Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/14/11: Paul Not a Riser


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Atrocious start for The Paul Reiser Show, which ties Chaos for the weakest series premiere rating of the season. That performance is worse than all but the last two eps of Perfect Couples (1.0), which is no accomplishment considering those episodes were mixed in with repeats. It didn't get much help from its Community lead-in which took a huge dive from its last original to a series low.
  • With CBS and (most of) ABC in repeats, most other stuff did decently. In the prelims, the Will Ferrell-fueled The Office, 30 Rock, Outsourced and Nikita were all up double-digits from their last originals. Bones also rose and had its best post-Idol retention this season. The Mentalist tied its strongest repeat of the season.
