TV Show Ratings for Tuesday, 03/29/11 [finals]

Body of ProofOn ABC, the much-anticipated premiere of Body of Proof did quite well, helped no doubt by the Dancing with the Stars lead-in. It will be interesting to see how well it performs next week.

On FOX, Traffic Light did terribly once again. NBC’s Biggest Loser was down and Parenthood held steady (though not at a very good level). On CBS, NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles were fine but The Good Wife hit a new series low.

    I agree with Anthony and Cindy Maher’s comments. The show definitely had a “we’ve seen this before” feeling and like Cindy said, Dana’s character is so hard-edged and rude to everyone that she’s a bit off-putting. I don’t remember in the “old days” when every show on a network had such a precise stamp on it. Every ABC show feels the same. Regardless of the subject matter, it’s the same show in a different package. Weird. When did that start happening?

    Really liked Body of Proof. Always appreciate Dana Delany. She was wasted on Desperate Housewives. She handles this lead role with perfection. A multi-faceted character with strength and character. Thanks

    I loved Dana Delany in China Beach. This character is too stiff. As a nurse, I’ve worked with too many real doctors with that personality to watch one on TV. I prefer the warmth of Dr. Moira Isles on Rizolli and Isles to this morgue groupie.

  5. says

    Tried it, wasn’t very impressed. Dana Delany is a very good actress, and Sonja Sohn is always good, but the show overall had a “been there, seen it a hundred times before” feel. I can’t see it being a big hit, but, ya never know.
