Given the hype surrounding its debut, it's perfectly understandable why the premiere of "V" drew such high ratings last week. Episode two, however, dropped 29% from a week ago, which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is the highest drop from a scripted premiere that has been seen so far this season. Notes the Reporter, "Driven by 1980s nostalgia and plenty of marketing, viewer curiosity ran high for the debut -- a pattern we've seen in recent years for network remakes of Knight Rider, 90210 and American Gladiators. Tuesday night's decline, therefore, was not exactly surprising ... yet it was pretty steep. The second 'V' hour was seen by 10.6 million viewers and drew a 3.7 preliminary rating among adults 18-49... The rating is still a successful number for a freshman drama. If 'V' can remain anywhere close to this neighborhood, the show will be fine."
