The poorly sampled conclusion of ABC’s two-night Titanic miniseries dragged GCB down under with it on Sunday night, pulling the freshman sudser to series lows.
Titanic‘s finale drew 4.17 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating — on par with Saturday night’s three-hour launch — putting it in last place behind even Fox cartoons. Leading out of that, GCB did 4.5 mil and a 1.5, down 14 and 21 percent week-to-week.
Elsewhere on Sunday:
* The Amazing Race (9.2 mil/2.5), The Good Wife (10 mil/1.8) and Celebrity Apprentice (6.6 mil/2/1) were all flat.
* NBC bubble show Harry’s Law (8.1 mil/0.9) dipped 10 percent in the demo.
* The Simpsons (4.9 mil/2.2) “Lost” 8 percent, while Bob’s Burgers (3.8 mil/1.8) and Cleveland Show (4.3 mil/2.0) were on the upside.
* CBS’ NYC 22 debuted to 8.9 million viewers and a 1.5 rating, improving on the CSI: Miami finale’s total audience but down 12 percent in the demo. The rookie cop drama led the hour in audience, but trailed far behind the second hour of Celeb Apprentice in the demo.
