Spotted Ratings, Saturday 12/31/11 (FINALS): New Year's Ratin' Eve

  • Didn't see this one coming! ABC got pretty ginormous ratings out of a full night of New Year's Rockin' Eve, with the average for the first two hours close to what the 10:00 special usually gets. Then, no doubt benefiting from the two extra hours, the 10:00 special set records. There was huge build throughout the evening: 1.5 -> 2.2 -> 2.8 -> 3.3 -> 3.9 -> 4.3.
  • Dick Clark Productions only widened their gap over the primetime portion of NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly, which finished well behind last year's 1.2. Earlier in the NBC evening (and on Fox) were some noble attempts to hit the lowest ratings in big-four history, but the repeats of Grimm and Terra Nova did not oblige.
