    Series Premiere Of Nbc's 'race To The Altar' Rings In Win Among Adults 18-49

    SERIES PREMIERE OF NBC'S 'RACE TO THE ALTAR' RINGS IN WIN AMONG ADULTS 18-49 AND IMPROVES SUMMER TIME PERIOD

    BURBANK, Calif. -- July 31, 2003 -- NBC unveiled its new marriage-oriented reality series “Race to the Altar” (8-9 p.m. ET) last night winning among adults 18-49 (tied with ABC’s comedies in the hour), building from its first half-hour to its second -- and improving the adult 18-49 ratings from the typical July performance of the talent competition series “Fame” (8-9 p.m. ET).

    “Race to the Altar” -- which features eight engaged couples that compete through elaborate competitions that force them to work together as a team - achieved a 2.7 rating and 9 share among adults 18-49, an increase of 0.5 of a ratings point from “Fame” average audience delivery during the month. This enabled the series to tie with ABC’s 8-9 p.m. (ET) comedies.

    Likewise, the debut earned a 3.4 rating and 11 share among women 18-49, leading all network competition. The new series also attracted 5.7 million total viewers.

    Equally encouraging, the series premiere revealed a healthy indicator with its higher numbers in the 8:30-9 p.m. half hour with a 3.0 rating (as opposed to a 2.3. for the first half hour) - a whopping increase of 33 percent that enabled it to win adults 18-49 in that half hour.

    I am surprised this show did this well especially in the second half hour. I thought the first challenge was intense but the second part was very slow. The flow was confusing.

    I agree, they need to work on making the pace of the show more consistent. Last week, my breath was taken away by the first physical challenge, then the second half felt interminably slow. There needs to be more excitement in the second half.

    i totally thought so too...but i also thought the second half of this weeks was a little cooler...the gambling aspect was fun at least!

    Yeah, Blondie, I liked the gambling a bit more myself (it added an extra element of excitement and fit in with the Vegas Baby ambience), but as I said in a separate thread, I thought asking etiquette questions was snooze-inducing! What's next? Watching them pick out their china pattern? Open up a joint bank account? Boring!

    They need to spice up the relationship games if they want me to keep caring for the second part of the show (and I don't mean putting Lisa Dergan in sheerer clothing--like that's possible).

    This week, they got both challenges over in the first half hour, and the second half was all commitment drama...Personally, I'm not as entertained by scheming stuff in shows as I am by stunts, so I personally wish they had better content for the challenge portion of the show.
