Idol Doing Well, Survivor Not So Much!

Survivor Low On Ratings

Okay! Let's do this!

So, Wednesday night numbers are in!

Who took the top spot?? Well, it's not that surprising, but, American Idol's Hollywood week is the champ! It had no mercy on its competitior, CBS, beating the pants off them with a 153% difference!

Wow!

Suspect Behavior, Forest Whitaker's spinoff of Criminal Minds, actually beat out it's original counterpart on its debut.

Survivor, unfortunately, had its lowest premiere ever.

The source says this about Survivor:

"[It] was the franchise's lowest-rated premiere to date, down 29% from last year's spring launch. Significant to note: Survivor has never competed head-to-head with Idol until this season, as the CBS reality series has almost always aired Sundays."

Well, it makes sense to us that it would happen going up against Idol for the first time!

And finally, we had an article last week about Mr. Sunshine pulling in extremely strong numbers for its debut.

It didn't last, we're afraid, as it took a pretty big hit in numbers this week, alongside its lead-in, the hilarious Modern Family.

Well, congrats Idol, and good luck to everyone else next week!

What did U watch last night??

    Survivor was a bit boring last night but it gets better as the season goes on. As for Idol I don't see why people would bother watching that crap.



  2. 2

    They don't know what they're talking about. " Survivir always aired on Sundays."
    Survivor never aired on Sundays, always on Thursdays. Sundays is the final only.



  3. 3

    Except for its final - Survivor was always on Thursdays !!

    Survivor shouldn't have put Russell Hantz into yet another season. People are sick of him. Well, I am anyway. I did tune in, though, and Phillip is the guy to watch this season. LOL! OMG - that guy is insane. Not in a good way. Mr. Sunshine sucks. I feel sorry for Perry but the writing is just terrible. On the other hand, LeBlanc's "Episodes" is pretty damn funny. I highly recommend it. Can't do Idol - can't stand J.Lo. Ugggh.

    Who cares about realtime ratings anymore, now that we're in the age of the PVR? How many people watched Idol and THEN watched the Survivor they recorded?

    ya what is up with that quote? only the survivor finale is on sunday. survivor has never been against idol because this is the first year survivor has been on wednesdays, every other year on thursdays (america idol was on tues and wed besides this season). now survivor is on wednesdays and idol is on wednesdays and thursdays.



  9. 9

    I didn't watch cause I can't stand that Russel guy. Who wants to see losing contestants play again anyways?

    SURVIVOR! Quit watching Idol 2 years ago…

    And Perez, do a better job copying and pasting…your 'source' has it written correctly!
    *
    Survivor: Redemption Island (11.2 million, 3.2) aired at 8 p.m. and was the franchise's lowest-rated premiere to date, down 29% from last year's spring launch. Significant to note: Survivor has never competed head-to-head with Idol until this season, as the CBS reality series aired Thursdays, with its finales broadcasting Sundays. Survivor began airing Wednesdays last season.

    SURVIVOR USED TO BE A FUN SHOW UNTIL THEY STARTED TO TOTALLY MANIPULATE THE ENTIRE SEASON A FEW SEASONS AGO. IT HAS SUCKED DONKEY FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS WHEN THEY STARTED PICKING CONTESTANTS ON A FORMULA. NOW THERE ARE WAY BETTER THINGS TO DO INSTEAD OF WATCH THAT DYING SHOW.



  13. 13

    wow… your source totally discredits himself by not even getting the correct day on which it airs correct. WTG Perez.

    Sick of that prissy looking, chubby Boston Rob, sick of fat, ugly Russell, sick of dimples Propst — and I'm sad that Mr. Sunshine wasn't better this week. I liked it the first week.



  15. 15

    Survivor was advertised as premiering on Thursday, so I missed it!
    And I didn't even know Mr. Sunshine was starting…………



  16. 16

    I watched Survivor and it was the best premiere ever! I love that show!



  17. 17
