Ratings: 'Heroes,' 'Chuck,' 'My Own Worst Enemy' continue to lose viewers

Worstenemy_l
NBC’s Chuck, Heroes, and My Own Worst Enemy continue to lose viewers, according to preliminary overnight ratings, with My Own Worst Enemy in particular struggling on Mondays. This week, Chuck dipped to 6.2 million viewers at 8 p.m., a drop of about 300k from the show’s previous installment (last week, it was replaced by Deal or No Deal). Heroes returned after its own seven-day hiatus (Saturday Night Live‘s election special took over its time slot last week) with only 7.9 million viewers, a 4 percent dip from its most recent airing. And My Own Worst Enemy saw an even bigger drop in viewership: Only 4.3 million fans tuned in for the Christian Slater action drama on Monday, a loss of 1 million viewers.

All of that cleared the way for ABC to win the evening yet again in total viewers, thanks to a little show called Dancing With the Stars, which averaged 18.6 million viewers, a boost of 1.2 million from last week’s edition. At 9:30 p.m., Samantha Who? benefited from the lack of SNL competition by snagging 11 million pairs of eyeballs, a nice leap up from last week’s 9.7 million. Even Boston Legal got a boost: It drew 8.9 million viewers, a 24 percent bump from last week.

Elsewhere, CBS’ sitcom bonanza held strong as usual, with the 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. block of The Big Bang Theory (10 million) and How I Met Your Mother (9.7 million) posting numbers almost identical to last week’s. At 9 p.m., Two and a Half Men saw a slight uptick of 300k, for an average of 14.6 million viewers. And Worst Week was up 14 percent to reach 9.6 million watchers after struggling last week with 8.4 million. Tallies for Fox’s one-two punch of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (5.2 million) and Prison Break (5.4 million) were basically consistent with last week’s numbers, as were those for the CW’s Gossip Girl (3.1 million) and One Tree Hill
(3 million).

    I hope internet viewing is counted. I am a diehard “Chuck” fan, but watch online. As for “My Own Worst Enemy”, I really like it. I have defected from “CSI Miami”. I can no longer stomach another round of sunglass fondling from David Caruso.

    Prison Break stinks so much it should be gone.Who are the dummies still watching that garbage.

  • Jesse

    I am surprised even 7.9 million people are watching Heroes, the show is a mess.

  • Em

    Why were 14.6 million people watching Two and a Half Men? That frightens me.

  • JJ

    Yeah I think I’m going to give up HEROES in a week or so, the show just isn’t good anymore. Kill off a few characters, theres way too many!

    I use to watch all 3 hours of primetime TV on Monday nights. The only show now that I’m watching on Monday night is Chuck. I’ve defected from Hereos, Prison Break, and The Sarah Conner Chronicles. Maybe if there was something decent on I might watch it but those 3 shows stink and deserve the ratings they get.

  • Ju

    Gave up on Heroes, Prison Break and Terminator… but can’t wait for Chuck. One of the very fiew shows I still watch when it’s on on Tv. Please keep it.

    I divided my time between NBC and FOX last evening (Chuck, Prison Break) and while I forgot why I actually watched FOX usually is the regularity of the commerical breaks (you can watch Dancing with the Stars almost in the shows entirety) and NBC is so off and better online. Maybe I will like Heroes better there and it won’t be as horrible as the headlines are making it out to be. Of course my archaic VCR was reliabilty taping the Big Bang theory and HIMYM in the other room to get me out of a bad mood.

  • Diane

    Anyone watch My Own Worst Enemy? I used to like Christian Slater but I haven’t even thought about flipping it on.

  • Craig

    I’m thisclose to giving up on Heroes. The ratings are right in line with its quality. The show needs improvement and fast. Chuck is the best show on NBC’s Monday schedule and deserves better.

  • Zet

    NBC – don’t drop Chuck. Pleeeaaasse!

    Stop with the negativity for HEROES. I have had it up and over my head. I so love this show with my heart, muscle, blood and bone. I’ll fight tooth and nail for it. There complaints last year and they were fixed. THhere is complaints this year and everyone is jumping off the ship. Stop it and start the healing.

    All of these shows deserve their collective fates. Heroes has had this coming for some time, regardless of well wishing by fandom. Let the next in line cue up and see what they have got, can it get any worse? (Don’t answer that.)
