“The Wanted” Finishes Fifth in Time Slot

By Chris Ariens 

The second edition of NBC News’ “The Wanted” drew a 0.5 rating in A18-49 viewers last night at 9pmET, worse than the 0.8 last week’s premiere received. 2.17M Total Viewers watched, again down from last week‘s 2.99M.

The NBC News production finished behind ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” CBS’ sitcom repeats, a Univision telenovela and FOX’s repeat of “Lie to Me.”

“Dateline” at 10pmET grew the lead-in drawing a 1.0 A18-49 rating with 3.95M Total Viewers, still fourth for the hour.

> Update: “The Wanted” will not be on NBC’s schedule next week. Insiders tell us the network planned to air just two episodes. Others in production may wind up on MSNBC or production may cease altogether.
