    Did “Elementary” surpass “Scandal” in the demo?

    Wow, so more people DVR’d “The Big Bang Theory” than watched “Community.” Maybe they shouldn’t have aired their Halloween episode on Valentine’s Day.

    Did “Elementary” surpass “Scandal” in the demo?

    No, Elementary had a 2.2 L+SD adults 18–49 rating on 01/31/13, and Scandal had a 2.7 L+SD adults 18–49 rating on that same night. With the L+7 adults 18–49 lifts, Elementary added 1.4 points, and Scandal added 1.1 points.


    Scandal, 01/31/13, L+7 adults 18–49 Total: 3.8
    Elementary, 01/31/13, L+7 adults 18–49 Total: 3.6

    Elementary had a 2.3 last Thursday not a 2.2.

    And in other news Elementary will lose its cushy Thur slot & move to Sundays next season. This show has to be a ratings disappointment for CBS.

    Michael, Community had yet to premiere when this week’s L7 ratings were tallied. Its Live plus 7 results for the week of the premiere will be available in a week, and the results from the last episode with DVR use factored in will be available in two weeks. Your comparison is not valid for the week listed here.

    I guess if you’re the only thing on TV that day and that time then you’re bound to have great ratings. The other networks could put a good show up against it and the ratings for Elementary would go down. This show is so boring, The actors have no bang between them. Just a dull show.

  • Samantha

    Are you kidding me about the actors having no “bang” between them?? They have so much chemistry! It’s what makes the show. I watch only three network shows and Elementary is my favorite.
