The fall premiere of ANTM was way down when compared to last fall’s edition (which was way down from the 2010 debut). This season started down, by 56% in the demo (vs a 0.9 rating) and down 44% in total viewers (vs 1.96 million). It’s worth noting that last season aired on Wednesday nights, evenings with more competition but also more potential viewers than on Fridays.


Reference point: The Fall 2011 season averaged a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.84 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I did not enjoy this season. I really felt sorry for these girls. They are serious about a career and they add some idiot who dressesin women’s clothes, and the fan vote. What a joke. The jays were sorely missed. If no changes to include people who are serious about the business, and no more of that stupid booty or tush thing she keeps trying to promote, i wont be tuning in.

    THEY DID’T FIRE NIGEL OR THE JAYS JAY QUIT AND THEN MISS JAY AND NIGEL QUIT 2

    Bwahhhhhh I see Nigel Barker is getting his own modeling show in Feb 2013 called “The Face”. I guess firing him wasn’t such a bright idea. Go Nigel!

  4. MsVirgo says

    This season was a total flop! Kelly what’s her face needs to go along with the male model and guy that dresses in women’s clothes. Ms. J and Mr. J helped make the show and were seriously missed this season. Also, giving the fans input was a stupid concept. Laura didn’t deserve to win. If she was so great why did she need the show? Her mother was a model and her father was in the entertainment industry. You mean these people didn’t have the connections to help get her in the industry? Scholarship money was involved and Laura’s win robbed someone like Kiara (who won 4 contests and had a fierce runway walk) lose. This young lady desperately needed the money while Laura had parents that can afford to send her to college. Tyra’s show had become a joke!!!!

    They should have cancelled this show when they fired Nigel Barger and the Jays. They made the show worth watching, Tyra was just a figure-head that tapped our emotions. LOL

  6. Inja says

    She made a huge mistake keeping Kelly “Cuthroat” and dumping Nigel Barker and the two Mr. J’s. It’s not worth turning to now.
