Skating With the Stars: The Numbers ALREADY Aren't Good
For those of you into this type of data, TVByTheNumbers.com is reporting the first viewership totals for last nights broadcast television shows. Skating With the Stars had big numbers for the first thirty minutes because of Dancing With the Stars running (as scheduled) 13 minutes over, but by the end of the night, Skating was down to just a 1.9 share in the all-important 18-49 year-old category. As a comparison, Dancing With the Stars earned a 4.7 and Two and a Half Men a 4.5 last night. With just short of 7 million viewers throughout the 10 PM hour (compared to Dancings 23 million at 8 PM), these numbers are going to get more and more miserable in the next few weeks. I thought the Dancing fans would at least give it a chance, but you can see that the ones who did stick around already gave up on it by the second hour. Ouch.
