Spotted Ratings, Thursday 2/21/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The shows I said last week would be most affected by Valentine's Day were the only ones that showed any significant post-Valentine's bounce-back: The Vampire Diaries, a two-hour American Idol and Grey's Anatomy, which was up multiple tenths despite facing Idol.
  • Most other shows didn't really bounce back at all, including the CBS lineup, while a couple were some were actually down: Community, week two of Zero Hour and, most surprisingly, the Parks and Recreation wedding. I would say this is a worrisome result for Parks, yet it was still the highest-rated comedy on NBC this week. And they aired four original hours!!

Anyone wanna gamble on how long until Zero Hour gets pulled?

Spot said...

I think it will get one more week. Then ABC can burn off Apt 23 in the slot.

I say at least one more week. Once it drops below 1.0 (becomes a "zero hour") I'd start to get worried, because Shark Tank repeats would clearly do better. That may be next week, although Big Bang does go into repeats.

You've been waiting months to make that pun, haven't you?

Spot said...

I already used it in the Best Case/Worst Case post, if memory serves.

Spot said...

You've been waiting months to make it again, then.


Don't lie. I grasp the process that go thru your head.
