Worst Week

I thought the first episode was really funny, and the second episode had me annoyed with the guy for being so stupid. I'll give them one more episode to redeem themselves.

post-2-1224725385_thumb.jpgCBS has ordered two more scripts for the freshman comedy "Worst Week," sources say.

The Universal Media Studios/CBS Paramount series has presented a bit of a conundrum for the network. The likable single-camera comedy has seemingly stabilized on Monday night with a rating that's acceptable for a freshman comedy in general but unacceptable for its top-notch time period in particular.

The show has averaged about a 3.2 rating in recent weeks, about 40% lower than lead-in "Two and a Half Men" and putting a crimp on 10 p.m.'s "CSI: Miami," which has dropped the last five weeks in a row. Clearly CBS doesn't want to give up on a show that's rating above a 3.0 when competitors are dishing out full season orders to shows like "Knight Rider" and "Terminator" that rank in the 2's. But what do you do with it? Keep it where it is, and accept a deep pothole for the time being? Or move it, like a delicate patient on a respirator, and risk it crashing?

CBS' hope, of course, is that "Week" has not stabilized and that, like "How I Met Your Mother," there's growth to come. The network just rather not wait a a few years like it had to do with "Mother" for viewers to get on board.
