THE SKED NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/17/13

  CW’s experiment with historical romance didn’t get off to a great start. CW:  An 0.8 isn’t a terrible number for CW, so if REIGN can manage to hold there, it has a chance.  But its debut was 0.2 below...

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 4/25/13

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/21/13

Not the kind of history the major networks like to set. CW:  Last night may have been the first time a CW series beat not one, but two of the big networks, as THE VAMPIRE DIARIES climbed an impressive 0.3 to 1.3 and NBC and AB...

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/31/13

NBC looks to its past–and faces its present. NBC:  30 ROCK had a nice send-off, a 1.9 that was up half a point from last week as old fans gathered to watch the gang one last time.  But “catastrophic” doesn&#...

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...

THE SKED’S THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 11/15/12

CBS dominates, without a singing competition to be seen. CBS:  THE BIG BANG THEORY, 2 1/2 MEN and PERSON OF INTEREST all had their best outings of the season.  Big Bang was particularly impressive, up 0.4 to a huge 5.5 that a...
