The CW inks five-year streaming deal with Hulu

CBS and Warner Bros. announced today that The CW and Hulu have struck a five-year licensing deal to allow the website to stream CW shows on Hulu and Hulu Plus. This encompasses network tentpoles 90210, America’s Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries, as well as Ringer, Hart of Dixie, The Secret Circle, and Nikita. Under the agreement, up to five in-season episodes will only be featured on Hulu Plus for eight days following the broadcast, at which point they will be available on the ad-supported free Hulu site. “The CW programming is a great example of the kind of in-season content we want to make available,” said Hulu’s SVP of Content Andy Forssell. “Making these shows available on Hulu and Hulu Plus will allow new and existing fans to get their fix of The CW’s great shows anytime and anywhere.”

Fall 2010 ratings: CBS dominates with 'Survivor' and 'The Defenders'; ABC's 'Modern Family' was the night's top-rated show in adults 18-49

insider-ratingsImage Credit: Bob D'Amico/ABC; Art Streiber/NBC; Sonja Flemming/CBSThe move to Wednesdays has done little to shake Survivor out of the victory circle: The latest installment that features ex-NFL coach Jimmy Johnson averaged 12.46 million viewers last night and helped CBS to win the night in viewers and most key demographics, including adults 18-49. In fact, CBS stayed strong throughout the night, despite heavy competition from the return of Modern Family on ABC (which won its timeslot in adults 18-49 and viewers with 12.60 million). Criminal Minds at 9 — which featured Tim Curry as one freaky looking bad guy — averaged 14.05 million viewers while the debut of The Defenders with Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell averaged an impressive 12.08 million.

But oh, how that Best Comedy Emmy helped to boost Modern Family! The show’s second season debut averaged a stunning 5.0 rating/14 share among adults 18-49 — up 19 percent versus its series premiere a year ago. It also won its 9 p.m. timeslot in most demos and viewers, and was the top-rated show of the evening. Unfortunately, the rest of the laughers in ABC’s comedy block didn’t fare as well, but they should still be celebrating over at the alphabet network: The Middle averaged 8.81 million (a series high) and the new Better With You lured 7.96 million. Courteney Cox-Arquette and her buddies on Cougar Town averaged 8.34 million. Overall, ABC tied NBC for second place in adults 18-49 last night and came in third in viewers (7.92 million).

Speaking of NBC, did you catch J.J. Abrams’ new show Undercovers? Only 8.5 million sampled the Hart to Hart-type drama at 8 p.m.. The two-hour start of Law & Order: SVU was up 23 percent versus last season’s one-hour premiere in adults 18-49 and averaged 10 million viewers. And Fox aired the two-hour premiere of Hell’s Kitchen, which ranked No. 1 among adults 18-34 and posted a 6 percent gain in eyeballs (6.56 million).

On the CW, America’s Next Top Model was flat versus last week among adults 18-34 (1.4/5), but the new Hellcats showed a 6 percent gain among women 18-34. The CW averaged 2.56 million viewers last night.

Fall 2010 ratings: 'Hellcats' and 'America's Next Top Model' debut to mixed results

CW unveiled a new season of America’s Next Top Model and its fresh drama Hellcats on Wednesday, but to mixed results: The reality show was down 13% among adults 18-49 versus last year’s premiere and was the show’s lowest-rated season opener ever. It averaged nearly 2.9 million viewers during the 8 p.m. time slot, which was dominated by CBS’ Big Brother among viewers and adults 18-49.

As for Hellcats, which averaged nearly 3 million viewers, the cheerleading show won its time slot among female teens and was up 100% from the Beautiful Life premiere on 9/16/2009 among adults 18-49. But it was down 8% from last fall’s Melrose Place rollout and down 43% from The Vampire Diaries debut in the same demo. Still, this show is marketed for young viewers so CW should be cautiously optimistic about the drama’s start.

Overall, Fox won the night among adults 18-49, thanks to another strong performance by Masterchef while NBC, buoyed by the final episodes of America’s Got Talent, won the night in viewers (8.36 million).

Ratings: Decent debuts for ABC's 'Hank,' 'The Middle'

The second Wednesday night of the official TV season saw the debut of two more ABC comedies — the Kelsey Grammer-led Hank at 8 p.m. and the Patricia Heaton-starring The Middle at 8:30 p.m. And you know what? Both won their time slots, besting shows such as NBC’s Mercy, CBS comedies The New Adventures of Old Christine and Gary Unmarried, as well as Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance and The CW’s America’s Next Top Model. Not a bad showing, but we’ll see how they hold up in subsequent weeks.

The two new ABC comedies that debuted last week — Modern Family at 9 p.m. and Cougar Town at 9:30 p.m. — both dropped, as is usual after a premiere. Modern Family lost 21 percent of last week’s audience, while Cougar Town fell by 19 percent. Not too alarming, but they’ll have to keep up to be deemed a success. Both placed second in the 9 p.m. hour, behind CBS powerhouse Criminal Minds, which lost 2.2 million viewers from its premiere last week but was still the most-watched show of the evening. In the same hour, Fox’s buzzy Glee actually rebounded from its low of 6.6 million viewers last week, adding 700K gawkers who tuned in for Kristin Chenoweth’s guest appearance.

In the 10 p.m. hour, CBS was also the winner with CSI: NY drawing 12.9 viewers, which lost 15 percent of its premiere-week audience. Second was ABC’s Eastwick, which fell by 22 percent. And finally, at the bottom of the heap was The Jay Leno Show, which drew just 6.0 million viewers.

Ratings: Fox wins Wednesday with 'Lie To Me,' 'Idol'

Fox may have expected a ratings bump for Lie To Me, having made the decision to air original programming instead of Pres. Barack Obama’s press conference, but Lie To Me‘s total viewership was consistent with last week’s episode. Meanwhile, the American Idol results show audience was down about two million from its past two Wednesday airings, but still blew away the rest of the 9 p.m. hour. ABC’s struggling new cop series The Unusuals saw a small increase in viewership this week.

Ratings: Fox wins Wednesday with 'American Idol' and a bloody 'Bones'

Fox won Wednesday night easily, this time thanks to the powerhouse combination of Bones (up 17 percent from last week) and the American Idol results show. The second episode of ABC’s new quirky-cop series The Unusuals lost only 8 percent of last week’s debut audience — not bad! (A 10-15 percent drop is considered normal.) Meanwhile, ABC’s new comedy Better Off Ted, which had dipped a little last week, upped its total viewership by 8 percent. Scrubs‘ viewership was up from last week, too, by 15 percent.

Ratings: 'American Idol' scores, 'The Unusuals' struggles on Wednesday

The American Idol results show dominated Wednesday night’s ratings, as usual, and the CBS lineup put in some typically solid results. But there was little good news for ABC, whose sitcoms Scrubs and Better Off Ted lost half a million viewers from last week. Lost, too, was down 14 percent from last week, and the debut of the cop series The Unusuals drew a mediocre 6.8 million viewers (88 percent of its lead-in audience from 9 p.m.’s Lost). Fox’s Lie To Me hit another all-time low in total viewership, while NBC’s Life was down 25 percent from last week’s new episode.

Ratings: 'American Idol' wins Wednesday, 'I Get That a Lot' takes its time slot

Fox’s American Idol results show dominated Wednesday night as usual, but good news for NBC’s Life, which aired in the same time slot as Idol: Total viewership was up 22 percent from last week. ABC’s Better Off Ted
also has reason to celebrate, as viewership was up slightly from last
week; that’s terrific news for a new series, and especially a new
sitcom. CBS’ celebrities-undercover April Fool’s Day special, I Get That a Lot, won the 8-9 p.m. hour, pushing Fox’s Lie To Me to its lowest ratings all season. The CW’s America’s Next Top Model gained back the million viewers it had lost last week (likely thanks to last week’s Idol performance night occurring on Wednesday instead of Tuesday). The series finale of ABC’s recently canceled Life on Mars drew in about a half million more pairs of eyes than it had over the last few weeks. R.I.P., Michael Imperioli’s ‘stache.

Ratings: 'American Idol' gains viewers, wins Wednesday

The Mo(Town), the Merrier: Fox’s two-hour American Idol performance show trounced the competition Wednesday night, upping its audience by 18 percent from its first half hour to the fourth. Idol‘s overall 25.6 million-viewer average was 7 percent higher than last week’s performance-night average. Meanwhile, a Survivor recap special on CBS may have drawn viewers away from the other networks’ new offerings: The CW’s America’s Next Top Model lost a whopping 16 percent of its audience from last week, while NBC’s Chopping Block continues to tank. The cooking reality show lost 13 percent of last week’s viewership and is down 35 percent since its March 11 series premiere. The second ep of ABC’s new comedy Better Off Ted is down 15 percent since last week’s debut, and Lost is down slightly from last week’s showing.

Ratings: 'American Idol' leads Wednesday as ABC dramas suffer

Last night’s American Idol elimination performed its usual feat of sweeping Wednesday night. Meanwhile, ABC’s new Portia de Rossi comedy Better Off Ted debuted to a decent 5.6 million, but the net’s hour-longs took a dip: Life lost 20 percent of last week’s audience, while Lost‘s total viewership for last night’s episode was down 14 percent from its previous new episode and down 20 percent from its season 5 premiere. The CW’s Top Model lost 20 percent from last week as well.

'America's Next Top Model' will require models to be 5'7" or shorter for new cycle

Contestants for the 13th cycle of The CW’s America’s Next Top Model will be required to be at or below five feet, seven inches (5′ 7″) in height for the first time in the show’s history. According to a network press release, previous seasons have set 5′ 7″ as the minimum height, but host Tyra Banks is quoted in the release exclaiming that the fall 2009 cycle will be “a year for the shorter model!” The official ANTM application available at The CW’s website, however, clearly states that “Producers reserve the right to make case-by-case exceptions…[and] are looking for a variety of models, including plus size models.” Open calls for the 13th cycle begin Feb. 28 in Miami, Fla., and will hit San Franscisco, Washington D.C., New York City, Dallas, Chicago, and Los Angeles over the course of March.
