Spotted Ratings, Thursday 7/5/12

Monday thru Wednesday were pretty boring on cable and bee-cast, so in my laziness I'm gonna save those for two-a-day mode next week.

  • People have been asking all week, "Which days do you take off when the 4th of July is on a Wednesday?" I was interested in how that would shake out in the TV viewing world, but the results were fairly inconclusive. There was a significant viewing decline on Tuesday the 3rd, as is typical for the eve of holidays, and of course the 4th saw super-low 18-49 viewing, somewhere in the mid-20%'s. But both Monday the 2nd and Thursday the 5th looked relatively normal, with Thursday seeing several broadcast shows on the upswing. Most notable among these was the growth from Take Me Out, which early in the afternoon got Fox to reverse its previous decision to exile the show to Saturday.
  • Of course, maybe broadcast just benefited because people were fleeing like mad from FX. Anger Management (1.3) was down 38% from its one-hour average a week ago, continuing a tradition of huge week two drops for big cable sitcom premieres. Wilfred (0.7) was also down 38% and Louie (0.6) shed 21%. MTV's Awkward (0.7, -20% week-to-week) had a rough week two as well.
