Hollywood worried about new season already
Hollywood is the most impatient entity in the entire galaxy. Industry experts and execs are already worried that the new season isn't living up to expectations.
Please note that we are one week into the new season.
There are only two new shows so far that have shown any strength: Bionic Woman and Private Practice. Of course, they've only had one episode each, less than a week ago, so who knows if those numbers are even solid? Returning shows, such as Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, and CSI: Miami are still big ratings-getters, but even their numbers are down. ABC, CBS, NBC are down in the 18-49 demo too
Question: when I reach age 49, does that mean I have to turn in my TV to the networks and start reading AARP magazine and playing golf?.
Maybe the numbers will look different when Nielsen reveals the full ratings picture, including DVR numbers. They now make up 20% of the Nielsen sample, up from 9% last year.
