    Fox dating show 'Mr. Personality' has strong premiere

    Fox dating show 'Mr. Personality' has strong premiere

    NEW YORK (AP) Mr. Personality, the Fox reality dating show with Monica Lewinsky as host, displayed a dominant personality with viewers for its premiere Monday night, according to Nielsen Media Research figures.

    In its time period, Mr. Personality placed second, with 12.2 million viewers, to CBS' back-to-back Everybody Loves Raymond episodes, which averaged 13.8 million viewers. NBC's Third Watch and ABC's The Practice ranked third and fourth, respectively.

    In the 18-to-49-year-old demographic, Mr. Personality decisively won, with a 5.7 rating and 14 share, compared to CBS (4.7 rating, 12 share), NBC (4.1 rating, 10 share), and ABC (2.7 rating, 7 share). A ratings point represents 1,067,000 households, or 1% of the nation's estimated 106.7 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show.

    Mr. Personality features a single woman wooed by 20 masked men, with Lewinsky by her side for support. Lewinsky first gained national attention as a White House intern who had a sexual relationship with President Clinton.

    I think this will change drastically without the AI lead in.

    I'm not sure about that. Fox seems to have their finger on the pulse of America's guilty pleasures.

    I think people just tuned in to see how freaky these guys would look in masks. Now that that's out of the way, I don't see any reason to continue watching!

    I probably won't continue tuning in. Not that THAT matters

    I had no previous interest in MP and probably would not have watched if it were not for the AI lead-in. However, I got suckered into the first show, and will probably tune in next week out of curiousity. I'd rather watch this rather than the Bachelor, which I think has gotten stale.

    Hi.

    I always liked it better when a woman is in charge of picking the men instead of the other way around. The Bachelorette definitely tuned me in, as Mr. Personality did too. Perhaps women's instincts are sharper than men when it comes to picking soulmates...the men always choose the girl from sex appeals, whereas the women choose between a balance of many factors and elements. And since most of the viewers watching this genre of show are female, it is better to think from a woman's point of view.

    Yeah, I'll probably get suckered into next week.
    Remember, I'm not laughing at you. I'm laughing with you.

    Getting suckered is only the beginning

    And that is precisely how networks get their audience.

    I agree with you about this latest "Bachelor." He is lame, the show is getting old and we are all looking for new guilty pleasures.

    Mr. Personality needs to switch gears now to make it interesting. We've already had a taste of controversy with the Mascot flouncing off in a stew. Let's hope that each week, some guy does something more shocking than the rose ceremony.

    see, I didn't watch the AI special but did tune in for this.

    I'll probably watch again next week.
    I'm intrigued to see what other mind games the dark green number 17 guy tries out on her.
