Nip/Tuck season premiere a mixed ratings bag

FX's Nip/Tuck got off to a good start with its fourth-season premiere Tuesday, drawing 4.8 million total viewers at 10-11:10 p.m.

That was off from the series' 92-minute season-three premiere, which averaged 5.3 million total viewers in September 2005, according to Nielsen Media Research, but up from the first- and second-season premieres of the plastic-surgery drama, which drew 3.7 million and 3.8 million total viewers, respectively.

A repeat airing of the Season 4 debut at 11:10 p.m. drew 1.7 million total viewers.

Among adults 18-49, the 10 p.m. episode delivered 3.4 million viewers, making it the year's top basic-cable season premiere in that demo despite being off from the third-season premiere of 3.7 million adults 18-49.

Nip/Tuck airs in the time slot previously occupied by Rescue Me, which recently ended its third season with 3 million total viewers and 1.9 million adults 18-49.

The Nip/Tuck season-four premiere episode repeats at 11 p.m. Friday and 10 p.m. Sunday.

I used to love this show and rarely missed an episode...then i find out that the times for the show have changed without any notice being given. This happend to a few of my friends as well, they did not a have a clue that the viewing times and days have changed and now none of us watch the show.

Is this show cancelled? At the beginning of this last season, I got hooked and rented all the previous seasons and had a marathon. Now, I cant live without this show. When is the next season starting? I thought all the seasons were good. I am a little confused about them moving to hollywood. Is that it for the show or what?

I have loved Nip Tuck and buy the seasons after they are done - I love Christian's character the most because it is so much like the one I gre familiary with on the Charmed Ones. BUT this season is BORING. There is no story line to speak of and if there is I must have fallen asleep too much to notice it. It is like a regular weekly sitcom with no story line like previosly - disappointing compared to their previous seasons. Hope they have plans that will make up for it the remaining episodes. I would hate to see it go off the air

That's because season 2 left off with a cliffhanger that left everybody absolutely wanting to know how season 3 would start off. Season 3 ultimately left us with nothing in the way of a cliffhanger, therefore no real urgency to watch the season 4 premiere. So with that taking into consideration how mediocre the whole season 3 ultimately was, I'd call it a rousing success and be surprised that the number wasn't much lower than that.
