'Swingtown' draws decent ratings; beats 'Fear Itself'
By Marisa Guthrie -- Broadcasting & Cable, 6/8/2008 8:00:00 PM
CBS's couple-swapping drama Swingtown premiered to respectable numbers, even with stiff competition from a close Game One of the NBA finals on ABC. Swingtown averaged 8.58 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That was good enough for second in the 10 p.m. time slot behind the Boston Celtics/L.A. Lakers game, which averaged 10.3 million viewers and a 4.2 demo rating for the hour.
NBC's new horror entry Fear Itself averaged 5.2 million viewers and a 2 demo rating, according to Nielsen.
