Spotted Ratings, Sunday 8/4/13 & 8/11/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The latest big-time story in Sunday cable was the return of Breaking Bad (2.9), which not only keeps growing but keeps growing faster. This number was nearly double any previous episode of the show. What really makes this story unique is not necessarily the size of the growth; believe it or not, these kinds of 100%ish growth spurts are not terribly uncommon, as Game of Thrones, True Blood and Homeland can attest. The real story is that Breaking Bad is pulling it off this late into its run. Those enormous bounces generally happen with second-season shows.
  • The NFL came back on August 4 with the Hall of Fame game, which featured football's biggest ratings draw (the Dallas Cowboys) and handily outrated any preseason game from last season.
  • In the broadcast entertainment world, ABC brought back Secret Millionaire, which joined the very crowded club of low-1's performers on ABC this summer. It was 20% behind last year's premiere and downticked in week two. And CBS' drama Unforgettable deteriorated a bit in weeks two and three after an already soft start.
