Ratings: Saving Hope Returns from Break With Bump, CW Sing-Off Has Little Next Appeal

NBC’s Saving Hope showed signs of life on Thursday night.

UPDATE: After flirting with season highs based on the fast nationals, the Nielsen finals show the summertime medical drama delivering its largest audience since June 14, hitting 3.3 million total viewers — up 17 percent from its last pre-Olympics outing.

Hope’s 0.6 demo rating, meanwhile, held steady, matching its best performance since June 28.

Also on the upside this Thursday was Big Brother, which with 6.3 mil and a 2.3 hit its best numbers since the season opener, up 25 percent from its previous, Olympics-tinged outing.

ABC’s Rookie Blue, at 10 o’clock, drew 5 mil and a 1.3, up 31 and 18 percent week-to-week but 13 percent shy of its last pre-Olympics performance.

Among the night’s premieres, ABC’s Time Machine Chef (?!) at 9 pm placed fourth in audience (with 3.5 mil) and third in the demo (1.2), while The CW’s The Next: Yada Yada Yada opened to fewer than 850,000 viewers and a 0.3 rating, losing audience from its repeat lead-in of Oh Sit.

    Isn’t Time Machine Chef just a blatant, blatant rip-off of whatever Food Network show it is that has chefs cooking in the middle of nowhere with barely any equipment?

    And more importantly, Supersizers from Cooking Channel.

    I love the Supersizers!

    I’ve really grown to like Saving Hope. I hope it has a shot at renewal.

    Saving Hope will def be renewed in Canada so its just a matter of NBC broadcasting in the states. I like it so here’s hoping!

    NBC is populated by massive amounts of idiots!

    From the total Obama/gay/atheist BS bias and false cherry picked out of context LIES & Deceptions on MSNBC to it’s idiocy for programming.

    Saving Hope was just to intelligent for a network bent on exhibiting stupidity and short and short on global warming & PC pandering.
