TV Ratings Note For Wednesday, September 12, 2012: Guys with Kids (NBC)

There was another special preview episode, last night, and this time it was Guys with Kids.  The numbers are below.

Guys with Kids (NBC, Wednesdays at 8:30pm ET)

6.28 million Overall Viewers
2.2/6 in the 18-49 Demo

What do you get when you mix one of those Jimmy Fallon Capital One commercials with the broad and hammy overacting of a Saturday Night Live skit, and shoot it like a traditional sitcom?  Guys with Kids.  All of the guys in this show act like they took a bunch of speed before every scene.  They all talk really fast, and try to spew as many one liners into every scene that they can.  I think Anthony Anderson is the best thing about the show, but he is really hamming it up here.  I'll give it four episodes, because I can see a little circle of light at the end of the tunnel, but that light could actually be an oncoming train.

As for the special preview ratings, well, this is about as DOA as it gets for a brand new sitcom.  I'm predicting the hard premiere of this show is going to be in the mid to upper 1s, with potentially a deep abyss below it.  Out of all the stuff I've seen so far (a post about all the Pilots I've seen will be up later today, hopefully), this looks like the first one riding on the high speed rail to cancellation.  Thanks for reading.
