Spotted Ratings, Thursday 3/26/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: American Crime (1.3) adjusted up. The CBS games (1.9/2.7) had virtually the same final ratings as the first Thursday last year (2.0/2.6).
  • It looks like Scandal (2.3) is officially in crisis, as it preliminarily lost yet another tenth from last week's already alarming number and is now down a full point in just a month. It's equally staggering that this has happened while its lead-in Grey's Anatomy (2.2) is still showing no signs of problems whatsoever. We'll see next week if Grey's has benefited from no The Big Bang Theory the last couple weeks, but this kind of dynamic between the two shows is quite surprising. American Crime remained mired at 1.2.
  • On Fox, Bones (1.3) was back from a 3.5-month hiatus at a tenth above the fall finale and about on par with what it did for most of the late fall run, while Backstrom (0.9) hit its usual low number with a weaker but probably more compatible lead-in.
  • And NBC preliminarily saw a new low for The Blacklist (1.6). More on the March Madness ratings after finals!
