Spotted Ratings, Thursday 11/15/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Bazinga. The Big Bang Theory swung up to easily its biggest number of the season and, after a finals boost, actually beat its highest Thursday demo rating ever. It also had a series high in total viewers. That good mojo continued for CBS with Two and a Half Men and Person of Interest also at season highs. Elementary is still rather modest but it was up a touch as well.
  • The only other noticeable changes came on Fox. The X Factor finished off a week of upswing, but it looks like Glee was just waiting till the episode after the return from hiatus to take its big dip.

I can not believe that X Factor and Glee are so low. I know that X has always been a disappointment and everyone's been calling Glee a fad since late Season One, but for crying out loud Glee was doing double these ratings two years ago! At this rate, when it gets a War post, the show'll be over!

I love Person of Interest, but it is far too serialized for its own good. It's gaining momentum now, and it's up year-over-year, but when it goes on break, I'm afraid it might lose steam. I still think it would have benefited tremendously from a post-Super Bowl episode to introduce people to not only the basic concept but at least one of either HR, Root, or Reese's CIA background.
