No new show took a bigger fall this week than Bad Judge. Episode four garnered 4.39 million viewers and 1.0 A18-49, down two more tenths from last week (and it’s biggest week-to-week drop yet). Retention from The Biggest Loser was a solid 93 percent among total viewers and 83 percent in the demo. As I have said numerous times already though, Bad Judge is simply a timeslot holder until The Blacklist comes to the night. Same goes for A to Z.
Speaking of which, A to Z dipped another tenth from last week to 3.13 million viewers and 0.9 A18-49. Nothing more really can be said here.
FOX is breathing a small sigh of relief this morning. Major dud Gracepoint failed to drop to a new low, despite its Bones lead in being a repeat. The latest episode notched 3.52 million viewers and 0.8 A18-49, completely even with last week. Six episodes left FOX. Just keep telling yourself!
Then there was FINALLY some good news for a new show on the night. ABC’s breakout drama, How to Get Away with Murder jumped from last weeks low to 9.97 million viewers and 3.0 A18-49. Compared to last week, Murder was up two tenths – pretty impressive. As has been the case for most of the season, How to Get Away with Murder held 100 percent of Scandal‘s demographic performance, and impressive 99.89 percent of the total audience. Sorry you only get 15 episodes, ABC.
