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.

    Pleeeeassseee don’t cancel this show! It is so funny and I am sooo intrigued to see if Alex and Pete end up together. Please keep it going!! Stop canceling good TV!

    Bent is a great show. The cast is fun and, refreshingly, the show has no laugh track! Even the little girl is a competent actor. NBC needs to check their priorities and cancel some of the other trash. 30 Rock would certainly not be missed. It hasn’t been funny in at least 2 years! Whitney is boring too. Anything with a laugh track is boring. I’m so thankful for my cable shows.

    I really like this show but didn’t even start watching it until the last episode. I then watched all episodes on Hulu. I think it is well written show – just my kind of humor. Six episodes is not enough and I really hope they bring it back. I think the network did a terrible job advertising it which is probably why the ratings weren’t so good.

    I really enjoy this show. I think that the network did a poor job of promoting it and should try a little harder for season 2.

  5. Jessica says

    This show was amazing and funny! With an awesome cast. I really hope it doesn’t get cancelled! I think as more people become aware of the show it would become a huge hit!!

    Pienso que 6 episodios no son suficientes para determinar eso! Yo vi los 6 episodios y me encantó, la deberían dejar por lo menos una temporada completa a ver como le va!!
