Spotted Ratings, Friday 2/27/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: Hawaii Five-0 (1.2) adjusted up.
  • The Amazing Race (1.1) made its Friday return with the same number at which it began its Friday run in the fall (and, of note, below the Undercover Boss Friday season low). With it came the unfortunate return to mediocrity for CBS later in the night, as Hawaii Five-0 (1.1) sunk to its low point from the fall when it was airing after Race. Blue Bloods (0.7) was in repeat mode.
  • Shark Tank (1.2) also snuck in a post-sweeps repeat, but it didn't stop the surrounding ABC hours from having pretty good nights; Last Man Standing (1.4) inched up to snap its long 1.3 streak, while Cristela (1.0) was back to normal. At 10/9c, 20/20's 1.3 was one of its better ratings without an original lead-in.
  • NBC installed a little-watched The Night Shift (0.5) repeat at 8/7c to fill the Grimm hiatus, while Fox had a third straight 0.8/0.6 combo with World's Funniest Fails and Glee. CW's Hart of Dixie was even at 0.4.

LMS deserves a renewal, very steady for Friday

Spot said...

TAR has got to go. It's hurting the rest of the night.

Syndication factory tri-drama lineup for CBS in future Fridays, maybe? Opens up a prime slot. UB can be first off the bench.

Spot said...

Tri-drama lineup on Friday would mean 14th drama hour of 19 primetime hours.
Bit next season they should do something

So, I am for it next only season, but not

Spot said...

I have been saying that for a while. Just put POI on the night and be done with it. Boss can cover the Survivor hiatus.

Spot said...

I watched Shark Tank and Blue Bloods last night, and didn't realize either was a repeat. I guess I just happen to miss both of those episodes

Spot said...

It isn't a horrible performer but its fate probably rests more with the studio, FOX and Last Man Standing's pricey star. While Cristella is a very marginal Friday performer, I wouldn't be surprised if FOX tries to make it a package deal with LMS since they share the same studio and probably much of the same production staff. Getting a Latino themed sitcom into syndication like Cristella would probably pay handsome dividends in the long run but it's the short run that remains the challenge for both the studio and ABC..

Spot said...

While the ratings are good for Friday, LMS doesn't that much leverage in licensing fees with ABC as ABC can say they could just plug Shark Tank rerun there and get almost the same ratings so If i were FOX and Tim Allen they should not play hardball with ABC come renewal time, LMS feels like it would have a good syndication run so they should think of longterm income they would get since they're so close to reaching 100 episode mark already

Spot said...

Give TGW a final season order, cancel as many of the other dramas in 2016 as there will be fall 2016 launches, and you're back at 13. :)

Spot said...

Yes.
It can also be 12 or 14, and it really depends on how rookie dramas will do next fall. If rookies do:
Very good (like this season with 3 rookies renewed) = likely 14.
Bad (like season ago when all were cancelled) = likely 12.
Normal (most cancelled, but not all) = likely 13 drama hours in 2106.

Spot said...

FOTB did a 1.84 according to SitcomsOnline. So it missed a 1.9 by a hair. Which is, honestly, amazing.

Spot said...

Other shows that didn't adjust up by a hair: TBBT, HTGAWM, Forever, The Simpsons (8).
