Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/2/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was "winter finale" night for the ABC Sunday shows, which will return later this winter. And it wasn't really worth writing home about, as Once Upon a Time was even and Revenge only rallied by a bit from last week's super-low level.
  • Fox sat out its animation anchors but saw the second-tier shows hold up decently after repeats. Bob's Burgers was down a couple tenths and American Dad! didn't drop at all. But in fairness, their lead-ins didn't drop that much because The Simpsons and Family Guy are among TV's best repeaters relative to their original numbers.
  • Finals updates: NBC ended up with a relatively normal Sunday Night Football number even though it was a 5-6 team against a 3-8 team. That's the power of the Dallas Cowboys. Overrun night helped CBS' The Amazing Race and The Good Wife finish near their season high points. And another breakthrough season for The Walking Dead ended with no real spike for the finale (5.4). Still, the season as a whole was up 56% year-to-year and currently outrates any broadcast entertainment program, so I have a feeling they'll take it.
