Ratings for "Fly By Knight"

Post by neps » Thu Feb 12, 2009 11:03 am

from pifeedback.com:

Yesterday’s Winners:
American Idol (Fox), Criminal Minds (CBS), CSI: NY (CBS)

-Hurt By American Idol:
The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS), Gary Unmarried (CBS)

-Yesterday’s Losers (Excluding Repeats):
Knight Rider (NBC), Life (NBC), Life on Mars (ABC)

-Ratings Breakdown:
Led by American Idol, Fox stood well above the competing networks on Wednesday, more than doubling the overnight performance of second-place CBS. Third in the metered markets was ABC, followed by NBC and very distant the CW.

The first-hour of American Idol opened the evening for Fox with a 13.5 rating/22 share from 8-9 p.m., which beat the four competing networks combined by 16 percent. Take a look:

-Wednesday 8-9 p.m.
American Idol (Fox): 13.5/22
The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS): 4.4/ 7 and Gary Unmarried (CBS): 4.3/ 7
Knight Rider (NBC): 3.3/ 5
Lost R (ABC): 3.1/ 5
Privileged R (CW): 0.9


Last week KR had a 3.1/5 from the early overnights - so it is a slight increase it appears. Will update as more info comes in/changes. I always like the millions of viewers charts...

last week: viewtopic.php?f=1047&t=13773

i wouldnt lose your hope honestly... we have a very consistent fan base and we may do better at another time slot. but its hard to really say. Right now though, i just think we need to not have a large drop off... the show has found a groove and i I hope it gets the opportunity to expand on it

Don't worry about the ratings. This show is going to do fine. It's doing well with older tv shows. The reports say it's been worth watching by many (in the top 10 category for most viewed online streaming content on NBC.com). And CNN even stated broadcasts just don't fair out well anymore compared to the rising interest in web reliance.

I agree to an extent, we'll never get the rating that we the fans want to see to feel confortable with for the future of the show on wednesday nights when it's up against Dancing and Idol all year long. I wonder if it would fare any better competing with Ghost Whisperer and Terminator at 8 on Fridays.

I just hold out hope that NBC realizes that it's like that because we're going against Idol and they aren't promoting it. When they were promoting the show we were hitting 6 million plus viewers and then they stopped and people went away. The show keeps getting better and it'd be a shame to see the show go away after the successful retooling.

Since they are showing Knight Rider on Wednesday nights if the ratings approve, could they move it on Friday’s. Due to American Idol on Fox and Dancing With the Stars on ABC. It’s a competition and marketing of where you put these shows and who are watching. I tape Knight Rider on my DVR and watch it later. I love the new series. I hope it stays for a couple of seasons or more. Heavily promote it during Chuck, Heroes and Medium on Monday nights. Make it a cult hit, like you did for Heroes.

And by the way, could you bring back “Bionic Woman” I love the show.

That's been my position. Put this show on Friday nights and it'll be #1 or #2.

Geez, how is American Idol going up in ratings? Don't they have enough?

Even 'The New Adventures of Old Christine' is a very distant second place. I don't think Knight Rider is doing too bad, considering.

I agree with the comments that say the show is getting into its groove. As for viewership, I DVR Knight Rider so I can watch it anytime. I hope the show just continues to improve. Come on writers Come up with the story arc to bring back the Hoff. It should be the catalyst that propels the show into cult fandom. Have the Hoff take up the Devon Miles part, and the original KITT, if still active, should have amassed a huge AI. I am thinking the original KITT could be a HAL like computer at FLAG which the new KITT can interact with. The premise is father teaching the son. Probably far fetched. But could be adapted.

Heh, look at that. Increase. Didn't expect that. Though I stand by my earlier position that at this point, ratings have little to do with our hopes for renewal.

Well we got 2 episodes left. NBC wont do anything for Knight Rider at the moment, unless they felt like promoting it like crazy, which wont probably happen.

Hopefully NBC will consider it for a 2nd season.

At this point, I think they have to. Life is tanking and they will lose 5 hours a week in drama once the 10 p.m. Jay Leno show starts airing.

Knight Rider is consistently among the most watched shows on DVR and online (Hulu/NBC.com). I can't imagine getting rid of it just when critics and public are being more favorable.

With the correct marketing and the right slot, I can see KR doing 9 million viewers EASY.

Let's see if they have the guts to keep it. It's a smart choice, actually.

(Life, Kathy and Kim and Lipstick Jungle will be canceled, IMHO. Which is good news for KR)

A DVR, which alot of dish and cable companies offer, is much like a tivo.. but without all that voting and suggesting junk.

It records the full hour, complete with commercials. However, much like a VCR, you can fast forward through the commercials.

And there isn't much going towards the ratings when ppl dvr stuff. It's usually considered part of the 'time-shifting' ratings.

Guys...these ratings are terrible for a show like KR. The pilot had 12 million, the first few eps was "okay" but since then it has ratings like Smallville, for example, which is NOT good for a show that is being broadcasted in the whole country. However its my opinion and I REALLY hope that it'll be picked up, for 2nd season, but there's not so much chance, since NBC doesnt promote it at all except after the actual episode aired.

yeah, since i'm at work when knight rider airs, i record it on my DVR, and then come home and watch it. my parents also record it on their DVR, because my mom is a huge criminal minds fan and watches that instead.. and there's probably a good chunk of people that also record KR and watch american idol.

I have to DVR it also because I run the sound system with another person for the kids program at my church and am not home until about half to three quarters of the way through. It has made me mad though that the last two weeks my local station has not shown KR and shown the local Indiana State University basketball games instead which I see no point in since the team hasn't done any good since it's Lary Bird days.
