NBC (ended 2007)
|Well, I'm seeing no bright future for this Sorkin drama since ABC announced their move of Greys Anatomy to the same time slot. |
CSI will be number 1, Greys Anatomy number 2 and Studio 60 number 3 in ratings. The three shows will cannibalize each other...
OMG! ABC did what with Grey's? I just looked at the abc press release for next fall, and I think they're trying to kill Grey's, and/or hope that it's so stong it can handle that shift, a lousy rookie lead-in, and provide a good lead-in for a show they hope will be able to stay. But that's not the point. We're talking about Studio 60. Totally agree that they're going to kill eachother. But it won't stop me from watching/taping them both.
|CSI's ratings are sliding. In the beginning of the season, the series was making 27 to 29 million viewers each week, then during midseason, the show slid down to 23 to 25 million viewers each week. Only in the recent new episodes has it increased. Its still a powerhouse and the #1 scripted show, but its getting weak. I think both Grey's Anatomy and Studio 60 will hurt it. |
And like someone posted above, it will likely be CSI at #1, then Grey's Anatomy (but not off by much) and then Studio 60 in the #3 spot.
|I think NBC is putting too much faith on this new show. sure it is Sorkin, and you could not find a bigger fan of both his tv shows than me, I garantee you. love'em all. but on the other hand, I must be realistic. this is not the west wing! this is sorkin, but at the same time it's not Martin Sheen, nor John Spencer, nor a behind the scenes look at the white house...those little things made the show too. now, although having read the pilot script for this show I found it extremely funny, it's "only" a behind the scenes look at a variety live comedy show. like I said... it has Sorkin, which is a stamp of quality in any tv show... but its far from being a hit that's equiped to go against the number 1 scripted show in america from the get go. they should test it first on a less competetive time slot first. just my 2 cents|
