Ratings: Super Fun Night Ends on a Low Note, Olympics Tick Up, Idol Boys on Par With Girls

Super Fun Night CancelledABC’s Super Fun Night wrapped its freshman run with numbers that were so far from super.

In its second week facing the Winter Olympics and with a repeat for a lead-in, the Rebel Wilson-starrer drew 2.74 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating, plunging 21 and 31 percent week-to-week to hit series lows.

NBC’s coverage of the aforementioned Olympics meanwhile averaged 20.1 mil and a 5.0, improving on its Tuesday tallies but off 9 percent in the demo from the comparable night in Vancouver 2010.

    Let’s hope this means that Super Fun Night is finally done and out of it’s misery. Not that Mixology looks much better…

    I’m not surprised that Criminal Minds fell from the last episode. There is no way it was going to match the inflated numbers from the 200th episode. Also, 2.4 against the Olympics is pretty good.

    These past two weeks have been painful. I can’t wait until the Olympics are over and the regular shows return!

  4. Jon says:

    I predict the Olympics will do well tonight, with the women’s skating finals highlights. I still don’t understand why ABC and FOX have been wasting original episodes against the Olympics, though. CBS (although somewhat down) would still get 10 million viewers if they aired someone reading the phone book, but the other networks aren’t nearly as invincible.

    Remember when February used to be a sweeps month? Sigh…a moment of silence for new tv……. :)

  6. They should have handled it like Brooke Elliott did on Drop Dead Diva. You just didn’t notice her weight because she was so confident and sexy, but not in an obvious or desperate way.

  7. As much as I like Rebel Wilson she’s good in small doses. I can’t see SFN getting a season 2.

    Super Fun Night was up against the Olympics and had a Modern Family repeat as a lead-in last week too. I wonder if the drop in ratings had anything to do with people thinking last week was the season finale instead of this week. I honestly thought Richard kissing Kimmie was a nice cliffhanger-y kind of finale and wouldn’t have been surprised to see them end things there.

    • Kimm says:

      Yes. They should have ended things there, but they didn’t. I am not happy with the real ending.

      • JLK says:

        I think they saw the writing on the wall and wanted to wrap things up as neatly and as quickly as possible. It wasn’t perfect, but everyone got something for the win column. I preferred it to an unresolved cliffhanger, but I can fully understand why you wouldn’t be happy. I think it’s clear they would have made different choices for the story if they weren’t running scared from the cancellation bear.

    ABC and other networks are to blame for shows failing, one moment the show is a new episode the next it may be off for a few weeks. Then they expect the viewer to know that it will be on the next week even though every other show that day is a rerun. Really? Really? Come on that is what is happening to a lot of shows. Great shows. Viewer settle on watching something either than their favorite shows because they have no clue when exactly it will be on. Then the networks cancel the show because of lack of viewers. Maybe just maybe if they took a moment to show a commercial letting the viewer know when the show will be on it would help. Changing time slots, skipping weeks for stupid award shows hardly anyone watches makes viewers turn to cable network shows that maybe on at the same time. I hate this reality tv is taking over and it is not for the better.
