Pan Am find turbulence in second Sunday
One week, however, does not a season make. Pan Am shed half a million viewers in Canada in Week Two, dropping to 1,429,000 Sunday according to overnight estimates. It lost altitude in the U.S., too, down 19% week-to-week to 7.7 million total ABC viewers.
The consensus from critics seems to be so far that Pan Am looks great but doesn't really go anywhere. Sun Sentinel veteran Tom Jicha calls it "insultingly stupid."
CTV stayed strong Sunday with always amazing The Amazing Race (2,463,000), but Desperate Housewives (1,578,000) is showing its age. The Simpsons (1,241,000) continues to be Global's big draw Sunday. The Good Wife at 10 should do better than 558,000.
CBC's Battle of the Blades seems to have caught a dull edge so far this year (1,058,000), with Heartland (718,000) at 7 p.m. ReCover Me Canada is pitchy at a low of 423,000.
One show having a big year Sunday is Lost Girl, who was found by 345,000 Showcase viewers.
