Spotted Ratings, Sunday 11/10/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Any minor momentum that appeared to be developing on ABC Sundays promptly vanished, as Once Upon a Time, and Betrayal all reverted to tie season low points, while a finals downtick by Revenge left it at an outright low. It was even worse on Fox, where the cartoon lineup was down double digits across the board in its second straight week without an NFL assist (and anchors The Simpsons and Family Guy were down about 20%). Immediate help is not on the way for these shows, as they'll cede the direct NFL lead-in to the Almost Human premiere next week.
  • The declines were not exclusive to broadcast this week, as The Walking Dead (6.2) also took a roughly 10% hit and dropped back behind a Cowboys-fueled Sunday Night Football.
  • Just want to throw out there that on a generally down night, The Good Wife ended up with an outright season high, and the show seems to have grown more in the last couple weeks than the 9:00 show typically does after NFL overruns. The acclaim this season has been even more considerable than usual; is some ratings momentum finally beginning to develop for this show? Next week without an overrun should tell us more.

Do we actually have some hope that ABC wises up and send Revenge to Thursdays come midseason? These ratings are so depressing...

Spot said...

They just need to get any show that they think has a future off of Sunday nights. Looking back, CBS gave up a couple of years ago. The CW for sure gave up much further back. With Animation Domination tailing off and ABC's soapy sundays losing all traction, it's only a matter of time before it becomes a haven for reality shows, burnoffs and filler.

Spot said...

I don't expect Scandal to move until Grey's ends its run. And certainly not for Revenge's sake.

Spot said...

I think that is a big mistake. What's the upside? When Grey's ends, it will probably be too late to move Scandal anyway as it is unlikely to remain hot for that long. I don't think Grey's will end next season, maybe not even in two seasons, so I doubt Scandal can remain hot for that long.

Spot said...

I agree. Why ABC doesn't try to salvage their shows and do this is beyond me... It's like they are just being stubborn.

Spot said...

You have to wonder why ABC has not moved a hit show to Thursday at 8pm in the last, say, 20 years. There must be a reason.

Spot said...

CBS treating Sundays like Fridays (as a syndication quarantine) is looking real smart right now. (Granted, doing it with TGW isn't, but it does at least have the multiplatform syndication deal with Amazon. I'd be declaring this as the final season so it has the "closure" that helps serials in streaming. To be honest, I'd do the same for Revenge, why would anyone pay for it in stripped syndication? The CW led the way by giving Nikita a short story-finishing final season, and I think we'll see that replace the 88-and-out model for non-procedural dramas as streaming becomes established as the way to syndicate many dramas. Sitcoms will continue to work on 88-and-out.)

Spot said...

Could it be the case The Good Wife upticking when going against Betrayal and not against (weak but not Betrayal-like-awfully weak) Revenge?
I mean, this season TGW scored 3 best ratings when airing started at : 9:44 PM, 10:00 and now 9:47. Those late starts also avoid most or all of overlapping with The Walking Dead.

Spot said...

Next stop for Shield: OUAT/Castle territory. Then...1s? Maaaybe the Thor crossover can have a slight uptick for one ep, which is better than bleeding 8 or 9 weeks in a row.

Spot said...

I think it was the same last season, no? I think the good wife always does better when facing the weaker 10pm shows than when facing Revenge (or DH in season 3)

Spot said...

Well, in the 90s that reason was NBC Must See TV Thursday. Like the days when Idol reigned supreme, the other networks just gave up. For example, in the 98-99 season, NBC had the #1 (ER), #2 (Friends), #3 (Frasier), #4 (Jesse) and #7 (Veronica's Closet) shows airing on one night. ABC responded with something called Vengeance Unlimited and a movie. In the early 2000s, Friends was joined by Survivor which averaged in the 7s and 8s back then (low 4s NOW). It wasn't until Friends and Frasier left and Survivor cooled off a bit that they really started trying. First with Dancing with the Stars on a Th/F schedule, then the Ugly Betty/Grey's combo for a few years. Post-UB, as we all know, it's been one horror story after another, with Wipeout mixed in.

Spot said...

There are dead spots in the schedule and the networks are okay with it.
