On Twitter, a hashtag has sprung up among morning ratings reporters when looking at the broadcast network numbers this season: #EndTimes. Last night was no exception to the doom and gloom, with no less than nine shows tying or hitting new season or series lows among adults 18-49. With the broadcast upfronts next week, executives more than ever before will have to tap dance when slinging their numbers to Madison Avenue.
Here’s the dirty nine: CBS’ Person of Interest; Fox’s Glee; ABC’s Agents of SHIELD, The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife; NBC’s The Voice, About a Boy, Growing Up Fisher; and The CW’s The Originals.
Biggest drop? Bubble show Trophy Wife, which should get word on whether its coming back for a second season by the end of the week. Smallest drop? NBC’s About a Boy, which has really weakened from its early performance where it was hovering above a 2.0. Biggest gain? The Mindy Project, already renewed, up 18 percent. Full chart:
