Overnight TV Ratings -- Trump Still Down
Almost everyone on Monday night did okay. CBS's sitcom lineup -- despite being mostly repeats -- was sold, with The New Adventures of Old Christine slowing down a bit. Everwood returned to modest ratings, hurting its chances of getting picked up by CW. I've enjoyed the show, but have to think it's had its day. Howie Mandel's empty-headed game show Deal Or No Deal inexplicably continues to draw an audience. But Donald Trump squanders that crowd with The Apprentice, which is looking in serious trouble. The Donald dropped 22% in adults 18-49, which should be his show's sweet spot. (Maybe Donald can console himself by saying the Deal Or No Deal audience is low-rent and not smart enough for him.) And of course Prison Break did fine and 24 even better on Fox.
