Spotted Ratings, Thursday 8/7/14


WHAT MATTERS:
  • There's much discussion about how screwed up the preliminary ratings are during the NFL preseason, but last night's results also prove the finals don't exactly sort things out. For example, it's not realistic that Elementary would suddenly hang a 1.2 after going no higher than 0.8 the whole summer. (CBS' 8:00 hour repeats are only slightly less ridiculous.) Clearly these numbers are heavily influenced by when the pre-empted stuff gets rescheduled, and often that means right after the high-rated game is over.
  • The other networks were not nearly as lucky as CBS on the pre-emption front; every original on ABC, NBC and Fox was down a tick or two from last week.

Elementary might fall below that mark in originals this season...

This is the terrible part of year where nothing is new and even the repeats are getting preempted!
.
Impressive for Mom tying its series low with a repeat. If it can retain anywhere close to that on Monday it will be a big win
