Sunday, May 27th Primetime Ratings

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 05/28/2012

RatingsFox wins Sunday ‘s Ratings Race with an exciting presentation of the Indy 500.

No one is surprised that Fox won with Indy on its back, it’s why FOX purchased the broadcasting licenses. The race peaked at 9:30 with 7.43m viewers and by that point it was crushing the Network competition.

 

CBS finished the night in second, with a typically strong showing from its veteran 60 minutes, which peaked with 6.09 million viewers. NBC was a disappointing third with the season and possible series final of ‘Harry’s Law’. The show never got off the ground and only garnered 5.7m viewers; A low number for any season finale.

 

ABC was last of the big four with repeats of Duets providing nothing for a network grasping for musical competition straws. Enough already. If  American Idol’s Ratings are falling off a cliff, you don’t try and create a new music competition show. The run is almost over. In ten years from now we will look back on American  Idol and The Voice as fads. Extremely successful fads, but fads nonetheless. Don’t forget, there was a time when Soul Train  and celebrity games shows ruled primetime.

 

NOTE: The CW Ratings have been delayed due to Memorial Day.
