Ratings Update: Sharks Circle Around ‘Pirate Master’

I might not be watching the series anymore, but I certainly am still watching the ratings for CBS’ Pirate Master. And while it isn’t the huge decline that hit FOX’s On the Lot earlier this summer, it is certainly bad news for the struggling reality series.

PIFeedback.com – Thursday June 7th Fast Nationals

Week two of CBS reality dud Pirate Master lived up to that description, with a disappointing 6.34 million viewers (#2) and a 1.9/ 7 among adults 18-49 (#2t) from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, Pirate Masters opened on May 31 with 6.99 million viewers and a 2.3/ 6 in the demo, based on the final nationals.

That means that the show dropped roughly 10% of its premiere viewers, while dropping a more disastrous 17% or so in the key demos; and this is without the same level of competition as last week! CBS, like FOX with On the Lot, is likely to stick with it to avoid admitting defeat, but Pirate Master will certainly not be returning for another voyage any time soon.

Also of note: ABC’s Fast Cars and Superstars failed to ignite racing fans:

Earlier in the evening on ABC was the debut of Fast Cars & Superstars at (an also estimated) 5.62 million viewers (#3) and a 1.9/ 7 among adults 18-49 (#2t) at 8 p.m.
