If you’re wanting to see which of the new shows on TV has a good chance of sticking around, then we have some both good and bad news worth checking out.
- Let’s begin wtih the positive — “The X Factor” for Fox was just 0.1 down in the 18-49 demographic from early estimes on Wednesday, and it actually managed to be up in total viewers. Meanwhile, “The Secret Circle” was stead for The CW in its third week, and “Person of Interest” fell 13% to a 2.7 rating — which isn’t bad for a drama series in its second week.
- As for the real losers, there are a few. “Charlie’s Angels” was down a whoppin 29% from last week, and its 1.5 rating pretty much guarantees that it’ll be gone sooner rather than later. (“Community” even beat it by rising versus last week.) “Whitney” was also down 24% to a 2.5 rating — but given the state of NBC’s shows at the moment (including the almost-dead “Free Agents”), it still will likely get a full season at least. “Prime Suspect” was down 17% — but like with “Whitney,” the state of the network could help it (along wtih the fact that it actually is more of a promising show).
- Finally, we close with “How to Be a Gentleman.” Despite following up “The Big Bang Theory” (which easily won the night with a 4.8). this new comedy drew just a 2.7 rating and lost over 5 million viewers. Considering that this show simply is not funny at all, we have to think that “Rules of Engagement” could be getting a reprieve from Saturday nights, after all.
