Spotted Ratings, Sunday 10/20/13

  • NBC had a much huger than usual game from Sunday Night Football, which featured Peyton Manning's return to former stomping grounds Indianapolis. It was about on par with the very early season numbers, something football rarely pulls off this far into the season.
  • ABC had another brutal Sunday as Once Upon a Time took a big dip following three relatively steady weeks. Revenge was also down another tenth.
  • Week two of The Walking Dead (7.1) came down by almost 15% from last week's eye-popping premiere, but it was still the series' second-biggest episode and still well bigger than any non-Dead entertainment episode this season.

This is just depressing...

Spot said...

I say a lot that people are overreacting at OUAT's ratings. NOW is the time to panic, people. A tied series low? Come on.

Spot said...

Walking Dead scored a 7.1

What a flop, AMC should have stayed with the 8-episode hit Flopping Bad.

Spot said...

In my opinion, ABC should give up on Sundays for the timebeing and try to save OUAT and Revenge while there is still time. They aren't developing new drama hits so they will need the shows in the future, especially because we all know it's a matter of time until all that DWTS real estate needs to be replaced. I would move OUAT to Tuesdays with Shield and launch Resurretion there. Revenge should go to thursdays after Scandal with Grey's taking the 8pm hour. Launch Mind Games after the ridiculously high Shark Tank lead-in on Fridays. Move 20/20 to Sundays and use the taste and the quest to the earlier hours there. It's over for dramas there, they need to acknowledge it and save what they can.

Spot said...

Way, way too many moves. How would they even advertise all that? In theory that sounds alright, but there's way too much risk there.

Spot said...

It's difficult to make big moves in mid-season on the fly. You can anger a ton of advertisers.

Spot said...

I realize it's unrealistic. You can ease them up simply by moving OUAT and Revenge away from Sundays though (as well as sliding the Shonda dramas back one hour). It's not that many moves in that case.

Spot said...

Even the modest and clever moves on CBS Monday were seen as substantial. That would be overkill. Then again, ABC are getting beaten by a two-show network (NBC with Voice/SNF) and their Super Tuesday has already collapsed. Hard not to want to roll the dice in that spot.

Spot said...

Finals on TVBTN suggested a 10.0 for SNF. That on its own might be enough to keep SNF ahead of TWD as the top show in television this season (now watch as TWD does a 10.0 season finale).
