Spotted Ratings, Friday 4/27/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Though upward finals adjustments for the dramas tempered the damage somewhat, CBS still had its second straight bad day of sweeps. Undercover Boss and Blue Bloods hit season lows.
  • Another show seemingly running out of steam late in the season is ABC's Primetime: What Would You Do? Shark Tank also took a double-digit hit. ABC's only good news was that 20/20 pulled back ahead of Dateline at 10/9c. (Its "Last" number compares it to the special on Monday, but it was up two ticks from last week's Friday edition.)
  • The Finder followed up last week's spike with a one-tenth drop as all three reality franchises returned to the 8/7c hour.
  • The combined ESPN/NFL Network rating for night two of the NFL Draft (1.6) was slightly down from last year (1.7) but the NFL Network remained on the positive side (up from 0.3 to 0.4).
