Ratings: Remodeled Premiere Is Not Pretty, Parenthood Wins 10 O'clock, New Girl Tops Night

The CW’s Remodeled reality series stumbled on the runway right out of the gate, drawing just 700,000 viewers and a 0.3 demo rating. To make but one comparison, that’s down 40 percent from the opener of The CW’s Shedding for the Wedding. And… there’s really not much else to say.

Leading Tuesday in total viewers was an NCIS repeat (13.1 million/2.2), while Fox’s New Girl (6.9 mil/3.4, up a tenth) had the best demos.

    Go Parenthood! What I really want to hear, though, is how Southland did. The season premiere was utterly riveting, one of the best episodes of the show ever, and that is quite an accomplishment considering the show is always completely outstanding.

    • CJ says:

      Parenthood led its hour in the 18-49s, but with numbers that would be lackluster on any night. There hasn’t been a real hit on Tuesday in the last hour of prime time since SVU at its height several seasons ago.

  2. Terry says:

    Glad Glee was steady. It was an excellent episode.

  3. Meg says:

    Happy to see that Glee did well last night!!! One of the best episodes ever!!!

  4. PJ says:

    Glad the Bravermans have been holding down the ratings. It’s a fab show.

  5. maryb says:

    I can not understand why there aren’t more people watching Parenthood. Last night’s episode was fantastic. I watch ALOT of tv, and this show is one of the most consistent in terms of quality writing and acting. Kudos to the writers and the cast, but NBC should be promoting it more. This is a show they should be proud of.

    I’m pretty sure that fans of modelling shows aren’t fans of shows with angry men shoving technology off a desk. Hence the bad ratings.

    • CJ says:

      Next Top Model at least has the competition going for it. Remodeled didn’t even have that, plus the ads didn’t hide the fact that the “star” of the show was an unpleasant person. Makes one wonder who thought that show would draw any audience at all.

      • Alice says:

        Seriously. Who thought that the average American woman was going to feel good watching a show where a jerk tells incredibly thin, pretty women, that not even THEY are good enough to be models?

      • Lisa Gardner says:

        You are crazy.. Remodeled was so entertaining. Loved watching small business owners get help and broaden their business. Not everyone should or can be a model. Paul tells the truth. I liked him and I liked Joseph.
        I will be tuning in next week, for sure.

  7. ggny says:

    What INSANE person think Glee did good last night? Those ratings are HORRIBLE i mean beyond horrible…No new NCIS and Glee cant pull 8mil veiwers and barely a 3.0? I mean last year Glee was almost at 11mil and a 4.0…Those ratings are horrible and anyone that think other wise is crazy

  8. kevin says:

    Too bad I had to watch Southland instead of Parenthood in the 10 p.m. time slot on the same night (Tuesdays).

    CW Remodeled and Paul Fisher REVIEW
    Submitted by Concerned Press (not verified) on January 18, 2012 – 11:41am.

    This show got the lowest overnight rating in CW HISTORY! So telling. Here’s Paul Fisher telling everyone he’s going to change the modeling industry. Then, in classic fashion of Paul Fisher, the entire show is about I, I, I, I, surrounded by a pathetic staff and small business people he thinks he’s going to save. The problems are multiple: There are no likable characters who call Paul on his crap. The is NO value or hope given to the young models he crushes and demeans. And the production qualities are that of a 5th grader. Top it off with Fisher telling press he’s going to change the way the modeling industry works and how people perceive beauty… Then you look at what he does, and he’s promoting exactly what he claims to hate. It’s offensive to look at this bald, billowing, buffoon, tell young hopefuls they are flawed and don’t stand a chance, then have him select a super skinny one as a potential star. Way to tell your audience they should stick their fingers down their throats to try and look like her. I want to stick my finger down my throat, but just because I spent valuable time reviewing this rotten banana. Any advertiser that supports this show should be ashamed and I would not buy their products. It’s an affront to the entire Dove Campaign for beauty which was far more on target. Really sad choice CW.

    This show is clearly a made up, staged, and self-centered. I’m not so sure Mr Fisher isn’t a diagnosed sociopath. CW, Your audience, seems to be telling you, they are smarter than that. Time to show Mr Fisher back the bus back to the dank little corner he belongs as he does nothing but offend.

    • Jon Vasquez says:

      Thought the show was funny and smart. I liked the characters and was interested the whole time. After the show ended, I wanted more. Can’t wait till next week. When the lead guy says exactly what I am thinking, you know you got a hot. That Brita didnt know what she was doing.. Paul just said it like it is and that may have turned her business around.

      I will be tuning in every week to see the drama, the beauty and the success stories.. Exactly what good TV is made of.

    YAY NEW GIRL!!!!!

  11. MA says:

    I’m new to the ratings reports — do you report ratings for the cable shows e.g. White Collar? I know those are a lot lower than network numbers, but would still be interested to see them.

  12. Mark says:

    I thought New Girl was getting a lot more viewers than that? Demos are really what matters but still…

  14. Chris says:

    I don’t get it. Parenthood is such a whiny show with whiny kids and backbone-less parents. Those kids would be grounded… or worse in my family.

  15. dlferriola says:

    Glad Parenthood is winning demos because it is a quality show with great acting and writing.

  16. jackie says:

    Raising Hope was absolutely hilarious last nite! I wish more people were watching.
    And Southland’s premiere episode was awesome. Lucy Liu is a great addition.
    Justified was also stellar last nite; and it has Raylan Givens. Nuff said.

  17. Gerald says:

    I can’t believe they delayed Ringer for that trash, serves them right that it did badly.

  18. Sg.Grant says:

    I think Parenthood is a great show. It is a shame it is in the same winter timeslot as two other great shows, Justified and White Collar.

  19. Marc says:

    Is there anyone other than the idiots at CW who thought Remodelled wouldn’t bomb? I would be firing whoever created the show and those who decided it should make it to the airwaves… seriously, how do these people get paid for making a decision millions of unpaid and untrained people would know not to make?

    • Jim Crane says:

      What were you watching? The show was great. I work in fashion and thought it was spot on. You hated Simon for his honesty, you hated Gordon for his delivery and now you will have Paul for both. Show is great. Way to go CW. Ill be watching.

  20. MA says:

    Thanks Matt! I figured it must be something like that.

  21. Mooshki says:

    LMAO, the plants on this thread are so obvious. “Lisa Gardner,” “Jon Vasquez,” and “Jim Crane,” if you want people to think you’re real fans, try using phrases that are a little less trite. Of course, I doubt the CW is going to spend another $ trying to create buzz for Remodeled after that debut. It was painful to watch.

  22. brian locker says:

    I really enjoyed Remodeled. Paul’s passion for the industry and Joseph’s comments were great. Unlike other modeling shows, Olga showed great compassion for the woman she sent back home from New York. I am looking forward to future shows that follow these young people.
