NBC Puts 'Joey' on Bench After One Week; TV One's Music Marathon Featuring Sitcoms

NBC has put sitcom Joey on the bench after just one week in its new timeslot of Tuesday at 8:00 p.m., which it was fifth place among adults 18-49 with only a 1.5 rating for the hour, behind even Univision. The WB and UPN aired repeats of Gilmore Girls and America's Top Model, or it would have even been worse for the doomed Joey. The 8 p.m. all-new episode only scored 4.09 million viewers, followed by a repeat episode at an even worse 3.76 million. NBC will now air Most Outrageous Moments in the 8 p.m. hour effective immediately. We might have seen the last of Joey, unless NBC plans to burn off the unaired episodes in the summer, possibly on a Saturday night. But don't count on it returning next fall at all. 99.9% chance I'd say it is done.
NBC also had trouble on Wednesday night with The Biggest Loser at 8 p.m. It too was walloped by American Idol, and scored only 4.6 million viewers and just a 1.5 adult 18-49 rating. We will have more on the ratings in our weekly report on Sunday, so don't forget to come on back!

TV One is having a marathon of its sitcoms tomorrow (Saturday, March 11) from 12 noon to 10 p.m. with an shortened encore from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. It seems to be a music-themed marathon. Here is the line-up, featuring sitcoms 227, Amen, Roc, Good Times, Martin & In the House:
