The NAACP Image Awards turned out to be a ratings flop for fox, they actually lost viewers and were beat out by several networks. It wasn't that big of a hit with African Americans either, even though it was broadcast on FOX's free television network, it could only draw two million viewers out of an estimated 40 million black ppl counted by the Census. Assuming only African Americans watched the show on FOX, that would only be around 5% of the Black U.S. population.
According to ZAP 2 it:
"Fringe" was preempted by FOX in favor of the NAACP Image Awards, so we don't have to worry about our little-Friday-show-that-could this week. The Image Awards couldn't pull the ratings that "Kitchen Nightmares" and "Fringe" usually do, only barely beating The CW's "Smallville" and "Supernatural episodes."
Do you consider this good or bad news?
