The first week of prime-time broadcast shows fells short in the ratings for television executives who hoped for a fall rebound, the Wall Street Journal says. Many viewers are watching new shows on their digital video recorders and online, the paper points out. An average of 9 million people watched the top five networks’ prime time offerings last week, a 4.3 percent decline from the first week of the 2007 season, the Journal reports. The biggest loser? NBC with 16.3% fewer viewers.
