    Save Me retained its Nielsen audience from the premiere pretty much, though still dreadful numbers, at least what few viewers it has, likes it lol

  • John A

    Im sure NBC are happy with Save me as its just burn off anyway. GO BBT 2.3 and nearly 10 Million. Just great for a repeat.

    Pretty big decline for NBA from last year’s 6.9 rating. Hopefully ABC can get 7 games this year, instead of ending after I believe 5 last year.

    Damnit Spurs! Game 1 dropped by 2 million viewers and 1.2 in the demo from last year. These numbers are still good but the Spurs are just a buzz kill. Well, at least it wasn’t Pacers/Spurs. We would be looking at 10 million.

    Not a single show got a 1.0 on NBC. Just sad… Parks, however, keeps building on its Office lead-in. That’s interesting.

    Go Hell’s Kitchen! It’s my guilty pleasure. ;)

  • kbmv

    It’s wierd how this game didn’t adjust up as much as in the past.

  • Mi

    Interesting B&tB’s repeat had more viewers than TVD’s. Arrow finished this week as the only CW show pulling over 0.3 for a repeat.

    God knows why Nielsen viewers don’t like Hannibal, it has a solid cast, one of the best on TV even. Perhaps it’s too dark for some?

    They should consider giving Chef Ramsey a spot on American Idol’s judging panel next season. Lol!

  • DenverDean

    The NBA Final ratings are no surprise – the Spurs are buzz kills, but the Heat aren’t the biggest draw either. Compare to Lakers or Celtics. I have zero interest in LeBron.

    Lol imagine. He’l be like, your song is beeping raw, raw raw rawrrr(Typical Hells Kitchen Ramsay style smackdown lol).

    Game 1 is down from last 2 years but a tiny bit better than 14.1 for game 1 of 2010(Lakers vs Celtics). The ratings will be higher than last 2 years if it goes 7.

  • ya


    Dude, the ratings with the Heat in it the past 3 seasons have done better than Lakers vs Celtics in 2010. The reason that ended at 18 million avg was because of game 7 which got 28 million. That bumped the avg way up. If you compare last years 5 games vs the first 5 games between Lakers vs Celtics, it’s no contest. Last years Heat/Thunder ratings way higher.

    That Beauty and the Beast repeat rating doesn’t look bad at all.

  • yoyo

    Isn’t that supposed to be a 2.1 demo for Jimmy Kimmel Live? Or was it a mistake in the preliminary rating?

  • SP

    Hannibal makes up for its low ratings when the DVR Live ratings come out.

    It’s always on top of the list for biggest percentage increase.

  • platypus Perry

    Nevermind I see why JKL is 1.2 wow what a drop of 2 million viewers..

    Poor Hannibal, it has a good cast and is a good show. The most recent dvr list took it up to a 2.1, but it was such a disappointment to see Hannibal only score a 1.1 out of a office finale that scored bigger than normal ratings as a Direct leadin.
