    Andi Mack did okay and Raven’s Home did okay-ish. Coop & Cami Ask the World, not so much, sadly.

    Midnight, Texas, what’s the G/B mean is the G for the east coast and B the interrupted west coast version???


    • Amaury

      Not sure what B means, but G means gap. For example, 9:00–9:57 PM was the airing of a series, with an interruption at 9:58 PM, before resuming at 9:59 PM and finishing at 10:01 PM instead of 10:00 PM due to that interruption.


      • Shan

        I assume the two figures need to be averaged to get the total which would be 1.75/0.3


      • Luis

        Midnight, Texas was interrupted at 9:06pm (due to President George W.H. Bush’s death announcement) on the West Coast and resumed at 9:26pm according to my DVR’d episode. This resulted at a larger than average decline in the second half hour (its last original episode actually rose at the half hour). I’m glad that it’s accounted for in this week’s finals because it was certainly a sizable amount of the episode interrupted and I had to end up catching it on Hulu.


        • Shan

          That’s what you get when your in the timezone that’s three hours behind. In the east the msn news announcement only messed with Jimmy Fallon, which isn’t a help on his sagging ratings.
