Face The Ace

Face The Ace, a new poker show airing on NBC prime time Saturday night, found itself in last place in the ratings.  The news can't be good for a show that went up against a bunch of reruns.

Fox won the night with two installments of Cops and America's Most Wanted.

Face The Ace had 1.6 million viewers and a 0.4/2 share.  Compare that with America's Most Wanted in the same time slot with nearly 5 million viewers during its second half (the 9:30 pm to 10:00 pm time period). 

Over the past few years poker shows have enjoyed top ratings on Cable including the Travel Network (World Poker Tour) and ESPN (coverage of the World Series of Poker).

Every day contestants appear on the show and play against professionals like Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius.   Contestants could win up to $1 million.
