Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 11/27/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The broadcast upswing continued into another day. The only network with atypical listings was ABC, where holiday specials How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Shrek the Halls were just about even with year-ago levels. The finale of Dancing with the Stars, finally given a chance to air fully apart from The Voice, managed to easily outrate all other points this season. Sure, it was still way down year-to-year (vs. last fall's 4.1), but that's been the case all season, and usually to a larger extent. So a generally miserable season for the franchise at least ends on a less miserable note.
  •  CBS saw the mothership NCIS take a big surge, but that upswing didn't really continue into NCIS: Los Angeles and Vegas, which had to face DWTS this time (when it's usually the mothership doing so). This is another piece of evidence that DWTS has an incredible amount of crossover with CBS programming; see also CBS' big surge in the Dancing-free 9:00 hour last Monday.
  • Regularly-scheduled Fox and NBC on average upswung somewhere in the mid-teens vs. last week.

Granted there is some inflation due to the finale factor, but I wonder if this will convince ABC to schedule the spring season of Dancing with the Stars at 9 pm. The show needs the help in the higher HUT hour, especially once DST starts up again in March.

Meanwhile, it looks like this is going to be a good year for the "classic" holiday specials: Charlie Brown's Halloween & Thanksgiving enjoyed healthy bumps, Frosty the Snowman pulled a 2.0 on Friday, and Grinch & Shrek stayed almost even. Can Charlie Brown's Christmas keep the streak alive tonight (against Christmas programming on NBC)?
