Spotted Ratings, Thursday 5/7/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Big Bang Theory (3.7) went up two tenths but was still down 24% vs. last year's finale. Grey's Anatomy (2.1) had a rare downtick.
  • With no NFL Draft and a very rare night at this time of year with no NBA playoffs, CBS' season finale of The Big Bang Theory (3.5) still managed only a minor week-to-week bounceback. And it was a revealing night for The Odd Couple; a 1.8 at 8:30 is bad (will likely be 50% retention or less after finals), and then it dropped to just a 1.5 in the 9:00 hour. It was always pretty clear this show was no Mom, but this was a bad week even by TOC's previous standards. A weaker 9/8c occupant also helped derail the 9:30 TBBT repeat (1.4) and an original Elementary (1.1).
  • On ABC, TGIT got another week removed from the big Grey's Anatomy events and was closer to its late-season norm, though Grey's (2.2) was still a little higher than what it was doing a month or so ago. Scandal (2.2) remained pretty modest.
  • After an ugly week vs. the NFL Draft, several of last week's dramas mercifully rebounded. The Blacklist (1.4) got some of last week's collapse back even as the installation of a Law and Order: SVU repeat (0.6) brought little improvement at 8/7c. Bones (1.1/1.1) was narrowly up for two original hours, and CW's The Vampire Diaries (0.6) dodged a second straight 0.5.
