Winning the timeslot in the first week, as we know, is no indication of much at all, except to congratulate the marketing team on a job well done.
90210 which had delivered the highest rated series premiere ever for the CW network in the 18-49 demographic, found a 35% drop in that same demographic just a week later. That doesn’t bode well for TEN next Monday night. A week later the show isn’t even on in Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth due to the Brownlow Medal -a great way to confuse the audience.
Meanwhile Fringe has also premiered to an ok audience in the US where it averaged 9 million, from its first to its third half hour. It won its slot with ‘good but not great’ numbers. Next week it is assisted by the return of House as a lead-in.
