Spotted Ratings, Thursday 11/1/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC won the evening and was 81% stronger than last week with The CMA Awards, but it was down by a full point year-to-year.
  • Fox's The X Factor problem persists, with its two-hour return to the Thursday schedule down by about 20% from its last Thursday airing. It was perhaps hurt somewhat by NBC pulling its comedies in favor of The Voice, which repeated the Monday episode that many may have missed because of Sandy. It was 16% weaker than the usual comedy numbers but certainly had more overlap with its music-themed competitors. NBC then had its highest result since the season premiere from a Sandy-themed Rock Center.
  • Elementary finally reversed its downward trajectory, while The Big Bang Theory began its seemingly annual November upswing. The Vampire Diaries also had a big night.

Honestly, one of the reasons I thought for sure they would have two hours of comedy was so they could put Big Bang into the higher HUT 9 PM slot. It is such a waste to see that huge lead-in used to prop up a 10-year-old show rather than a newbie, especially with how soft Partners launched. I don't know if Friend Me would do any better, but if HIMYM and 2 1/2 Men end in the next year like most people seem to think, CBS'll have two more gaping holes to fill.
