Fast National ratings for Thursday, May 23, 2013
Summer programming has begun, which means ratings are a little quieter than normal. "Rookie Blue" premiered for its fourth season on ABC to the best ratings it has seen since its Season 3 premiere. Its lead-in, "Motive," premiered in its regular timeslot with a loss of about a million viewers from its preview episode on Monday. The "Save Me" premiere on NBC earned a modest 3 million viewers.
CBS' reruns won the night with 6.6 million viewers and a 4.3 rating/7 share in households. ABC was next at 5.3 million, 3.5/6, followed by Fox at 4.3 million, 2.6/4, NBC at 2.6 million, 1.8/3 and the CW at 799,000 and 0.6/1.
The 18-49 demo went to Fox's reality shows, however, with a 1.7, followed by CBS at 1.4, ABC at 1.2, NBC at 0.8 and the CW at 0.2.
Thursday hour by hour:
CBS: "Big Bang Theory" rerun (8.8 million viewers, 5.6/10 households)/"Two and a Half Men" rerun (7.6 million, 4.9/8)
Fox: "Hell's Kitchen" (5.5 million, »
The first night following the conclusion of the television season saw the Big Four roll out some new summer programs, though none made much of a mark. ABC did Ok with “Motive” (pictured), and Fox with “Does Someone Have to Go,” but it was a soft start for NBC comedy “Save Me.”
Fox won Thursday among young adults while CBS prevailed in other categories despite an all-repeat lineup.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, won the night’s opening hour in 18-49 with “Hell’s Kitchen” (2.1/7 in 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall), finishing a bit behind a repeat of CBS’ “Big Bang Theory” at 8 and then pulling ahead of the Eye’s “Two and a Half Men” at 8:30. The time-period debut of “Kitchen” rose 17% above its season premiere on Monday of last week (1.8) opposite season finales, and was Thursday’s No. 1 series in several categories, including men 18-49 (2.0/7) and »

Charlie's brother Emilio decided to keep their family name, Estevez, and it now appears as if Sheen has decided to follow suit.
In the flick, the 47-year-old was cast as President of the United States along Lady Gaga, Amber Heard, Vanessa Hudgens, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba and Danny Trejo. Since Robert Rodriguez, director of "Machete Kills," is known for his latin pride, Sheen decided to be Estevez. »

With May Sweeps over, the overall rankings for the broadcast networks’ 2012-13 TV season have been released, and CBS’ NCIS this time around seized the title of Most Watched Program, edging out NBC’s Sunday Night Football with an average of 21.3 million weekly viewers (including all available DVR playback data).
Snf, however, still is demo king, having averaged a weekly 7.9 rating.

The major broadcasters were nothing if not tightly bunched in the May sweep, with all four separated by about 125,000 viewers in the adults 18-49 demo.
The close finish shows that, at least in a month when none of its rivals gets a big boost from sports, ABC can be pretty competitive. The net may have finished the season that ended Wednesday night in fourth place, but it tied CBS and Fox for the 18-49 lead in preliminary Nielsen estimates for the April 25-May 22 period — the first time in 13 years that the Alphabet finished first for the sweep.
Of course, the tight finish for the sweep also shows how the networks have fallen: As the numbers drift lower and lower, it’s only natural that we would see closer races.
NBC, which placed fourth in May (1.7 rating) but just one tenth behind ABC, CBS and Fox (all at 1.8), was the only »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, May 22, 2013
The 2012-13 TV season (as measured by Nielsen) ended with a CBS victory, thanks to the two-hour season finale of "Criminal Minds."
The crime drama was off significantly from last year's finale, but it did improve a little on its numbers from a week ago. The season finales of "The Middle," "Modern Family" and "Nashville" were all up a bit for ABC. "Law & Order: Svu" ticked up with its finale on NBC, but "Chicago Fire" slipped from last week. "Masterchef" opened its season to decent ratings on Fox.
CBS finished the night with just under 9 million viewers and a 5.8 rating/10 share in households. ABC (6.9 million, 4.5/7) came in second, a little bit ahead of NBC (6.3 million, 4.4/7). Fox took fourth with 5.2 million viewers and a 3.2/5. The CW drew 1.1 million viewers and a 0.8/1.
ABC and CBS tied for the lead among adults 18-49, with each posting a 2.2 rating in the demographic. »
ABC’s “Modern Family” emerged the leader in key demos on Wednesday, the final night of the television season, while a two-hour “Criminal Minds” performed well for CBS and won its timeslot. Despite facing “Minds,” rookie dramas “Nashville” on ABC and “Chicago Fire” on NBC had solid ends to their seasons, with the former hitting a four-month high.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, ABC tied with CBS for the Wednesday lead among adults 18-49, opening with “The Middle” (2.0/7 in 18-49, 7.5 million viewers overall), which wrapped its fourth season as the 8 p.m. leader in most categories, on par with last year’s finale in 18-49 and its most-watched season-ender overall since its rookie season. Following a special “Modern Family” repeat at 8:30 (1.6/5 in 18-49, 5.6 million viewers overall), the fourth-season finale of “Modern” averaged a timeslot-leading 3.6 rating/11 share in adults 18-49 and 9.9 million viewers overall — on par with last »

The sun has set (or risen?) on Summit Entertainment’s venerable vampire series — but even though it, like Robsten, is officially kaput, Twilight still holds a hypnotic power over people of a certain age. (That age is “young.”)
The last installment of the blood-sucking saga dominates the “first wave” of nominees at this year’s Teen Choice Awards, which single out the movies, TV series, music, fashion, comedians, athletes, and performers that resonate most with today’s 13- through 19-year-olds.

"Bad Teacher" is going from the big screen to the small screen with a 13 episode order from CBS.
CBS presented their fall schedule to advertisers last week but they warned their may be more series orders coming, and "Teacher" had been rumored to be in that mix. The half hour comedy stars Ari Graynor ("For a Good Time, Call..."; "The Sitter") in the role of a foul-mouthed, golddigging, entirely appropriate teacher played by Cameron Diaz in the 2011 comedy hit.
That film was notably R-rated, so we're sure the CBS version will take on a slightly different tone. Of course, CBS is used to pushing the envelope with risque comedies including hits "Two and a Half Men" and "2 Broke Girls."
"Bad Teacher" is one of three single camera comedies picked up by CBS this year, which usually sticks to more traditional multi-camera comedies filmed in front of a studio audience.
Last week, the nation’s biggest TV networks made glitzy “upfront” presentations to advertisers in the hopes of tempting them to sponsor this fall’s TV slate. This week, so far, marketers are keeping their wallets in their pockets.
Ad buyers and other executives familiar with the pace of upfront discussions said advertisers are still registering budgets and analyzing pilots. As such, the networks continue to hold discussions with potential sponsors, these people said, but little if any money has been committed as of yet.
“We are still getting a handle on client budgets. Every day that goes by, we get a little bit clearer picture of what our client needs are,” said one ad-buying executive. “I don’t think we feel we’re ready to move, but I also don’t think we feel a big rush to move.”
The sentiment is typical of the preliminary part of the »
