Ratings: Whispers Slips to Season Lows

Whispers Ratings

ABC’s The Whispers — which finally tacked on a revealing scene that actually had been in the series’ original pilot — drew 3.4 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating this Monday, down 13 percent and two tenths to season lows.

Opening ABC’s night, The Bachelorette (6.6 mil/1.9) dipped a tenth.

Over on NBC, American Ninja Warrior (6.7 mil/1.9) and The Island (3.4 mil/1.1) each added a few eyeballs plus a tenth in the demo.

Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance (3.3 mil/0.9) was steady week-to-week, but versus last year’s callbacks episode was down 25 and 36 percent.

    Whispers is on my DVR, Teen Wolf owns my Mondays at ten and I have a whole set up that I haven’t fully worked out where I can ff through most commercials. The Whispers will likely help me do that on Tuesdays now.

  2. Gerald says:

    Sorry The Whispers you got put on the DVR so I could watch Teen Wolf live.

  3. EJ says:

    I gave up on The Whispers after two episodes. It just wasn’t drawing me in as much as I liked the basic premise. Milo Ventimiglia just doesn’t do it for me as a seris lead, either.

    Lily Rabe needs to sprint back to AHS now.

    The Whispers is an okay show but not great. I love Milo Ventimiglia and Barry Sloane so that makes it worth watching IMO.

    I watched CBS reruns. The taste of the viewing public never ceases to amaze me, in a bad way. Whispers drops while other junk went up??

      Boller, the majority of the shows reviewed on this site would lead me to believe the only taste some viewers have is in their mouth. Look at me I can sing, dance, live off the land, etc. The word quality seldom figures in.

  7. Ken says:

    What was the tacked on scene that was originally in the pilot?

    • Chris says:

      I think it was the final scene of last night’s episode where Wes dug up the big blue glowing rock (which could be Drill) in the African dessert. Am I right, Matt?

  8. Pat says:

    I am really enjoying the Whispers. It is a good summer show for me, along with Major Crimes and Murder in the First, which ends up on my DVR.

  9. Valerie T says:

    Whispers has been such a disappointment. I’m still watching, but only because those kids are all so darn cute.

  10. James says:

    Not enough sympathetic characters to gain much vicarious enjoyment from the show, a stronger atmosphere of conspiracy like X Files would have helped as well.
