Spotted Ratings, Thursday 6/21/12 & 6/28/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC rolled with the last game of the NBA Finals on the 21st, but it was up just a couple ticks from Game 4. Last night, the NBA then had its yearly draft on ESPN (1.4), which was down a tenth from last year's edition.
  • ABC then brought back Wipeout on the 28th. It was down 17% from its year-ago Thursday premiere (2.4 on 6/23/11) but certainly looked pretty good compared with pretty much everything else on broadcast, including its fading lead-in Duets and Fox's crumbling dating shows.
  • Last night was mostly about cable, where FX's Charlie Sheen-led Anger Management (2.1 at 9:00, 2.3 at 9:30) beat all the broadcasters and marked the biggest sitcom series premiere in cable history. Despite the monster lead-in, FX's Wilfred (1.2) and Louie (0.7) showed no improvement on their year-ago premieres, but being even could be considered something of a win considering how much they dropped over the course of last summer. The premiere of FX late night effort Brand X (0.5) then basically tied Conan (0.5) and trailed The Daily Show (0.7).
  • At 10/9c, USA's Suits (1.2, 1.3) beat all the broadcasters in its slot on the 28th. It's grown for two straight weeks and is USA's top drama this week (edging Burn Notice (1.2)). MTV welcomed back Awkward (0.9), which did better than its year-ago series premiere (0.8 on 7/19/11) but fell significantly behind the 1.2ish level of its late-season one surge (when it aired after the very strong Teen Mom). Seems fine since lead-in Snooki & JWoww (0.9) is hardly a Jersey Shore-sized program.
