Last night saw some serious drops and rises in the ratings. The biggest loser of the night was ABC’s No Ordinary Family which fell nearly 23% in the all-important 18-49 demographic ratings (when compared to the last original episode).
This is easily a new series low. The Dancing with the Stars results program fell 15% but Detroit 1-8-7 remained the same. Unfortunately for the latter, it’s settled in at a low rating and is consistently in last place for the timeslot.
On FOX, Glee was up by nearly 9% and Raising Hope saw an increase of 8%. At 8:30, a repeat of Raising Hope performed 31% better than the previous week’s Running Wilde episode. All the more reason to assume that Wilde is done.
On The CW, One Tree Hill was up by 12.5% in the 18-49 demo and up nearly 19% in the network’s targeted demo of women 18-34. It was negative news for Life Unexpected though. The drama was down 14% in the demo and down 15.4% with females 18-34. With numbers like these, it’s hard to imagine that the series will be coming back for more episodes.
