Thursday, October 25, 2012 ratings — New episodes: The Big Bang Theory, Last Resort, 30 Rock, The Vampire Diaries, Two and a Half Men, Up All Night, Person of Interest, Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, Beauty and the Beast, Parks and Recreation, Elementary, Scandal, and Rock Center with Brian Williams. Sports or specials: Game two of the World Series.
On CBS, The Big Bang Theory was the winner of the night once again with a 4.8 rating (0% change week-to-week) in the 18-49 demographic and 15.4 million total viewers. Two and a Half Men dropped 8% in the demo to a 3.7 rating with 12.9 million.
On ABC, there was bad news for Last Resort which drew a 1.3 rating (-19% week-to-week) and 6.4 million viewers. Could this be the first ABC show of the season to be cancelled?
At 9pm, The Office attracted a 2.1 rating (0% change) with 4.7 million. Parks and Recreation then drew a 1.9 rating (+19%) with 4.1 million. The night was capped with Rock Center with Brian Williams and a 1.3 rating (+44%) with 4.3 million.
*Note: the NFL game was simmulcast on NBC in Minneapolis so this probably artificially inflated NBC’s TV show numbers. They’ll likely fall in the finals.
On FOX, we had the second game of the World Series (San Francisco vs. Detroit) with a 2.9 rating and 10.2 million viewers.
What do you think? Do you think Last Resort will keep falling? Has Beauty and the Beast stabilized? What were you watching last night?
