NBC won the night with the season premiere of singing competition The Voice and America’s Got Talent, with FOX’s season-two premiere of The X Factor (featuring a much hyped about panel of judges) coming in a far second for the timeslot.
It was more of the same Thursday. At 8 p.m., CBS was the only network airing a scripted show (the insufferable Big Bang Theory, an inexplicable ratings juggernaut), with more X Factor on FOX, Wipeout on ABC and the America’s Got Talent finale on NBC.
The Emmy Awards will air on ABC on Sept. 23. Hopefully that’ll be a
good reminder wake-up call to viewers (and networks) alike that there is some great, quality, scripted programming out there.
