Ratings: GCB Steady, Apprentice Up, Game of Thrones Stays Strong, Client List Is Hot Stuff
A double-pump of the ABC freshman GCB performed as well as could be expected on a quiet Easter Sunday night.
The “special” first airing at 9 pm drew 5.25 million total viewers and a 1.7 rating, down some in the demo from the show’s most recent tally (5.22 mil/1.9), while the second helping (5.2 mil/1.9) was right on par with last Sunday’s numbers.
In the 8 o’clock hour, NBC bubble drama Harry’s Law made the most of ABC and Fox repeats by gaining 25 percent in the demo. Celebrity Apprentice (6.5 mil/2.0) in turn saw gains of 9 and 11 percent and hit five- and four-week highs.
CBS’ numbers are sufficiently scrambled by golf overrun, but at first blush it appears that the CSI: Miami season (?) finale was down, leading as it did out of a Good Wife rerun.
UPDATE: Over on the cable side of things, HBO’s Game of Thrones drew 3.8 million total viewers, almost matching its record-setting Season 2 opener, AMC’s The Killing (1.8 mil) was flat versus its own sophomore premiere and The Client List (2.8 million viewers) was Lifetime’s most-watched series debut since Drop Dead Diva circa 2009.
