THE SKED NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/11/13

  A few Thursday footnotes before the dreary Friday numbers.  NBC, with a 1.1 primetime average, not only tied its all-time in-season low for a Thursday without reruns, it was in 7th place among all networks, behind not j...

THE SKED NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/4/13

  ABC:  LAST MAN STANDING rose 0.2 from last week to 1.4, enough to tie it for 1st place in the timeslot on a sleepy Friday night.  But THE NEIGHBORS is probably just playing out its string, with no bump from last week&#...

THE SKED Network Ratings Scorecard – 9/27/13

  Nothing hit a 2 rating on the first Friday of the new season. CBS:  HAWAII 5-0 had an underwhelming Friday debut with 1.5, down 0.3 from last year’s Monday start.  It was even with the premiere of UNDERCOVER BOSS...

THE SKED NETWORK SCORECARD – 9/20/13

  Friday wasn’t a friendly neighborhood for ABC’s new arrival. ABC:  THE NEIGHBORS arrived on Fridays with a 1.2 thud, down from all its Wednesday numbers and also down 0.3 from its LAST MAN STANDING lead-in....

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 4/24/13

  The night before Sweeps was a dim one. FOX:  AMERICAN IDOL lost 0.2, for a 3.2 that was 0.1 above its series low and just half a point above Survivor. ABC:  HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS (FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE) sur...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 4/17/13

Two ABC sitcoms aired without their usual lead-ins, with mixed results. ABC:  The season finale of SUBURGATORY had to be a self-starter last night, airing as a one-hour without either Modern Family or The Middle as a lead-i...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 4/10/13

  Has American Idol finally leveled out? FOX:  After 3 weeks of consecutive drops that brought the show down 0.7 from a month ago, AMERICAN IDOL was up a tick last night to 3.2.  That’s still a full point below its...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 4/3/13

  A solid start for ABC’s new sitcom. ABC:  The night’s new configuration worked out well, at least for now.  THE MIDDLE was up 0.2 to 2.0 (still 15% below its season average), while SUBURGATORY, although sli...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/22/13

The last Friday of February sweeps was dull for every network. CBS:  After the failure of The Job, CBS rushed UNDERCOVER BOSS back into its 8PM slot, and although Boss outperformed the deceased show, its 1.5 was 0.4 lower tha...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/15/13

No one found a Week 2 bounce. FOX:  The season’s second episode of TOUCH fared even worse than last week’s season premiere, dropping 0.2 to a 0.7 that makes Fringe seem high-rated in comparison.  Touch couldn̵...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/8/13

A bad night for debuts. FOX:  No one showed up for the return of TOUCH, which started with a weak 1.1 in its first hour and fell to an even worse 0.9 in its second.  Unless things turn around quickly (unlikely, with Grimm on...

THE SKED FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/1/13

February begins with a night that can’t even find a single 2 rating. CBS:  UNDERCOVER BOSS had one of the two 1.9s of the night, steady with its last airing.  BLUE BLOODS and CSI NY were both at 1.5, which was down slig...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/18/13

Fringe moves on to another universe. FOX:  After years of lousy ratings, it would have been unrealistic to expect FRINGE to suddenly grow an audience at the last minute, and it didn’t:  the two-hour finale had a 1.0, wh...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/11/13

A good night for some grizzled vets. CBS:  After UNDERCOVER BOSS started the night with a 1.8 to win 8PM, CSI NY and BLUE BLOODS both hit season high 1.6s (the latter also winning its hour).  The whole line-up was up 0.2-0.3 ...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/4/13

You can’t go wrong with football. FOX:  Most of the major college bowl games have migrated to ESPN, but the COTTON BOWL remains on broadcast (for now), and gave FOX an easy win for the night, with a preliminary 3.1 ratin...
