NBC says "Pretty please, watch 'Go On' and "Animal Practice' " with still more preview showings. I'd say watch "Go On" if you have not yet, and avoid "Animal Practice." The official word on the previews: NBC has scheduled encore broadcasts of the pilot episodes of its new comedies “Go On” (10-10:30 p.m. ET) and “Animal Practice” (10:30-11 p.m. ET) on Tuesday, August 21 following early previews of both series during NBC’s coverage of the recent Summer Olympics.The new broadcasts of the new series will provide additional viewer sampling leading out of a new episode of “America’s Got Talent” (8-10 p.m. ET).
TNT considers these ratings successful. I see 2 million viewers bailing on "Major Crimes." The word: TNT's blockbuster series The Closer ended its extraordinary seven-season run last night with 9,075,000 viewers in Live + Same Day, making it cable's #1 series telecast for the summer-to-date. The Closer's finale was followed by the debut of TNT's newest drama, Major Crimes, which brought in 7,184,000 viewers in Live + Same Day to rank as cable's #1 new series launch for the year-to-date. TNT has now charted cable's Top 3 new series launches of 2012, with Major Crimes followed by the June 13 premiere of Dallas (6.9 million viewers) and the July 9 debut of Perception (5.6 million viewers). By the way, the final season of "The Closer" will be on DVD on Aug. 21.
ABC Family plans a "Beverly Hills Nannies" reunion or, as I like to think of it, "Still not as horrible an idea as Honey Boo Boo." The word: With the drama hitting an all time high between nannies and the mothers and between the nannies themselves, ABC Family has ordered a 10th episode of the docu-series “Beverly Hills Nannies.” The tenth episode will be a “Nannies Tell All” reunion special, hosted by Ross Matthews (“Chelsea Lately,” “The Tonight Show”), where Nannies and Mothers can finally let all of the tension out. The “Nannies Tell All” reunion special will air directly after the summer finale of “Beverly Hills Nannies” on Tuesday, September 4th at 10:00 – 11:00 PM ET/PT.
