The Question, Sunday 5/12/13: Can the Survivor Finale Claim the Sunday Throne?


As suspected several weeks ago, HBO's Game of Thrones has taken up the "beat every broadcast program" mantle for Sunday cable, pulling off the feat each of the last three weeks. But the bar figures to be at a higher level than usual tonight as the season finale of Survivor heads to the night. Can the Survivor finale claim the Sunday Throne? That's The Question for Sunday, May 12, 2013.

Game of Thrones This Season Survivor This Season
2.4 (3/31/13)
2.3 (4/7/13)
2.4 (4/14/13)
2.6 (4/21/13)
2.8 (4/28/13)
2.9 (5/5/13)
2.4 (premiere, 2/13/13, -23% year-to-year)
2.57 (average to date, -10% year-to-year)
2.7 -> 2.9 -> 2.4 -> 2.6 (last 4 weeks)
2.9 (spring 2012 finale)
3.2 (fall 2012 finale)

Thought about incorporating ABC's Once Upon a Time and Revenge finales too, but this race looked like more of a potential photo finish. I've got both GoT and Survivor right around a 2.9. I give Game of Thrones a tiny edge simply because it's been so hot lately, but it will be tough to continue to pick up steam this week against all the broadcast finale action.

Spread: Game of Thrones beats Survivor (8:00-10:00) by 0.05 points.

I hate to jump on a bandwagon, but Game of Thrones could easily break 3.0, and I don't see that happening for Survivor Spring. If it was the fall series, maybe.


Game of Thrones.

I'm going to go against the general consensus and say SURVIVOR.

Survivor, a good Survivor season plus higher competition will bring GoT down

Game of Thrones. I think it'l edge Survivor by just a smidge.

Survivor.

Survivor 3.1
GoT 2.9


SURVIVOR


I think that two blindsides in a row should bring back viewers.


Go Survivor!!

Would a 3.1 get Survivor: Caramoan to "HIT" in A18-49+?

Survivor

Game of Thrones. I think it'll hold steady against broadcast finale night, while Survivor's going to be down a bit year-to-year for the finale.

Spot said...

Good luck to you. By coincidence, I ordered bronze wall plates for my light switches this week.

Spot said...

I have no clue since I don't watch either show, and as of my entry the field is evenly split. So at least it's a good Line, Spot.

Game of Thrones.

Assuming the reunion gets like a 2.6, it would be VERY close, so it's dependent on how lots of other things do. It would get there based on the current league avg (as of Thursday), but if it goes up in the last two weeks it might drop below.

Spot said...

Thank you, Mr. Igwell. I hope the installation of said wall plates goes well for you.

Spot said...

It did!
