THE SKED’S WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 4/10/13

  Has American Idol finally leveled out? FOX:  After 3 weeks of consecutive drops that brought the show down 0.7 from a month ago, AMERICAN IDOL was up a tick last night to 3.2.  That’s still a full point below its...

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 FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/22/13

The last Friday of February sweeps was dull for every network. CBS:  After the failure of The Job, CBS rushed UNDERCOVER BOSS back into its 8PM slot, and although Boss outperformed the deceased show, its 1.5 was 0.4 lower tha...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/15/13

No one found a Week 2 bounce. FOX:  The season’s second episode of TOUCH fared even worse than last week’s season premiere, dropping 0.2 to a 0.7 that makes Fringe seem high-rated in comparison.  Touch couldn̵...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/8/13

A bad night for debuts. FOX:  No one showed up for the return of TOUCH, which started with a weak 1.1 in its first hour and fell to an even worse 0.9 in its second.  Unless things turn around quickly (unlikely, with Grimm on...

THE SKED FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 2/1/13

February begins with a night that can’t even find a single 2 rating. CBS:  UNDERCOVER BOSS had one of the two 1.9s of the night, steady with its last airing.  BLUE BLOODS and CSI NY were both at 1.5, which was down slig...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/18/13

Fringe moves on to another universe. FOX:  After years of lousy ratings, it would have been unrealistic to expect FRINGE to suddenly grow an audience at the last minute, and it didn’t:  the two-hour finale had a 1.0, wh...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/11/13

A good night for some grizzled vets. CBS:  After UNDERCOVER BOSS started the night with a 1.8 to win 8PM, CSI NY and BLUE BLOODS both hit season high 1.6s (the latter also winning its hour).  The whole line-up was up 0.2-0.3 ...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1/4/13

You can’t go wrong with football. FOX:  Most of the major college bowl games have migrated to ESPN, but the COTTON BOWL remains on broadcast (for now), and gave FOX an easy win for the night, with a preliminary 3.1 ratin...

THE SKED FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD: 12/14/12

The 10PM hour was taken up by news shows concerning some of the saddest of recent events. FOX:  Lacking a news division of its own (let’s pretend its affiliated cable network doesn’t exist), FOX aired its regular l...

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

A newsmagazine took the crown on a mostly down night. NBC:  There must have been some reason why DATELINE zoomed 0.6 from last week, increasing its rating by more than 50% and topping the night with a 1.7.  Whatever it was, t...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 11/16/12

Suddenly those ABC sitcoms aren’t such sure things. ABC:  For the third consecutive week, LAST MAN STANDING and MALIBU COUNTRY fell, to 1.4 and 1.3 respectively.  That’s particularly worrisome for Malibu, which dr...

THE SKED’S FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 11/9/12

That didn’t take long. ABC:  At twin 1.6s, LAST MAN STANDING and MALIBU COUNTRY are still “hits” by Friday standards.  (Just ask NBC, which has been calling Grimm a hit for a year and a half with ratings at ...
