Spotted Ratings, Monday 11/21/11


WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's new game show You Deserve It did mediocre at best even before the downward adjustments in finals. After finals, it looks really ugly, with the show losing more than half of the Dancing with the Stars demo. Good luck next week with DWTS over. Castle then perked back up decently in the first of its annual crappy-lead-in tests.
  • All of CBS' lineup came down a bit. The biggest drop belonged to Hawaii Five-0, which was a bit inflated last week because it didn't have to face usual drama competition Castle.
  • Terra Nova continues to descend toward cancellation, down yet another two ticks in relatively "normal" circumstances and matching its series low set on low-HUT Halloween. The only positive looking forward is that there will be less competition for the show's closing weeks. It's probably got to rebound to have a chance, and maybe in a big way.

I hope the dinosaurs eat all those people.

HIMYM keeps surprising me. I thought the show was fading away as of last spring, and now, it looks to be a huge hit again.

"You Deserve It" is an apt title for a show that deserves to die a horrific, embarrassing death.

Seconded. I had to stop watching after episode three involved "making out = cure for deadly neuropathogen" as a major plot point.
