Spotted Ratings, Monday 5/27/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The broadcast programs were pretty weak on Memorial Day, even though there was no discernible drop-off in overall viewing. This curious phenomenon also occurred last year, when The Bachelorette posted a number far weaker than any other that season and America's Got Talent was also several tenths below the surrounding episodes.
  • The return of The Bachelorette was down a surprising 27% from last year's post-Dancing with the Stars premiere (2.6), but it was even with the strangely low holiday airing a year ago (which was week three of that season). So I'm gonna wait till next week before passing judgment. The Voice also disappointed, continuing its late-season fade, but again... we'll see where it ends up next week.
  • Cable featured the rather mixed return of A&E's drama lineup. The Glades (0.7) was down a couple ticks year-to-year, but sophomore Longmire (0.9) tied its series high and was a tick above last year's series premiere.
