Thursday night had a new series premiere on FOX and the results were not positive. But first, week two of American Idol was down a million viewers and half a demo point from last Thursday's two hour episode. Week two was pretty rough on Idol, we'll see if the year-to-year comparisons start getting better in future weeks. The series premiere of Rake followed and it really struggled even with the sizable lead-in. It lost half of the Idol audience in the demo. If this show had not had a big lead-in, it probably would have pulled DOA numbers. As it is, it's probably enough to last the season but FOX has enough dramas in its wheelhouse and this will probably not be in the conversation for next year. On ABC, The Taste rallied a bit as it was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. CBS was in repeats but two repeats of The Big Bang Theory were stronger than any other show on the evening besides Idol.

On low NBC, Community and Parks and Recreation both started out the night down a tenths in viewers and even in the demo. NBC decided to flip Sean Saves the World and The Michael J. Fox Show but there was no impact as it evened out with Fox up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo and Sean down a tenth in viewers and the demo. As of now, NBC hasn't announced any changes to the Thursday lineup after the Olympics but I have to think something is going to happen to the 9pm hour especially with Sean not having that many episodes left in its order. At 10pm, Parenthood was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.
