Ratings: Winter Wipeout Looks Icy Hot

ABC’s number-crunchers are having an ice day in the wake of Wipeout‘s winter edition opening strongly.

Averaging a series-high 11.6 million total viewers and a 3.7 rating, the grimace-inducing spectacle gave ABC its first demo win of the season against CBS’s Thursday comedy block, and bested $#*! My Dad Says‘ audience.

Elsewhere on the night:

* In the 8 o’clock hour, The Big Bang Theory was up seven percent in the demos (with a night-leading 4.4) and four percent in viewers (14 mil), while $#*! matched its last fresh outing.

* As usual, Grey’s Anatomy topped the demos at 9 pm, and CSI easily led in total viewers (14.2 million vs. 11.6 mil).

* The Mentalist was the night’s most watched program with 14.8 million total viewers, and edged out Private Practice (7.78 million viewers) in the demos.

Enough about cold, hard numbers, though — what did you watch on Thursday night?

  1. Private Practice is one of the best shows on TV. I don’t get why it’s not higher up in the ratings. I think they are playing Charlotte and Cooper perfectly. Amelia is a riot. Her advice to Nai and Addison was spot on :)

    Hockey!! Can’t help it I’m Canadian

    I watch PPP for Addison who was one of the best Greys characters ever. The rest of the show is missable.

    Watched both GA and PP. Both were excellent. For once.

    Big Bang, second half of Wipeout, Grey’s and PP. Easiest thursday night I’ve had in a while. Two weeks from now most of the shows’ll be back and I’ll be switching back and forth and PVRing the rest.

    Grey was amazing last nite with them dealing with senseless shooting & killing of innocent people which was reminiscent of what they went thru. They came full circle and were healed. Great episode. PP dealt with overbearing mother & Addison & Charlotte trying to heal from her rape. Really good also.

    Grey’s Anatomy was fantastic last night. This season is on fire. One of the best seasons in years.
