For Saturday, July 11, 2015 (Posted on July 12, 2015)
The Alphabet Network finished #1 on Saturday with a complete schedule of reruns. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ finished with an average 3.49 million viewers. At 9P, another rerun of ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ finished with an average 3.70 million viewers. At 10P, yet another rerun of ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ finished with a network evening high of 4.13 million viewers.
The Peacock Network had the top program and nothing else. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’ finished with an average 1.72 million viewers indicating that Bear can’t hit a fastball as it got beat by baseball by more than 1 million viewers. Then at 9P, a rerun of ‘Dateline’ finished its two-hour airing with an average 4.284 million viewers, the top performance of the evening on any network.
The Animal Network of Broadcast finished Saturday with baseball. After a terrific third round of the ‘Ladies U.S. Open Championships’ from Lancaster, PA, Murdoch’s Minions presented regional baseball. At 8P, ‘MLB’ featuring the New York Yankees losing to the Boston Red Sox (5-3) behind Eduardo Rodriguez pitching at Fenway Park in Boston finished with an average 2.78 million viewers. Yet the game of the night was in Los Angeles where the Milwaukee Brewers behind the rookie pitcher Taylor Jungmann beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 7-1 (see http://wwe.overtheshouldermlb.wordpress.com).
The Tiffany Network got tarnished on Saturday with original programming of two cancelled shows which proved they should have been cancelled after their first episodes. At 8P, an original episode of ‘The Millers’ barely beat a rerun of ‘Bear’ with an average 1.84 million viewers. Then at 830P, those, other than family and friends who watched yet another episode of ‘The Millers’ drew an average 1.79 million viewers, just barely ahead of ‘Bear’ running wild. Then at 9P, a new episode of ‘The McCarthys’ jumped up to 1.85 million viewers. At 930P, inevitably, another episode of ‘The McCarthys’ proved beyond a reasonable doubt that it was a terrible program with an average 1.71 million viewers, finishing even below that of the earlier episode of ‘Bear’. Finally at 10P, while so many had fled the network after their double trip to the Millers and the McCarthys, a rerun of ’48 Hours’ finished with an average 2.41 million viewers, and believe it or not, this was the top program over at Les’ World on Saturday.
