Spotted Ratings, Thursday 5/3/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • I guess last week's NFL Draft did matter, as the seemingly most-damaged network (CBS) bounced back. The Big Bang Theory was up double-digits and widened its head-to-head thumping of American Idol. It also tied the Wednesday Idol for tops on all of TV this week. Rules of Engagement and The Mentalist also rallied by multiple ticks. Their only bad news: it is rather concerning that Person of Interest didn't make much of a comeback.
  • NBC saw 30 Rock drop from its live episode ratings last week but was even to a little up with Community, The Office and Parks and Recreation.
  • On Fox, Touch mercifully stopped bleeding, but it was a really weak episode for ABC's Missing, which dropped well below previous results and could only tie The Vampire Diaries.
