‘Stalker’ Solid As CBS Wins Wednesday; ‘Black-ish’ Falls in Week Two, ‘Red Band’ Steady

Originally posted on Variety:

CBS has won the second Wednesday of the television in key demos behind “Survivor” and the creepy crime tandem of “Criminal Minds” and “Stalker,” the latter of which had a solid but unspectacular premiere and won its timeslot. ABC’s “Modern Family” remained the night’s top show in young adults, but lead-out “Black-ish” took a bit of a hit in its second week.

And two dramas that bowed a couple of weeks ago, NBC’s “The Mysteries of Laura” and Fox’s “Red Band Society,” held pretty steady.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Survivor” won the 8 o’clock hour for CBS (2.4 rating/8 share in adults 18-49, 9.5 million viewers overall), down about 10% from its 90-minute season premiere of last week. It was followed by the season opener of “Criminal Minds” (2.7/8 in 18-49, 11.5 million viewers overall), which was down just a bit in 18-49 from its year-ago opener…

Steven Gerrard questions Liverpool’s desire. Has he got a point?

Originally posted on ProSoccerTalk:

Steven Gerrard is not a happy man.

Following Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat to Basel in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, the Reds have now lost four of their opening nine games in all competitions this season and just don’t seem to be clicking into the form which almost saw them win the Premier League title last season.
