TV Ratings Report: Wonderland Wobbles, Glee Hits High Note

by at . Comments

Not even Alice could stave off the curse of ABC shows in the 8 p.m. Thursday time slot last night, as Once Upon a Time in Wonderland debuted to very low numbers.

Only 5.7 million viewers tuned in for this spinoff, which garnered a 1.7 rating and which fell way below the opener of Last Resort a year ago (8 million/1.9).

Elsewhere, Glee's emotional tribute to Cory Monteith brought in 7.4 million viewers and 2.8 rating among 18-49-year olds, huge improvements (68 and 75 percent, respectively) over those marks from last Thursday, while NBC sitcoms are a total mess...

The Last Ship started out very strong for TNT last night. Over five million people tuned in for the premiere.


Parenthood is a really good show and has done well for NBC without much support. Parenthood is my weekly cry show. I just hate they moved it to Thursday night. It did much better on Tuesday. Chicago Fire, which I love, is holding it's own on Tuesday at nine. I wish NBC had left Chicago Fire on Wednesday and left Parenthood on Tuesday. NBC has ordered a full season of the MJDS so I hope they keep Thursday going and give it chance as a family night. Somestimes you don't need to drop a show after a just one or two shows. Also NBC needs to put more faith into their other shows instead of building their network around The Voice.


Consider canceling Parenthood and Sean Saves the World


Since day 1, I have thought Parenthood was one of the best shows on tv, I still think that but it has hit its lowest ever and sadly I fear this is the end! :(
Great news for TVD, keeping steady.
I am sure the reason Greys was down was due to no Glee watchers tuning in just to see the tribute.
So happy for Crazy One's for me it was the one pilot I watched not expecting to like it and I do.
