Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 3/21/12: Bent and Broken


WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC's Bent now takes over as the lowest-rated in-season weeknight scripted premiere on the big four ever, taking the title from last season's NBC entry The Paul Reiser Show (1.1 on 4/14/11). This was brutal, made all the worse by the fact that NBC was otherwise on the upswing with Whitney and Are You There, Chelsea?.
  • CBS bounced around a lot; Survivor and CSI were down (but each got a tick back in finals), Criminal Minds was way up
  • Fox had a soft showing from American Idol, down three tenths from last week, while Happy Endings was the only original on ABC and was a couple ticks below its last post-repeat airing two weeks ago. (The Modern Family repeat was four tenths weaker than on that date.) ABC's 10/9c encore of Missing did OK and equaled the Thursday premiere encore of GCB from a couple weeks ago.

I doubt that encore rating will mean much for Missing week two. That show was a dog that made zero sense visually or storyline-wise, and if it weren't for the fact that the community at Sepinwall's blog ate it up and asked for seconds, I'd place a bet on an equal or larger drop vs. week two of Charlie's Angels.
