Thursday TV Ratings: Grey’S Anatomy Stays Up, The Blacklist Finds a New Low

1 May 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Thursday TV ratings for April 30th are in; here are some of the highlights: Though down to a season low, CBS's The Big Bang Theory still won the 8 p.m. hour with a 3.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, and 13.45 million total viewers. (With those numbers, CBS unsurprisingly won the night with viewers overall). A two hour block of Grey's Anatomy on ABC was down 7 percent at 8 p.m. to a 2.5 rating and 8.68 million viewers, although that's still much higher than it has been pulling on average this season. At 9 p.m., Grey's performed very well, improving on Scandal's numbers in that slot by a significant amount, and notching a 2.6 rating while keeping its 8.68 million viewers. Those numbers also helped ABC win the ratings race for the night. Bones, though, was down to a series low on Fox at 8 p.m., with a 0.9 rating and 4.18 million viewers. The Vampire Diaries »

Thursday Ratings: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Dips but Stays Strong for McDreamy Farewell

1 May 2015 9:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Male-friendly shows “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Blacklist” took a hit opposite coverage of the NFL draft last night, while ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” saw good results for a two-hour episode that dealt with the aftermath of last week’s storyline shocker which saw Patrick Dempsey’s Derek Shepherd exit the series. While “Big Bang” remained the night’s top program, “Blacklist” hit a series low for the second straight week.

As for the NFL draft, it averaged a combined 5.1 rating on Espn and NFL Network, down about 25% from last year. The primary interest in last night’s opening round came in the first two picks, which came during primetime’s opening half-hour, and there weren’t as many storylines or big-name players drafted later in the first round.

At CBS, “The Big Bang Theory” averaged a 3.2 rating/12 share in adults 18-49 and 13.4 million viewers overall, according to »

TV Ratings: 'Grey's Anatomy' grief, low 'Big Bang Theory' lead Thursday

1 May 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, April 30, 2015. Two hours of "Grey's Anatomy" grieving helped ABC eke out a slim Thursday win among young viewers, while an unusually low-rated "The Big Bang Theory" helped pace CBS' comfortable overall victory.  "Grey's Anatomy" was down from last week's poorly-kept-secret of a shocker, but it was still the show's second best performance since January. Thursday was full of ugly numbers, including a series low for "The Blacklist," a dip below The Mulaney Line for "Bones," a low finale for "Backstrom" and an inability to retain a solid lead-in from "American Crime."  On the more positive side, "Mom" ended its season on a high-ish note. Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 2.0 rating for Thursday night, edging out CBS' 1.9 rating in the key demographic. [With "Big Bang Theory" prone to Live+Sd Finals upticks, it wouldn't be surprising to see CBS either tie or top ABC for the night.] There was a big drop to NBC's 0.9 key demo rating and to the 0.8 key demo rating for Fox. »

Ratings: Grey's Anatomy Dips With Divisive Derek Death Aftermath

1 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Grey’s Anatomy‘s two-hour, timey-wimey, May Sweeps Scorecard-slamming look at the aftermath of Derek Shepherd’s tragic death averaged 8.7 million total viewers and a 2.6 demo rating on Thursday night, down 9 percent from last week’s best-since-season premiere numbers.

For those who like half-hourly breakdowns, it went like this: 8.9 mil/2.6 > 8.4 mil/2.4> 8.6 mil/2.6 > 8.8 mil/2.7. TVLine readers gave the divisive episode an average grade of “C.”

Leading out of that, American Crime (3.8 mil/1.0) dropped a few eyeballs but ticked up in the demo.

Mrs. Wolowitz and Grief

1 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I recently lost my mother after taking care of her for many years. My father died almost a decade ago. But this is not a sob story, it’s a journey of discovery I found mirrored on television. The Big Bang Theory has been a favorite of mine since it premiered (as a chemist, I appreciate it having actual science jokes), and over the past seven seasons, I have grown with the characters. The series improved and matured when it added female scientists Bernadette Rostenkowski and Amy Farrah Fowler to the main cast, demonstrating that geeks and other intelligent people are not all extras from Revenge of the Nerds. Particularly helped by the addition of these characters was Howard Wolowitz. Played by Simon Helberg, Howard has developed the most out of all the characters over the series’ run, going from a wannabe pick-up artist mamma’s boy to a caring and supportive husband to Bernadette. »

CBS’ Leslie Moonves: New Revenue Sources Drive 40% of Earnings

29 April 2015 4:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The radical changes the entertainment business has undergone as a result of new technology and expanding world markets was exemplified to Leslie Moonves by one fact: In a recent reporting period, he saw that 40% of  his company’s earnings came from sources that did not exist five years ago, the CBS Corp. boss told an audience Wednesday at the Milken Institute Global Conference.

Speaking on the topic of “Trends in Global Entertainment,” Moonves said that sources such as Netflix, Amazon, expanded international markets, retransmission consent fees and a new paid subscription service, CBS All Access, had augmented what was once an advertising-dominated medium.

And he said that even more revenue lies on the horizon, as markets like China open more to American entertainment companies.

“They are going to start watching our television shows. Well, they’re already watching. But they’ll start paying for watching them,” Moonves said to laughter from the audience of business, »

Weekly Ratings: Jenner Interview, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Shocker Power ABC

29 April 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC had a strong start to the May sweep last week, winning Thursday, Friday and Sunday in the key young-adults demo and rolling up its best average for any non-Oscars frame since November.

The network had the week’s two most talked-about programs in Thursday’s surprise death of Patrick Dempsey’s character Derek on “Grey’s Anatomy” and the next night’s Diane Sawyer “20/20″ interview with Bruce Jenner.

Bruce Jenner: The Interview” (5.2 rating/18 share in adults 18-49, 17.10 million viewers overall) drew the best ratings for a Friday edition of “20/20″ since March 2000, when Barbara Walters interviewed the parents of JonBenet Ramsey.  And no non-sports broadcast on any network has drawn a larger Friday audience since NBC’s “Law & Order: Svu” in May 2002.

It was the week’s No. 1 program as well as ABC’s top primetime program of the season outside of the Oscars.

Overall, ABC led in adults »

The Big Bang Theory season 8 episode 22 review: The Graduation Transmission

28 April 2015 3:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could it be? Finally, a decent Raj episode of The Big Bang Theory? Here's our review of The Graduation Transmission...

This review contains spoilers.

8.22 The Graduation Transmission

As bad and as badly treated as all of the characters on The Big Bang Theory are, Raj has more often than not come out the worse. He's the butt of the jokes, the target for slightly over-the-line racial humour and jokes about his sexuality, and he's the odd one out without an on-screen girlfriend.

The writers have done some strange things with the character over the years, rarely settling on one set of characteristics as with the others, and he hasn't evolved quite as well as the other three, either. This week, depending on how you see it, may have been one of Raj's best episodes in ages.

This series has become one about unpleasant people stuck in the confines of their own arrested development. »
