Bad heir day: 'I Wanna Marry Harry' a royal ratings bomb

21 May 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Fox’s latest sinisterly entertaining reality stunt I Wanna Marry Harry got off to a very poor start in the ratings.

The series where 12 American women travel to England for to compete for a man they’re indirectly duped into believing is Prince Harry delivered a pauper’s 2.1 million viewers and a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 during its Tuesday night premiere. (EW’s take on Harry).

Granted, the Fox series premiered against very heavy reality competition (so heavy, in fact, one wonders why the network didn’t simply wait a week to debut their new show). Harry was up against »

Upfronts 2014: ABC makes big moves on Tuesdays and Thursdays

13 May 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the most part, the fall schedules announced by NBC and Fox at the start of upfront week were logical and conservative, leaving major changes for midseason (and in some cases not even announcing midseason plans beyond series pick-ups). As the fourth-place broadcast network — despite having some of the bigger hits on television in "Scandal," "Modern Family" and "Grey's Anatomy" — ABC can't afford to play things so safely. So with 12 new series debuting between fall and mid-season, there are a lot of changes on the schedule. The most prominent comes on Thursday, where "Grey's" and "Scandal" will each air an hour earlier (despite both being among the more sexually frank shows on network TV, and "Scandal" being among the more graphically violent) at 8 and 9, respectively, forming an entire night of Shonda Rhimes-produced programming, with Viola Davis as a law professor turned sleuth in "How to Get Away with Murder »
