Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 4/17/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  •  With CBS, NBC and the CW mostly in repeats, most of the excitement was in ABC second-tier sitcom land. It started with the one-hour season finale of Suburgatory which was weaker in the lead-off role and without The Middle around, but not to a particularly surprising degree.
  • And week three of newbie How to Live took a 20% dip in its first airing without an original Modern Family lead-in, but it tied the Modern repeat and got about the same numbers as late-season Suburgs was posting after originals. (It also tied the year-ago week three of Apartment 23, which led out of a 2.2 Modern repeat.) So this still looks pretty solid for now.

Assuming that neither show changes timeslots, what do you think the chance is that Survivor beats American Idol in just the head to head hour in Spring 2014?


I say 75%
