Spotted Ratings, Thursday 12/15/11 (FINALS)


As we enter arguably the two slowest ratings weeks of the year, I may wait till finals comes out on a lot of these posts for the rest of December. I'll just play it by ear.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS had original entertainment programs for 2.5 hours, with only The Big Bang Theory in repeats. Rules of Engagement dropped a relatively expected amount under the circumstances (still a season low), then the rest of the night was steady and above average from there.

Yep, time to relax. Beyond Fear Factor week 2, The X Factor finale, and Christmas Day sports, it's reruns, movies, and reruns of specials.
