Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 3/27/12: Body Improof

  • ABC got back into the Tuesday mix with the return of the Dancing with the Stars results, down 30% from the year-ago Tuesday premiere but, thanks to no Voice on the evening, still down less year-to-year than the first two Monday editions. The real story was the huge boost this provided to Body of Proof, which tied its second-best number of the season. There are just two more episodes left this season, but if it can maintain this level, it probably becomes a more interesting case than it's appeared for the last several months. 
  • Fox kept downticking with New Girl and Raising Hope, though the newly installed Hope repeat did make a tiny improvement on the week-ago I Hate My Teenage Daughter. And NBC took the biggest hit, with The Biggest Loser and and Fashion Star both down double-digits against relatively full-fledged competition.

The issue I have w/ taking the BOP number as any sign of a possible renewal shot is that ABC will judge the show's time w/out Dancing more heavily as to whether or not it's capable of being a viable show long term

Spot said...

Maybe they SHOULD do that, but they have kept many series alive for many years that were nothing more than decent pairings with a big hit, like Brothers & Sisters and Private Practice. That said, I dunno if this result is good enough for that kind of treatment.

Oh, yeah, I forgot, this is ABC we're talking about...

Too bad there's no one show out there that's aired behind the Fall and Spring Results show in the same season. That might help illuminate the situation further.
