Primetime Ratings, Tuesday, 4/8/14

 

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

 

NBC and CBS split the Tuesday victory.

'The Voice' dipped two tenths to a season low of 2.9 for the Peacock, although it still got the 18-49 demo victory as usual. 'About a Boy's future complexion changed in the span of one week, falling three tenths to a 1.7, a new low for the freshman comedy. I'm not ready to downgrade my prediction, but that has more to do with how weak NBC's comedy crop is then anything else. 'Growing Up Fisher' also set a new low, dropping a tenth to a 1.5. 'Chicago Fire' also dropped a tenth, posting a 1.8.

'NCIS' rose two tenths to a 2.6 to start CBS' night. Conversely, 'NCIS: LA' dipped a tenth to a 2.3. 'Glee' rose a single tenth to a 1.0 for FOX. The first new episode of 'The Mindy Project' matched last week's 1.0, while a second episode rose a smidge to a 1.1.

Surprisingly, 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' did not receive any type of ratings bump post-'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' instead falling a tenth to a 1.9. 'The Goldbergs' tied its previous series low of 1.4. Finally, 'Trophy Wife' dropped back down two tenths to its old series low of 0.8, dashing the hopes of any fans who were pleased by last week's rise to 1.0.

PRIMETIME PROGNOSTICATION

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.)
