Spotted Ratings, Saturday 8/20/11 (FINALS)

Doing my first Saturday post in three months just to note some major adjustments from preliminaries.

  • NBC's broadcast of the Visa Gymnastics Championships (0.8) came down four tenths from its preliminary 1.2 number due to local NFL preemptions. However, the event was still up a couple tenths from last year's 0.6 on 8/14/10.
  • ABC had a rebroadcast of Disney Channel's Phineas and Ferb movie (0.5 and 2.0 million viewers overall), which trailed most recent ABC movie offerings and seems another piece of evidence that kid programming doesn't really belong in broadcast primetime. The movie averaged 7.64 million viewers in its first-run telecast a couple weeks ago.
  • Since I haven't been talking Saturday this summer, just wanted to note that Fox has been experimenting with animation reruns in the old America's Most Wanted timeslot. As has been the case most Saturdays, this week's choices American Dad! (0.6) and The Cleveland Show (0.6) did significantly worse than the Cops encores at 8/7c (0.9 and 1.0). This fall, the hour will go to reruns of new drama Terra Nova.
Above based on FINAL adults 18-49 ratings unless otherwise noted.
