The Event may be our most anticipated new TV series, but not enough viewers agreed with us. The show's debut pulled in a respectable — but not stellar — 11.13 million viewers, according to Nielsen's admittedly entrail-based numbers. The Event came in third place, behind The Situation's debut on Dancing With The Stars (20.99 million viewers) and the return of Two And A Half Men (14.49 million viewers). The Event will have to hold on to a lot of those 11 million viewers in the next few weeks, to avoid being an early casualty.
Also, the return of Chuck posted a not-that-great 6 million viewers. The big winner, for genre fans, was Nathan Fillion's Castle, which got superb ratings thanks to its Dancing lead-in. [EW]
