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.
