TOMAmeter February 2 – 8: Big Leap for The Blacklist!

Mentions of NFL/Super Bowl were predictably down this week, but the big game still sits at #3 after taking the top spot last week. NBC’s The Blacklist moved up eight places to #2 sitting right behind AMC’s The Walking Dead which reclaimed #1 this week.

Beck and Sam Smith may have won a more than a few Grammys on Saturday night but the show itself was a winner in this week’s TOMAmeter. Mentions of the Grammy Awards were strong enough to propel the award show to #9 this week. The Grammy Awards came in at #12 during the premiere week of last year’s award show.

The highly anticipated spinoff of AMC’s Breaking Bad debuted on our televisions this past week and mentions of Better Call Saul were strong enough to earn the #17 spot in our rankings this week. ABC’s comedy Fresh Off the Boat also debuted this past week and the program preformed slightly better than Better Call Saul by debuting at #16. Fresh Off the Boat was previously not ranked in the Top 100 before this week, so the much buzzed about comedy shows tremendous momentum for what looks like a promising mid-season program.

CBS’ telecast of the Grammy Awards helped the network edge out ABC as the most represented network in our Top 20 this week. CBS’ scored five programs while ABC was second with four and Fox third with three programs this week.

New programs in our Top 20: CBS’ Grammy Awards (#9), ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat (#16) and AMC’s Better Call Saul (#17).

No longer in our Top 20 this week: FX’s American Horror Story (previously #18), ABC’s Marvel’s Agent Carter (previously #19) and AMC’s Breaking Bad (previously #20).
