Spotted Ratings, Thursday 12/6/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was a breakout evening for ABC's sophomore drama Scandal, which was three tenths above the previous season high point (last week) and two tenths above the previous series high point (set at the end of last season). Is this sustainable? We'll see. There was a big cliff-hanger leading into last night's episode, but then it ended on another humdinger.
  • Large downward adjustments after finals left CBS, like NBC and Fox, at pretty normal levels. The worst night was had by the CW, with new season lows for both shows.
