Gee, what would have happened if it were opposite an original of Glee? The premiere of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC only managed to post a 1.4 rating/4 share among adults 18-49 — down 36% from last season’s Sunday premiere on March 21, according to early results. It averaged a 5.3 million and was ultimately crushed in viewers by NCIS (19.2 million) and The Biggest Loser (which averaged 7.1 million over two hours).
CBS ended up winning the night in the demo (3.0/8) and viewers (15.5 million), with NCIS earning a 3.8/12, followed by NCIS: LA (3.3/9, 15.3 million) and The Good Wife (2.0/5, 10.9 million). NBC came in second in the demo (2.4/7) with Loser earning a 2.6/7 and Parenthood posting a 5% gain to a 2.0/5 (you just had to have sex, didn’t you Haddie?). The drama attracted 5 million.
ABC finished third in key demo because of the Dancing With The Stars results show (3.0/8, 15.4 million) and Body of Proof (up 4% from last week to a 2.5/7, and 11.1 million). Fox aired repeats of Glee and Raising Hope, though that was an original of Traffic Light (not that you saw it: it ony posted a .9/2 and 2.2 million). CW also aired reruns.
