THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/23/12

3 sitcoms at 9PM were 1 too many. NBC:  THE VOICE, and its network, won the night, but Monday’s decline may not have been due to the shortened episode and combination of sports and Presidential debate.  Last night’...

THE SKED FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD: 12/14/12

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/5/13

Smash = Moose Murders. NBC:  Despite enormous, and well-publicized, behind the scenes changes, and weeks of intensive, expensive marketing, NBC couldn’t convince viewers to give SMASH another chance, and the Season 2 pre...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 3/5/13

Just a dismal night, even for the winners. FOX:  A special 2-hour AMERICAN IDOL (live, except on the west coast) won the night with a 3.4, but according to CBS, during the 8PM hour it was actually at 3.3 (climbing in Hour 2), ...

THE SKED’S Friday-Monday Cable Scorecard – 5/3-6/13

  FRIDAY STARZ:  DA VINCI’S DEMONS stayed at an 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demo, and had a very slight increase among older viewers to give it 420K.  With such a serialized storyline, it seems unlikely to move much hi...

THE SKED NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/14/13

  CBS’s temporary fix to its Monday problem both worked and didn’t. CBS:  Back in its original 8:30PM timeslot behind HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (which was even at 3.0), 2 BROKE GIRLS rose 0.2 to 2.5, a big improvement...
