Of Note:

  • Once again, MTV’s JERSEY SHORE: FAMILY VACATION won the day in Thursday cable ratings, but the earned 0.9 among 18-49s was a tenth down from last week. MTV also picked up a top three win with reality series EX ON THE BEACH (0.5), and Bravo’s SOUTHERN CHARM came in second, also at a 0.5 (even with last week).
  • In more Viacom news, VH1’s RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE wrapped up its season with a 0.4, a tenth up from last week.
  • The reboot of DOUBLE DARE on Nick-at-Nite debuted solidly (most likely on the strength of its nostalgia factor), earning a 0.3 and drawing in just under 1.2 million viewers.

OTHER NEWS:

  • CBS is set to premiere two true-crime series for the summer, both in July. Details below:
    • WHISTLEBLOWERS | CBS News for CBSTVS | TBDx60 | Premiere: 13 July

Log line: Real-life David vs. Goliath stories of heroic people who put everything on the line to expose illegal and often dangerous wrongdoing when major corporations rip off U.S. taxpayers. Hosted by Alex Ferrer (former judge and police officer).

  • PINK COLLAR CRIMES | CBSTVS | TBDx60 | Premiere: 28 July

Log line: True crime series inspired by a growing crime wave in the country: felonious females. These are the impossible-to-believe, often absurd, true stories about the most unexpected women – PTA moms, country-club chairwomen, and more – who took big risks, pocketed big cash and then served hard time. Each episode includes insight and analysis from prosecutor, author, and television correspondent Marcia Clark. 

  • TNT has renewed hit crime drama series ANIMAL KINGDOM and CLAWS for fourth and third seasons, respectively. Both shows had strong ratings for their season openers and have become flagships for the cable network, consistently drawing audiences in the 1.3 -2 million viewer range in Live +7.
  • Speaking of TNT (I’m really impressed with the growth in both quality and storytelling at the cable channel over the past few seasons), check out the trailer for I AM THE NIGHT, the limited series directed by Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman) and starring Chris Pine (Star Trek). Inspired by true events, Night follows the story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley) who was given away at birth. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery.
