Spotted Ratings, Thursday 5/10/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was a fairly dull penultimate Thursday of the season, and most of the season finales didn't see any bounce. The only up finale was also the only show to get cancelled, The Secret Circle. The Big Bang Theory remained on top of the evening but was actually down a few ticks for the #WolowitzWedding.
  • What a late-season run Grey's Anatomy is having, as it gained a couple more ticks in its penultimate episode and was actually on the year-to-year upside this week. We'll see if it can hold off the Once Upon a Time and Desperate Housewives finales on Sunday for top drama of the week once again.
