Were you surprised at who the winner was of ABC’s first (and likely last in my opinion) season of ‘Duets’? Yep, me neither.
Baseball led the way on broadcast and cable last week, taking a bit of the shine off of premieres for ‘The Closer’, ‘Perception’, ‘Covert Affairs’, ‘White Collar’, and ‘NY Med’.
A slow holiday week was headlined by gymnasts making a case to go to London on the broadcast networks. On cable, Showtime had premieres for ‘Weeds’ and ‘Episodes’ as Charlie Sheen took a big drop, but the big numbers were for the ‘BET Awards’.
You know, I ask myself that question above every week. But ‘Duets’ is like a train wreck. I have to rubberneck. If for nothing else than to appreciate Kelly Clarkson’s voice and fuel my dislike for Jennifer Nettles. Ya follow? Of course you do.
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.
I have been waiting with breath that is bated for the viewers to finally have their say on ABC’s ‘Duets.’ Instead of just hearing from the “superstar” judges all the time. They should have done this from the outset. So? Who got your vote?
TNT was the big story on cable with the premiere of ‘Falling Skies’. On the broadcast networks, everything again took a back seat to the NBA Finals.
