I regularly follow ratings of network and cable shows. Its the quickest way to see what works and isn't working and exactly how much its watched. I have added shows to my will start watching when I can clearly see I should give the show a chance. I didn't watch any new shows this year, as was tired of getting hooked and then it was canceled.
I'm planning to watch The Mentalist and Secret Life of an American Teenager to consider adding both of them to my regular watching. They both are hits and you will see why when you read this article.
First lets discuss the one on Monday at 8:00pm that always does better than the CW Gossip Girl. I have watched 3 episodes of Secret Life and I'm a little lost, so will have to watch the older episodes. The show had 3.9 million viewers and is on ABC Family and just before Kyle XY 1.4 million viewers. I have heard the network may cancel Kyle really a shame, as I enjoy the show.
Now lets discuss The Mentalists a huge hit and 15.51 million for a rerun and the most watched show at 9:00 last night. It didn't win in the younger people, but clearly people that are older are watching CBS.
On the USA Network there was a change in the number 1 show on the network, as that good looking guy won. Burn Notice barely beat Monk. Gena Rowlands was on Monk and she was great. I really think they should have found a way to renew Monk for a few more seasons, but know it is a costly show.
