- The Voice (5.1) scored the 2010-11 season's biggest series premiere rating. It was the biggest series premiere rating since Undercover Boss after the Super Bowl in February 2010 and the biggest without a ginormous lead-in since V in November 2009. It was NBC's biggest series premiere and biggest regular entertainment telecast since The Jay Leno Show's premiere in 2009. (Sorry, messed that stat up a couple times! Thanks to TVBTN for finally getting it right.) Riding the coattails was The Biggest Loser, rallying 13% week-to-week from last week's lows despite airing for just one hour.
- In spite of the big competition, Dancing with the Stars: The Results was up 20% week-to-week. Give the Dancing recap lead-in some of the credit there; does the show's 100%+ timeslot improvement and clear aid to Dancing mean we won't see Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution again in the hour?
- Somebody had to be left behind, and it was Fox. Glee and Raising Hope both hit outright season lows and were over 25% below their season averages. Also hitting a new low was Hellcats on the CW, whose results are getting downright ugly. Three months ago, this was one of the steadiest new shows on TV, pulling a 0.9 almost every week. Now, a 0.4 that finishes an abominable 53% below average. My goodness.
