By Reality TV World staff, 08/26/2002
NBC has ordered eight new episodes of Nash Entertainment’s “Meet My Folks,” the dating competition series that has generated some of the summer’s strongest averages for a reality show. The additional episodes will likely air as a midseason replacement series.
On Monday, August 19, the reverse episode of “Meet My Folks” - where three women vied for the parental approval of a single man - dominated ABC Monday football and CBS’ “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” among adults 18-49, leading NBC to its 12th consecutive Monday victory among adults 18-49, according to updated in-home viewing statistics from Nielsen Media Research.
During it’s summer run, “Meet My Folks” has been undefeated in its time periods among adults 18-49 after seven telecasts to date, four on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET, two on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET and one on Saturday at 10 p.m. ET. The Monday edition of "Meet My Folks" is averaging a 5.2 rating, 15 share among adults 18-49 and 10.7 million viewers overall, which translates to this summer's No. 2 rating among adults 18-49 and a top-10 ranking in total viewers.
