Spotted Ratings, Saturday 4/20/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • I asked on Twitter this weekend whether Smash and Vegas are the two biggest disappointments of the last two TV seasons. Either way, they were dealt another significant embarrassment as both aired in originals in the Saturday 8/7c hour and both lost to the surely muuuch less expensive ABC reality series Bet On Your Baby. Despite adjusting down in finals, it held onto its week one number.
  • But Fox dominated yet another surprisingly original-heavy Saturday with the return of UFC, which was a few ticks below the 2.1 posted in the December and January telecasts.
