Primetime Ratings, Saturday, 5/18/13 & Sunday, 5/19/13

The Simpsons

FOX & CBS split the Saturday win, while ABC took Sunday.

The season finale of America's Funniest Home Videos rose a whopping 29% to a 1.8. The 2013 edition of the Billboard Music Awards (complete with Miguel almost decapitating a fan with a Hulk Hogan-style leg drop) rose 33% to a 3.6 demo. This represents the best 18-49 rating for the telecast in ten years.

The final two episodes of The Cleveland Show drew an 0.9 and a 1.1 respectively. Part one of a double shot of The Simpsons dropped two tenths to a 1.8., but the season finale at 8:30 bumped that up to a 2.1, matching last year's sign-off. Both new episodes of Family Guy were up from last week, but were down slightly from last year's finale.

60 Minutes dropped a tenth at 7pm, then dropped another tenth at 8pm. A Tim McGraw concert special scored an unimpressive 1.2 demo. The season finale of The Celebrity Apprentice rose 15% from last week's season low, but was down a massive 32% from last spring's swan song. I really wouldn't be surprised if the next season of TCA is the last.
