Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 1/22/14


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The second American Idol Wednesday (4.0) was down 15% from last week, a steeper drop than last season. (The year-to-year slippage vs. last year's second Wednesday: -27%.)
  • Some rally on the other networks might have been predictable with Idol coming back a bit, but overall there were some big swings in both directions. ABC was up across the board, most notably with The Middle (2.3), the second week of Suburgatory (1.8), and Modern Family (3.4), as was NBC with Revolution (1.5), a spiking Law and Order: SVU (1.8) and a slightly up week three of Chicago PD (1.6).
  • CBS hit series lows with Criminal Minds (2.2) and CSI (1.6), and while the CW is still having a somewhat soft start to the new year with Arrow, it did adjust up to 0.9 in finals.

If Chicago PD had gotten a 1.8 and even better a 1.9, I would be screaming renew! But 1.6 is not a hit, just good retention. I think the real clear shot of renew or cancel will be the Olympic promoted SVU/Chicago PD crossover event.
What the hell happened to CSI? I get Criminal Minds having a weaker lead in, but it was only down .2! CSI just crumbled.

Chicago PD is not fighting against retention, nor to get hit label. It fights Revolution and Parenthood for being the 5th veteran drama on NBC's fall schedule (I seriously doubt they'll stop at only 4 obvious drama renewals).
So far so good, show's beating both "rivals". Not soundly, but beating, and as long as CPD doesn't fall bellow 1.4, it's safe bet for renewal.
