CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  Syfy’s BLOOD DRIVE debuted at 0.24.  That’s not a bad number for Syfy considering that the renewed WYNONNA EARP premiered at 0.20 (on a Friday in April 2016), but it’s a long way from the 0.55 premiere of Z NATION in 2014 (on a Friday in September).

Bravo continued on top of Wednesday cable with REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NYC, down a tick from last week to 0.54, with lead-out THEN & NOW steady at 0.19.  ESPN’s 30 FOR 30 Celtics vs Lakers documentary continued to perform at 0.49, although down from Tuesday’s 0.67/0.57.  On Discovery, an ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE special was at 0.48, leading into the season premiere of HOMESTEAD RESCUE at 0.34.  TBS’s FULL FRONTAL climbed 0.05 to 0.45.  On HGTV, BROTHER VS BROTHER jumped 0.11 to 0.43, HOUSE HUNTERS grew by 0.15 to 0.40, and HOUSE HUNTERS INTL was also up 0.15 to 0.37.  The tenor of yesterday’s news favored Fox News, which was led by TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT at 0.39/3M, while MSNBC’s RACHEL MADDOW SHOW was at 0.33/2.7M, and CNN’s ANDERSON COOPER 360 was at 0.31/1.4M. Comedy Central’s THE DAILY SHOW notched another Top 10 result at 0.39.  On Lifetime, LITTLE WOMEN LA was steady at 0.36, and MONIE GETS MARRIED held at 0.29. Nickelodeon’s LOUD HOUSE continued to own late afternoon at 0.35.  On ID, REASONABLE DOUBT ticked up to 0.30, and HEAR NO EVIL was down 0.02 to 0.25.  FX’s FARGO rose a tick to 0.29. A&E’s STORAGE WARS was at 0.25/0.21, compared to last week’s 0.22/0.20.  On Food Network, COOKS VS CONS lost a tick to 0.21, and CUTTHROAT KITCHEN was also down 0.01 to 0.19.  USA’s BIG STAR LITTLE STAR gained 0.04 to 0.21.  E!’s HOLLYWOOD MEDIUM shed a tick to 0.21.  MTV’s TRUE LIFE slipped 0.02 to 0.16, and an 11PM episode followed at 0.13.  On TV Land, LOPEZ and NOBODIES returned from a week off at 0.06/0.06. Below the chart, POP’s NIGHTCAP remained at 0.01/123K, Sundance’s GOMORRAH had a 0.01 bump to 0.02/79K, and Showtime’s PUTIN INTERVIEWS also inched up to 0.03/123K.

    It was a smart move to air Mad Max before Blood Drive. But how many of those viewers will return week 2?


    • CMM

      I never heard of it until the other day looking through the listings. Then I almost forgot to watch it missing the first 15 minutes. Watched it for 5 minutes and turned it off. Next week’s results should be somewhat interesting.


      • Destiny

        I’m honestly expecting a drop. They aired it with a highly compatible movie, but they can’t do that every week.


      • CMM

        To be fair, I should watch the whole thing, but I didn’t like what I saw of those 5 minutes.

        Syfy has been disappointing greatly of late with these Canadian productions. Something very cheap about them. I watched the latest 12 Monkeys this past weekend through On Demand and, if next season were not the last, I’d give up on it now despite one brilliant, off-hand moment of this season.

        I truly believe more and more that NBC should shut down SyFy and just put money into the best sci-fi projects that come along, if any do, for its network, or maybe USA.


        • Destiny

          It wasn’t that long ago when the better performing scripted shows on Syfy pulled between a 0.5 – 1.0 weekly. The paranormal shows were also around a 0.3-0.5(With Ghost Hunters much higher). The network lost its big hitters like Stargate, BSG, Eureka, W13 and things went downhill from there.


          • Destiny

            I loved Eureka too, it had so much heart. The series finale pulled 1.57 million viewers with a 0.6. I don’t think we’ll see anything scripted at that level again.


          • CMM

            I liked Eureka too, but, as usual with me, I had an issue or two. I never really bought the chemistry of Colin Ferguson and Salli Richardson-Whitfield, for instance. I do always think of Ferguson as being the love child of Andy Taylorr and Barney Fife – ha ha.

            I am curious to see how Krypton will do, and Stranger in Strange Land may surprise when it comes along, but I am not sure how many are interested in Krypton’s story since we know what happens. I would not be surprised if it ends up like Caprica – prequel to Battlestar Galactica – did.

            I guess they’ll always have Sharnado though…


          • Destiny

            I think Krypton will probably depend on the production values and writing. If everything about the show is cheap and the writing poor, it’ll just sink. If the money and effort is put into the show, it’ll do well for Syfy. There’s no reason why a Superman prequel can’t do well even on a network like Syfy.

            The problem I see with a lot of Syfy shows is that they have zero hype and buzz about them. The network also doesn’t promote some shows it does have well enough.


          • Destiny

            Oh and back on the Eureka point, I loved how they made S.A.R.A.H such a likeable character, even for an A.I. Although she/it was a house, they managed to inject that personality there.


          • CMM

            It could be SyFy has an image problem due to some cheap production values and stories for their films and shows. And look at how they push Sharknado in comparison to their other, even better, stuff. It may all have tarnished whatever reputation they may have had with viewers.

            Their shows are also more for a niche audience, so general viewers are not watching much either.

            Their shows, of late, lack some of the upbeat fun factor of Eureka, Stargate, Warehouse 13 too. I am guessing they wanted a more serious science-fiction tone? They are darker and more dreary, and with the show, Aftermath, ridiculous.


          • Destiny

            From what I understand I think they blamed their loss of viewers on the Paranormal shows tarnishing their rep. One such host of one of those shows mentioned on Facebook that the network wanted to go in a different direction. Essentially they were canceled not for their ratings but because the network didn’t want them anymore. As weird as that probably sounds. I remember the show in question was pulling around a 0.3-0.5 and was pretty cheap.

            I find it fascinating though how Syfy went from being one of the most successful cable networks out there to its current state so quickly.


          • Destiny

            Oh and you’re also right on your other points.


  2. Martin

    Do you have Billy Dilley’s Subterranean Summer at 7 am on Disney XD, and The Fairly OddParents at 9 pm on Nicktoons?


  3. eli

    Wow Fox News


  4. ...

    Not bad for Blood Drive. The series/season premieres on Syfy in 2017 have been

    The Magicians – 0.52 (its next highest data point was a 0.37)
    The Expanse – 0.25 (averaged a 0.18 and got renewed)
    12 Monkeys – 0.16
    Dark Matter – 0.15
    Wynonna Earp – 0.09

    But I’m not sure what Syfy’s looking for in terms of average. Incorporated and Aftermath looked a lot better than Wynonna Earp and Van Helsing, but the former were cancelled while the latter made it to season two. I think if Blood Drive can become an Expanse-sized player, it’d be best case scenario given how grindhouse is a really niche genre.


  5. Heff

    Lucha Underground at 8 and 9 on El Rey? Thank you.


  6. JC

    How did Lucha Underground do this week?


  7. superstorm

    Blood Drive is a good show for me. But its revenue capability is very limited because of TV-MA. So its ratings should be high enough to consider BD successful.
