NBC’s Awake was on the upside this Thursday — too little, too late, though? Sigh… — gaining 16 percent in audience (hitting 2.5 million viewers) and rising two tenths in the demo (to 0.9). That said, was Jason Isaacs right or was he right, about these last few episodes leaving you breathless? Wait ’til you see next week’s.
Time slot rival Scandal (6.5 mil/2.0) also ticked up, gaining a tenth in the demo while holding steady in audience.
But nothing much else to see here. Going hour by hour….
8 pm | American Idol (15.1 mil/3.9, flat week-to-week) was the night’s most watched program, while the Big Bang finale (13.3 mil/4.2, down 11 percent) led the demos. Missing (6.3 mil/1.1) dipped another tenth in the demo. Community was flat at 3.12 mil/1.4, while 30 Rock (3 mil/1.5) was up a tenth in the demo. The rollicking Vampire Diaries finale (2.5 mil/1.1) was down a smidgen.
9 pm | Person of Interest (12.7 mil/2.6) led the hour in total viewers, while Grey’s Anatomy (9.6 mil/3.4) was up a hair and topped the demos. Fox’s newly renewed Touch was steady at 7 mil/2.0. Both The Office and Parks and Rec were flat in their finales. CW bubble drama Secret Circle (1.24 mil/0.5) showed no movement with its season-ender.
10 pm | The Mentalist dipped a bit but dominated with 12.4 mil/2.4.
