Marti's Point Pleasant off to rocky start. "No one expected Fox's Point Pleasant to maintain American Idol lead-in levels, but not only did the drama dip in the overnights, it was off considerably in the second-half hour.
"In series-premiere news, although no one expected Foxís Point Pleasant to maintain American Idol lead-in levels, not only did the drama dip to an 8.0/11 in the overnights (#3), 11.68 million viewers (#3) and a 5.3/12 among adults 18-49 (#2), it was off considerably in the second-half hour. At 9:30 p.m., Point Pleasant was down by 21 percent in the overnights, 2.56 million viewers and 19 percent among adults 18-49. Donít expect much of the audience to return tonight when Point Pleasant debuts in its regularly scheduled Thursday 9 p.m. time period out of The O.C."
On the otherhand LOST held it's own against American Idol.
"Despite facing the American Idol juggernaut, ABCís Lost held up well, finishing a solid No. 2 in the overnights (13.2/19), total viewers (19.55 million) and adults 18-49 (7.3/18). With two 8-9 p.m. shows in the winnerís circle, the remaining networks had nothing to boast about. "
