Ratings Clack – Anger Management no match for a new Duncan

FX had the big story on cable with the premiere of Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management', but it was surprisingly upstaged in the viewer department by 'Good Luck Charlie'. On the broadcast networks, NBC got the Olympic machine fired up a little early.

Good Luck Charlie

CABLE - The big story on cable was the premiere of Charlie Sheen’s surprisingly conventional new FX comedy, Anger Management (5.47m/2.1 – 5.74m/2.3). Those are very good premiere numbers, and they also offered a nice boost to Charlie’s new neighbors, Wilfred (2.53m/1.2) and Louie (1.43m/.7), which are both up over the previous season. It even led to a decent start for Brand X (1.07m/.5) at 11. The one thing Charlie couldn’t do was deny the time-tested allure of a new baby episode of a sit-com. With the addition of the latest Duncan, Good Luck Charlie (7.48m/1.2) saw a big spike in viewers.

NBC - While there are still a few weeks to go before the London Olympics get started, NBC made a little hay by moving some of the Olympic Trials (mostly swimming and gymnastics) into prime time. The seven hours of coverage averaged 6.92m viewers and 2 in the demo. Not great, but a far sight better than what most of the summer programming is bringing in. Elsewhere, it was more of the same for America’s Got Talent (10.45m/3 – 11.67m/3.2 – 10.66m/2.8), Ninja Warrior (5.7m/1.9), and Love In The Wild (4.91m/1.6). Finally, it was an upswing in the yo-yo ratings of Saving Hope (3.19m/.7).

FOX - There was nothing new or exciting to report as the FOX ship was rather steady with Hell’s Kitchen (5.66m/2.4 – 5.51m/2.3), MasterChef (5.32m/2.2 – 5.46m/2.3), and So You Think You Can Dance (5.74m/2.1). The news wasn’t quite as good for new reality entrants Take Me Out (2.32m/1) and The Choice (2.88m/1.2).

ABC - With no NBA it was back to third place for ABC. The Bachelorette (7.03m/2.3) and Wipeout (6.16m/2) looked ok, while  Duets (4.3m/1) and Rookie Blue (4.71m/1.1) brought the expected results. Unfortunately, premiere numbers for The Glass House (3.09m/1.1) and Final Witness (4.21m/1) were not encouraging.

CBS and CW - As has become the norm, CBS only offered Dogs In The City (4.72m/.9) and CW had The Catalina (.49m/.2) and Breaking Pointe (.62m/.2).
