"Top Model", "Shield" take it on the chin

The good news for The CW lasted just one day.

America’s Next Top Model’s season-premiere last night set a personal ratings low with just 3.5 million viewers – down 32 percent from last year’s premiere (Sept. 19, 2007) in adults 18-49 and managed only a 1.9/6 among adults 18-34, also down from last year.

Top Model was even beaten by Univision programming in adults 18-49.

I guess I’m not the only one who got off the Top Model bandwagon…

As for The Shield, the season premiere of that show was also a disappointment, setting a personal low rating (1.0/3 in Adults 18-49). This is The Shield’s final season, and it looks like it picked the right time to leave.
