First ratings for “Timeout With John Bolaris,” WCAU-TV’s new program covering the entertainment scene, provided little cause for jubilation. The preview on Dec. 22 drew a third-place 3/5 in both books. By comparison, WPVI-TV’s “Prime Time” posted a 10/20 in Arbitron and an 11/20 in Nielsen, and KYW-TV’s “People Talk” registered a 7/14 and a 6/12.

“Timeout” improved its performance on Jan. 5, topping “People Talk” 3.9/6 to 3.5/6 in Arbitron and 3.7/6 to 3.5/6 in Nielsen; however, in the same 7 p.m. timeslot WPVI’s post-Eaglecast news enjoyed a runaway 23/37 in Arbitron and a 26/41 in Nielsen.
