Spotted Ratings, Thursday 1/26/12: Finder an Audience (FINALS)

  • What an interesting story this is becoming. The Finder made huge week-to-week strides once again. This time, there's another "excuse" (ABC and CBS went into repeats, plus no The Office and an Up All Night repeat on NBC) but the extent of the increase is still pretty shocking.
  • So much for the 100th episode bump. The Big Bang Theory ticked up week-to-week in episode 101 to a new Thursday high and widened its gap with American Idol (preliminary 4.8 at 8:00, final 5.5 overall). Rob was flat in week three, but its 36% drop from TBBT would be worse than any of Rules' data points after Big Bang in the last two seasons.
  • Parks and Recreation had a rough night with no The Office original. It was sandwiched by a couple 30 Rock originals (1.6 at 8:00, 1.9 at 9:00).

Y'know, as it stands, this actually ties Big Bang's Thursday high from back in November.

I guess FOX can cancel House now.

Spot said...

Let's not leap to that yet. (although I wouldn't mind it, House is burned out) Finder is still trailing House, and I doubt it can do this once Office/Up All Night, Greys and POI return next week...

It is odd to see every other network simultaneously get that much weaker in the course of one week, but at least it adds some more intrigue to next Thursday!
