TV Ratings Report: Out of Touch

at . Comments

A pair of new shows appear unlikely to make it to season two, following a Thursday evening that saw both Touch and Missing fall to series lows. Elsewhere: American Idol dropped a bit from last week's results show, but still helped Fox earn the most overall viewers...

I feel bad for The Secret Circle fans, but with Ringer gone and Hart of Dixie on it's way out (hopefully along with Gossip Girl), I can't help but hope it gets canceled. I want another season of Nikita. So I couldn't really give a rats about any of the freshmen shows.


Watch Community people !


Awake shouldn't on at 10 on Thursdays. TVD and TSC are still low.

Yeah Vampire Diaries! Interesting that the Secret Circle was 1 million less than TVD.
It is interesting that POI finished ahead of Grey's. I watch both shows and watched Grey's and recorded POI.
Office is going down!
I am a actually shocked that Awake had 2.2 million it is a very good show and that fact that it had the same amount of viewers that TVD on the CW which the CW always has the lowest viewers is interesting. I fear Awake will not be renewed.
