The Charts: Not Much Activity on the Charts as the Season Wraps Up

By | May 6, 2015

I last week’s chart tally, Agents of SHIELD and Gotham both made it into the Top 25 for the broadcast networks based on the ratings in the 18-49 demographic.  But the latest chart numbers show that both fell out for the week of April 27th to May 3rd and there was not much more activity to report.  Game of Thrones was at Number 2 on the cable charts, taking second to the NFL draft for the week.  That show held steady on the Nielsen Twitter Ratings Top 10 and Once Upon A Time and Person of Interest made their usual appearances (when running a new episode).  No Live+3 numbers were released and I mentioned in the last column that General Sentiment has bowed out of tracking the social network activity around television broadcasts, so the data is pretty slim.  I expect things to pick up over the next couple of weeks with all the season finales on the way, though.

Here is the full look at chart activity for genre shows for the week of April 27th thru May 3rd:
