Cablemetrics: The Shannara Chronicles, Suits, The Walking Dead, Vinyl


These numbers are current through Thursday, March 3.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Slow premiere week, but there were a couple season finales. MTV's The Shannara Chronicles (0.40) headed to the bubble with its best rating in four weeks. Given that it only started with a 0.48, this show held on decently enough in the post-premiere episodes. But is a 0.4ish same-day rating enough for a likely expensive fantasy epic? To be seen...
  • USA's Suits finished off the regular season portion of its year with a 0.52, the highest rating since the spring premiere. It was one of the healthiest shows in cable this winter, with the six episodes down just 3% year-to-year.
  • The Walking Dead (6.08) dropped by 8% against the Academy Awards. That was a reasonable 12% behind last year's third spring episode, when it had a big rebound from its low against SNL40.
  • HBO's Vinyl (0.20) also braved the Oscar competition and did not hold on so well, plummeting by over a quarter of last week's rating. However, its lead-out Girls (0.26) was actually up from the premiere.
