Spotted Ratings, Thursday 3/12/15


WHAT MATTERS: 
  • FINALS UPDATE: A few of the underachievers in prelims got a little help from finals as Scandal (2.7), American Idol (1.8) and Dateline (0.9) all adjusted up. But CBS had some downticks likely due to preemptions for The Odd Couple (2.5), Mom (2.2) and Elementary (1.4).
  • Score another one for DST, which had a big impact on ABC's drama lineup. Weirdly, it was probably Grey's Anatomy (2.1) in the most viewing-depressed hour that fared best; this was down three tenths week-to-week, but only a tenth from the season low two weeks. Scandal (2.6), meanwhile, went much more sharply below its previous season low, though the week-to-week drop was similar to that of Grey's. And American Crime (1.4) saw its incompatibility with TGIT on display again, as it took a massive 30% week two hit that certainly does not bode well.
  • On CBS, it was more of a mixed bag, as The Big Bang Theory (4.4) and The Odd Couple (2.6) each shed 0.4. But the second half of the evening fared a lot better, as Mom (2.3) impressively inched up again and Elementary (1.5) also recovered. We'll see if these numbers hold after accounting for basketball preemptions.
  • NBC's revamped Thursday didn't cause any excitement; if anything, it mucked things up even more. A new run of Dateline (0.8) could only tie last week's The Slap, while the move of The Slap (0.6) was a debacle that went below all previous Allegiance episodes (and all previous The Slap episodes, for that matter). The Blacklist was back at 1.7.
  • And perhaps the most harrowing news came on Fox, where a two-hour live American Idol (1.7) completely crashed to nearly a half point behind the show's previous season low. Fox certainly hopes this was a blip and not the new reality with no more Empire pairing.
  • The CW's The Vampire Diaries was back with a preliminary 0.6, which would be a new series low unless it adjusts up.
