"I Am Britney Jean" Flops in the Ratings w/ Only 706k Viewers


Swan song. NBC's The Voice wrapped up its fall season with 14 million viewers Tuesday, down just a tick from last fall's finish. (The series returns Feb. 24). Fox's The X Factor stumbled to its own finish line with 6.2 million Thursday, down from 9.7 million last fall, and its return next year remains a question mark.

Special delivery. CBS' I Love Lucy Christmas Special, two colorized episodes, drew 8.7 million nostalgic viewers, winning its Friday time slot. E!'s two-hour Britney Spears documentary, I Am Britney Jean, didn't fare so well, managing just 706,000 on Sunday. ABC's Barbara Walters perennial, 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013,claimed 8.9 million Wednesday, up from 7.6 million last year. And ABC's The Sound of Music on Sunday averaged 6.6 million: There was no Carrie Underwood, but not bad for a 1965 film, which had its biggest audience in six years.

Winding down. TNT's three-part miniseries Mob City concluded Wednesday with a low 1.4 million viewers, down from 2.3 million for its Dec. 4 opener. And USA's White Collar wrapped up its fall run Thursday with 2.5 million.
