The nine highest-rated canceled shows

terra-nova-finale

More than any year in recent memory, the survival of shows this season did not hinge on ratings.

You had Fox’s Fringe getting renewed for a final GTFO season with only 4.2 million viewers and slight 1.6 average rating. Then you had Terra Nova getting axed with 10.8 million viewers and a 3.6 rating. The biggest mitigating factor was a show’s cost — which usually rises along with its age — along with the difficulty of a time period, who owns the program, how intensely critics and fans feel about the series and, believe it or not, whether a network’s executives like the show. Here are the top nine highest-rated canceled shows this season:

1. Rob (CBS: 12 million viewers, 3.7 adults 18-49 rating): A 3.7? If NBC had a freshman comedy with a 3.7 average, it would run the show five nights a week this fall (Community was renewed with almost half this rating). Bully for CBS that their table scraps have these kind of numbers. The issue here was Rob Schneider’s comedy was shedding too much of its massive Big Bang Theory lead-in, and was trending the wrong direction. CBS suspects the time slot can do better.

'GCB': 'You reap what you sow' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

GCB_180.jpg

If you thought Amanda’s (Leslie Bibb) former classmates were vicious last week on GCB, wait until you see what they have in store this week for their former tormenter. Hint: They’re setting their sights on someone else!

While reviews were decidedly mixed about this satirical comedy, having seen the next episode, I can promise more of the same — backstabbing, laughs, questionable morals, and some heart — and that’s a good thing. It’s certainly not everyone’s cup of sweet tea, but the Texas-set comedy has in one-liners what the characters have in plastic body parts. See the exclusive clip below for more on that.

'GCB' premiere ratings just OK

ABC’s newest drama series GCB got off to a merely OK start on Sunday night.

Though GCB (7.6 million viewers, 2.2) posted the network’s best 10 p.m. series rating since October and ranked second in the hour, the Texas-based soap was down 29 percent from the debut of Pan Am in the slot.

Nonetheless, ABC won the night thanks to the return of Once Upon a Time (10.6 million, 3.4), up 10 percent fro a couple weeks ago. And Desperate Housewives (8.2 million, 2.5) up 14 percent. READ FULL STORY
