TV Show Ratings for Wednesday, 04/27/11 [finals]

SurvivorLast night, CBS’ Survivor was the only original program and dipped in the coveted 18-49 demographic. That was in second place, behind the usual winner, American Idol. The FOX reality series was basically flat but Breaking In came up a bit. The new sitcom still loses a ton of the Idol lead-in though.

Over on ABC, Better with You was down once again, tying the series low of a couple weeks earlier. Apparently the extra viewers that watched on Monday night didn’t feel compelled to follow it back to Wednesdays. Cougar Town was down but Happy Endings bounced way back up after last week’s decline.

The NBC special about the upcoming royal wedding flopped but their rerun of Tuesday’s premiere of The Voice did respectably and even beat ABC’s original Happy Endings. Not too shabby. On The CW, America’s Next Top Model surged way up in both of the key demos, nearly matching the season premiere’s figures.

Breaking In was actually funny tonight, from beginning to end! I think it’s the first funny show they’ve had since they began, the first time I said to myself “Oh, yeah, I can see why people keep calling it a sitcom.” Before this night’s episode, it wasn’t a situation comedy, it was just a situation. If the rest of the episodes are this funny, it definitely deserves to be picked up.

Breaking In scored a 2.4 in the finals not a 2.6

@Jenny: Correct. The numbers just hadn’t been updated when you posted.
