Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 3/20/12

  • NBC got a fairly promising week two out of Fashion Star, up by double digits from its week-ago premiere. It's still dropping out of The Biggest Loser, but this should at the very least ensure that the show will be around long enough to air after The Voice's results shows in April.
  • CBS' originals were back in action for the first time since they stumbled through February sweeps, and the NCIS duo kept on dropping. Since it's the first post-Daylight Saving airing, this particular drop isn't really unexpected (in fact, NCIS looks Truly stronger than some recent episodes), but it does mark a fourth straight down original for the show, and the sum total of those drops is kinda worrying.
  • The increased competition and Daylight Saving effect brought a lot of ugliness elsewhere, as Last Man Standing and Raising Hope both took significant hits, while Fox's :30 sitcoms just keep decaying. I Hate My Teenage Daughter got pulled this afternoon, but I actually think Breaking In is the Truly weaker show (by a long shot, in fact). But it too shall be gone shortly. The only decent news came from Cougar Town, which managed to pick up a couple ticks with an original lead-in for the first time in three weeks.
