THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/17/13

CBS does FOX a favor. FOX:  With CBS in reruns last night, AMERICAN IDOL didn’t have to face fresh episodes of Big Bang Theory or 2 1/2 Men.  That allowed Idol to tie last year’s 5.6 Thursday premiere (which had t...

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 12/13/12

Another Thursday where football simulcasts could affect ratings on 2 networks.  For now, at least, Scandal is having a moment. ABC:  The midseason finale of SCANDAL, pre-football adjustment in Philadelphia, is at what would b...

THE SKED THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 12/6/12

Scandal shows some heat. ABC:  A dynamite episode of SCANDAL (written by creator Shonda Rhimes) that managed to propel the story both backwards and forwards via flashbacks and a startling episode-ending revelation had by far i...

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 11/29/12

The week’s good times stop rolling for the networks.  (Note, comparisons are to 2 weeks ago, as shows were either preempted on Thanksgiving night or had atypical numbers.) ABC:  LAST RESORT, now just playing out its str...

NBC grouts another night with its filling of choice. NBC:  So, yes–shoving THE VOICE into just about any timeslot on the schedule will lift both that slot and whatever follows it.  But last night’s special episode...

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/25/12

Several TV institutions tottered last night. ABC:  It’s going to be awfully hard to justify a back order for LAST RESORT, which plunged 0.4 to a terrible 1.3.  Perhaps even scarier for ABC was GREY’S ANATOMY.  Th...

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/18/12

Sometimes stunt casting works. CBS:  On a night when most of broadcast TV was even at best, 2/2 MEN was up a healthy half-ratings point from last week to 4.0, by far its best Thursday rating thus far.  The reason seems to be ...

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/4/12

30 Rock sinks like a stone. NBC:  Yes, things could get worse for NBC’s Thursday.  30 ROCK, making its final season debut, kicked off with a dreadful 1.3, down in every measurable respect (last season’s premiere, ...

UPDATED: THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 9/27/12

[UPDATE:  As expected, the post-football numbers for NBC left its shows with ratings virtually identical to last week’s.  Optimists might say that’s an accomplishment with this week’s much stronger competiti...
