Elementary Season 4 Ratings

Ratings: Elementary, Game Night Only Shows to Hold Steady on Easter

Eight of 10 broadcast programs not surprisingly found coal in their basket this Easter, facing the cruel quadfecta of depressed holiday viewing, Daylight Savings Time, The Walking Dead and late-round March Madness action. #GoOrange

NBC’s Little Big Shots dominated with 10.3 million total viewers and a 1.9 demo rating — even while dropping 23 and 27 percent week-to-week. Carmichael Show (4.7 mil/1.0) in turn slipped 6 percent and three tenths, while Crowded (3.6 mil/0.8) lost two tenths.

Closing NBC’s night, Hollywood Game Night (2.8 mil/0.7) was steady.

Over on ABC, Once Upon a Time (3.47 mil/1.0), The Family (2.7 mil/0.6) and Quantico (3.34 mil/0.9) all ticked down to new series lows.

CBS’ Madam Secretary (8.4 mil/1.0) and The Good Wife (7.5 mil/0.9) both ticked down in audience and in the demo, while the recently renewed Elementary (5.2 mil/0.8) held onto last week’s Sunday debut numbers/series low.

Fox’s Grease: Live rebroadcast did 1.5 mil and a 0.4.

    Good heavens ABC. Ouch.

    You see, this is what happens when you air new episodes on a holiday. This has to stop. Just air repeats.

  3. dan says:

    I wonder if ABC regrets renewing Quantico already. They should’ve waited for the end of the season to see how the rest of the episodes do. Show is now below a 1.0 in the demo. That can’t be welcome news in the offices of ABC. I assume the DVR ratings must be decent, otherwise ABC should’ve axed this show.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      QUANTICO this season is averaging +87% audience, +107% demo with Live+7 DVR playback, or 9.2 million viewers and a 2.9 rating (making it TV’s No. 8 drama).

  4. Mr. Tran K says:

    With Elementary already renewed, CBS better move the series back to Thursdays next season once football is done. As for HGN, don’t know if it’s going to get a renewal by NBC.

  5. Penny says:

    I don’t think Once would have done any better if it wasn’t Easter. Season 5 has been a huge let down with the Dark Swan storyline and now headed to the Underworld for Hook.

    The show has lost its spark. Not surprising it’s getting lower views

    • anon says:

      Strangely enough, it seems like everything there’s a Hook centric, the ratings are low. Wonder why that is? And no, it’s not just the holidays so don’t use that CS fans. But I do agree that the show lost it’s spark a long time ago.

    lol and everybodys complaining about castles ratings yet it’s beating almost all abc renewed shows

  7. kmw says:

    Why did ABC and CBS and even NBC air anything new last night. I am actually surprised OUAT didn’t go fractional. Ouch to all those numbers

  8. ninamags says:

    That’s what you get, ABC, for not airing The Ten Commandments on Sunday, like you have for decades.

    You know that it was Daylight Savings time in EUROPE right? We’ve had it for a couple of Sundays. Just saying.

  10. Citygirl says:

    I checked first to see if there wee any sporting events on CBS during the day before I set my DVR of Madam Secretary. Was surprised that there were none!! It was nice to actually have the show start at it’s regular time. I think people are losing interest in The Good Wife. It’s almost predictable how it will end. The episode was so-so. I still believe Alicia and Peter still love each other and she WILL stay by his side. Her thing with Jason is just that – a “thing”. He is smart to run away from her. But will stay with her for now because of the easy sex she is offering. It seems she is NOT the kind of woman he wants permanently. It’s obvious it bothers him that she is cheating on Peter regardless of the state of their marriage. She’ll cheat on him, too.

    So everyone did badly; blame it on the Easter Bunny.
