Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/18/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC's Hannibal had a disappointing week three, dropping a significant three tenths from its fairly good week two number. With the return of original competition looming next week, a good deal of its cushion is gone. But the rest of the NBC evening was more reasonable as Community ticked up again and Parks and Recreation (1.7 at 9:00 and 9:30) was above average in a special one-hour airing.
  • CBS' week of repeat experimentation continued with a two-hour comedy tryout, and The Big Bang Theory and 2 Broke Girls combined to equal the last original Person of Interest rating in this hour two weeks ago. It's not so much a win for "scheduling comedy here" as it is for "scheduling The Big Bang Theory in every timeslot, TBS style." Since they can't do that, ultimately the comedy scheduling is probably going to be much more about the new comedies than about these results.
  • Fox and the CDub were all original and fairly soft, especially CW anchor The Vampire Diaries, which returned from a couple weeks off at very low levels. (Though it did adjust up in finals to merely tie a low.)
