Ratings: Fred Willard Show Drops, L.A. Complex Plunges, Plus Raw Records and Syfy Premieres

Get More: Ratings

Is there no such thing as bad press? ABC’s Fred Willard-hosted Trust Us With Your Life improv series this Tuesday drew barely 1.9 million viewers while mustering a 0.6 demo rating, down 28 and 33 percent week-to-week and letting slip from its grip about a third of its sitcom repeat lead-in.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, America’s Got Talent held steady with 10.3 million total viewers (topping the night) and a 2.6 demo rating (tying Fox’s food shows for the win)…. Hell’s Kitchen (6.2 mil/2.6) and MasterChef (6.2 mil/2.6) each ticked up a tenth in the demo…. The CW’sL.A. Complex plunged 33 percent, to under 400,000 viewers (!) and a 0.2 rating (!!)… and ABC’s NY Med (4.3 mil/1.1) dipped about 10 percent while Love in the Wild (4.5 mil/1.3) was flat in its finale.

A few other ratings headlines for you:

* USA Network’s presentation of WWE Monday Night Raw‘s 1,000th episode was the most-watched three-hour Raw ever (with over 6 million total viewers), while the “regular episode” that ran from 9 to 11 pm commanded the largest audience (6.3 mil) for a two-hour Raw in 10 years.

* Also on Monday, Syfy’s Warehouse 13 returned to an audience of 2.1 million, with about a mil landing in the 18-49 sweet spot — marking gains of 31 and 23 percent versus the previous season’s finale. Likewise, Alphas (1.7 million total viewers, 725 in the 18-49 demo) surged 50 and 24 percent from its freshman closer.

    • I know! I liked the first season, but it seemed kind of “meh.” Monday’s episode? That blew me away. It seemed like it was finally reaching it’s potential.

  • glad to see the good ratings for warehouse 13, the effects may not be great but the acting and writing has been fantastic the past few years

  • Although I enjoyed Warehouse 13, it seemed that they tried to cram too much into the premiere episode and took themselves too seriously (Eddie McClintock excluded). I also watched in HD for the first time and some of the CGI looked a little funky.

    LOVED Alphas. Very strong first ep and looking forward to the remainder of the season.

  • LA Complex is surprisingly good. I hope it’s doing well enough in Canada to keep going.

  • Poor LA Complex. It deserves better than this. It’s a good show but the mass out there just isnt’ connecting with it.

  • The LA Complex is an AMAZING show! I think the CW didn’t advertise enough for it.

  • I love the LA Complex, it better not get cancelled because people are too lame to watch or don’t know about it. Gah. And why isn’t it on right now!?!?!
