My Generation joins Lone Star on discard pile


It’s a new season in the programming world of network broadcast television, and it’s also an exceedingly short season to programs which come out of the blocks stumbling. Poor ratings have now claimed a second victim in a season that is only two weeks old.

The second program is ABC’s My Generation, which suffered a poor opening night as the lead-in for Grey’s Anatomy on the Thursday prime time schedule, and then dropped off even further.

According to Reuters, the show could muster no better than a 1.1 among the 18-49 demo in its second outing, according to Nielsen.

Fox’s Lone Star was the first casualty, failing to draw viewers during its Monday trial period. It hit a 1.0 18-49 on its second outing, and also found itself on the slag heap.
