Spotted Ratings, Sunday 5/18/14


WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC stomped everyone on the season's last Sunday with the Billboard Music Awards (3.5), which were even year-to-year in the demo and up over 10% in viewership (10.74 million vs. 9.5 million).
  • Finale night for the regular lineups on CBS and Fox produced no noticeable week-to-week changes except for a sizable increase from The Mentalist (1.5). That left it just 12% below last year's finale while most of the other CBS/Fox finales were down at least 20%. And NBC may have been better off just running out the Believe and Crisis string, as they got nothing out of a 7/6c Coldplay special (0.4) and an encore Saturday Night Live special (0.8).

That Coldplay special seems like the type of thing that could have done well airing right after the Voice finale. I have no idea why they aired it at 7 instead of Dream Builders

Spot said...

Oops, I thought it was at 8. Fixed!

No one wants to admit their fandom of Coldplay, not now that they're known as plagiarists.

Whoa, TGW skewing very old (It reminds me Harry's Law)
