NBC and Fox had their lowest ratings among young viewers since at least 1987,
when Nielsen Media Research began precise people meter measurements. ABC tied
its record-low rating among those same 18-to-49-year-old viewers, bottoming out
at the same level it hit two other weeks this summer.
Now it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out why TV ratings have been in the crapper. As long as networks continue to miss the mark on what viewers want to see, expect a lot of fantastic flops to be quickly greenlit and rushed into production. At least the tragedy of it all will be entertaining to witness.
