Spotted Ratings, Thursday 3/17/16


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The second season finale of How to Get Away with Murder posted a typical 1.4 rating, down by exactly half from its strong season one closer (2.8 on 2/26/2015). As usual, the biggest winner in the TGIT lineup was easily Grey's Anatomy (2.1), which matched last week despite airing in the hour that should be hardest hit by Daylight Saving Time. Scandal inched down to a new low 1.6 (though it had a prelim 1.6 last week and adjusted up).
  • With two blowouts on its air, the first primetime night of March Madness on CBS averaged a preliminary 1.2/1.3/1.3 across the three hours. This will end up significantly below last year's 1.6/1.8 opening games.
  • American Idol (1.6/1.7) was seemingly the only real DST victim on this Thursday, taking another hit to its ratings with the series end just three weeks away.
  • NBC struggled again in the opening hours with You, Me and the Apocalypse (0.6) and a repeat of The Blacklist (0.5) but built big at 10/9c with Shades of Blue (1.0).
  • And the CW began a two-week hiatus for its Thursday lineup with repeats of Legends of Tomorrow (0.4) and The 100 (0.2).

(Please note that the year-ago comparisons are 52-weeks-ago for the next couple Thursday/Fridays, since March Madness began 52 weeks ago rather than 53 like most events.)
