Spotted Ratings, Friday 2/20/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • There was many a post-Valentine's rebound on the last Friday of February sweeps, but the biggest was for usual Friday champ Shark Tank (2.2), which tied its season high and could tie its series high if it adjusts up in finals. Its lead-out 20/20 (1.6) also had a very good night, perhaps benefiting from no Dateline competition. At 8/7c, Last Man Standing posted its fourth consecutive 1.3, but Cristela (0.9) had a discouraging result in Roseanne's return stint.
  • CBS also fared well, with the Undercover Boss finale (1.3) inching up and procedurals Hawaii Five-0 (1.4) and Blue Bloods (1.5) each up two tenths. That marked a new season high for Blue Bloods.
  • NBC continued to get outstanding mileage out of Sunday's Saturday Night Live 40th special, as a three-hour repeat (1.5) was much stronger than the network's usual lineup and made the network a very close second place overall.
  • Fox was even with World's Funniest Fails (0.8) and Glee (0.6), and Hart of Dixie (0.4) ticked down from its last ep two weeks ago.

Poor Cristela. LMS is so steady! WOW at Shark Tank!

SNL repeat did better than a lot of shows on NBC this week~

Spot said...

Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods work really well together. CBS has too many other problem timeslots to worry about Friday nights.


Very nice repeat number from SNL.

Spot said...

An amazing 2+ on a Friday no less.

Spot said...

Not surprised about SNL repeats after its' monstrous ratings.

Spot said...

No, Undecover Boss works very well with this night, overall.

Spot said...

Good night for everyone except FOX, Cristela and CW, SNL did well for a repeat.


I wonder how much TAR is going to negatively impact CBS lineup next week.

Spot said...

This race aired on Fox Sports 1 last year. TV By The Numbers had it at an 0.9.

Spot said...

I thought Cristela would rise, but oh well... SNL did really good for a repeat, above a lot of NBC's other programming. Amazing for Shark Tank! Maybe it rose because of the #SharkFight. CBS should definitely put Undercover Boss there.

Spot said...

Blue Bloods ties Elementary on Friday when Elementary had a 129% larger lead in. That's insane!

Spot said...

Do you know when we get a Best Case/Worst Case for Battle Creek; CSI: Cyber, Secrets & Lies, and American Crime?

Spot said...

Probably closer to the premiere dates of those shows.

Spot said...

That's in 8 days.

Spot said...

Your new name makes me sad.

Spot said...

Yeah, probably some time then.

Spot said...

That's really sad for CBS.

Spot said...

I think that 0.9 for Cristela is the nail in the coffin. Heck of a result for Shark Tank with that lead-in, could end up with a really big number in True.

Anyone else think that NBC might turn to more SNL specials to plug its schedule gaps next season?

Spot said...

Definitely, the repeat alone is doing better than about half the shows on the network.

Spot said...

Most of NBC's schedule is a gap, so where would you deploy SNL specials? Tuesday as a betwixt-Voice hammock? Sunday during the Event season period? Or just bring it to the line-up full-time on Thursday as an "alternative" comedy block paired with NPH?

Spot said...

This week was indeed the first time that The Goldbergs failed to build on The Middle:


The Middle: 2.24
The Goldbergs: 2.20

Spot said...

And The Blacklist is still NBC's top-rated program, scripted-wise:


The Blacklist: 1.72
Chicago PD: 1.67

Spot said...

I have no idea. As you say, there are far too many places you could put it...

Spot said...

Just curious, what was Blackish's unrounded number

Spot said...

For anyone who's curious: ABC Oscars Promotion

Red Carpet:
Secrets & Lies 2
Agents of SHIELD 1
Modern Family 1
Once Upon A Time 1
American Crime 1

Black-ish 1
How To Get Away With Murder 1


Oscars:
American Crime 3
Secrets & Lies 2
The Goldbergs 1
Once Upon A Time 1
Black-ish 1
How To Get Away With Murder 1


Notable Absents: Scandal, GA, Middle, Shark Tank, DWTS, FOTB

Spot said...

2.16

Spot said...

Hardly surprising.

Spot said...

Thanks

Spot said...

No Scandal is interesting, guess they don't think it needs the assist. Once clearly does.

Spot said...

I find the lack of scandal mildly surprising, although it makes some sense considering it is not even airing this week.

Spot said...

I mean, I expected some form of promotion, since Scandal will take a week off and they want it to be as strong as possible for American Crime's premiere but it isn't all that surprising.

Spot said...

Also, you have you email.

Spot said...

Well they did have Kerry Washington as a presenter and she was on the red carpet. Not an ad per se, but there was a Scandal presence.


It may also have something to do with the fact that Scandal's preempted on Thursday for How to Get Away with Murder's season finale.

Spot said...

I would guess at some point this week it'll happen, or it'll be published Monday morning before the prelims for Secrets & Lies and Battle Creeks (among the other shows) come out.

Spot said...

I forgot about Last Man on Earth! Because I've never seen a promo for it. I'm guessing we'll get a mini batch in late March for Weird Loners, A.D.: The Bible Continues, and Odyssey.
Edit: I forgot the NBC comedies

Spot said...

Scandal is on break because of HTGAWM's 2 hour finale.

The promos are for the new shows and shows like OuaT that's been on a long break and are coming back next week.

Spot said...

Well they had to make room for the new shows, I know it's been heavily promoted.

Spot said...

Exactly, I'm sure new promos would probably come in during that time.
