The first results of NBC’s Olympic promotion are in, and they’re not encouraging. Over on cable, the news was much better for TNT with their big series finale for ‘The Closer’, and premiere of ‘Major Crimes’.
The Olympics continued to dominate all of television, moving into position to pass the Beijing games as the most watched TV event in US history. On cable, ‘Dallas’ wrapped season one on a good note.
The London Olympic Games took over all of television last week. The networks largely went with the run and hide philosophy. The shows that did brave the games met with varied success, and failure.
If there’s one thing we all have learned by this point… people, in the general, do like a good opening ceremony. As expected, the ‘Olympic Games’ got off to a great start for NBC. Over on cable, the starts weren’t quite as good for ‘Warehouse 13′ and ‘Alphas’.
And on this very special version of “Little Boxes”: Steve Martin and Kevin Nealon! While Steve Martin played the banjo, Kevin Nealon, AKA Doug Wilson, screamed the lyrics. Awesome!
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’.
