With Nfl Gone, Nbc Loses Yardage


In its first Sunday night of the season without football, NBC recorded disappointing results for the debut of Grease: You're the One That I Want and the season premiere of The Apprentice. The 90-minute Grease special recorded an unimpressive 7.2 rating and a 10 share in the 8:00 p.m. hour to place third. It edged up a bit to a 7.7/11 in the 9:00-9:30 p.m. segment, but remained in third. Donald Trump's move to California saw a corresponding move downward in the ratings as the first half hour of The Apprentice recorded a 6.1/9, the reality show's worst ratings ever. The 10:00 p.m. hour didn't fare much better, averaging a 6.7/10. Earlier in the evening, Deal or No Deal, with a 5.7/8, was trounced by a football overrun on Fox that recorded a spectacular 23.1/23 and CBS's 60 minutes, which registered a 7.8/12.
