Ringer and Sarah Michelle Gellar — a match made in rating’s heaven.
Two sisters — one a recovering addict on the run, the other a rich socialite with an icy marriage and secrets of her own. Perfect plot for a Ringer ratings success story.
The CW officially revealed the following information in regards to Ringer’s ratings success: “The series premiere of RINGER delivered The CW’s largest audience in the Tuesday 9-10:00p.m. time period in over three years (2.74 million, best since the 90210 series debut on 9/2/08), according to preliminary Live Plus Same Day Nielsen ratings for Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2011. RINGER also scored the time period’s best women 18-49 (1.6/4) delivery in over 2 years (since 9/8/09) and best women 18-34 (1.6/4) performance here since 11/09/09.”
It just goes to show, Sarah Michelle Gellar can not be denied wherever she stars in.
The release continued, “RINGER helped lift The CW to its best Tuesday night overall in over two years among total viewers (2.18 million) and women 18-49 (1.4/4), best since 9/8/09,” adding “RINGER scored gains of +66% in total viewers, +50% in adults 18-49 (1.2/3) and +45% in women 18-49 (1.6/4), versus Life Unexpected’s debut in the same time period last fall.”
That’s a lot of numbers and if you can’t make heads or tails of it all, just know that this is a good thing for Ringer and the CW.
We caught the premiere like everyone else, and thought it was a nice surprise from what we thought it would be.
Ringer moves fast and provided a nice twist at the end that we must tune in next week to learn more about.
