CBS' megahit CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which collected a best drama series nomination and a first major award nom for series star William Petersen. "The Golden Globes have their way of anointing a show and saying, 'Hey, we recognize before anybody else in the marketplace a breakout hit.'" ... Of his second consecutive Globe nom for lead comedy actor, Bernie Mac cited the high quality of the work done by his competitors in the category. "Those are some heavy shows," Mac said. "I'm highly appreciative of being in there with them." ... Anthony LaPaglia, nominated for his lead role in CBS' sophomore drama Without a Trace, admits that he often has to read the script two or three times to follow all the plot threads in the intricately crafted series that focuses on missing-persons investigators. "There are so many red herrings and so many people involved," LaPaglia said. »

CBS wins 'Survivor'-less Thursday

19 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Without a Trace popped for CBS Thursday on a night of lessened competition from reruns on NBC. CBS won the night on the strength of a fresh installment of 9 p.m.'s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which brought in 24.6 million viewers and 7.9 rating/22 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, coupled with a solid retention performance from Without a Trace (19.2 million, 6.1/17) against a repeat ER (11.1 million, 4.9/14), according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. CBS took a big drop in the opening hour of primetime in its first Survivor-less Thursday of the season, following Sunday's Survivor: Pearl Islands finale, but all things considered the Price is Right Spectacular special (12.5 million, 3.2/10) did respectable business in the 8 p.m. hour against a rerun of NBC's Friends (13.4 million, 6.1/19) and an original Good Morning, Miami (10.3 million, 4.8/14). The weaker lead-in took a toll on CSI's demo performance, but the original episode of TV's top drama still jumped 11 share points at 9 p.m. against repeats of NBC's Will & Grace (10.3 million, 4.8/14) and Scrubs (9.0 million, 4.4/12). »

German TV biz bounces back with local fare

11 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

COLOGNE, Germany -- The huge German television market is on the rebound after a year of financial turmoil that literally put it on the mat. The world's No. 2 television market had been floored by the collapse of the advertising and stock markets and by the bankruptcy of the territory's biggest buyer of U.S. films and series. Today, just a year later, the German market is back on its feet, and such American TV series as Scrubs Crossing Jordan and Without a Trace have been picked up for primetime slots in the territory. However, though the German engine is starting to rev up, Hollywood studios are resigned to the fact that there will be no Teutonic windfall. While the smaller, second-tier commercial channels RTL2, VOX, Super RTL, Tele 5 and Kabel 1 still build their schedules largely around U.S. shows, Germany's big five -- commercial stations RTL, ProSieben and Sat.1 and pubwebs ARD and ZDF -- are finding that the real ratings winners are homemade. In fact, local shows are so successful that Germany appears to be on the verge of becoming the first European territory to develop a backend syndication business for its own local programming. »

'CSI' leaves competition in dust

27 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

CBS had the top show of the week by a wide margin in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, but that didn't stop NBC from earning its 13th straight win in the adults 18-49 demographic in the week ending Aug. 24. CBS led the primetime pack in total viewers for the week (8.7 million) and placed a close second to NBC in adults 18-49 (NBC's 2.9 rating/9 share vs. CBS' 2.7/9). Thursday's CSI rerun ranked as the top dog of the week in total viewers (14.6 million) and adults 18-49 (5.0/14). NBC was again buoyed by the steady performance of its summer reality originals, including Monday's For Love or Money 2 and Sunday's The Restaurant. But the big surprise for the peacock last week was muscle flexed by the special 10 p.m. Thursday airing of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the hit makeover show from the peacock's cable sibling Bravo. Queer Eye wound up beating CBS' 10 p.m. Without a Trace rerun despite Trace's advantage from the CSI lead-in. »

TV viewers feast eyes on NBC's 'Restaurant' on Sun.

19 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Restaurant was booked solid on Sunday. The NBC reality series was the standout on a night of weak ratings for the Big Four broadcast networks, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. The Restaurant averaged 8.2 million viewers and 4.0 rating/11 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, which marked the highest 18-49 demo score of any program on the night and helped NBC tie Fox for the night in the demo (2.6/8). CBS led in total viewers (8.4 million), thanks to a good start at 7 p.m. with 60 Minutes (10 million, 1.9/7) and 8 p.m. rerun of Without a Trace (9.5 million, 2.1/7). Fox was buoyed as always by The Simpsons (7.1 million, 3.0/10) and an hour of Malcolm in the Middle reruns (7.2 million, 3.1/9) from 9-10 p.m. ABC was dragged down by the weakness of its X Games coverage from 7-9 p.m. -- the second hour of the extreme sports fest dropped to cable-level viewing levels (3.3 million). ABC's fortunes picked up from 9-11 p.m. with a rerun of the conclusion of miniseries Stephen King's Storm of the Century (5.5 million, 2.2/6). »

Repeats make for sleepy Sunday rate race

11 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

It was an underwhelming night of repeats on Sunday for the Big Four networks, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. The only standout was one of the only nonrepeats on the schedule, NBC's 10 p.m. reality series The Restaurant (7.8 million, 3.6 rating/11 share in adults 18-49), which built on its lead-in from the 9 p.m. repeat of Law & Order: Criminal Intent (9.4 million, 3.1/8). But CBS still won the night in viewers (7.5 million) thanks to 60 Minutes (9.9 million) and a special 8 p.m. rerun of drama series Without a Trace (7.8 million). Fox narrowly topped NBC for the night in the adults 18-49 demographic (2.9/9 versus NBC's 2.6/8) with its regular lineup of comedy reruns, led by The Simpsons (7.6 million, 3.6/12) and Malcolm in the Middle (6.8 million, 3.2/9). ABC was sluggish for the night with a 7-9 p.m. telecast of theatrical Angels in the Outfield and 9-11 p.m. repeat of its telepic Stephen King's Storm of the Century adding up to a nightly average of 6.3 million and 2.1/7 in adults 18-49. »

CBS lifted to top Thurs. with 'CSI' repeat

8 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A repeat of CBS' CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was the top dog on a ho-hum Thursday night. The 9 p.m. CSI encore led the field with an average of 13.5 million viewers and 4.5 rating/14 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. That windfall helped the repeat of Without a Trace (11.3 million, 3.9/12) once again stand tall in the 10 p.m. hour, all of which combined to give CBS the nightly win (11 million, 3.8/12) by a wide margin. NBC really had an off night with its regular rerun slate of comedies and ER falling behind ABC's lineup -- a 50th anniversary TV Bloopers special, an Extreme Makeover rerun and 10 p.m. newsmagazine Primetime Thursday -- for the night in total viewers (ABC's 7.2 million versus NBC's 6.5 million). Fox wasn't any threat either with a rerun of its Beverly Hills, 90210 Reunion special and repeat of the debut episode of The O.C adding up to an average of 3.8 million viewers and 1.8/6 in adults 18-49. »

Dramas fuels CBS to Thurs. win

1 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

CBS snagged another summer Thursday win thanks to some strong legs from dramas CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Without a Trace. NBC opened solid with repeats of Friends (9.6 million viewers, 4,1 rating/15 share among adults 18-49) and Scrubs (8.4 million, 3.7/12), which led the rating race against CBS' The Amazing Race (8.2 million, 3.0/10), according to early Nielsen estimates. CBS took charge at 9 p.m. with a rerun of CSI mustered time-winning 12.7 million, 4.0/12). The network's dominance continued at 10 p.m. with a repeat of Without a Trace (12.1 million, 3.8/11). For the night, CBS averaged 11.0 million viewers and a 3.6/11 in 18-49, followed by NBC 97.3 million, 3.2/10). Fox (6.0, 2.5/8) was third with highest marks for its 101 Things Removed From the Human Body special (6.9 million, 2.9/9). ABC (5.7 million, 1.7/6) trailed the pack with an encore presentation of its Mary and Rhoda telefilm. »

Timberman, WBTV team

9 June 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

After a decade as a top TV development executive, Sarah Timberman is segueing into producing with a two-year overall development deal with Warner Bros. Television. Timberman has exited her post as Universal TV programming president and set up her 25C Prods. banner on the Warner lot, where her husband, writer-producer Ed Redlich (Without a Trace), is also based. Universal's drama development head, Carl Beverly, is also leaving the studio to join Timberman at 25C as head of creative affairs. (The 25C moniker refers to the rural route in New Hampshire near the summer camp where Timberman and Redlich met.) Timberman's aim is to develop a range of primetime material, possibly even unscripted projects, she said. The company's deal with Warner Bros. TV includes a discretionary fund and Timberman said they would cut a handful of deals with writers in the near future. »

President upstages ratings race

5 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The two-hour finale of the America's Most Talented Kid talent competition series perked up for NBC on Friday while competition of a much bloodier sort helped ABC vie with CBS for the nightly win Saturday with its telecast of 2000's Gladiator. Thursday's regular combat between NBC and CBS was upstaged by President Bush's live 9 p.m. EDT address to the nation, which forced the Big Four networks to revamp their East Coast and West Coast lineups for the night. As a result, CBS' and NBC's regularly scheduled 10 p.m. dramas Without a Trace and ER ended well after the 11 p.m. close of primetime. Bush's 26-minute speech announcing the end of major combat in Iraq seemed tailor-made for a sweep stunt with its theatrical presentation of the president speaking from the flight deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln. The address averaged more than 48 million viewers on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CNBC, Fox News Channel and MSNBC combined, according to Nielsen Media Research. »

NBC flashes back with easy Thursday Nielsen win

18 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

NBC had the primetime field to itself on Thursday as CBS' served up a Survivor: Amazon recap special and reruns of dramas CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Without a Trace. But Fox and ABC were still distant competitors -- the combined nightly average for those two networks didn't even match the showing of second-place CBS, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. At 8 p.m Friends (17.7 million viewers, 8.1 rating/26 share in adults 18-49 demographic) had no trouble beating the first half-hour of CBS' Survivor (14.3 million, 5.1/16). At 8:30 p.m., NBC's Scrubs (14.8 million, 6.9/20) held its demo lead but dipped behind CBS in the total viewers. »

CBS stomps rivals in Thursday's ratings race

11 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

CBS ruled the primetime roost on Thursday as NBC served up reruns of Friends, Will & Grace and ER. ABC and Fox, meanwhile, were deep in the Nielsen cellar with near record-low ratings for the night, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. CBS won the night by a wide margins with big turnouts for Survivor: Amazon (19.1 million viewers, 7.2 rating/21 share in the adults 18-49 demo), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (26.1 million, 9.7/25) and Without a Trace (17.6 million, 6.2/16), which had no trouble beating NBC's 10 p.m. ER rerun (11.7 million, 5.3/14). NBC sandwiched originals of Scrubs and Good Morning, Miami between its tentpole reruns but all around it was a lackluster night for the peacock, which took second place (11.9 million, 5.5/15) behind CBS (20.9 million, 7.7/21). ABC's 8-10 p.m. block of Whose Line Is It Anyway? episodes (one original followed by three repeats) and 10 p.m. newsmagazine Primetime Live yielded an anemic 5.1 million viewers and 1.8/5 in 18-49 for the night. Fox was even further behind with a nightly average of 4 million viewers and 1.9/5 in the demo generated by back-to-back That '70s Show repeats and 9 p.m. newsmagazine The Pulse (3.6 million, 1.5/4). »

CBS wins viewer race Thursday, NBC takes demos

5 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

CBS had a strong Thursday night showing from Survivor: The Amazon and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, putting the eye network over the top in the total viewer column for the night. But big turnouts for Friends and ER gave NBC the victory in the adults 18-49 demo. Meanwhile, ABC's 10 p.m. newsmagazine Primetime Live delivered its second highest-numbers of the season on the strength of Diane Sawyer's interview with Lisa Marie Presley, though it was still kept to third place behind ER and CBS' Without a Trace. From 8-10 p.m., however, ABC pulled cable-level numbers with back-to-back episodes of Whose Line is it Anyway? (4.9 million, 1.8/5) and a rerun of last week's Bachelor: Where Are They Now (5.6 million, 2.3/6) reunion special at 9 p.m. Fox also was barely on the radar with a rerun of Married By America (3.4 million, 1.4/4) and newsmagazine The Pulse (3.8 million, 1.6/4). NBC and CBS had their usual see-saw duel in the opening hour of primetime with Friends (20.5 million viewers, 9.7 rating/27 share in the adults 18-49 demo, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media research. CBS' Survivor (20.2 million, 7.4/20) ran a close second and then pulled ahead of NBC's Scrubs (15.5 million, 7.6/20) at 8:30 p.m. At 9 p.m., CSI (25.9 million, 9.2/23) had a strong showing while NBC's comedies, Will & Grace (15.1 million, 7.7/19) and Good Morning, Miami (11.7 million, 5.7/14), had an off night. NBC pulled back into the lead at 10 p.m. with ER (19.1 million, 8.9/24). For the night, NBC averaged 16.8 million and 8.1/21 in 18-49. CBS weighed in with 19.9 million viewers and 7.2/18 in the demo. »

Bruckheimer extends deal with WBTV

3 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jerry Bruckheimer Television is going to be a fixture on the Warner Bros. lot for a long time to come. Bruckheimer's TV company has signed a rich four-year exclusive deal with Warner Bros. Television that runs through June 2007. Financial details of the pact were not disclosed, but it's understood that the deal provides Bruckheimer TV with a multimillion-dollar annual overhead and development fund plus a larger-than-usual share of any backend profits on series that go the distance to syndication. Long a marquee name in the feature film world, Bruckheimer's TV unit, headed by president Jonathan Littman, has emerged as a top supplier of primetime fare in barely three years' time with the success of CBS' dramas CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami and Without a Trace and the eye network's reality-adventure series The Amazing Race. Without a Trace, the first series Bruckheimer produced with Warner Bros. TV, is a shoo-in for a second-season pickup, and the company has drama pilots in contention for the fall at CBS, Fox and the WB. »
