Ratings: Sarah Chalke's Parents Experiences Modest Dip, Nashville and Idol Tick Up

How to Live With Your ParentsIn its second week, ABC’s How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) dipped a far-from-catastrophic 14 percent, while Nashville grew and American Idol picked up a little steam.

With 7.3 million viewers and a 2.5 demo rating, the Sarah Chalke comedy retained a decent 87 percent of its premiere-week audience. Some of that erosion can be attributed to lead-in Modern Family (10.2 million, 3.8 rating), which was down 10 percent.

At 10 pm, Nashville (6 million/1.8) was up 9 percent in viewers and 6 percent in the demo.

Over on Fox, American Idol stopped the bleeding with 12 million viewers (+4 percent) and a 3.2 in the demo (+7 percent).

At NBC, audiences feasted on Hannibal leftovers. An encore broadcast of the horror series’ premiere retained 97 percent of its Law & Order encore lead-in with 3.1 million sets of eyeballs and a .9 in the demo.

Lastly, CBS’ Survivor dipped 4 percent, Criminal Minds grew 7 percent and CSI surged 14 percent.

The CW was in rerun-mode.

    Hopefully HANNIBAL can rise in numbers. It’s a pretty good show and since only 13 episodes a season are planed, I’d like to enjoy this show another year for mid-season.

  2. Mike says:

    That decent for HTLWYPFTRYL, and if it can stay above a 2.0, I’d expect a renewal.

  3. Elyse says:

    I have to say that I was totally impressed with last night’s How to Live.. The premiere episode was not great but it improved 100%. Last week they didn’t get a smile from me, last night I literally laughed out loud several times. That schtick when Polly was getting the MRI had me in stitches. Sarah Clarke was phenomenal. The jokes weren’t delivered like punchlines. There was a continuation throughout the entire episode that was missing last week. ABC needs to renew this show. If they renewed the abomination that was Apt. 23, they can renew this. Nashville makes me sad. I wish the ratings were higher. Here’s hoping for a renewal!

    When NBC crime shows are in repeats, CBS crime shows will go up, so no surprise there. I also hope Hannibal is a success for NBC; it’s extremely well done.

    hart of dixie???

  8. Chicago Dan says:

    CSI surged 14 percent.- more than AI and Nashville. How about some props for the show that keeps going in S13!

  9. Nero theTVFiddler says:

    Good news at ABC – if this ABC Wed. lineup can keep it going for a couple of more weeks, I think we’ll see renewals for Suburgatory, Live w/Parent and Nashville. Nashville is headed in the right direction – up.

  11. Nashville is a good show but it can be fix on, I hate how none of the stories really connect. Everyone have thier own story and its too much to really care for. Even tho Rayna & Juilette work togther they still seem like thier stories do not connect. Also the time slot is aweful for it move it to sundays please.

    Removed How to Live . . . from my DVR series queue. It looks like the writers got nothing after the concept.
