Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/7/11


WHAT MATTERS:
  • A tough evening for pretty much everything at 8:00. American Idol dominated but tied its second-lowest number of the season. The Big Bang Theory tied a season low and lead-out Rules of Engagement was just two ticks ahead of its season low. The Vampire Diaries returned from a six-week hiatus at an outright series low, while Perfect Couples tied its series low in its last scheduled ep.
  • Beyond the 8:00 hour, the return of Nikita tied a series low and unlikely returnee Outsourced also tied a series low with most of the rest of NBC in repeats, but everything else did OK. Bones had its second-best post-Idol retention this season. And Grey's Anatomy, The Office, Parks & Recreation and 30 Rock all had some of their strongest repeats of the season.
