Spotted Ratings, Thursday 5/23/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The opening day of summer was pretty crowded with premieres, but few of them drew a lot of interest. Making the biggest splash was Fox's old faithful Hell's Kitchen, which began the summer portion of its season at its highest level since the mid-March premiere. It led into a relatively soft debut from widely derided reality series Does Someone Have to Go?.
  • ABC was also all original with Motive, which ended up holding its entire post-Dancing with the Stars demo from three days earlier, and the fourth season premiere of fellow co-production Rookie Blue, down a couple tenths from last year.
  • NBC began its burn-off of sitcom Save Me, which certainly affirmed the notion that it didn't fit at all with NBC's in-season comedies. Its skew was hugely different; it actually had more total viewers than most Community episodes but barely half of the demo rating. Hannibal at 10/9c was roughly even with recent in-season results, which can be spun two very different ways: 1) It held up even though its lead-in was over two points weaker than last week! or 2) It couldn't grow despite facing way less competition from ABC and CBS! Ultimately those two things probably roughly cancel out.
