Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 9/18/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC had another pretty promising Tuesday, with The Voice following the Monday trend and surprisingly heading up by double digits. Go On ended up with a dead-even second Tuesday airing, which seems like a pretty encouraging result despite the bigger lead-in. The biggest decliner on NBC was The New Normal, down 12%, while Parenthood lost a tenth. Generally speaking, consider the second test passed, but the next one will be a lot tougher (as ABC, Fox and CBS should all be much stronger next week).
  • Fox wrapped up a pretty weak season of So You Think You Can Dance down by 20% from the year-ago finale. Will be interesting to see what happens with this one.
  • Even ABC and CBS are warming up for the new season as their repeats all posted their best numbers in the slots all summer. FX won the 10/9c hour again but was down a half-point from last week with Sons of Anarchy (2.3).

I have to say, I'm surprised that Go On and New Normal didn't track higher along with The Voice. That's .5 extra rating points compared to last week that went nowhere. TNN looks especially vulnerable with with FOX and ABC comedies yet to come.
