Home Television Halle Berry “Extant” Series Moves, And Loses About Half a Million Viewers

I am baffled: Halle Berry’s show “Extant” moved to Wednesday nights and did worse than it had on Sundays. Last night “Extant” got the same 1.1 in the key demo. But it dropped from 6.43 to 5.91 million total viewers. A half million people vanished in the move. (Maybe it’s like when my parents moved houses and misplaced boxes in storage. I told my mom, they’ll turn up!)

“Extant” just isn’t clicking. I’m a big Halle Berry fan. She’s a movie star. But not enough people are watching. And the ones who are watching are probably my age or older. This is ok for summer, but for the real TV season. Maybe Les Moonves should move “Extant” to Showtime. That’s what I would do, but no one asked me.

Meantime, “Sharknado 2” was a big hit, scoring 3.9 million viewers. The original “Sharknado” did a 1.4. And you say America doesn’t appreciate quality filmmaking!

  1. This is a great show and I totally agree it’s a summer sleeper. But it never aired on Sundays here on the east coast, always on Wednesdays but at 9pm.

  2. You are fools if you drop EXTANT We haven’t had a show like it and it is just starting!! Also, people have to adjust to YOUR new time change. I feel you are being unfair !

  3. EXTANT is excellent TV. It is intelligent with great plot for thinking minds. Give it a chance at the new spot or better still stop moving a good series in its early outing.

  4. I think Monica Lewinsky should pull up her panties and go home, and CLOSE the door. I think America is pretty tired of her. What a coincidence that her face is appearing again when it looks like “the wife” may be up for the Presidents job. Maybe she thinks she can perform the same services for another Clinton president.
