    Worry not. I would feel comfortable betting my life that it gets renewed.

    Once Upon a Time appears to be the rare show that wins both total viewers and the demos.

    The Good Wife is the exact opposite. Second most # of viewers, average age... just this side of deceased.

    Astro (or anyone else), you can click Quote on my message and see how I coded the table. The trick is to Copy the table from TVbythenumbers and paste it into Word (or some other word processing program) and format it properly, then copy that and paste it here. By going to a word processing program as an intermediate step, you get the tabs that then ensure that the table is properly aligned here. And sometimes it requires a little trial and error (I paste it, it doesn't quite line up, and then I fix the Word version and then repaste it.

    That sounds like a lot of work, unfortunately.
    But I, for one, appreciate y'all posting this stuff. I'm interested enough to read it here, but haven't ever really gone in search of the data. Thanks again, for sharing!!

    I like how the one puts them in rank order, and the other puts them in timeslots... can you guys both post? :up: :D

    HA!!

    Someone complained this weekend because I commented that he and my Mother watch all the same shows... I didn't call him out on his age, merely that he and she have very similar taste. :)
    I should clarify, they're both far this side of the deceased line... but, also both love shows like The Good Wife.

    You can keep making that arguement but it doesn't make it true. From TVBTN:

    THANK YOU, WT!! I've tried to make that same point a couple times in this thread already, but I guess steveknj has me on ignore or something, because he never seems to acknowledge it.

    This is a tangent -- but does this year's "May sweeps" end sooner than typical? I know it's not always all of May, or even always "approximately all of May".. but there was a season/series finale airdates article in the paper, and it sure seemed that a lot of big shows were having finales around May 15th.

    No, I fully understand WHY they do it. And I understand why they THINK this is the right strategy. IMO, I think they have lost touch with reality. So they are going to spend millions of dollars in advertising to go after a demo that's probably not coming back? The younger demos are no longer caring about live TV, and the line distinguishing OTA network TV vs. Cable is gone. The ratings prove this out. Often, in the ratings numbers for the 18-49 demo is completely different than overall ratings.

    From your post:

    I'm not ignoring you. And I said I get it. It's just a flawed strategy.

    You've asked about two different issues. First, May sweeps (all sweeps) begin on a Thursday and end on a Wednesday, four weeks later. So the beginning and ending dates of the sweeps period are dictated by the calendar. This year, May sweeps runs from April 26 -May 23.

    The other issue is the finale dates of individual shows. I posted a thread with all the season finale dates last week. For example, CBS' latest finales this year are Thursday, May 17, with many sooner than that. That's a decision made by the network and nobody knows all the reasons, but we can guess at some of them. The last few days of the season have several big events (the two-night finales of Dancing With The Stars, The Voice, and American Idol), and CBS probably doesn't want to compete with them. Other shows have to end early to accommodate longer than usual finales or finales that air in abnormal timeslots, e.g. The Amazing Race has a two-hour finale this Sunday, and then Survivor has a three-hour finale the following Sunday.

    Monday Night ratings. I will work on a c&p, using ddAZ's advice, but I'm swamped at work right now.

    Four of the top five shows are CBS' comedy block. And 5/7 encompass the entire CBS night. Amazing show of strength.

    One interesting thing to see from this chart is the Share number. HIMYM has less viewers and lower 18-49 numbers, but its % of households watching it is higher. Shows how viewership numbers build as the night goes on, especially during Spring when daylight gets longer.

    They are tied together, in a way - you would expect Thursday night shows to have their season finales on May 17, as May 24 is not in May Sweeps (which is also why American Idol, which normally runs Wednesday/Thursday, almost always has its final week on Tuesday/Wednesday, with So You Think You Can Dance premiering the following night).

    Related question: when does the "ratings season" end - Sunday 5/20, or Wednesday 5/23?

    Of course Thursday night shows will end on May 17, as that's the last Thursday of the season (and of sweeps). But it's odd that so many other shows end earlier than that, when they still have available timeslots left.

    The ratings season ends Wednesday, May 23. "Summer" season begins on Thursday, May 24.

    Here's a list of all season finale dates.

    I guess we can read the writing on the wall for NBC's Awake. The finale will be airing May 24th.
