It’s tough out there for a new TV show. Creators put their hearts and souls into pilots, introducing their baby bird-like new series into the big, harsh world, all the while, hoping and praying their baby can fly. Well, as you know, some shows flourish and some shows plummet. Others glide along, barely getting by or delaying the inevitable: cancellation. It’s a cruel, swift death we often call The Ax. Each week during Fall Premiere Season, we’ll take a look at the ratings for fall’s new crop of shows and tell you which ones are flapping their baby wings just hard enough, which ones are flying, and which ones sadly, will be a victim of the Ax Factor. This week, NBC showed mercy on its struggling comedy Guys With Kids, while CBS cancelled its own ratings dud, Partners.
Kristen Stewart’s Future Career
Vegas (CBS, Tuesdays at 10 PM ET): CBS already placed its bet and rolled the dice on this one, but Vegasdropped to a new low this week — 10.4 million and a 1.6 in the demo. In CBS land, that’s pretty crappy. Elementary (CBS, Thursdays at 10 PM ET): Elementary was up a smidge this week, drawing in 10.7 million viewers and a 2.3 in its demo.
