Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 2/19/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was yet another Terrible Tuesday on network TV, particularly in the 10:00 hour. Despite Smash taking a large post-premiere drop and Vegas remaining one of CBS' weakest offerings, Body of Proof was not able to attract any real demo interest in its third season premiere, and was down nearly half from the season two premiere. The show had 82% viewership retention and 46% demo retention from another special Tuesday The Bachelor. That's incompatibility, kids!
  • 9:00 was nearly as bad, with NCIS: Los Angeles and New Girl and The Mindy Project all down double digits and Go On and The New Normal somehow finding even more new depths. As for the CW's Cult (0.3), well... I guess it's a lesson not to overthink terrible scheduling. Would've been interesting to see what it would've done after The Vampire Diaries, but the end result probably would have been the same. Clearly there was almost nobody willfully showing up here.

I'm seriously coming around to hate The Question. And I'm dropping "But I think It will be close" from my repetoire. Oh, also, I'm listening to my first instinct going forward. It took at least a full point from me.

I knew BOP was going to dud. I just knew it. That's what I get for talking myself out of it. And we even have solid evidence of mass rejection, cause that Bachelor special was about on par w/ the last one...

Spot said...

I tried to talk you out of it! :(

Spot said...

The saddest thing of all is, I nearly flopped back to under.

Spot said...

I am so angry at myself for coming back to change my BoP guess to over. Just wishful thinking on my part. And I should have seen Cult's result coming as well, but with that one I knew I was gambling more. What a horrible horrible night for broadcast

Spot said...

Man. BoP and Cult absolutely fell flat on their faces. Wow. Does it seem like we have more outright flops now than in recent memory? Lone Star was a big shock a few years back, but now its like every few months this happens.
