Cable Ratings: The Closer Sinks! Men Of a Certain Age Drops

I said SINKS not stinks.  I enjoyed last night's episode of The Closer, but not nearly as many people are watching as usually watch.  Is it the staggered schedule?  The holidays?  CBS being beasts on Monday at 9pm?  Something else?   My guess: people think of The Closer as a summer show mostly.  It's not summer.

It's official, I'm not making anything at all out of Men Of a Certain Age's 19% post-premiere drop, considering that The Closer was down almost 12%.  If that's not a series low for The Closer, I'm pretty sure its among the lowest episode since the early days of the show, and I'm pretty sure it's the lowest since we started this blog over 2 years ago.

Men again edged The Closer out in adults 18-49, just like last week.  Neither is a Sons Of Anarchy (or a Keeping Up With the Kardashians for that matter!), last night, outside of football WWE Raw held the cable 18-49 crown.
