Triple H's SD! debut helps SmackDown! Gain Viewers; ABC Friday Horrible!

Prime-Time Ratings
Friday 6/27/08

-Total Viewers:
CBS: 5.82 million, NBC: 5.52, CW: 4.34, ABC: 3.75, Fox: 3.28

-Adults 18-49:
NBC: 1.5 rating/5 share, CW: 1.4/ 5, CBS and Fox: 1.2/ 5 each, ABC: 1.1/ 4


Note: Any prior rating results are based on the final nationals. Since the level of DVR penetration has increased from 13 percent at this same point last year to approximately 23 percent at present, the overall results may be negatively impacted.


-Friday’s Winners:

-Friday’s Losers (excluding repeats):
Dance Machine (ABC), Movie: XXX – State of the Union, Duel (ABC), 20/20 (ABC)


-Ratings Breakdown:
There was little to say, as usual, on this uneventful summer Friday. CBS was first overall in households and total viewers; NBC was No. 1 among adults 18-49; and the five networks combined totaled a mere 29 share of the audience.

In series-premiere news, ABC reality/competition Dance Machine limped out of the gate with 3.76 million viewers (#4) and a last-place 1.0 rating/4 share among adults 18-49 from 8-9 p.m. Why ABC needed another non-scripted dance themed series is beyond me.

Dance Machine led into the return of flop game show Duel (Viewers: #5, 3.27 million; A18-49: #5: 1.0/ 4) and 20/20 (Viewers: #3, 4.24 million; A18-49: #3, 1.3/ 5) from 9-11 p.m.

In an all encore night, CBS opened with Ghost Whisperer (Viewers: #1, 5.58 million; A18-49: #1t, 1.4/ 6 at 8 p.m.), followed by two repeats of Numb3rs as follows:

Numb3rs R (CBS)
9:00 p.m. Viewers: 5.64 million (#1), A18-49: 1.1/ 4 (#1)
10:00 p.m. Viewers: 6.23 million (#2), A18-49: 1.3/ 5 (#2)

NBC kicked-off with two repeats of Most Outrageous Moments (Viewers: #3, avg. 4.53 million; A18-49: #3, avg. 1.2/ 5 from 8-9 p.m.), followed by a two-hour edition of overused Dateline at 6.02 million viewers (#1) and a 1.6/ 6 among adults 18-49 (#1) from 9-11 p.m.

Soon-to-depart Friday Night Smackdown! on the CW finished third overall in total viewers (4.34 million) and second among adults 18-49 (1.4/ 5). And theatrical XXX – State of the Union capped off the evening for Fox with 3.28 million viewers (#5) and a 1.2/ 5 in the demo (#3t).
