Spotted Ratings, Sunday 5/22/16


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Billboard Music Awards adjusted up to 3.2, down 16% from last year. It couldn't top Game of Thrones (3.96) for top program of the night and very nearly lost to the NBA game on TNT (3.11).
    • On AMC, it was a narrowly down midseason finale for Fear the Walking Dead (1.88), leading into the pilot of Preacher (0.90) at 10/9c. Preacher can be a long-term AMC player if it holds anywhere close to that, of course, though it is worth noting that Into the Badlands had very similar retention of a much larger lead-in (3.15 out of 6.51) back in the fall.
  • ABC beat the combined big four competition on the last Sunday of the season with the Billboard Music Awards (2.9). This show has historically not adjusted much in finals due to the West Coast edition being tape-delayed, but this year it aired live in all time zones so it may go up more. But it still looks like the show will decline year-to-year (vs. last year's 3.8) for the first time since its resurrection on ABC in 2012.
  • It was a low-end finale night for Fox's animated comedies, with Bordertown (0.5) wrapping its run in the 7/6c hour while The Simpsons (1.0) and Family Guy (1.2) each tied season lows. And a double dose of Bob's Burgers averaged 1.0 at 8:30 and 0.9 at 9:30. Overall, these shows were not that much worse than last year's 1.3/1.1/1.3/1.1 finale night, though.
  •  The Billboard effect seemed more pronounced on the other networks, as CBS went even lower with another double dose of 60 Minutes (0.8/0.8) leading into a couple more weak originals of Undercover Boss (0.8/0.7). At this point, it seems we can lump the Boss in with other emergency late-season spackle like Beyond the Tank and Hollywood Game Night, which seemed to get much weaker in their second runs of the season.
  • And it was even more brutal on NBC, as the comedies The Carmichael Show (0.5) and Crowded (0.4) got absolutely slaughtered. These shows were down by three more tenths from the already low results last week! Both Undercover Boss and Carmichael will actually be back next week with originals on the first Sunday of the summer, when there will be less competition but also much less overall viewing due to Memorial Day weekend.
