Flatlining – Ratings for NBC’s Trauma Even Lower Than Last Week’s

Nobody in town has been a bigger booster of the scappy makers of NBC’s Trauma than I, but after Monday night’s abysmal ratings performance, I don’t know what to think.

“After a weak debut last week, “Trauma” (1.8/4, 5.5 million viewers) fell 18 percent in its second broadcast and finished a distant fourthin its 9 p.m. timeslot. The medical drama actually ranked fifth in adults 18-34, losing to CW’s “Gossip Girl” in the demo. While “Trauma” was a huge promotional priorityfor the Peacock pre-season, and a favorite of executives there, the series now has to be considered on life support following this performance. NBC might be patient, however, and see if the show perks up next week, when the “Monday Night Football” competition may not be as intense.”

    I actually watched this show on Monday night and I’m not surprised. Man, is it terrible. It just recycles every medical drama trope we’ve seen a million times before. And that gimmick about making you think the injury is going to come from one direction (the woodchipper, the climbing wall, etc.) and then having it come from somewhere else is already tired.

    If they can’t come up with better characters and better writing, this show deserves to die.
