It was an unimpressive start for this new series. It was in third place at 8pm and in second place for the remainder of the half hours, beaten by FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance by 29% in the demo. It may be that America is tiring of singing competitions or at least that they’re not ready to embrace another one so soon after the finales of The Voice and American Idol. Perhaps the network would have benefited from waiting a few weeks to premiere this one.


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.

What do you think? Do you like the Duets TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season? How does it compare to others in this genre?

I loved Duets You didn’t give it enough time. Most people I talked to didn;t even know it existed. Please bring it back. What a refreshing show for families to watch together. We desperately are in need of good family entertainment. This show was unique and I loved having the stars sing with their counterparts. This show was what I call quality entertainment. Lets do away with all the violence and sexual shows on TV. I plead with you help clean up our society and this is a great place to start right here on your network!
