It has been an average season, ratings-wise, for "Alias" ... even though it has been much better this season than last season ... first of all, thanks to "Lost", the perfect lead-in ... even though it hasn't been keeping a great chunk of the "Lost" viewers, but its own ratings have improved greatly. Secondly, you guys hate it, but the stand-alone episode did help the show too ... now, I am sure that with the new move to Thursdays at 8pm ... we keep the viewers we have, and get some new viewers ... ;)

Lets review this season ...

Episode One & Two: Authorized Personal Only debuted at # 19 for the week of January 2nd to 9th, 2005 ...

FOX Dominates Season's Final Days

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) The final week of the 2004-05 television season produced some funny-looking ratings numbers, owing to the fact that the Nielsen-sanctioned season actually ended in the middle of the week and viewing plummeted going into the Memorial Day weekend.
Unsurprisingly, though, FOX scored a big win in the weekly ratings, thanks to "American Idol," solid performances from some other season finales and a prime-time NASCAR race over the weekend.

FOX averaged a 7.5 rating/13 share in households and 12.51 million viewers per night for the week ending Sunday, May 29. That easily topped second-place CBS, 6.4/11 and 9.42 million viewers. NBC (5.2/9, 7.78 million) finished third, and ABC (4.7/8, 7.21 million) was fourth. UPN's 1.9/3 and 2.82 million viewers were good enough to top The WB's 1.7/3 and 2.51 million.


Among adults 18-49, FOX routed the competition with a 5.1 rating. NBC finished a distant second at 2.8, and ABC and CBS tied for third at 2.6. UPN averaged 1.2 and The WB 1.0.

The two-hour "American Idol" finale was the week's top-rated show, scoring a 17.5/27 and close to 30.3 million viewers. The final Tuesday "Idol" of the season finished second with a 16.2/25, and the season finale of "House," 11.9/18, came in fifth overall.

The season finale of "24," 7.2/11, and the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600, 6.1/13, also made the top 20 for FOX, finishing 15th and 20th.

CBS ended the week with the most shows in the top 20, led by the "CSI: Miami" season finale, third overall at 13.5/22. A "CSI" repeat, 10.9/19, tied for sixth place, and "NCIS" was 10th at 9.5/15. "Without a Trace," 9.2/16, tied for 11th, and a Thursday "Cold Case" repeat (6.9/13) was 16th. The special "Rob & Amber Get Married" came in 17th with a 6.7/11, and a "Still Standing" episode was one spot back with a 6.2/10.

Then there's the curious case of "Two and a Half Men." The sitcom's season finale, which aired in the 9 p.m. ET Monday spot it will occupy next season, tied for 11th with a 9.2/14 -- well below its season average. A rerun of the show at 9:30 actually did better, posting a 9.7/15 and finishing ninth overall.

NBC was led by the season finale of "Law & Order: SVU," which finished its strong year with a 10.9/18, tied for sixth overall. "L&O" sibling "Criminal Intent" was right behind in eighth, drawing a 9.9/16 for its season-ender, which aired on Wednesday. The finales of "Medium" (7.9/13, 13th) and "Las Vegas" (7.3/11, 14th) also cracked the top 20.

With its powerhouse Sunday lineup already done for the year, ABC placed only two shows in the top 20. The two-hour "Lost" finale came in fourth with a 12.0/18, but "Alias" (6.2/10) failed to hang on to much of that audience and finished in a tie for 18th.

The WB's top show was "7th Heaven," which ended its season with a 3.7/6, good for 53rd overall. "Girlfriends" and "WWE Smackdown!" paced UPN, tying for 59th at 3.0/5.

One good thing though, "Alias" opened Season 4 in the Top 20, and ended it in the Top 20 ... (y) (y)

Lastly, for the season that just ended, "Alias" finished in the TOP 50 shows for the season ... (y) (y) ... better say, in the TOp 40 shows for the season ... ;)

No, I think your TV has to be on. Maybe it can be on while you're not home? We may need it...

Alias is like so many other shows, it is a cult show, which means that it is FANTASTIC but no one watches it!!!
What the hell is wrong with people? They want the same old crappy shows, law + cops! They don't want anything new and exciting, but it is the same thing that happened with Buffy and it went for 7 seasons, lets hope Alias can do that too!!

That doesn't mean you shouldn't watch though.


Alias did awesome this season and moved up 21 slots to where it was last season.

Hopefully ABC is making the right move with moving it to Thursdays...
