Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 10/23/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Fox took over Wednesday with Game 1 of the World Series. With the return of the Boston Red Sox to the Series, it went 17% above last year's number, but it only managed to tie the 4.2 from the Cardinals/Rangers opener two years ago.
  • The CW continued to come back to earth after its dreamy performance last week, with Arrow returning to premiere numbers and The Tomorrow People dropping again in week three (though it was mercifully adjusted up in finals to 0.7). Maybe baseball has something to do with it, but there's a decent chance Fox could have an even bigger game on the night next Wednesday.
  • After a decent uptick last week in John Munch's final episode, Law and Order: SVU headed back onto its sharp post-premiere decline trajectory, now down by nearly half from that massive premiere a month ago. This episode was down over 20% year-to-year.

so basically, everyone went down except sport.

It will be HILARIOUS if one day this spring Survivor manages to beat Idol. Idol dipped below a 3 sometimes and is falling at a way faster rate than Survivor, which got a 2.9 once last spring...

Spot said...

Even CBS Wednesdays, which are now arguably one of their best days and certainly one of the most stable ones, went down 13%. I don't think my -11% predicted decline will be that off as it looked in the opening weeks.

I'd lol, but it seems unlikely. Survivor is already down near its all-time low, and generally down half a point from last Fall.

NBC = FLOP
