Spotted Ratings, Friday 4/26/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Most shows were normal to kinda low on the first Friday of sweeps. The only real surprise was the latest ghastly batch of Happy Endings numbers. If you're into using percentages, then nearly half of the Happy Endings audience has rejected the show in the last two weeks! Oh, margin of error...
  • Combined with a season low for NBC's Grimm in a slot where there originally wasn't supposed to be an original, it makes me wonder if there was at least a little program guide confusion caused by the mass pre-emptions last week. Doesn't matter either way, as Grimm has its renewal, and its post-Voice episodes starting this Tuesday will be the more interesting data at this point.
  • The NFL Draft also populated this night and may have been a factor, though it's never nearly as big a deal on the second night. Its combined 1.5 rating on ESPN2/NFLN in primetime was down a tick year-to-year and has been applied as competition for True2 scores.
