Spotted Ratings, Saturday 4/6/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS' coverage of the NCAA men's basketball Final Four posted the highest ratings of the week. The primetime game between Michigan and Syracuse was 4% above the year-ago Final Four game, while the half-hour of overrun from the early evening contest was down 5%.
  • Smash in its Saturday premiere went down by nearly half from the last Tuesday episode and was outrated by the surrounding NBC programs. Amusingly, its 0.9 lead-in from the second half-hour of a The Voice repeat was better than what it got from The New Normal a couple times on Tuesday. Sounds like the show is getting bumped back an hour in future weeks.
