Spotted Ratings, Thursday 2/16/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Hey, have you heard that it's been a bad week for TV ratings yet? If not, here's your heads-up. Almost everyone was down again. It was kind of understandable where most of the biggest victims resided (9/8c) because American Idol made Fox about three points stronger than usual. But a 20% week-to-week collapse for Grey's Anatomy on Private Practice crossover night still looks bad, The Office became the latest show whose season one ratings we can now disregard when discussing series lows (it was actually adjusted up in finals to tie its series low on 4/26/05), and the momentum for Person of Interest came to a halt. (EDIT: See this post on the heavy-DVRing theory for a possible explanation.)
