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

It was quite the 10PM hour on broadcast TV last night, as both NBC and ABC aired episodes largely revolving around their shows’ cancer patients. NBC:  PARENTHOOD scored a convincing win in the hour, matching its season h...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 12/18/12

The Voice hasn’t run out of steam just yet. NBC:  The cycle finale of THE VOICE hit a 4.9, way up from last week and even more impressively, up half a point from last spring’s finale.  Even a rerun of the previous...

THE SKED NEW YEAR’S NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/1/13

The networks oh-so-slowly began to climb out of their holiday cave. NBC:  What did PARENTHOOD ever do to justify its treatment by NBC?  The show has been subject to every kind of indignity throughout its run, and last night t...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 9/25/12

  No real winners. FOX:  People forget just how much NEW GIRL had slipped since the heady days of its premiere–although it sounds awful to compare last night’s pair of 2.7s to that 4.8 start a year ago, the ev...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/8/13

Life without The Voice isn’t so much fun. NBC:  Even in our DVR society, where people can watch what they want pretty much when they want, lead-ins still matter.  Thus the replacement of The Voice with oldster reality s...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 10/2/12

It’s awfully early in the season for such a lousy night. NBC:  The network was in a big hurry yesterday to announce full-season orders for GO ON and THE NEW NORMAL, and both shows responded by hitting new lows (the spin ...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/15/13

No major movements on the night as we await some finales and arrivals over the next few weeks. NBC:  PARENTHOOD, the Rodney Dangerfield of network television, won its hour with a steady 1.9, and was the network’s highest...

THE SKED: CBS Doubles Down on “Vegas,” Finds Back Order “Elementary”

  Neither VEGAS nor ELEMENTARY is setting television screens on fire with their 18-49 ratings so far. Vegas scored a 2.0 in its last airing that merely tied the perpetually bubbled Parenthood, and Elementary hit a somewha...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/29/13

The Tuesday sitcom picture has changed. FOX:  It wasn’t so long ago, back in the days when The Voice was still leading off the night for NBC, that New Girl struggled mightily just to keep up with Go On.  Last night̵...

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’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 – 10/30/12

  An extra hour of THE VOICE pulverized much of the competition. NBC:  THE VOICE, extended for an extra Tuesday hour, dominated the night with 4.6 (up 0.3 from last week’s 1-hour episode) and provided a huge lead-...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/19/13

No good news for anyone last night. ABC:  It was never clear why ABC renewed BODY OF PROOF, which had marginal ratings last season (reportedly foreign sales played a part, as the network’s in-house studio produces the sh...

THE SKED’S TUESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 11/13/12

Ugliness in almost all directions. NBC:  THE VOICE had by far its worst regular outing of the season at 3.0, down 0.8 from 2 weeks ago (Election Night preempted all of primetime last week) and tying a clip show that aired on O...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 4/16/13

  Another dim night for most of the networks. NBC:  Last night marked the season’s final Friday airing of GRIMM before it moves to Tuesdays, and its send-off was unpromising, a 1.3 that was down 0.2 from its last ne...
