The Question, Monday 4/1/13: Was NBC's Premiere Monday Fool's Gold?


NBC's "return to relevance" Monday went well enough, especially in the first two hours when The Voice hung a huge 4.8. But the lineup is not without its question marks coming into week two tonight. First, a finals downtick for Revolution left it right at its fall low point 2.6, a somewhat disappointing return especially considering how much The Voice overachieved. Then came Tuesday's ratings, when The Voice tumbled by 0.7 points from the Monday premiere. (In the fall, that drop was just 0.2 points, and then the show rose in week two.)

Both shows figure to drop tonight, but the degree of those drops will tell us whether there's anything to worry about. Was NBC's premiere Monday fool's gold? That's The Question for Monday, April 1, 2013.

The Voice PLUS Revolution Over/Under: 6.85.

Assume the Voice gets last week's Tuesday number + a hold for Revolution
= 6.7, same as my spitball last week. Which would be an under, and a flawless demonstration of The Glee Rule (i.e. first week overachieves, second week disappoints to expectations)

Spot said...

...Under, with Revolution at 2.0 and The Voice at 4.2.

Spot said...

Under, I'm expecting about 2.3 or 2.4 for Revolution and 4.2 or 4.3 for The Voice which would put it below 6.85.

Spot said...

4.2 (Voice) + 2.5 (Revolution) = 6.7. Under.

Spot said...

Revolution (2.4) + The Voice (4.3) = Under

Spot said...

"The Glee Rule", love that one!

Spot said...

Under

Spot said...

I wanted to go over but no matter what potential numbers I spun in my head, it wouldn't add up to 6.9 so under.

I feel like The Voice is due to give back some of those numbers since it was a premiere night and therefore more inflated, evidenced by Tuesday's drop. But the night will get easier since CBS is in reruns tonight, and Monday was the stronger of The Voice's nights in the Fall. Ugh, I'd feel better if I knew the breakdowns for the half-hours of Voice.


Just to go against the grain: Over.

Spot said...

The half-hours for Monday 3/25 or for Tuesday 3/26?

Preliminary half-hours for Monday 3/25 - 4.0/4.5/4.9/5.2
Preliminary half-hours for Tuesday 3/26 - 3.5/4.3

Spot said...

I'm being way too optimistic, but whatever, over at 7.5!


The Voice - 5.0
Revolution - 2.5

Spot said...

Guess I may get burned by both ends of the Glee Rule then, because it seems I am higher on The Voice than most... I had it at 4.4/4.5 and Revolution at 2.4.

Spot said...

It looks like I am the one getting burned by the Glee Rule, cause The Voice overachieved again.
