Spotted Ratings, Sunday 4/15/12

  • Hey, I guess the CBS viewers won't tune in for everything procedural! CBS totally bombed with the series premiere of NYC 22, which finished more than 30% behind the mostly CSI: Miami timeslot average. You know it's a bad premiere night when you can't even hold all of your The Good Wife lead-in. Looks like this won't be complicating the CBS bubble situation.
  • The finale of ABC's low-rated Titanic miniseries proved a pretty dreadful lead-in for GCB. If it can perk back up to the very upper 1's in two weeks when it gets the Desperate Housewives lead-in back, ABC will probably forget about this result. For now, it certainly can't be considered a good sign.

As it is, I don't think there is a bubble for CBS dramas. If they want to run three new dramas, a new comedy hour AND Undercover Boss in the fall, they'll have to bench one of the dramas they renewed back in March. Any renewals out of the batch on the fence would force that twice. I can't see that happening.

Spot said...

Not sure if you're disagreeing with me or not, but my point was that a significant success by NYC would've made that situation even more difficult! :)

I think my point was that it needed to perform at about the level inhabited by CSI, The Mentalist and Five-0 to have a shot at another season. Landing even a couple tenths below that would've doomed it due to lack of shelf space. And it landed FAR below that level.

As Terry Kinney's character on the show said to the rookies, "Not a good start at all". But in this case, the other rookies did better, not worse...

Spot said...

I think CBS will launch two instead of three dramas in the Fall, because it has been canceling one of them anyway: Unforgettable, The Defenders, Three Rivers, The Ex-List.

They'll have to do SOMETHING interesting next year, and if it's not veteran-to-midseason...
