Primetime Ratings, Sunday, 5/11/14

 

Once Upon a Time (ABC)

 

ABC and CBS split the Sunday victory.

'America's Funniest Home Videos' began the night by matching last week's 1.6. The two-hour season finale of 'Once Upon a Time' earned a 2.3, up two tenths from last week, and even with 2013's swan song. The much talked about season finale of 'Revenge' scored a 1.4, up a single tenth from last week, but down three tenths from last season's conclusion.

'60 Minutes' started things off for the Eye by rising a tenth to a 1.1. 'The Amazing Race' matched last week's 1.7. Renewed dramas 'The Good Wife' and 'The Mentalist' earned matching 1.2s, the former increasing one tenth, and the latter tying last week's series low.

FOX's entire Sunday line-up fell, starting with 'Bob's Burgers' dipping two tenths to a 0.9. 'American Dad' dropped a single tenth, posting a 1.2. 'The Simpsons' plunged four tenths to a 1.6. 'Family Guy' dipped a tenth to a 2.1. 'Cosmos' tumbled down half a point to a 1.1.

'Dateline' fell half a point to a 0.6 for NBC. The Peacock's heavily hyped Zoe Saldana/Jason Isaacs fronted minseries adaptation of the classic horror novel 'Rosemary's Baby' disappointed in a big way, earning only a 1.1. That's a single tenth higher than the collective 1.0 that now canceled drama duo 'Believe' and 'Crisis' pulled down last Sunday night.

PRIMETIME PROGNOSTICATION

Brace yourself faithful readers, as Primetime Prognostication is about to do some house cleaning. With cancellation/renewal decisions for every scripted broadcast network show now in, every show that has already aired all its episodes for this season is being removed from its network's respective section, to make room for soon to premiere summer series.

As further shows end their seasons, they too will be removed from their corresponding sections. I've also cleaned up and updated my final prediction stats chart for the 2013-2014 TV season, which can be viewed at the bottom. That will stay put until the end of May. I will continue to make predictions for all scripted summer programs, and start the whole thing over in the fall.

The five main factors I consider when making a prediction are thus:

1. Does the show win its timeslot, and how often? (CW shows are exempt from this criteria.)

2. How do the show's ratings compare to similar programs on the same network? (Self explanatory.)

3. How long has the show been on the air? (Veteran series are always more likely to get renewed.)

4. Does the show have any high-profile leads? (Never discount star power.)

5. How much does the show cost to make? (Approximately, exact TV budgets are hard to come by.)
