By on 4-27-2010 in News, Romantically Challenged

ABC’s “Romantically Challenged” took second in the 9:30 p.m. half-hour in Total Viewers (10.0 million), Adults 18-49 (2.7/7-tie) and across key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54). In fact the new ABC comedy outdrew the final half-hour of Fox’s “24” by 10% in Total Viewers (“24” = 9.1 million).

For the 2nd week in a row, “Romantically Challenged” improved its time period for ABC, over original comedy programming on the year-ago night, boosting the slot year-to-year by 11% in Total Viewers and by 23% in Adults 18-49 (“Surviving Suburbia” on 4/27/09 = 9.0 million and 2.2/5). “Romantically Challenged” exhibited solid retention of its week-ago series debut in viewers (93%) and young adults (93%).


  1. That’s awesome. I’m happy for you and your cast mates. I missed the first episode, but look forward to many more.

  2. Totally awesome ratings, I was able to get my boyfreind, normally glued to “24” to sneak a peak and he was enthralled. Thats one more for you. I love the show, absolutely funniest ever. Keep up the good work!

  3. Dear lady my facebook friend I told you that the ratings will improve with each episode. Will continue to spread the word on facebook and twitter Love you keep smiling things can only can better look forward to the Australian premiere your friend always

    Robert :D <3

  4. Sorry, but I’m not sold – I found the characters flat and unengaging, the two storylines painful and stilted

    frankly, after 2 episodes I’m done

    Alyssa, love you darling, but this vehicle jumped the shark before it ever hit the airwaves


  5. Good luck Alyssa! Your show has a warm heart and cute wit.. hope it really picks up steam!

  6. Good for you, keep up the good work and your show will be a hit. from one of your fans, dracutjim

  7. Plenty of stupid shows stay on the air. Have you heard of Two and a Half Men? This show is not the best show on tv but it’s decent. Maybe it’s trying a little too hard to be Friends. Either way, it’s an okay show. Something they show on an airplane when people are really bored. Good luck with the rest of the season, Alyssa!

  8. Congratulations Alyssa! I am so happy for you!

  9. alyssa truth surprised me the series is very funny, very different people but for all tastes and there are many who made us laugh like crazy and will continue supporting to you to be this show into a hit

  10. I love this show! A good show to share laughs with the hubby. We will be watching every week. Keep up the good work.

  11. I thought last night was funnier than the first week (which I also enjoyed). I hope you stick around a while. I’m glad I started following you on Twitter, or I may have missed out…

  12. I watch last night episode and it had it’s moment. Must keep it fresh and going. It was fair, the first episode was better. Keep searching and finding the key, its there but! missing something, I can’t put my finger on it. I think some viewer will not have the attention span, because if you walk away for a minute, you will miss the punch line. girls are funny, guys not so much.

  13. Congrats, Alyssa! So happy for you and your cast. It’s great to see that dreams really do come true. :)

    I think you’re the epitome of positivity and light and can only imagine good things coming to you.

  14. Glad to hear it. Let’s make it number 1 next week! :) Good luck, Alyssa. I’d watch you on ANY show — you’re amazing!

  15. Dear Alyssa, First and Foremost I would like to say congrats to you and the cast of Romantically Challenged. I think you are a great actress, and I’ve been following your work since Who’s The Boss. I’ve been a fan of yours and will always be. I wish you the best with all of your endeavors. Much Love, Danielle.

  16. It’s good but I find it almost impossible to watch shows with a laugh track.

  17. Although I enjoyed the series premiere, the second episode felt very flat to me. The easiest way to judge a comedy of course is how many times it makes you laugh out loud. I am sorry to say the second episode made me only chuckle twice. Not near enough for a half hour of my time. Will give it another chance next week. As I am a big fan of yours, I really hope the laughs increase.

  18. Alyssa ur the best I am glued 2 Charmed everyday and ur new show its awesome like u r. Welcome back hun and go Dodgers.

  22. From one of ur fans, wayback to who’s the boss?
    Congrats on the ratings, and they will get better
    I usually watch , but not anymore

  23. Hi Alyssa i got to be honest I thought kelly was just another blonde but after I watching #RomanticallyChallenged you and kelly had me on the floor laughing i will watch you for another 8 seasons to bad it’s not a hour long show we just can’t got enough of you
    love from your fans in Texas

  24. I have to watch it. My initial reaction to the title is Snooze, but what if it isn’t. Alyssa is hot, and great with Twitter so it’s worth a drive by. I sort of look at fans like cattle. The cattle herders put their feet up and enjoy cocoa by evening..wait, what happens to the cows? Need to rethink this. lol

  25. It appears that only favorable comments are posted here. (except maybe one or so that is hand-picked to make it seem real). I think the show will have a tough time making it. I love Alyssa, but the noise on television with similarly themed shows will cancel this one out. You have to understand that this is a product not unlike toothpaste. Someone gets rich from it, and it certainly isn’t the fans. I’d boycott most of the rubbish on tv, it’s brain-numbing and won’t improve your chances much of making your own mark.
