Once again, an NBA playoff game won the night, and a Big Bang Theory rerun beat everything else on broadcast. FOX averaged 1.5 with the debuts of Take Me Out and The Choice. Saving Hope premiered to a dismal 0.7. Rock Center began its Thursday run with a typical 0.7. Duets continues to fall, but it moves to Wednesdays next week. Rookie Blue held fairly steady.

sources: spotted ratings and tv by the numbers


No Triple Crown this year. NBC can’t catch a break this Summer. The Stanley Cup Finals are a bust. Howard Stern hasn’t boosted the ratings of America’s Got Talent. Now the horse that won two of the Triple Crown races, I’ll Have Another, has been scratched from the third race because of a swollen tendon. There’s still the Olympics, which will lose money, but will hopefully promote the Fall lineup.

Programming Notes

Body of Proof is changing, in order to keep its budget tight.

The Teen Titans will return with a new series, next year on Cartoon Network.

Excuse of the Day

… ”Take Me Out” (1.3/5 in 18-49, 3.3 million viewers overall) and ”The Choice” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 4.2 million viewers overall) combined for a close second-place finish among the broadcasters in 18-49 while winning among the Big Four in adults 18-34.
