Wipeout Ratings Low

ABC’s Wipeout this Sunday drew 3.2 million total viewers and a 0.8 demo rating, tumbling 22 and 27 percent to series lows.

Leading out of that, Rising Star (3.5 mil/0.9) slipped 12 percent and a tenth to hit season lows.

Over on CBS, Big Brother (6.5 mil/2.1) ticked down a tenth but led the night in both measures. Unforgettable (6.4 mil/1.0) and Reckless (4.2 mil/0.6) both held steady, though the latter was edged out in the demo by a Chicago Something rerun on NBC.

    After watching American Ninja Warrior -how anyone finds Wipeout as entertaining is beyond me. It’s seriously not funny or competative. Just a mindless hour of entertainment.

    Dumb move to put Wipeout on Sundays.

    • Moment says:

      It was on a decline prior to the Sunday move anyway. Sundays at 8pm(Though it was on at 7 too) is a good family timeslot, it worked for TAR for a long while. And it has worked for OUAT too.

    The only good ABC show is Black Box and they threw it away in a crappy time slot with no ads. ABC is now famous as the network unable to support a drama.

    • Moment says:

      Where are they famous for this? 4 well supported dramas come to mind when thinking of ABC, Greys Anatomy, Scandal, OUAT, Castle. Please enlighten me.

  4. Oh dear, what a shame. How sad. Maybe if even less people watch the networks might stop making this rubbish.

    They really, really need to do a ‘Celebrity Wipeout’ special. Been hoping for that for years.

    Rising Star would probably do better if Kesha was replaced. She is so annoying and adds nothing to making this show like the The Voice
