Unfortunately the ratings have dropped again! You have to consider ‘Desperate Housewives’ also dropped in rating plus I think 6.4million viewers is still pretty good! Lets hope ABC doesnt put its future on the line! I love the show and not for just Margot but I like the whole cast plus the story lines! Plus the 3rd episode had a bit of historic value and was one of the best episodes so far!
“The ABC dramas took some serious hits in the adults 18-49 demographic, with new series Pan Am dropping 27% to a 1.9 rating/5 share and 6.4 million viewers, according to preliminary ratings.”
And maybe make this as an idea……maybe put it on another night, Pan Am has alot of competition on Sundays, for EG: The Amazing Race, Desperate Housewives, CSI & the iconic ’60 minutes’!!
ABC’s period airline drama starring Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie and Michael Mosley is also slated for air in the U.K., France, Canada, Spain, Japan and Australia.
Pan Am was one of the hottest U.S. shows out of this year’s L.A. Screenings and has already sold to most big international markets, with BBC2 taking the series for the U.K., TF1 on board for France, CTV handling Canada, Spanish rights going to pay channel Canal+, Imagica BS taking Japan and Nine Network airing the show in Australia.
Pan Am had a solid series launch, bowing to some 11 million viewers and a 3.1 share. Ratings for episode 2, which aired last Sunday, slipped to 7.7 million and a 2.6 share of the 18-49 demo. NBC’s The Playboy Club’s, which, like Pan Am features a 60s period setting and sex-and-relationship-driven storylines, was axed by the network after underwhelming ratings – Playboy’s Club bowed to 5 million viewers but quickly slipped to 3.2 million by episode 3 – and protests from the Parents Television Council, which called on advertisers to boycott the show.
With the 2nd episode of Pan Am which aired the other night unfortunatly slipped in ratings tho still had a reasonable large audience, my thoughts anyway! Heres some info taken from insidetv.ew.com!
The second week of ABC’s Pan Am lowered the drama’s ratings altitude, but it sure wasn’t alone as most Sunday shows declined from their premieres.
Pan Am (7.7 million, 2.5) fell 19 percent from its premiere. That’s a bigger drop than you hope to see, but not totally alarming either — it’s still likely enough to beat out CSI: Miami in the hour.
So all in all not a overall bad effort, and cant forget some people who record the show or like me, from other countries downloading it online and watching it on our computers! Also here is a preview to nxt wks episode (NOTE: Views who are outside the US and have not seen the show as of yet, this will contain spoilers!

The new ABC series “Pan Am” may be set in 1963, but its environmental efforts are very 21st century. “We have no bottled water on set, we use paper cups and paper plates, no Styrofoam. We have recycle bins. We’re all very conscious of that,” says executive producer Nancy Hult Ganis. As for scripts and updates, “everything is sent digitally. Everyone walks around with an iPad.”
Ganis worked for the defunct titular airline in the late ’60s to mid-’70s, and always thought her experiences would lend themselves to a TV series. She talked to other former Pan Am flight attendants, some of whom lent uniforms and memorabilia that were copied for verisimilitude. The only change was slightly altering the color of the stewardess uniform because the original appeared washed out on camera.
The series follows four women — a smart Bohemian (Christina Ricci), a French girl who finds out her lover is married (Karine Vanasse), a runaway bride (Margot Robbie) and a secret spy (Kelli Garner) — who take to the skies for adventure in a bygone time when flying was glamorous and fun. “It was before private jets, so we handled the White House press corps, we took presidents and kings and queens as well as Muslim pilgrims,” notes Ganis about the global airline.
Ricci, who’d had good experiences playing guest parts on shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Ally McBeal,” had been interested in doing a TV series for a while and was intrigued by the premise and the societal context. “There was this sense of excitement and freedom. The job allowed these women to have a freedom that they weren’t really given in life at that time. They could travel freely and see the world and be in charge of their own lives in a way that women at the time weren’t,” she says. “Yes, they had to go through girdle and makeup checks in order to serve tea and coffee. But there’s this misconception of ‘coffee, tea or me?'” says Ricci, emphasizing that she’d never be a part of something that denigrated women.
Research and wearing tight undergarments helped her get into the period milieu, but she’s glad her character is the rebellious type who gets demerits for leaving her girdles at home. “I don’t wear them as much as the other girls,” she says. “My character’s a troublemaker.”
