NBC really can't catch a break!
Nielsen Overnights (18-49)
NBC's 'Bent' bombs in Wednesday night bow
New sitcom averages a 1.0 in 18-49s in its first episode

NBC's new comedy "Bent" had a rough first night.
The show bowed to disastrously low ratings, becoming the lowest-rated new scripted series this season.
"Bent" averaged a 1.0 in adults 18-49 in its first episode at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, and a 0.9 for the second episode, which aired at 9:30.
I figured it was doomed when I saw they were doing two 1/2 hour episodes one after the other. next week too. I presume from that they don't expect it to succeed and just want to get the use of the episodes they paid for.
I watched it and I will watch it until it is no more. I also enjoyed Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.
I'll most likely watch the spin off from the Closer too.
