Not a Promising Sign: NBC Yanks Pride for Sweeps

 

 

According to the Associated Press, the Peacock Network is removing Siegfried and Roy?s Lions to bolster the network?s performance in the crucial November sweeps.  The word is NBC will bring the series back in December, if only to show six of the remaining 13 episodes they bought.  The show has not been a flop by any measure ? it attracted 6.6 million viewers for last week?s show.  But that figure is half of the 12.4 million viewers who watched the animated adult show?s debut.  

 

A NBC spokesperson had no comment on the future of the series.  It was noted, however, the series failed to deliver ratings the network expected for the $2 million per episode.  

 

The November sweeps are key to establishing the ad rates for networks.
