‘M.Y.O.B.’ busy; not so ‘Chance’

Young adults give second-place bow to comedy

NBC’s “M.Y.O.B.” bowed Tuesday to a solid second-place finish among young adults, while the Fox gameshow “It’s Your Chance of a Lifetime” struggled again in its second chance.

“M.Y.O.B.,” an NBC Studios comedy skedded for a four-week run, debuted before 8.74 million viewers in its 9:30 timeslot and pulled down a 4.3/12 in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen. The numbers represent falloffs from its “Will & Grace” lead-in (9.19 million, 4.7/14) of just 5% and 9%.

Laffer, written and exec produced by Don Roos (“Opposite of Sex”), finished just behind a “Drew Carey” repeat on ABC in adults 18-49 (4.6/13). It fared even better in adults 18-34, however, winning its half-hour with a 4.2/13.

“Chance” (6.71 million, 2.7/8 in A18-49) which is running five times this week, improved on its Monday perf by 10% in viewers and by 13% in adults 18-49, but still could not do better than fourth place in its hour.

Gamer, hosted by Gordon Elliott, moved up to 9 p.m. on Tuesday to avoid a head-to-head battle with ABC’s “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.” It also airs tonight, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. before moving to Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on June 14.
