Spotted Ratings, Memorial Weekend Roundup (5/24-5/26/13)


WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC won Friday on the strength of Shark Tank repeats, but Fox got some surprisingly OK mileage out of a special airing of the Nat Geo series Brain Games. Sports dominated the next two nights, with the NHL on NBC and then Sunday's NASCAR beating the combined competition (including the finale of Smash). Memorial Sunday saw the largest viewing depression relative to the norm for that day of the week.
  • NBA conference final games on cable beat all the broadcasters on each of these three nights: Eastern Conference on Friday (3.0) and Sunday (3.1) and Western Conference on Saturday (1.9).

What an embarrassing end to Smash. From a 3.8 debut to a tie with Canadian import reruns.
