Since December is a bit of a slow time in the TV season, I thought I'd help fill the gap and "order up" a few new midseason editions of The War of 18-49, my series that looks at the ratings history of veteran programs. There were a handful of eligible regular season shows that I either forgot about or didn't get around to last summer, and this seems like a good time to knock them out. The original plan was six "all new" posts and six "update" posts, in which I add the ratings for a recently completed season and do a brief ratings season-in-review. Sadly, I couldn't find enough info on one of those all new shows (King of the Hill) to really feel good about doing it, so there will only be five all new ones for now. But one for each network...!
Here's the plan for this December's three weeks of War:
12/6/10 - (ALL NEW) The War of 18-49, Prison Break (Fox)
12/7/10 - (ALL NEW) The War of 18-49, The Unit (CBS)
12/8/10 - War of 18-49 Update, America's Next Top Model
12/13/10 - (ALL NEW) The War of 18-49, Deal or No Deal (NBC)
12/14/10 - War of 18-49 Update, Dancing with the Stars
12/15/10 - War of 18-49 Update, The Amazing Race
12/16/10 - War of 18-49 Update, The Apprentice
12/20/10 - War of 18-49 Update, The Biggest Loser
12/21/10 - (ALL NEW) The War of 18-49, Boston Legal (ABC)
12/22/10 - War of 18-49 Update, Survivor
12/23/10 - (ALL NEW) The War of 18-49, Everybody Hates Chris (UPN/The CW)
By the time we get to the end of this, we'll be back into the holidays and just a couple weeks from lots of midseason TV stuff rolling out!
