Afternoon News: November 1, 2011

Holy November! Where did the year go!?!?  Also, slow news day!

1.  Season Premieres/TV Tonight!  The end of baseball continues to bring rewards.  USA's Covert Affairs returns tonight for the end of its season run (you have to love the USA Netowrk bifurcated season)!  Fox returns Glee (featuring the debut of The Glee Project's Damian McGinty) and New Girl! Last but certainly not least, Gibbs' and Fornell's shared ex-wife makes her long awaited appearance tonight on NCIS

2. Ratings!  After getting bumped around because of the World Series, Terra Nova seems to have lost any ratings mojo it had garnered through early October.  The sci-fi show pulled a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.3 million viewers (off 25% from its last airing 2 weeks ago).  But, it had company in so far as even juggernaut CBS had depressed numbers, with How I Met Your Mother off 5% an Two and a Half Men down 15% week over week. The biggest loser of the night though was Brian Williams' new show, Rock Center which pulled a 1.0 and only 4 million viewers ... for its premiere! Ouch!

3.  FX has ordered a second season of American Horror Story! TV Watcher is happy and disturbed all at the same time!

4.  We are not talking about the collapse of the Kardashian/Humpheries "marriage". If I was a guest at that sham, I'd be writing a formal demand of return letter for whatever gift I brought.

  1. So excited for tv tonight! We'll see if The New Girl spark survived the hiatus. Also hoping that Glee's leprechaun gives the show some luck, and the stories keep improving. Check back for our full analysis of all things Tuesday night later this week!
