Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/30/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Big Bang Theory (3.4) was up two tenths, Bones (1.0) up one to avoid a new low, and American Crime (0.9) down one. That meant Blacklist's 1.2 and TVD's 0.5 stuck.
  • On Grey's Anatomy (2.5/2.6), the two-hour aftermath of last week's events went slightly lower than the 2.8 for the event itself. However, the two-hour period was virtually flat with last week since there was no Scandal to bring down the average (whoda thunk we'd be saying that?).
  • After a couple years of the whole CBS lineup seemingly getting steamrolled by the NFL Draft, this time it played out more like last year: a hit to The Big Bang Theory (3.2) at 8/7c but no real impact on fellow comedies The Odd Couple (2.0) and Mom (2.0). The lessened effect may be in part because the household overnight for ESPN's coverage was a 5.1, down 25% year-to-year. And the rating was likely more front-loaded than ever with no particularly compelling storyline after the first couple picks.
  • The dramas had a much tougher time on Draft night; The Blacklist (1.2) had a number that is simply horrifying leading out of another invisible Blacklist repeat (0.5), while Elementary (1.2) was on the low end for CBS and Fox's Bones (0.9) and finale of Backstrom (0.7) each inched down as well. On the CW, The Vampire Diaries preliminarily notched its first ever 0.5.
