Spotted Ratings, Monday 6/24/13 & 7/1/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • For all the networks' talk around upfront time about pushing into year-round programming, there hasn't been a lot of proof that the nets can actually make it happen on a decent scale. Two weeks in, it looks like Under the Dome may be that proof. It began with a 3.3, actually outrating all of CBS' in-season drama premieres over the last two years, including Person of Interest (3.1) and Elementary (3.1). And it trailed only Revolution (4.1) among all drama premieres this season. Given the time of year and the lower viewing levels, it was one of the most impressive series premieres in recent years. And the show held up reasonably in week two, dropping just 12% to a still fantastic 2.9. (Though the critics almost unanimously hated episode two, so let's see what happens next week.)
  • I didn't even mention that Under the Dome actually had some tough premiere night competition from the sixth and decisive game of the Stanley Cup Finals, which went 65% ahead of the sixth and decisive game from a year ago and capped off a big postseason for the NHL.
  • NBC came back to earth the next week with American Ninja Warrior, down big from its Got Talent-fueled premiere last year but close to what it was getting after it lost that lead-in late last season. And scripted newbie Siberia was... well, low, but at least a step in the right direction from NBC's other summer scripted efforts Save Me and Crossing Lines. ABC saw The Bachelorette pick up a bit with The Voice out of the way, but Mistresses has moved slightly in the other direction as more scripted shows have populated its slot.
  • The only thing I really noticed from two weeks of Monday cable was some momentum for The Fosters (0.6 on 6/24/13, then a new high 0.7 on 7/1/13), which increasingly looks like a keeper for ABC Family.
