    Wheres Mondays finals or did I missed it??

  • JR

    Where are Monday’s final ratings hiding? :)

    DWTS is not the monsterit once was, but almost 17m viewers- as little as that may mean- is still impresive. It will have its spring cycle, but if it’s going to continue, ABC may want to makie it a one-cycle run per season.

    NCIS is incredible !

  • darius

    Ncis came back this week in the ratings war.

  • CrimTV

    Lol bit weird that Tuesday finals are out before Mondays! Glad NBC didnt adjust down!

  • Matt

    Where are Mondays

  • Nope

    great for HOPE

  • eridapo

    It figures that the shows without DWTS competition saw an increase. The shift of DWTS to a later hour definitely benefited NCIS.

    Now… Where are those Monday Finals? If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would bet that Nielsen itself can not believe the rise for all the shows across the board (especially those Fox numbers). Come on Bones goes up nearly a million viewers on an Episode the fandom itself calls the worst in the series (excepting the Hannah episodes), and the Mob Doctor out of nowhere discovers 33% more viewers.

    People were saying the poor match up in the MNF game was due to the rise, but the ratings for the MNF game were not at as dire as everyone said they were. It still scored a 4+ in demo and 10+ million viewers.

    End of conspiracy theory….

    Lol, this is the first time I’ve ever seen Raising Hope adjust up! Glad to see it match a season high. It’s interesting that is performing better then The Mindy Project without The New Girl lead-in, which likely means bad things for The Mindy Project.

  • domdh95

    Wish HoD would adjust up! The episode was amazing!!

  • haney

    Really interested in Mondays final. Hmmm..maybe it really was screwed up so they are still withholding it??

  • forg

    I hope Raising Hope can crack 2.0 soon. Ben & Kate is pulling New Girl down

  • jake

    New Girl is not longer a hit, I don’t see it lasting more than 4 seasons, unless it gets a new and strong lead in like american idol or something new that turns out a hit on Fox, which is very unlikely.

    @ eridapo
    Mob Doctor beat its ratings with DWR. Last time Mob Doctor with DWR was 1.1. So new people start watching it at least 0.1 in demo if no one watcg it in DWR.

  • Pepper

    NCIS is a ratings beast, even after all this time!

    Interesting comment by Fox’s Kevin Reilly during a state of the media luncheon

    Source… Deadline

    “We’re looking too myopically at the business,” he said, adding that networks “are too obsessed with our competition with each other and not the consumer.” He agreed with the other panelists that there are “radical shifts in consumer behavior and how they are watching,” adding that “on any given night we’re speaking to only 30% of the audience.”

    It is 2012, and finally someone notices that consumer behavior is changing. It normally takes a couple years before consumers learn to use and to adapt to technology, and it seems that adaptation, per some network exec, has finally taken place. Will this admission lead to different behaviors from advertisers and Net. execs?

    The Monday and Tuesday Nationals ended up being released at the exact same time today.Both posts are now up. Thus ends Nielsen’s lengthy Thanksgiving hangover — though I can’t guarantee that the late night and daytime ratings will be released on time this week.

    @ Petar Ivanov

    I don’t think so… People do not change radically after establishing a routine. The 8PM Monday slot was no different than it was the whole of November, but somehow the ratings took a magical jump. To explain such a change, you ask what factors change that were not present in previous observations. People pointed to the MNF game as a possible explanation, but the Game started at 8:30PM like it has done since the season started so how could it affect the first half hour of the 8PM slot. Something else had to have happen.

    I could see how the absence of DWTS at 9PM would have benefited other shows in the slot, but those 8PM numbers are very hard to explain.

    @ Sara Bibel

    Jeez.. Thanks Sara.

    You just ruined my attempt to start a conspiracy discussion… LOL

    What fans think is irrelevant. They don’t speak for the general audience. Moreover, they didn’t know beforehand how the episode would have been.
