It was a weak debut for NBC’s latest reality competition. Compared to the Fall 2011 premiere of Parenthood in the 10pm timeslot, NBC was down by 27% (vs 2.2) in the demo. Compared to the last original episode, the network was down by 16% (vs a 1.9). The debut numbers will put Fashion Star just above NBC’s disappointing Fall reality competition, The Sing Off, on our network report card.


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 Fashion Star TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I get what you guys are saying about not caring about fashion design and i hope you arent saying that you want another American Idol around. But i think that in an age where consumers are demanding more control of what gets put in stores, this show is fantastic to have on air. I think that shows like Project Runway and The Fashion Show have been successful because people love to watch contestants under stress and at each other’s necks. My favorite part about Fashion Star is that the buyers are constantly forcing the designers to stay true to themselves while still appealing to a mass market. I think that this is a great new type of show and i hope it comes back for a second season!

Was really looking forward to the show, but unfortunately I thought it was really boring. Don’t think this will make it.

I blame demons like they have on Supernatural. They possess the bodies of Neilsen families. They love chaos and reality shows.

I don’t know why NBC put this show on the air. These design shows have not brought in network level ratings on the cable channels, and I wouldn’t expect them to do much better on a network. People love singing and dancing. I don’t think they love to learn about fashion design.

I also recognize that Jessica Simpson makes most of her money through retail clothing sales, but she would be better on X-Factor.
