“Idol” was down a bit from last week but “Lie To Me” looks like a keeper as it gained almost a million viewers from last week. Viewers sure seem to like FOX shows with Brits as the leads…
The troubles for NBC continue as the revamped (yes, again) “Knight Rider” dipped below the 5 million viewer mark and finished third in its timeslot. I’m not sure how many rides KITT has left in him.
What’s Hotter: Life
One bright spot for NBC Wednesday night was the return of “Life“. The series was up significantly from its last new episode in 2008 and it looks like in this case absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder. I’ll admit, I had a hard time getting past the name of this show (really, I feel this is one of the worst titles for a show ever), but it’s really grown on me. Bringing the show back for a second season was a calculated risk as the audience wasn’t that high, but it looks like it might have paid off. Damian Lewis and Sarah Shahi shine in this drama, and it’s worth checking out if you haven’t yet. You won’t be sorry.

What’s Definitely Not Happening:
Ugh. It looks like “Life On Mars” might not get to enjoy the post-”Lost” slot Wednesday nights for much longer. The show lost another 500,000 viewers from last week, and it wouldn’t surprise me if ABC shifts the show to a new timeslot or pulls it from the schedule. Why more people aren’t watching this show is beyond me. It’ s smart, with an intriguing concept and has elements of crime, mystery, and good old fashioned drama too. Come on people, tune in before it’s too late!
