You Deserve It: Ratings for the 2011-12 TV Season

You Deserve It ratingsHere are the ratings for You Deserve It. In this game show, contestants try to win big cash prizes for people who that they believe deserve the money. They purchase a series of clues to help them win the money but each clue costs them an unknown amount of money — perhaps small or perhaps large. The series is hosted by The Bachelor’s Chris Harrison with Brooke Burns as co-host. The first season of You Deserve It typically airs Monday nights at 9pm on the ABC network.

The new ABC game show had a pretty underwhelming debut, especially considering that it had a huge lead-in from the last performance episode of this season’s Dancing with the Stars. It lost more than half of that huge audience so it seems unlikely that it’ll do very well with a smaller lead-in. It’s currently the third highest rated reality series on the network (just above America’s Funniest Home Videos) but I suspect we’ll see a fairly big drop off in week two and it will fall in the rankings.


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 You Deserve It TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I figures it would be cancelled. Soon as a decent show..one that actually geared towards helping others airs, you want to cancel it for something ignorant like the Bachelor. I mean really? How desperate does one have to be to come on a show like that? A total joke!

I love this show!! It’s a fun guessing game and it’s wonderful to see family members
and friends of the contestants win the money, much to their surprise, who really
need it!! Why did they bump this good show for the dumb Bachelor show?!! Bring
back You Deserve It, please!! I love Dancing with the Stars and You Deserve It,
but I do NOT watch The Bachelor or The Bachelorette! Those two shows are a waste
of time!!

My husband & I love the new show “You Deserve It”!! I think it’s wonderful that they have a new show where people can win money for a deserving person. The game is suspenseful & exciting as the contestant tries to win more money each time. The best part is to see the reaction of the deserving person when they see & hear what their loved one has done for them!! PLEASE keep the show for next season!!!!!!!!!
