    L+3: LAST WEEK’S “SHADES OF BLUE” TIED FOR THAT NIGHT’S STRONGEST L+3 LIFT ON THE BIG 4 IN 18-49 RATING

    Sunday Primetime Results:

    NBC ties for the Sunday win in 18-49 among the Big 4 nets with timeslot victories at 8 and 9 p.m. for “Little Big Shots” and “Chicago Justice.”

    “Little Big Shots” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 7.8 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET):
    · Is the #1 show of the night in adults 18-49 on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox.
    · Wins the timeslot in adults 18-49 among those nets and ranks #1 or tied for #1 among the Big 4 in adults, men and women 18-49; adults, men and women 25-54; and adults and men 18-34.
    · On a night of high-rated NBA Playoff competition on TNT, builds on its lead-in by +140% in 18-49 (1.2 vs. 0.5) and +4.0 million persons or +104% in total viewers (7.8 million vs. 3.8 million).
    · Will add significant viewership via time-shifting and VOD – the prior week’s “LBS” increased by +11% in 18-49 (1.48 to 1.64) and +756,000 viewers overall (8.9 million to 9.6 million) going from L+SD to L+3 ratings

    “Chicago Justice” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 5.3 million viewers overall from 9-10 p.m. ET):

    · Is close to rounding up to a 0.8 in these prelim fast-affiliate ratings (currently reporting a 0.743).
    · A 0.8 would equal the highest “Shades” 18-49 rating since March 12 (0.9).
    · On a night of high-rated NBA Playoff competition on TNT and an ABC special on Princess Diana, is currently running within 0.1 of last-week’s rating in adults 18-49 (0.7 vs. 0.8) and is retaining 91% week to week in total viewers (4.105 million vs. 4.528 million).

  3. With upfronts next week, the renewals and cancellations should be coming soon. OUAT should end this year.

  4. What last night has shown us is that if ABC puts something half way decent on, they can still win Sundays. No reason to keep low rated stuff like OUAT, which is losing its main character, and Quantico, which would presumably move here if they kept it.

      • It’s an internal politics renewal and Dungey renewed 13 flops in one day last year…

    • You right of course. 🙂

      Channing Dungey sabotaged ABC’s lineup by renewing all those flops. She richly deserve the bonus she undoubtedly will get for a great season… 🙁

      • Channing’s not the problem. She inherited a development slate picked by Paul Lee. She actually dumped quite a few flops last year and shows that clearly needed to end (Nashville, Castle). Yes she brought back SHIELD and OUAT but both make Disney lots of cash. Renewing those aging dramas was a safer bet than picking up more of the likes of Time After Time, Conviction, and Notorious. Let’s judge her after this season’s shows get on the air. ABC’s development slate sounds more promising this year. My main concern is how many shows Idol and Roseanne replace. Reports are saying Last Man Standing is a goner. If that ends but OUAT and Shield continue, it will be bad.

        • Good to read you mushu. 🙂

          I don’t see who else to blame. She accepted the responsibility publicly. Or perhaps she is a powerless figurehead and Bob Iger is to blame (he certainly is responsible for hiring her and Paul Lee that led the implosion of ABC…)

          She renewed 13 flops all at once last season. This season was a disaster as the flops kept flopping. I don’t see who else to blame…

          Shield and OUAT don’t make Disney “tons of cash”. Flops don’t make cash for anyone. They do cost money that they’ll never see again.

          If she hated the Paul Lee shows she could have picked new ones. Only the current breed of executives think it takes years to develop a good TV show (and they don’t anyway!)

          Anyone with a brain and a bit of knowledge could have dug up from the archives of good creators a bunch of interesting shows. She didn’t do that. And she didn’t this season either. She went back to the same dry well of talentless insiders…

          I mean bringing back Idol and Roseanne is just ludicrously uncreative and the sign of someone only interested in keeping her big fat salary for another 3 more months…

          Now let me tell you what I REALLY think of her… 😉

          I’ll add she’s no worse than her colleagues, but that’s no compliment.

    • Hard to believe Mark Pedowitz knows what “cancel” means any longer… 😉
