Spotted Ratings, Sunday 5/11/14


WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was never gonna be The Sound of Music Live!, but NBC's latest "event" was not even remotely eventful. The remake of Rosemary's Baby (1.1) didn't even noticeably outrate the usual combo of cancelled Believe and Crisis, which has gotta be a big disappointment for NBC. That means its conclusion on Thursday probably won't improve on the network's anemic Thursday levels, either.
  • ABC's split-season treatment for the Sunday dramas has quietly been a significant success this spring, and it ended with Once Upon a Time (two hours at 2.3) actually matching last year's finale, while Revenge (1.4) adjusted down to finish 18% behind. For Once, that means it will cut a 30%+ year-to-year deficit from the fall all the way to about 20% by season's end.
  • After a strong Sunday a week ago, Fox saw The Simpsons (1.6) give back its LEGO spike from last week and Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (1.1) fall off a cliff.

Cue the crickets. Awfully, quiet, Spot. I think all the news of cancellations, renewals and new series pickups over the last few days has sucked the oxygen out of interest in current ratings as the television season nears its end for another season.

It would be amazing if they did this same split season next year and Once could end up even or even up a tick if it has a great season creatively, but that 1.7 on Easter and those 2 or 3 1.9's on regular Sundays concern me

Personally, I'm not surprised in re: Rosemary's Baby. The degree of cynicism involved in airing a TV remake of a film adaptation of a book about the mother of the devil is so high that no casual audience would come w/in a mile of that thing, and fans of the property probably have the aforementioned film in their movie collection and therefore wouldn't bother w/ what was generally described as a leaden, unnecessary retread.
