Justin Bieber's NBC special flops in ratings
Bieber’s special disappointed in the ratings Wednesday night. Even by summer TV’s modest ratings standards, All Around the World (3.3 million viewers, 0.9 adults 18-49 rating) was a flop. And it’s only part one of a two-part special chronicling the Beebs’ promotional tour for his new album Believe. NBC came in fourth place in the 8 p.m. hour, with CBS’ aptly named Dogs in the City (4.9 million, 1.0) edging out Bieber.
Meanwhile, Fox’s SYTYCD (6.5 million, 2.4) led the night, though was down a tenth this week. ABC’s Duets (4.2 million, 1.1) was unchanged from last week.
His latest album, Believe, scored the biggest first week sales of the year, opened with 374K, which is good but still lower than the original predictions. It fell to #3 in 2nd week, selling 116K (69% drop)
Do you think Justin Bieber is really fading away like these previous teen phenomena, or he's becoming more of an 'established' artist? Or is it still too early to tell?

Lady Gaga is a Legend. I just accepted that and now im happy. Evryone should do it as well.
Yes, Believe is too generic and try-hard imo. He's not that talented, but he could've done a lot better. Or maybe I'm just overestimating him. Anyways, at least his replacement (One Direction) can sing live and do it well.
i stan for your mom. my faves: christina aguilera, beyoncé, mariah carey and madonna.
