CBS has ordered six more episodes of "Power of 10" for telecast at mid-season, in addition to Drew's hosting "The Price Is Right." The reason: Decent numbers.
Quoth CBS: POWER OF 10, which currently airs on Tuesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), averages more than eight million viewers per broadcast and, for the last five broadcasts, it has won its time period in all key measures (homes, viewers, A18-49 and A25-54). On Tuesdays, POWER OF 10 has won its time period both weeks since it began airing on 8/28. On Wednesdays, it has won its time period three weeks in a row and four out of the six times it has aired.
Yes, it's winning with summer-size audiences, which don't look so impressive during the fall. But if something else stumbles, a "Power of 10"-scale audience may still be better than what the stumbler produces.
Also from CBS: POWER OF 10 will have its summer finale on a special night, Sunday, Sept. 23 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), so as not to conflict with the reality series premiere of KID NATION on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
