While it’s likely that some people out there were hoping that “Desperate Housewives” would end with a little bit more of a ratings bang than it did, ABC also is likely not too upset over the ratings from Sunday. After all, the network never once deviated below a 3.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with their programming.
ABC – Both “Once Upon a Time” and “Housewives” drew 3.2 ratings as they closed off the season, with the latter show scoring around two million more total viewers.
CBS – For CBS, they received a message rather loud and clear — having a predictable finale to a predictable season is not a good thing. “Survivor: One World” brought it just a 2.8 rating — which is a good rating for some shows, but marks the lowest-rated finale here in the series’ lengthy history.
NBC – Ironically, “Harry’s Law” inched up to a 1.0 rating following the cancellation announcement, and “The Celebrity Apprentice” dropped to a 1.8 with all of the competition from other networks.
Fox – Everything for the network was either even with last week or down, and “Family Guy” posted the best ratings of the night with a 2.3. Granted, pretty much all of these shows are already renewed, and thus it is not a major issue.
Why do you think the “Survivor” ratings were down, and are you happy with the final “Housewives” audiences?
