Spotted Ratings, Monday 10/29/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Hurricane Sandy made for a crazy evening in the TV ratings world on many levels. Power outages surely brought down overall viewing somewhat, but people shut into their houses by the weather and viewing of hurricane coverage on cable and on local broadcast affiliates appears to have more than made up for that, even by already-high Monday viewing standards. These things are tough to gauge in the True2 scores, so I wouldn't read a ton into those for this week. Three of five networks eschewed their regular programming, helping the competitive situation for ABC and NBC. All of this stuff combined somehow added up to somewhat normal numbers from those remaining originals.

A lot of the ABC stuff came down big from prelims. What I'm figuring is that they were affected the most by preemptions...

Spot said...

NBC made the right decision not preempting their schedule.

That said, I'm not sure they're making the right decision preempting their Thursday schedule with a Voice repeat. Why couldn't they have put the repeat on Saturday?

Spot said...

Because, there are those of us who enjoy those Chicano Fire repeats, and NBC knows it...

Spot said...

In case they want to do another news special on Thursday night.

I had a pre-emption in Philadelphia, but was able to catch The Voice on a secondary NBC station.
