Spotted Ratings, Monday 10/7/13

  • Almost everything came down a little more on the third Monday of the broadcast season. It got particularly ugly for CBS' 10/9c occupant Hostages, down three more tenths, and it's now very tough to see the entire 15-episode string getting played out in this timeslot. While week two of We Are Men remained a clear CBS comedy weak link, it was only down 10% from the premiere. We'll see if CBS allows it to drag things down for a bit longer.
  • Promising newbies Sleepy Hollow and The Blacklist each ended up shedding two more tenths week-to-week in finals.
  • The CW's latest Surrender Monday lived up to the billing with Hart of Dixie a tick below its late-season level and Beauty and the Beast shedding two tenths in its first ep without a Vampire Diaries lead-in. They went 22% behind the already pathetic 90210/Gossip Girl lineup of a year ago (each show averaged a 0.45 using the half-hour breakdowns consulted in the Ty2y stat). Might some unlucky newbie end up inheriting the BatB slot at midseason?

0.4s *with* a football pre-emption in the #1 TV market? I knew it would be an easy Under call, but I didn't expect Surrender Monday to fall short of the line in inflated prelims!

Apparently not. I expected CBS to at least give it a couple more weeks, but this show was never going to make it. I hope that the remaining episodes are burned-off or at least put online.

I think it's more shocking that 2 Broke Girls got demoted to 8:30.
