Don’t Worry: Nobody is Watching ABC’s “Work It” Anyway

For a select few of commenters who said that all this social media controversy about ABC's "Work It" show and its silly Puerto Rican Drug Dealer Joke would only give the show more publicity and higher ratings, this week's ratings for the show didn't increase at all, so that argument is moot.

As reported by


ABC’s quasi-controversial cross-dressing comedy Work It took a tumble in the ratings Tuesday night.

The show delivered 5.1 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the adult demo — down 20 percent this week and down 27 percent from its lead in, Last Man Standing (7.9 million, 2.2). If/when ABC axes the show, it will open up another slot on the schedule, which might result in Cougar Town returning earlier than it otherwise would have (either on Tuesdays or another night).
