Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/23/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Blacklist (1.5) got back a tenth, as did The Big Bang Theory (3.6).
  • A particularly momentous episode of Grey's Anatomy (2.8) spiked by a massive 33% week-to-week. This was the show's biggest rating since the 2.8 spring premiere in January and may adjust up to the biggest rating since the season premiere's 3.1. While last night's development seems like a surprisingly big risk for a show that didn't need the ratings help, the short-term rewards are certainly being reaped.
  • But the Grey's heat no real impact on lead-outs Scandal (2.3) and American Crime (0.9), both of which were actually down from last week.
  • CBS' comedy night gave back some of its recent heat with The Big Bang Theory (3.5), The Odd Couple (2.0) and Mom (1.9) all down. It was an unwelcome development especially considering the always weirdly impactful NFL Draft will be in the mix next week.
  • On NBC, The Blacklist (1.4) had a brutal return from a couple weeks off, dropping two tenths. It may adjust up with a 1.4 -> 1.5 breakdown, but that would still be a new low.
  • Fox and the CDub were steady but low with Bones (1.0), Backstrom (0.8), The Vampire Diaries (0.6) and Reign (0.3).
