Another highly anticipated — at least by critics — new series fizzled Wednesday night.
“30 Rock,” Tina Fey’s much-ballyhooed “SNL” -ish comedy series, scared up only 8.1 million viewers in the third week of the new TV season.
NBC’s other “SNL”-ish series, Aaron Sorkin’s “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” opened during Premiere Week to a crowd of 13.4 million, which was considered a disappointment.
We should note that “30 Rock” aired at 8 p.m., while “Studio 60” aired at 10, when more homes use television. Also, NBC hasn’t tried comedy in Fey’s 8 p.m. Wednesday time slot since, like, forever.
Oh wait, that’s not my problem.
