|The Big Bang Theory Last Season||Parks and Recreation Last Season |
|5.0 (premiere, 9/27/12) |
4.8 (finale, 5/16/13)
|1.7 (premiere, 9/20/12, 2.2 The Office) |
1.6 (finale, 5/2/13, 1.9 The Office)
If both these shows had the same situation, I would favor Michael J. Fox, whose health struggles add an additional layer of interest in his corner. But the massive lead-in discrepancy between The Big Bang Theory and MJF's Parks and Recreation lead-in (could be up to four points!) ultimately has to count for something.
Spread: The Crazy Ones beats The Michael J. Fox Show by 0.55 points.
(Reply with "The Crazy Ones" if you think The Crazy Ones BEATS The Michael J. Fox Show by 0.6 points or more, or with "The Michael J. Fox Show" if you think The Crazy Ones BEATS The Michael J. Fox Show by 0.5 points or less OR The Michael J. Fox Show TIES/BEATS The Crazy Ones. Results based on finals to one decimal point.)
(Additional note: If MJF is counted as two separate episodes, I'll just use the 9:00 episode for this comparison. If the whole hour is counted once, I'll consult the half-hour breakdowns to just get the 9:00 portion. Either way, we're just talking about the half-hour where they're head-to-head here.)
