Spotted Ratings, Thursday 11/8/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The latest of the The Voice / The X Factor duels again went decisively to The Voice. While The Voice again provided a triple-digit timeslot improvement, yet another special night led to yet another huge drop. The Voice provided a significant boost to The Office, whose 8:30 lead-in was about two points better than it had been all year. Factor out the fact that its lead-in was a point weaker than in early October and it looks like Glee was pretty close to the same show as in its last episode pre-hiatus.
  • On CBS, it looks like "The Miley Cyrus Effect" might be an actual thing; Two and a Half Men has now broken a 4 in each of its Miley-starring eps and averaged about a 3.6 in the non-Miley eps. And ABC's Last Resort was able to get back one tenth after its extreme drop last week.

Based on this very limited sample, it looks like musicians give more of a pop to sitcoms than dramas or reality shows. If the prelim 4.0 holds in finals, Miley's given 2.5 Men its season highs so far this year. Britney Spears' guest spot on HIMYM was that show's series high through season 3. And Reba was far and away the bright spot for The WB and CW sitcom-wise.
