Riveting Television

Two big Television reports came out this weekend. First were the Primetime Rankings for the 05-06 season shows. ABC had a few big hits and no real catastrophes with the worst rated show beeing 115 out of 156:

4. Desperate Housewives   
5. Grey’s Anatomy
7. Dancing With the Stars (Thursday)   
12. Monday Night Football    
14. Lost    
18. Dancing With the Stars (Friday)    
19. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
28. Commander in Chief    
42. Crumbs    
46. Boston Legal    
52. American Inventor    
53. The Bachelor: Paris    
56. Invasion    
56. America’s Funniest Home Videos    
63. Wife Swap    
63. Miracle Workers    
67. 20/20    
69. The Evidence    
75. In Justice    
78. Supernanny
82. George Lopez    
82. The War at Home    
89. Freddie    
90. Alias    
90. According to Jim    
93. Rodney    
99. What About Brian    
99. Emily’s Reasons Why Not    
103. Hope & Faith    
105. Jake in Progress
108. Hot Properties    
108. The Night Stalker
115. Less Than Perfect
115. Sons & Daughters

I’m a little confused how Commander in Chief is getting canceled when it ranks 28th well above some shows that were renewed. Also, what was Crumbs, I’ve never even heard of that show.

The second part of this equation is the projected fall return date of your favorite series. The Futon Critic has the goods. Here are some highlights:
