Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 4/16/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC's Ready for Love was down three ticks from its already disastrous premiere last week, and its preliminary half hours were 1.8 -> 1.2 -> 1.2 -> 1.0. That means its ratings now pretty much mirror those of duds Go On, The New Normal and Smash in their spring post-Voice berths. NBC should not waste the nearly two remaining months of The Voice on this show any longer. But there aren't any abundantly obvious alternatives, so this will be interesting to watch.
  • It was a slow day elsewhere, though of note on CBS was the network flipping the repeats of NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS. These numbers should help to illustrate that the disparity in these shows' actual strengths is larger than it might normally appear when NCIS is in the tougher slot. And the mothership at 9/8c meant a lead-in not that much worse than usual for Golden Boy.

I'd swap Ready for Love with Hannibal, and then plug in Chicago Fire, SVU, or Grimm reruns at 10 for the rest of the season.

Hell's Kitchen did quite well without NCIS.
Wonder why Hart of Dixie is down.
NCIS – Top scripted show even in repeats!!
