Spotted Ratings, Thursday 2/9/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was mostly a pretty steady Thursday, but there were a couple notable movers at 9/8c, where ABC got its best ratings from Grey's Anatomy in over a month while NBC saw The Office completely collapse, three tenths below any previous result this season. Perhaps it's being held up by some shared audience with Parks and Recreation? This week's 8:30 episode of 30 Rock finished behind all Parks results this season.
  • In new show news, The Finder dropped back to its week two numbers while Rob was steady despite yet another Thursday high from lead-in The Big Bang Theory.

Those Rob numbers are getting dangerously close to Gentleman territory in terms of retention. I don't blame them for tuning out, though...

I have been surprised that TRUE is not harsher to Rob because of that. But I guess a low-viewed yet competitive slot makes up for a lot of the lead-in drop.

Office at 8, Roseanne at 9 next season?
