Reality TV Television Ratings News - June 2005
Pregnant singer Britney Spears' just-wrapped reality TV show, "Britney & Kevin: Chaotic," lost its appeal for some viewers and outraged others.
Last week's second episode of ABC's Dancing with the Stars scored a clean sweep in the weekly ratings rankings, placing as the top ranked television program of the week among both total viewers and the Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54 age demographics.
Although it ranked a more modest seventeenth in the week's viewership rankings with 8.9 million viewers, last week's premiere of NBC's Hit Me Baby One More Time reality performance show topped the ratings for the week ending June 5 in one key ranking -- the Adults 18-49 demographic.
Defying most non-ABC expectations, ABC's quirky Dancing with the Stars delivered a big ratings performance in its Wednesday, June 1 premiere -- a performance that would appear to make it poised to become the first big ratings hit of the nascent summer television season.
