- As I continue to note, my viewing level estimators are not very accurate, but it appears there was a tangible Daylight Saving effect at 8:00, where I estimated about 38% A18-49 viewing at 8:00 last Sunday and
estimate about 34% this week. That estimated fourpercentage point (or ~10%) drop in viewing likely contributed to the week-to-week drops of all 8:00 programs: Secret Millionaire (-18%), The Amazing Race (-4%), America's Next Great Restaurant (-13%), The Simpsons (-11%) and Bob's Burgers (-9%). Also at 7:00, America's Funniest Home Videos (-6%) and Dateline (-21%) took hits.
- EDIT: Per Zedman2 in the comments, the actual drop across the whole night as noted in an ABC press release was just 6% (36.6% -> 34.5%). That was almost certainly higher in the first two hours than in the last two, so my figures above are probably pretty close to accurate.
- Second EDIT: Thanks to a couple 8:00 shows going up in the finals, my 8:00 A18-49 using TV estimation rose to 35.2%, down 7% week-to-week.
- The last two hours of primetime also seemed a bit down viewing-level wise, but not significantly. With some of the heavy-hitters in those two hours in repeats, the big winner was CSI: Miami, which tied its second-biggest number of the season and hit its highest demo since October. The Cleveland Show was another somewhat surprising riser, up two ticks from last week despite Family Guy going into repeats.
