This morning, every singing competition series tried to sign Adele.
NBC: ADELE LIVE IN LONDON did (for summer) a very solid 1.7, winning its hour and beating ABC’s season premiere of Secret Millionaire. The MISS USA PAGEANT handed NBC the night with a 1.8, although that was down a significant 0.4 from last year’s installment.
ABC: SECRET MILLIONAIRE had an unimpressive 1.5 start, and the season premiere of EXTREME MAKEOVER WEIGHT LOSS EDITION was no higher (Makeover was well below last year’s season premiere, but that was on a different day and time and during the regular season, so comparisons aren’t apples to apples).
FOX: Animation reruns, highlighted by FAMILY GUY‘s 1.8 (enough to tie for the win in its timeslot) and AMERICAN DAD‘s 1.5.
CBS: 60 MINUTES won the 7PM hour with 1.4, then it was straight downhill, as none of the night’s reruns could even reach a 1.0 rating
Tonight, HELL’S KITCHEN and MASTER CHEF make their season debuts on FOX, against a new BACHELORETTE on ABC and AMERICA’S GOT TALENT/AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR on NBC.
