Primetime Ratings, Friday, 4/11/14

 

Unforgettable (CBS)

 

ABC and CBS split the 18-49 demo win, while CBS drew the most total viewers.

'Last Man Standing' took a small tumble, falling two tenths to a 1.2. The season and (most likely series) finale of 'The Neighbors' matched last week's 0.9. 'Shark Tank' posted a 1.8, down two tenths from last Friday, but up a single tenth from Thursday's special airing. '20/20' matched last week's 1.5.

'Unforgettable' rose ever so slightly to a 1.0 to begin the Eye's night. 'Hawaii Five-0' dropped one tenth to a 1.3. 'Blue Bloods' also dropped a tenth, earning a 1.4. The season premiere of FOX's 'Kitchen Nightmares' scored a 1.2, up three tenths from last season's opener. A second new episode earned a 1.1, also up from last season's second installment.

An NBC News special about the Boston Bombings scored an underwhelming 0.7 demo, and a little less than four million total viewers. That's down four tenths from what 'Dateline' earned in the same slot last Friday. 'Grimm' followed that up by dipping three tenths to a 1.1. 'Hannibal' fell to a 0.7, matching its previous series low. I considered downgrading it, but if it can survive a 0.7 once, it can do it again. As for The CW, 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' matched last week's 0.4, while 'Hart of Dixie' rose to a 0.3.

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.)

Note: Ratings expectations for shows airing on Friday night are generally lower.

considering the ratings of the current 8:30 occupant on ABC I bet the boobs who approved the renewal of the crappy sitcom, 'The Neighbors' is not looking to smart. Reba's sitcom "Malibu" drew much better numbers last year in that slot.
