Holy Crap: NBC Can't Catch a Break
There was no help from above on Friday night for NBC.
Its latest attempt for a hit, The Book of Daniel flopped in back to back episodes for the Peacock network. It was beaten by less than powerhouse competitors: Close to Home/Numbers (CBS), and In Justice/20/20 (ABC).
So much for the whole "no publicity is bad publicity" deal.
At least its Thursday move wasn't a total loss: My Name is Earl and The Office held numbers typical of the vacationing Apprentice. Of course, the 'Cockers weakened their Tuesday night by moving these comedic jewels, so is a third place finish really a victory?
Of course, the move gave me my Scrubs back, so dat's cool, yo.
Thursday's first hour of ABC's Dancing With The Stars stomped the competition and vastly improved its ratings over the sucking ratings vortex that is Alias. But you knew that.
