Spotted Ratings, Monday 9/8/14


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Finales for two of the summer's notable unscripted successes, American Ninja Warrior (1.8) and Bachelor in Paradise (1.4), didn't really generate any week-to-week heat (though the latter may have been nicked by a significant pre-emption).
  • The only notable mover was Under the Dome (1.4), which merely bounced back from last week's really bad result. (Fortunately for Dome, the afternoon tennis match ended quickly and didn't cause a primetime overrun.)
  • ESPN's annual Week 1 Monday Night Football doubleheader was way down for the early game (5.2 vs. last year's 6.6), but the more competitive late game was slightly up (5.1 vs. last year's 5.0).

Well American Ninja Warrior still has the USA vs. The World next week. (They added Europe) so its not really that much of a finale

Spot said...

TRUE was not generous with shows at all last night, no bumps at all despite summer viewing levels!


I also thought that Mom fully retaining Big Bang was worth a mention!

NBC's mid-season comedies are:
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (13 episodes)
Parks and Recreation (13 episodes)
One Big Happy (6 episodes)
Mission Control (presumably 13 episodes)
Undateable (10 episodes)

I'd guess that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt gets a Super Bowl launch and Undateable runs into summer again. Everything else depends on what fails. I don't think it's that excessive.

Monday Night Football tends to inflate overall viewing

Spot said...

You have a point about The Voice and I did note that but my problem with that argument is that NCIS had faced the voice the year before and handled it just fine, so I am not sure how much we can really attribute to it.

Spot said...

There is also Mr. Robinson. Also, The Blacklist is getting a post Super Bow episode, so no comedy is going there.

How do you know all the episode orders? I've missed it.

I just say it is a bit excessive because I have no idea where they want to place all of that, especially seeing how they also have quite a few dramas (not to mention reality, The Apprentice) in reserve. Maybe it's because they are dead serious about making an effort with the voice hiatus this year but I am still not sure how that would work.

But it really perked up once the Voice shifted to 9 and LA got plowed down instead.

Spot said...

That's true, you have somehow convinced me a bit.

Spot said...

Mission Control is 6 eps, Mr Robinson also 6 eps. I would think a high profile spring tryout like Mission Control will get post-Voice slot Tues in April-May, but that is just a guess.

Spot said...

I agree Marry Me and About A Boy looks like a doomed combo. One Big Happy/Undateable looks like more of a crowdpleaser, though my taste would be more Unbreakable Kimmy/Parks and Rec so I hope those will get some good promo!

Spot said...

I completely forgot about Mr. Robinson (I lost interest when they removed Greg Daniels from it), but that's also 6 episodes. Order size is usually reported when mid-season shows are greenlit.

And there's the second season of Welcome to Sweden. Yeah, you're right, these comedies are really piling up.

And it's a little odd because networks don't usually fire their head of comedy then order a million of those comedies.

By "Super Bowl launch", I didn't literally mean after the Super Bowl, just using the high-profile event to launch the new show and shuffle around their schedule.

Pushing Kimmy Schmidt to mid-season only makes sense if they plan to give it a higher-profile launch, simply because I can't believe a Fey/Carlock show starring Ellie Kemper being any worse than Bad Judge or A to Z. Then again, that's relying on NBC making sensible comedy decisions and that's simply not a good assumption in 2014.

Spot said...

Yes I am really interested to see on which side of 2.0 Shield will land.
