Primetime Ratings, Saturday, 4/6/13 & Sunday, 4/7/13

Smash

CBS won in all measures on both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday's victory was thanks to more NCAA basketball, while Sunday saw the Eye air the Academy of Country Music Awards.

I don't usually discuss the TV wasteland that is Saturday very much, but this past weekend is notable due to the Saturday night debut of NBC's Smash. If Friday night is the network 'death slot', Saturday is truly the primetime morgue drawer. As you might expect, the musical/drama drew a series low demo of 0.5., a drop of 44% from its last airing on Tuesday. If it wasn't clear before that NBC is quietly euthanizing the struggling series, it sure is now.

As for Sunday, the ACM awards earned a 4.3 for CBS, rising over a full point from last year's show. CBS' other new offering, 60 Minutes, did the reverse of that, dropping a full point from last week. NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice hit a new season low of 1.4. FOX's only new program was The Cleveland Show, which rose three tenths from its last new outing.
