Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 2/22/12

  • It was another mostly down day on broadcast, which is pretty disheartening following last week's bloodbath. The only really big dropper was the two-hour American Idol, down a full point from last week's Wednesday telecast and, after no finals adjustment, down a rather staggering 35% year-to-year.
  • Other notable bad news: The Middle and Suburgatory hit new season lows again; but the consolation for the latter is that it built on its lead-in for the first time since its sixth week on the air. Survivor lost 10% of its premiere rating and seems assuredly headed below the 3.0 plateau for the first time ever, Whitney came back to earth after its impressive resiliency last week, and Law and Order: SVU found yet another historic low and finished behind fellow NBC drama Parenthood this week. But it won't be Truly weaker because of its strides on that still-dreaded Rock Center lead-in.
