NBC's Wed. ratings respectable with 'Revelations'

21 April 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NBC's prayers were answered Wednesday as the faithful returned in respectable numbers for the second outing of the peacock's drama Revelations. It delivered 11.5 million viewers and 4.5 rating/11 share in the adults 18-49 demographic at 9 p.m. according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. That was down 13% in the demo from last week's premiere numbers, but impressive nonetheless against the heat of Fox's American Idol (21.8 million, 9.4/24). Revelations also had less of a leg up this week from its lead-in, 8 p.m.'s Dateline NBC (6.8 million, 2.3/7), compared to last week when the newsmagazine's numbers were boosted by its special tie-in with the religious phenomena theme of Revelations. Fox, meanwhile, had mixed results from its fledgling Wednesday comedies. The Pamela Anderson starrer Stacked (7.4 million, 3.4/10) showed some life in the 8:30 p.m. slot, building on its The Simple Life: Interns lead-in (6.4 million, 2.9/9). But on the other end of the 9 p.m. edition of Idol, sitcom Life on a Stick (8.2 million, 3.8/9) plunged from its lofty lead-in numbers. »

'Lost' leads ABC on Wed.

1 April 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Lost packed 'em in again for ABC on Wednesday, but it was slower going for the 10 p.m. debut of the network's midseason drama Eyes. Fox won the night overall in the key adults 18-49 demographic on the strength of 9 p.m.'s American Idol, which brought in 24.9 million viewers and a 10.6 rating/26 share in the demo, according to Nielsen Media Research. The network's new 9:30 p.m. comedy Life on a Stick (9.5 million, 4.4/11) had little luck in capitalizing on its lead-in. Stick slipped behind ABC's 9 p.m. drama Alias (10.8 million, 4.4/11) and NBC's The West Wing (9.9 million, 3.0/7) in total viewers. CBS' The King of Queens (9 million, 2.8/7) was pounded by Idol at 9 p.m., but the eye network's fortunes perked up some at 9:30 p.m. with Yes, Dear (9.7 million, 3.5/9). »
