'Real Gilligan's Island' scores for TBS

December 03, 2004|by Zap2it.com

The reality-show update of "Gilligan's Island" brought some big ratings to the shores of TBS Tuesday night.

"The Real Gilligan's Island" premiered to an audience of just more than 4 million viewers at 8 p.m. Tuesday. A second episode, aired immediately after the debut, drew an additional 3.7 million people.

Equally important, if not more so, to the comedy-oriented network is the fact that a majority of those viewers - 2.68 million for the premiere and 2.45 million for the second episode - were adults 18-49, the demographic advertisers chase most fervently. Both episodes also drew more than a million viewers in the adults 18-34 subset.

The premier's 18-49 performance outdid that of broadcast networks Fox and UPN for the hour.
