Spotted Ratings, Friday 4/5/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was post-Easter rally time on ABC, where Happy Endings saw a surprisingly substantial rally from its painful 0.9/0.7 week-ago debut. I don't think that's enough to put its ratings in the renewal-worthy column; it's of course still well behind what Last Man Standing was doing at the end of the year. But it's enough to at least make the next few weeks worth keeping an eye on. Friday king Shark Tank also had a noticeable upswing, tying its second-highest number of the season, and 20/20 (1.8) was also way above average in tying a season high. So... this all went almost suspiciously well, and it held up after finals.
  • CBS had no such luck with the Friday debut of Vegas, which came back 40% below its Tuesday low point, well behind the usual CSI: NY numbers, and it couldn't even get to the 1.0 pulled by the Golden Boy tryout a few weeks ago. It was especially bad considering its lead-in Undercover Boss actually had a pretty good week.
