Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 1/29/14

  • With the strongest shows on ABC and CBS going into repeats, NBC had another strong crime drama night with Law and Order: SVU (2.0) and week four of Chicago PD (1.7), each up again. But Revolution (1.3) gave back last week's increase in the 8/7c hour.
  • Miscellaneous notes: 
    • ABC's Suburgatory (1.5) was down three tenths with The Middle (1.5) going into repeats, and Nashville (1.5) ticked up for a second straight week despite a series low lead-in from Super Fun Night (1.3);
    • Fox's American Idol (3.8) inched down again despite easier competition;
    • The finals were kind to the CW. Both shows adjusted up, giving The Tomorrow People its first 0.7 since week three and Arrow (1.1) its first 1.0+ in the new year.
    • And CBS' annual Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials special (1.9) went a tenth behind last year's rating.

Chicago PD is looking increasingly legit. I think next year if they renew it a Voice, PD, Fire lineup would work really well. I'd then move SVU for an announced final season to 10 where it could probably beat out an old and tired CSI.

Not sure I like that PD matchup with an NCIS spinoff (the only thing I see replacing NCIS LA there is NCIS NO), though it's a coherent night at least. I might be tempted by comedies/Voice/Fire on Tuesdays, or Voice/new serial/Fire if they want to keep Blacklist doing the business on Mondays but still want to launch something else out of The Voice. (It's this way round so that, again, NBC don't throw a procedural at an NCIS.)

I was certain before finals that the CW numbers would be revised. I wasn't thinking *that* direction. TTP right back in the renewal race with that.

I hate it when ABC leaves their bottom-of-hour comedies out to dry during this time of year. Then come May they wonder why they're taking an axe to all of them.
