This Saturday Night Prime Changes Again

Posted: 05/01/2012 07:34:49 PM
Air Date: 05/05/2012 Saturday 
Start Time: 09:00:00 PM [ET]
Show Name: THE VOICE
Duration: 01:59:30
Type: New Booking
Message: THE VOICE is booked.

And with that great lead-in from the Finale of Ford Escape Routes, I'm sure a rerun of The Voice will do better than another new episode of the critically acclaimed and secret ratings producer The Firm, right?

Update: Here's the first net posting of this change I found elsewhere. 

Monday morning update:

Here's what the website TVByTheNumbers reports:

Broadcast primetime ratings for Saturday, May 5, 2012:

9:00 CBS Person Of Interest - R 0.8/3 5.71

ABC Hancock(9-11PM) 0.8/3 2.82

NBC The Voice - R (9-11PM) 0.5/2 1.97

Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2012 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

Ford's Escape Routes finale had a 0.3 HH Rating, earning the lowest ratings of the night by any major network. If you've been reading this blog, you didn't sell that paid programming block to anyone expecting any real local demo delivery.

Also, I see some local TV stations bailed on this re-run and ran local movies instead.  NBC, when your moves cause local stations to preempt your Sweeps programming, something is very wrong.  Please see sick peacock above.
