Primetime Ratings, Friday, 2/21/14


Shark Tank


NBC again won the night in all measures. Unfortunately for the Peacock (and fortunately for fans of new scripted shows) the Olympics finally end on Sunday night.

Speaking of the Winter Games in Sochi, night 16 of NBC's coverage absolutely dive-bombed, garnering a meager 3.5 demo and drawing in a total audience of only 14.5 million viewers. Since the final Friday of 2010's Vancouver Games earned a whopping 6.1, that number represents the biggest Olympics to Olympics drop of the entire Sochi Games. Needless to say, it's also now the lowest rated Olympic broadcast of the year, and (with the end coming soon) is likely to stay that way.

Elsewhere, ABC was the only network brave enough to air competing original programming. That's actually a bit amusing when you consider just how poorly the night's Olympic broadcast did. If CBS had aired a new 'Hawaii Five-0' and NBC had aired a new 'Grimm', the Sochi Games may have only posted a 2.5 for the night.

Anyway, 'Shark Tank' returned down after almost a full month layoff, falling four tenths to a 1.7. In its defense, that 2.1 was the highest rating 'Shark' had drawn in months. So all in all, not too bad of a drop when paired against the Olympics. Oddly, lead-out '20/20' actually rose four tenths to a 1.5.

It figures that the one time I don't put the show name as the alt text title on a photo, someone wants to know what show the picture is from. :)


Your assumption is correct Jaguardog, it's a still from Friday's episode of Shark Tank. DDP was on Shark Tank pitching his DDP Yoga business.

Mike I hope you can help me here?  I saw this photo as it caught my eye with DDP (Diamond Dallas Page) in it and on the board it shows "DDP YOGA".  I do not see any mention above of why this photo is even here?  Was this a scene in the show "Shark Tank" or one of the other shows mentioned above?  It would really be nice if you guys would either put a caption explanation under your photos or at least expalined somewhere in your summary information why the photo is showing at all please in the future?
