How's the WB doing? The futon critic takes a look at the network in a year-to-year comparison of ratings and finds that on Wed night at 9pm, Jack & Bobby had a 41% drop and Big Man On Campus had a 61% drop in viewership compared to Angel last year.
Just thought I'd add some more cheery news.
Nevertheless, if a show is down 30% in total viewers from last season, it's a fair assumption it's taken a nose dive in those demographics as well.
Overall in terms of the dramas, the network has shown it's willing to walk away from its high profile "buzzed about" projects that aren't up to snuff ("Lost In Space," "Global Frequency" and "Dark Shadows" from last development season) so it's anyone's guess which pilots will make the cut.
Funny in a season that on other networks has embraced the outside of mainstream shows like "Lost" and "Medium", the WB choose to axe those shows that were not your typical formula TV. They seem to as of late find themselves out of step with viewers are watching.
