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 WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 3/27/13

Even without The Voice as an excuse, most networks headed downward. FOX:  AMERICAN IDOL continued to plunge, down half a ratings point to 3.1, which happens to be just 0.1 ahead of X Factor’s average last fall. ABC:...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/13/13

A bad night for most. CBS:  SURVIVOR returned from its hiatus with its lowest cycle premiere ever, a 2.4 that was down 0.7 from last Spring’s start.  The show ran 90 minutes, and CBS filled in the gap with a 1.6 BIG BAN...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/6/13

February Sweeps stunts by NBC and CBS both fail. NBC:  The network aggressively promoted last night’s SVU because it featured Mike Tyson as a guest star, but the show dropped 0.2 to 1.5, in 4th place for its hour.  CHIC...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/30/13

A blah night for network TV. FOX:  AMERICAN IDOL may not be the behemoth it used to be, but it’s not going anywhere either, down just a tick to a still-powerful 5.4.  That’s higher than the combined ratings for AB...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 12/5/12

Thanks to Nielsen delays, Chicago Fire had to wait to get some unaccustomed good news. NBC:  CHICAGO FIRE benefits by not airing against a new CSI on CBS, because their audiences, while overlapping, prefer the latter when they...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 11/28/12

A strong week for network television continues. ABC:  A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, from way back in 1965, was up a bit from last year to 2.8, enough to tie for the lead in its hour.  That helped the 9PM hour, where MODERN FAMIL...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 11/14/12

Another night to consider how low a rating can justify a back order these days. NBC:  WHITNEY returned to the NBC schedule last night, and the same nobody who watched it last year came back for more.  The show kicked off with...

THE SKED’S NETWORK SCORECARD – 11/7/12

It’s good to be one week after Halloween, as week-to-week comparisons in most cases look unusually good after last week’s low holiday numbers.  The exception is wherever The Voice comes into play. ABC:  Everything...

UPDATED: THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/24/12

World Series Game 1 won the night, but didn’t seem to affect anyone else very much. ABC:  After a slightly increased 2.6 (in final numbers) steady 2.5 from its THE MIDDLE lead-in, THE NEIGHBORS was up a tick to 2.0, stil...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/17/12

Only one of last week’s premieres held its number. CW:  What does it say about the broadcast season when the only good news on a fall night came from CW?  ARROW is looking like a genuine hit with a steady 1.3, beating h...

THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/3/12

Primetime was only an hour long last night (2 for CW), so not much to say.  In preliminary numbers, NBC’s news division won bragging rights to victory in the OBAMA VS. ROMNEY miniseries that took up the rest of the eveni...
