Here's the eighth Wednesday of Spring 2013, the last night before May Sweeps starts, compared to the Spring 2013 averages for new episodes of the regularly scheduled show:

Looking at this last Wednesday of the Spring 2013 season with May Sweeps to start tonight, there is little about the ratings to focus on.


"American Idol"  last year pulled 4.6/13 - 16.48 compared to this year's 3.2/ 9 - 12.18, so it was down about 30%. On the other hand "Survivor" was up since last year it pulled 2.6/8 - 9.53 compared to this year's 2.7/8 -  9.83. While CBS seems to have a reliable audience, Fox needs to worry about appealing to an audience that is limited by what I call the "squirrel" factor:



The only other rating of note is ABC's "How To Live With Your Parents" which in its fourth week is down to half its premier demo.
