Spotted Ratings, Sunday 5/19/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Awards shows remain one of the best (only?) ways the broadcast networks can draw viewers to Sunday. ABC's Billboard Music Awards were up a whooping 30% from last year's 2.7 and the show's biggest rating since December 2003 (when it aired on Fox). They nearly doubled last week's ABC drama finales. CBS curiously aired an ACM Tim McGraw special against it and didn't do much.
  • The other two networks wrapped up their seasons of Sunday entertainment programs with Celebrity Apprentice only barely growing week-to-week and Fox hosting one-hour finales for The Cleveland Show, The Simpsons and Family Guy. The last two were close to even year-to-year, but Celebrity Apprentice was down huge from last year's 2.2.

Spot, what's the climate like on a day-by-day basis? Are Tuesday and Sunday still near 100?

Sunday will end up right at 100. Tuesday is right on the borderline between 99 and 100, and the DWTS finale could make or break it.
