- CBS had the best night, with all three shows up double digits in their season finales. The biggest mover of the three was The Good Wife, up 20% from last week in what'll be its last airing on Tuesday.
- NBC also had good things to report, with The Biggest Loser up three tenths and back to above its season average and The Voice holding about steady after its big drop last week. There was definitely reason to worry after all the negative reaction to the battle rounds, but this was a good hold.
- A special airing of Breaking In dropped by 41% from its much-lower-than-usual Raising Hope lead-in and was down 43% from its last post-Idol airing. It's now dead beyond any doubt, I would think. I was interested in how it would do because I like studying big lead-in changes, but I didn't have any expectations that it'd make Fox change its mind. I think it had to be at probably around a 2.0+ to get them to think about it. I predicted a 1.5 and figured that anything above that would mean the show was at least stronger than it had appeared to be, for whatever that would've been worth. Instead... it's about as strong as it appeared to this retentionista, maybe a little weaker.
