Ratings for "Knight and the City"

Post by neps » Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:59 am

here are the early overnights from tvbythenumbers:

8:00 FOX American Idol 24.39 8.9/24 7.5/22
CBS New Adventures of Old Christine 7.32 2.0/6 1.3/4
ABC LOST (R) 5.57 2.0/5 1.6/5
NBC Knight Rider 5.49 1.5/4 1.3/4
UNI Cuidado con el Angel 4.58 1.7/5 2.0/6
CW Privileged (R) 0.86 0.3/1 0.4/1


note this - final numbers wont be available until tmw :
All overnight data for Tuesday, Feb. 17, Wednesday, Feb. 18, and Thursday, Feb. 19 will be held by Nielsen until Friday due to stations making the digital transition. Although a small percentage of stations transitioned yesterday, the purpose of the three-day hold is to ensure that all necessary changes have been made in Nielsen’s internal systems to properly credit the stations that transition. Overnight data for Tuesday through Thursday is expected to be released on Friday morning.

This is from zap2it - seems like ratings wise the results are the same for lost - but actual viewers lost had a few more:

The "American Idol" results show scored a 14.0/22 and 24.4 million viewers at 8 p.m., with no other network coming close. CBS was the best of the rest with "The New Adventures of Old Christine," 4.7/8, and "Gary Unmarried," 4.6/7. NBC's "Knight Rider" and a "Lost" rerun on ABC each drew a 3.6/6, with ABC grabbing a few more viewers. The CW aired a "Privileged" rerun.

That's actually a modest improvement, so that's good.

Too bad they don't count the online viewing and the people the DVR it. If they did I'm sure the ratings would be hire.

This is very good news. Ratings actually went UP!

It will get even better when we receive the final numbers.

Ratings are still bad.

It doesn't matter how good the episode was. People DO NOT KNOW it improved!

NBC needs to do some PROMOTING dammit!

Meh... I think that's it guys, the end of the road.

Next episode viewers number will be down, thats for sure, because of one week break. I can't imagine any increase unless NBC will air any advertisement.

Apart from the odd spike at least they are consistent, this rating system doesn't really tell the whole story anyways. When are they gonna get with the program and take all viewers into consideration, not just those with Nielson boxes?

True. More than one person I know didn't even know its still on the air. They haven't seen commercials for it so they assumed it was canceled.

I'm pretty confident the series finale will get some promotion.

I got yelled at by nips for saying "series" finale so you might wanna call it the "season" finale.

I think the fact that Knight Rider is up this week is amazing. Considering the fact that American Idol is also up from last week anyway. That says something to me.

...brit sarcasm.

Double meaning in that one too, I wouldn't be referring to users who have strange obsessions with male porn stars.

As long as KR08 stays up in the top 5 of the top 10, I'd say it has a good chance coming back in the fall.
Yeah, the #'s could be better, but is it holding it's own. Besides, it's up against AI on Fox, Lost on ABC,
the sitcoms on CBS. I think it has a chance, it'll be back.

Most of NBC's shows are not doing too good ratings wise.
