Well, the first head-to-head with The Olympics jugernaut(sp?).
Looks like preliminary numbers are 5.6/9, so a definite dip from the average of about 6.5/11 that we've had in the first 6 weeks. Looks like 15% or so drop. Which could send the viewer numbers down to around 9.0million. I guess, "oh well, them's the breaks!" needs to be our attitude during weeks 7 and 8 vs. Greece.
The bright side (since my cup is always at least half-full).......
So far (Mon and Tue) TAR5's normal competition is seeing equal erosion in numbers.
Ignore The Olympics, since they will be the highest viewed program each night, and the top seven for the week.
Looks like TAR5 (5.6) will be #1 for Tue. Followed closely by BB5 (5.6), and NCIS (5.4) will perform admirably too.
And, on Mon the only competition is again all CBS. Looks like CSI:M (6.4) will probably sneak past TAR5 in viewers. And Raymond (6.1) and 2.5Men (6.1) may or may not, it'll be close.
