Ratings: Bad Judge, A to Z Return Way Down; Big Bang Rerun Tops Quiet Night

A to Z Cancelled

NBC’s Bad Judge and A to Z resumed their one-and-done runs on Thursday night with slashed numbers.

Bad Judge returned to 2.1 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating, plunging 45 and 55 percent from its last outing. Similarly, A to Z (1.3 mil/0.4) dropped 48 and 50 percent.

Opening the Peacock’s night, The Biggest Loser (3.5 mil/0.9) slipped 12 percent in audience while steady in the demo.

Broadcast TV’s only other original offering, ABC’s The Taste (2.7 mil/0.7), dipped 13 percent and a tenth.

A Big Bang Theory rerun dominated the repeat-laden night in both total audience (with 8.1 million viewers) and in the demo (scoring a 1.7 rating).

    A to Z really breaks my heart. Sad world for rom-coms.

    I personally have been taking advantage of a Christmas gift (Roku stick) and a free trial of Netflix…last weekend was Salem, yesterday was the first season of OINTB and I am just waiting out when it would be best to duck out of work so I can pick up season 2 and also, well, get some cleaning done in my apartment. I put Christmas away yesterday too and, eek, my apartment is actually a mess.

    ESPN airing the college playoff last night is the real winner. I’m sure those ratings were quite high.

    Who assumes that new episodes of something are going to be airing on New Years Day??? I had no idea there’d be anything on yesterday at all so I just watched a movie. Poor A to Z.

      Both shows are dead anyway, NBC are just burning off the episodes at this point, so when it airs doesn’t matter much.

    I realize I’m part of a very small minority but I will miss Bad Judge, Kate Walsh was perfect in the part! No disrespect Ms. Walsh but you play the wild girl parts great.

      I LOVE it and I’m crushed it’s being cancelled but kind of understand because a lot of the jokes are very specific and probably things only people who work at a courthouse would find funny. Like me.

      It should be mentioned that this show brought us the glorious return of Chandler Massey

        I don’t know how to like your comment or if it possible to do it, so here, I liked your comment :) And yes! Much-missed Chandler Massey returned to our TVs, as charming and gorgeous as always.

    I didn’t even know they were on. Obviously NBC doesn’t care where or when they burn these off. Who schedules a return on a holiday? Morons, that’s who!

    • NJMark says:

      In this case, it was smart programming. The shows have already been cancelled, hence burning episodes off during what would be a low-viewership night anyway.

    Gee, let’s see. We’ll take two already canceled shows and put them on New Year’s Day, against college football, and see if there are any ratings. No promos, no viewers NBComcast.
