For NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? there were a total of 6.15 million viewers with a 1.2 rating and a 4 share for the 18-49 year old demographic.
Interesting that while WDYTYA had over 2M fewer viewers than The Defenders, it still garnered the same 1.2/4 Rating/Share:
At 8 p.m., the Eye net’s relocated The Defenders was not half-bad in total viewers, with a dominant 8.72 million. But just a 1.2 rating/4 share among adults 18-49 (tied with NBC’s already renewed Who Do You Think You Are?) could be the kiss of cancellation. (Mark Berman, Media Week)
With WDYTYA renewed for Season 3, I guess we aren’t too worried about ratings but it would be nice to see an increase in interest in the show. It will be interesting to see the ratings on March 11, 2011 when this same episode – Kim Cattrall – is set to be rebroadcast. Stay tuned.
