Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 3/25/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: Survivor (2.3) and Criminal Minds (2.1) added a tenth, putting the whole CBS lineup even week-to-week. The Middle (1.9), The Goldbergs (2.1) and Modern Family (2.9) also got a tenth of relief apiece.
  • The first "post-imperial" Wednesday of 2015 saw nobody step up to the plate in the absence of Empire. CBS had the highest three-hour average, but Survivor (2.2) and Criminal Minds (2.0) were each down a tenth from their last airing against Empire. And hope seems to be dwindling for CSI: Cyber (1.4), which was even with the return of Minds as a lead-in and its first taste of Chicago PD (1.5) as competition.
  • ABC also underwhelmed, with The Middle (1.8), The Goldbergs (2.0) and Modern Family (2.8) all taking major stumbles despite the lessened competition. This lineup had seemingly been overachieving against the later Empire weeks, but it's still disappointing to take this big of a hit on the first night with lessened competition. Black-ish (2.1) held the closest to its recent results. ABC rounded out the night with a Nashville "On the Record" special (0.8).
  • NBC was coming back from the longest hiatus of all, and The Mysteries of Laura (1.0) quickly reverted to its season low after experiencing a spike in the Eric McCormack episode a month ago. Law and Order: SVU (1.3) was yet another 9/8c show that actually dropped noticeably in the first post-Empire week, while Chicago PD (1.5) had by far the best night in holding steady and topping Cyber at 10/9c.
  • And the Empire network also laid an egg, with two hours of American Idol (1.7) going a tenth behind last week's Thursday episode. This trailed the last Wednesday episode paired with Empire by nearly thirty percent!
  • Only the CW really had anything to crow about as Arrow (1.0) and Supernatural (0.7) both inched up.
