Cablemetrics: Doctor Who, The Bastard Executioner, Switched at Birth, The Haves and the Have Nots


These numbers are current through Thursday, September 24.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The only new entry this week is the veteran British import Doctor Who (0.87), which continued to show year-to-year growth for BBC America. Being up another 2% from last year's premiere is pretty impressive considering the year-ago premiere was introducing a new Doctor. If last year was any indication, this show won't stay in the cable upper echelon; the 2014 season shed half of that 0.85 premiere in the next two weeks. But maybe this season can hold up better since there shouldn't be as much "new Doctor" inflation in week one?
  • Also notable this week was a slew of significant drops against the broadcast premiere week. The roughest by far was definitely FX's newbie The Bastard Executioner (0.39), which dropped a ridiculous 53% in week two and instantly went from an upper-tier cable drama to barely middling. It was rough premiere Monday for ABC Family as Switched at Birth (0.27) crumbled to a new low after quietly growing in its early summer run. And it continues to get even uglier for TNT's Public Morals (0.12), which has now lost well over half its premiere audience and is in true megabomb territory by TNT standards.
  • Bucking the bad broadcast premiere week trend was Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots on OWN, which had a huge finale spike to what looks like a new series high 1.19.
