Spotted Ratings, Sunday 3/29/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • AMC had one last thorough domination of primetime with the 90-minute season finale of The Walking Dead (8.16), which was 2% above the 8.00 that ended last season and wrapped up a +5% spring season overall.
  • CBS had NCAA basketball coverage (4.3) running 17 minutes into primetime, which significantly boosted 60 Minutes (2.3) and provided another small boost to Madam Secretary (1.4), which finally got back to the low end of its fall ratings. 
  • Other than CBS, it was pretty rough sledding against the Dead finale. ABC saw Once Upon a Time (1.7) and Secrets and Lies (1.3) each shed a couple tenths, while Fox was even more alarming with another hour of The Last Man on Earth (1.4/1.2) down over 25% week-to-week in each hour. Last Man had a somewhat surprising uptick last week, so maybe the airings on the 22nd were flukes in the positive direction and this one was a fluke in the negative direction. We'll see what's left in two weeks when original Family Guy is back and The Walking Dead is traded out for Game of Thrones.
  • On the last Sunday before it finally starts airing a real lineup, NBC had a productive showing from the iHeartRadio Music Awards (1.7), even with last season when it aired on Thursday and famously beat American Idol head-to-head.
