Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 5/23/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The final day of the regular season, as usual, was dominated by the American Idol finale, which put Fox ahead of the combined broadcast competition. The 6.4 demo after finals was down 30% from the huge year-ago finale, and that was a tiny bit smaller than Idol's typical year-to-year declines all season.
  • ABC also wrapped up for the season, with The Middle and Modern Family barely up from last week and Apartment 23 and Revenge seeing pretty nice bounces in their last original telecasts before they head to new timeslots in the fall.
  • NBC had some originals and was also relatively unaffected by Idol as Off Their Rockers put up fairly typical numbers and Law and Order: SVU had a solid increase.
