A disappointing start for NBC’s Bent. Both episodes were in fourth place in their timeslots, registering CW-level ratings. After just one night, Bent is the lowest-rated show on the network — with the exception of Saturday night’s all-but-officially-cancelled legal drama, The Firm.


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.

    This is a fine show. It gets cancelled, Whitney stays on the air. 2 1`/2 Men, How I met Your Mother, New Girl, all worthless shows, they are picked up, but a clever show with actual “likable” charactors and taelnted actors gets canned. I’t shame, Like Arrested Developement and My Name Is Earl.

    Please don’t cancel “Bent” great cast and dialogue, something different than all the rest. Its is funny without being stupid.

    Keep it!!! The writing is quick and witty with several character developments and separate, but woven together “easy to follow” story lines already established all within the first 6 episodes. The show’s cast play so well off each other you’d think it was in it’s third season. I’ve liked it from the first episode. Let’s have season two NBC – given them a chance to grow (marketshare) and advertise it a little better.

    I was just getting into the show, thought it was hilarious!! Ready for the the show to continue on.

    This show is entertaining as all heck- don’t cancel it! I need a show that doesn’t require a lot of focus but helps me laugh about whatever- with a bit of romance slightly tossed in. Quit listening to idiotic ratings and just give us our show.
