Spotted Ratings, Sunday 4/19/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The ACM Awards adjusted down to 3.6, still up 9% year-to-year. Once Upon a Time (1.7), Secrets and Lies (1.5) and A.D. The Bible Continues (1.2) got welcome upticks, while American Odyssey (0.5) dropped to what seems like a very clear pull-me-now level. On cable, Game of Thrones (3.6) took a larger than usual post-premiere drop, but it remained on the narrow year-to-year upside and tied the ACM Awards.
  • After two weeks very much on the map, it only took three for A.D. The Bible Continues (1.1) to become yet another facepalm situation for NBC. It dropped a whooping six more tenths following the six-tenth week two drop, putting it already at less than half of the premiere rating. Last week, it was still Sunday's #1 broadcast series in 18-49. This week, it was a pretty distant fourth place just in its timeslot. The show's best hope now is that the similarly middle America-skewing Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS were very unfavorable competition for this show, but it would take a huge rebound to change the narrative here. And the surrounding 8/7c A.D. repeat (0.6) and American Odyssey (0.6) also took sizable week-to-week hits.
  • ABC fared much better against the added CBS competition. Though Once Upon a Time (1.6) failed to rebound from last week's low, Secrets and Lies (1.4) and Revenge (1.0) both inched up, and America's Funniest Home Videos (1.4) may have benefited from the NBA playoffs airing late in the afternoon on ABC.
  • Fox had animated anchors The Simpsons (1.4) and Family Guy (1.7) both in originals for once, with the former ticking down and the latter benefiting from a return to its usual 9/8c slot. The Last Man on Earth (1.4) was also up a bit.
  • And CBS more than tripled its usual Sunday 8-11 delivery with an above-average The Academy of Country Music Awards (3.7), whose three-hour prelim was up from last year's 3.3.
