Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/28/11: Sweep Carell


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Sweeps begins, Steve Carell's The Office run ends. His final episode pulled a 4.2 demo in the finals, one of the season's bigger numbers but not a season high and frankly a mild disappointment for such a big episode, though some people who predicted much higher than I (my guess was 4.8) may feel even more strongly. Still, Carell does at least go out winning the 9/8c hour against a full complement of competition. 30 Rock rounded out the NBC evening with a weak showing at 10:30.
  • Probably the ugliest night was had by CBS, which saw The Big Bang Theory score its lowest demo since early season 2, Rules of Engagement hit its lowest demo in almost two years, CSI hit a series low and The Mentalist hit its second-lowest rating ever. All were down double digits from their last originals.
  • Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice were also near lows, though the drop from the last original is quite misleading because of the huge spike the last original Grey's got for the musical. Grey's was right at its pre-musical levels.
  • Rounding out the 9/8c carnage, Bones had easily its worst post-Idol showing and Nikita hit an outright series low.
