CBS’s ‘Mentalist,’ Fox’s ‘Fringe’ Rule, Magna Says

Oct 13, 2008  •  Post A Comment

CBS’s “The Mentalist” and Fox’s “Fringe” are the two standout new shows of the season so far, according to media agency Magna Global.
On the other hand, NBC’s “Knight Rider,” “must be a disappointment for the network,” the agency said. Second-year series “Pushing Daisies,” “Private Practice” and “Dirty Sexy Money” on ABC; “Lipstick Jungle” and “Life” on NBC and Fox’s “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” are not “performing up to their respective network’s expectations,” Magna executive VP Steve Sternberg says in a new report.
Mr. Sternberg said that ABC’s “Life on Mars” and CBS’ “Eleventh Hour” had decent debuts up against each other Thursday at 10 p.m., but “it will take another week or two to determine if either has legs.”
NBC’s “Kath & Kim” “can’t be labeled a hit” despite an OK premiere, and CBS’s “Gary Unmarried” and “The Ex-List’ could go either way, Mr. Sternberg said.

  1. If Gary Unmarried and the Ex-List both get cancelled, they could have a joint series finale where they “rediscover” each other and get married…
    LOL 🙂

  2. 8-),. That was very funny Phil K. Love it.
    I hope the Axe List and Nina at CBS go away at the same time.

  3. I think Fringe with the limited commerials is really innovative and helping its ratings

  4. I love the way you write and also the theme on your blog. Did you code this yourself or was it done by a professional? I’m very very impressed.
