Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 10/23/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC finally completed its incompatible Tuesday lineup. Happy Endings and Apartment 23 returned at a tick or two better than my super-low expectations in their first airings on a new night. Does that mean they did "well"? Not really, but it might be a level that ABC could at least stick out for the season, if this is in fact the level. The biggest downside for ABC appeared to be the further damage to Private Practice.
  • It was another day of carnage for the newbies. Vegas seemed to have steadied the ship in week three but took a huge shot on the other side of the week-ago debate preemption, and CBS' NCIS pair also took drops. The CW's Emily Owens M.D. was way down from the already basically DOA week-ago 0.5 premiere.
  • On NBC, Go On and The New Normal took hits against the arrival of additional comedy competition. Fox's anchor comedies remained fairly steady, and Ben and Kate rallied a bit back inside the New Girl halo, but the special 9:30 The X Factor did not really work.

Parenthood doing surprisingly nice and steady. It premiered with 76% retention, followed by 82%, 90%, 94% and 100%. Now it's actually growing from New Normal lead-in (if this preliminaries hold).
Good utility player for NBC.

Honestly, the big Vegas drop doesn't surprise me. The show's proven to be more lifeless than the woman who was run over by a car at the beginning of last night's episode. A major disappointment.

Spot said...

Yes. I REALLY wanted to like this but I've been bored by it. Aside from Chiklis, I'd rather watch the similar Longmire on A&E.

Spot said...

The funny thing is, CBS will look at its low ratings, decide that the show was too serialized and immediately order more procedurals.

Spot said...

Here's something interesting: Longmire the character is played by one of the Agents from The Matrix...
