Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 12/17/13

  • NBC got its usual bounce for the two-hour season finale of The Voice, but (like most of the back half of the season) it was down nearly 20% year-to-year. The trend in the back half of the season might seem somewhat worrisome, but the show should come back strong after all the Winter Olympics promotion.
  • CBS was the only other network in originals, and upward finals adjustments took NCIS and Person of Interest off of season lows and to slightly below average levels.

Does Survivor: Blood vs. Water wind up being labeled a hit after the spring?

Spot said...

Yes. Probably like a 128-129ish.

Spot said...

If PoI can hold up, it'll be the first time in the Plus era for a 10:00 CBS show to at least hit the league average.

It's surprising to me that even with a stronger 9:00 lead-in courtesy of NCIS: LA and the general weakness of the other broadcasters, CBS hasn't been able to capitalize on that. Maybe that's due to it being a tri-drama night; only ABC's 2006-2007 Fall schedule was able to have all three shows grade out as at least solid, even though Six Degrees clearly needed to be yanked.

Spot said...

I agree a lot with the notion that tri-dramas nights cannot work very well for some reason. I am not sure why it is but it appears that all nights need a little variety. Anyway, I think you meant "for a 10:00 Tuesday CBS show" as there have been plenty of other 10:00 pm shows on CBS to hit >100

Spot said...

The rise of NCIS is truly impressive. I am also very surprised at how well LA is holding up at 9pm against the voice, I thought it would give up a lot. Maybe the absence of a drama option helps it more I thought.

Spot said...

I always thought that CSI overachieved last year but I didn't expect it to see it giving in the gains so easily as it is apparently doing. Other than that, little to say about this night. I still think the 8pm slot is too open not to launch a drama there especially with Sundays screaming for a Survivor fix!

Spot said...

Yes, I meant Tuesday 10:00 PM show.

I think if the dramas were different in terms of tone, or if at least one show skewed closer to dramedy, then a tri-drama night could work. Going back to ABC's '06-'07 line-up, Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy, and Six Degrees were different kinds of dramas: Betty skewed comedic, Grey's balanced between comedy & drama, and Six was pure (bad) melodrama. But scheduling the three together made sense because they were cut from the same soap opera-esque cloth.

Spot said...

I agree more or less. You would find some other examples of stuff that was different in tone and still didn't work. OUAT/Revenge/666 for instance back when OUAT and Revenge were powerhouses for instance. Also, The Good Wife was pretty different from the NCIS twins. But then it gets into the question of whether it is the show or the scheduling and we can never properly answer that.
