Even news programs aren’t immune to being axed. NBC has cancelled Rock Center with Brian Williams after two low-rated seasons.
It’s actually a wonder that the show was renewed for a second season given its dismal ratings. Last year, on Monday nights, it barely averaged a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.54 million viewers. This season, it’s done even worse — drawing a 1.0 rating average.
The numbers held steady when it was moved from Thursdays to Friday nights but was typically trounced by the competition.
Dateline, which also airs on Friday evenings has been averaging a better 1.3 in the demo and 5.18 million.
Word is that Rock Center with Brian Williams will stay on the schedule until some time next month.
What do you think? Did you like Rock Center? Was it better than Dateline?
