‘Pirate’ Lists in Debut Outing

Jun 1, 2007  •  Post A Comment

The debut of CBS’s “Pirate Master” couldn’t plunder its time period Thursday night, placing second to Fox’s “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?”
“Pirate” pillaged a 2.3 rating among adults 18 to 49, according to preliminary Nielsens, down 51 percent from the season average of “Survivor: Fiji” in the time period. CBS followed the premiere with repeats and was overall in second place for the night in the demo, though it did snag first place among households.
Fox was first in the 18-49 demo with “Fifth Grader” (3.1) and the time-period premiere of “So You Think You Can Dance” (4.3), the highest-rated show of the night.
ABC was t-h-i-r-d with the “2007 Scripps National Spelling Bee” (1.9), down 24 percent from last year’s broadcast.
Airing only repeats, NBC and The CW were fourth and fifth, respectively.
