Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/7/16


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Big Bang Theory (3.1) adjusted up while The Odd Couple (1.5) and The 100 (0.4) adjusted down.
  • Fox said goodbye to its ten-time megahit American Idol, which averaged a 2.6 in the 8:00 hour and a 3.3 at 9:00. After finals, this should at least tie and maybe beat the previous season high 3.0 (especially since the last few minutes are not included in the hourly averages). It is not exactly a reclamation of Idol's former ratings glory, but it still trounced the last couple Idol finales (1.7  last year and 2.6 in 2014), and was bigger in A18-49+ than the 2013 one as well (3.6).
  • Even on this big finale night, Idol skewed a lot older than it used to, so maybe it's fitting that CBS actually took the hardest hit against the finale. The Big Bang Theory (3.0) preliminarily went a half point behind its previous season low, providing a relatively soft lead-in for the season two premiere of The Odd Couple, which only had a 1.6 at 8:30. Even out of a diminished lead-in, it looks a little worse retention-wise than Life in Pieces usually did (and it may get worse after finals). So this whole night will have to hope to fare better with Idol out of the picture; Mom (1.5), 2 Broke Girls (1.4) and week two of Rush Hour (0.9) all dropped by two tenths.
  • Meanwhile, the younger-skewing TGIT actually held up well, with Grey's Anatomy (2.1) down by just a tenth and Scandal (1.7) even. And at 10/9c, The Catch (1.1) tried to throw its hat back in the ring by inching up in week three.
  • It was an unfortunate time for The Blacklist (1.2) to return from a long hiatus, and it posted a new season low. NBC did hold off for a week on the new series that will surround it going forward, instead using a repeat of Little Big Shots (0.8) at 8/7c and Law and Order: SVU (0.8) at 10/9c.
  • The CW had Legends of Tomorrow (0.7) and, at least in the prelims, a 0.5 for The 100.
