Numbers of Interest - Television Ratings for Wednesday 9/23/09

Premiere week continues as a few more shows debuted.

ABC came stronger than I expected on comedy Wednesday with Modern Family getting 4.3 and Cougar Town also with 4.3. They actually gained on Dancing with the Stars which got 3.2. I don't know what happened but it's no longer the ratings powerhouse it once was. Eastwick got 3.0, down quite a bit from Cougar Town. Just from the first week, all look like they will be renewed, but it's too early to tell.

CBS did well with Criminal Minds getting 4.2 and CSI: New York getting 4.0. The New Adventures of Old Christine did poorly with 2.3.

NBC's Mercy started bad with 2.3, and I doubt it will gain viewers from there. NBC has low standards, but I doubt even Mercy will make it. The Jay Leno Show got 2.0 which indicates huge fluctuations based on whats on other shows at the time. I'd guess he has a 1.0 base which is increased depending on how many people don't want to watch the other shows in the timeslot.
