New CBS Spy Show Premieres to Weak Ratings

Apr 4, 2011  •  Post A Comment

CBS’s new spy show "CHAOS" debuted Friday to disappointing ratings, TVLine.com reported. The show did lead its 8 p.m. time slot with a modest 6.43 million total viewers, but it struggled in the key 18-49 demo, averaging only a 1.1 rating.

That number put “CHAOS” ahead of a “Smallville” repeat on CW, but trailed “Who Do You Think You Are?” on NBC (1.25 average rating), “Shark Tank” on ABC (1.2) and a “Kitchen Nightmares” repeat on Fox (1.15).

The "CHAOS" premiere was 27% below the premiere of the show it replaced in the time slot, "The Defenders," the story notes.


  1. I thought the show was OK, and I’ll give it another shot this week.

  2. CHAOS’s modest 6.43 million viewers is 3 times the number that was deemed a success for REELZ’s “The Kennedy’s”.
