U2 abc - E is for Edge

“When you walk past a managed forest you see a mass of trees. Then at a certain point you look again and realize that they are all in perfect rows. Clarity. Clarity of vision. What you’ve been looking at the wrong way and not seeing at all. You labor, you sweat to see what you couldn’t have seen from that other perspective.”

So Scandal was down to 9.15 mln viewers vs 9.99 last week, and down a tenth in 18-49, ABC got pummeled by TBBT at 8 pm (never going to even get close to Big Bang Theory) and HTGAWM plunged 3 tenths and 1.3 mln viewers to 8.5 mln.

ABC in preliminaries barely edged CBS in 18-49 (2.5 vs 2.4) but was way behind in overall viewers (8 mln vs 10.7 mln). Considering that in the 25-54 demo that is the one that ACTUALLY matters and the one things are moving toward, cause 18-49 is becoming quite simply a joke (the vast majority of people between 18 and 25 do NOT have money to spend anymore) and that CBS destroys ABC in that demo, I think we all get the picture. That of course the ratings bloggers on Twitter completely refuse to acknowledge… always behaving as ABC wins nights when truth is so far? They don’t win a SINGLE night in the week. And by not winning I mean at best arriving a very distant second, and literally being destroyed on Sundays and Tuesdays, ending last.

Now if the 18-49 data is confirmed in the finals, last night would be their FIRST actual night win in the season, but only in that demo, cause they lost in overall viewers. This happened because Scandal shed almost 900k viewers and HTGAWM shed 1.3 mln and a 0.3 in the demo.

I’m curious to see what will happen come February when NBC – as opposed to being NO competition right now – will have the strongest lineup with “The Blacklist” at 9 pm and new spy thriller “Allegiance"  at 10 pm, from the producers of Bourne Ultimatum and Homeland. That’s gonna be interesting.
