Spotted Ratings, Weekend Roundup 8/23-8/25/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Preseason NFL dominated broadcast TV on Friday and Sunday, with the 2.3 average on Friday for Seahawks/Packers on CBS particularly impressive, but it lost out to a nice showing from ABC's NASCAR on Saturday (it was up a tick from last year's late-August race).
  • On Friday, America's Next Top Model decided to go from 0.5 to 0.2 in one week. Probably just one of those weird blips, but we'll see...
  • AMC saw Saturday's Hell on Wheels (0.33) finally take the 18-49 dip that it seemed like it should've taken last week when it dropped a ton of viewers. But HoW is far from the network's biggest concern; week three of Low Winter Sun (0.42) dropped again and is now retaining 17% of its Breaking Bad (2.53) lead-in. It's pretty clear now that this show is a disaster, and I think AMC ought to strongly consider moving BB aftershow Talking Bad (which actually very narrowly built from LWS at a 0.43) to the immediate post-BB slot.
  • The week's top program was Sunday's Video Music Awards (5.2) on MTV, which nearly doubled last year's ill-scheduled 2.8 rating on a Thursday. The 2.8 in 2012, not this rating, was the real outlier here; the show actually got a 6.2 two years ago.

Interesting that you have TN and LMS equal in TRUE terms.


On another note, I never wish for any show to do poorly but I badly want the killing to come back so I am sort of happy that AMC is having troubles elsewhere.

You just can't beat the Night Race(TM 2009)(no really, Bristol trademarked it).
