Ouch. The second hour-long episode of Paula Abdul’s new show “Live to Dance”, suffered a significant ratings decrease last night.
For its second outing, the CBS reality competition delivered 7.8 million viewers and a 1.8 preliminary adults 18-49 rating Wednesday night. That’s down 25% from Tuesday’s premiere and ranked the show third in the advertiser-coveted adult demo at 8 p.m.
The People’s Choice Awards didn’t fare well either, compared to last year.
That lead-in didn’t help CBS’ annual telecast of the People’s Choice Awards (9.5 million, 2.7), which fell 21% from last year as Twilight eclipsed competitors (full winners list and the most awkward moments here). This is the second lowest-rated People’s Choice yet.Overall, ABC and NBC tied to win the night.
That does not bode well for Paula. There could be a blood bath By the time Live to Dance airs against the Idol premiere on Jan. 19.
