“Pushing Daisies”: Bloom is still on

Pushingdaisesweek2“Pushing Daisies” held up pretty well in its second outing Wednesday, but it’s “Private Practice” that’s really looking like a hit for ABC. NBC’s “Bionic Woman” dipped in week three, but not precipitously.

Meanwhile, Fox’s “Back to You” and CBS’ “Kid Nation” had a tough time in the 8 p.m. hour. “Pushing Daisies” (10.1 million, 3.6 rating/11 share) led the hour in the adults 18-49 demo and held the majority, if not vast majority, of its premiere aud last week (13 million, 4.3/13). NBC’s “Deal or No Deal” (12.5 million, 3.1/9) regained some of the aud it lost last week to “Daisies” (pictured left). Same could not be said for “Back to You” (6.5 million, 2.2/7) or “Kid Nation” (7 million, 2.0/6).

At 9 p.m., “Bionic Woman” (10.1 million, 3.8/8) improved in the demo on its “Deal” lead-in. CBS’ “Criminal Minds” (14.5 million, 3.8/8) led the frame in viewers but “Practice” (12.2 million, 4.8/12) won the demo by a comfortable margin, up slightly from its second outing last week. CW’s “Gossip Girl” (2.9 million, 1.7/5 in adults 18-34) got lost in the fray but no matter; the frosh sudser earned a full season pickup from CW on Wednesday. Fox’s “Kitchen Nightmares” (6.5 million, 3.0/8) was in its regular zone of the past few weeks.

At 10 p.m., it looks like time is running out on NBC’s drama “Life” (8.1 million, 2.8/8). ABC’s “Dirty Sexy Money” (8.9 million, 3.4/9) is better off, but it also has a better lead-in. CBS’ “CSI: NY” (13.3 million, 4.0/11) easily took the hour.

For the nightly bragging rights overall, it was ABC in 18-49 (3.9/11) and CBS in viewers (11.6 million.)
