    Will NBC fall below 1.0 anytime soon, it looks like.

    Slow week, ABC did well with Oscars.

    On Sunday, The Celebrity Apprentice is back. Then Grimm returns the week after that. The Voice and Revolution return with the premiere of Ready to Love two weeks after that, so I don’t think we will see NBC fall below a 1.0.

    ABC had a great week!

    Monday: #1 in AD18–49 (season highs for The Bachelor and Castle)
    Tuesday: #2 in AD18–49 (The Taste up, The Bachelor solid, Body of Proof flopped though)
    Wednesday: #3 in AD18–49 (8-9 up double digits, Modern Family back at 4.0, Suburgatory solid, Oscar special flopped though)
    Thursday: #4 in AD18–49 (Last Resort flopped but Grey’s Anatomy up double digits to qualify as the #1 drama, Scandal steady at high level)
    Friday: #1 in AD18–49 (8-9 hanging on, Shark Tank wins almost at 2.0, 20/20 ties for 10pm victory)
    Saturday: #1 in AD18–49 (
    Dreamgirls does decent)
    Sunday: #1 in AD18–49 (Academy Awards up double digits to multi-year high)

    So overall, they won 4/7 nights of the week and had the highest overall average! Pretty good for ABC.

    I don’t get why ABC has so much 8pm Thurs trouble. Last Resort was good and I really like Zero Hour but no one seems to agree with me. I guess the slot is just to cluttered
