Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/8/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • With The Walking Dead on hiatus and NBC providing a mediocre Sunday Night Football matchup between Carolina and New Orleans, the broadcasters got a rare bit of Sunday relief. This was most evident on male-skewing Fox, where (with an assist from an NFL lead-in) all four cartoons were at or very near season high levels.
  • On CBS, The Amazing Race wrapped up its season at 19% behind last season's finale, about the same year-to-year trend it's experienced all season. And the returns from revamped The Mentalist remain surprisingly promising, as it adjusted up to another new season high (albeit with its largest lead-in of the season from TAR).
  • After finals adjustments, ABC ended up with minor week-to-week growth out of both Once Upon a Time and Revenge.

Bones just picked up the tick to close the gap in the finals. I can't believe it's doing as well as AH on Fridays in its TWELFTH time slot.

Spot said...

Bones is doing amazing, it's spectacular.


In unrelated comments, I find it surprising that TRUE is helping the Friday shows so little. I would expect a 1.7 on a Friday to be worth more than a 1.8. Grimm and the CW shows don't even receive any TRUE love.

Spot said...

Usually they do, but the viewing estimates for this night said there were more people watching TV than a typical Friday (especially at 9:00). Often I chalk this up to rounding errors, but there may be a little something to it this time since almost everything was up.

Spot said...

Oh I see. Yeah, that makes sense and indeed the fact that so much stuff was up may show that it was an abnormally viewed day. Thanks for the clarification!
