TOMAmeter February 23 – March 1: Frank Underwood Returns to the TOMAmeter

A popular streaming service drama returned to Netflix last week and binge watcher or not, mentions of House of Cards proved to be strong. The program debuts at #10 this week which is an improvement on last season’s premiere when it placed at #18.

ABC’s The Oscars/Academy Awards continued to have a strong showing in the Top 20 by moving up one spot to #3 this week. This is the second highest performance in The Oscars/Academy Awards history, with the exception of last year’s show which placed at #2 in the week following its air date.

NBC’s The Voice spun its chair to find that they came in at #11 in this week’s TOMAmeter. Adam, Blake and the gang returned for another season last week and should remain in our Top 20 for weeks to come.

CW’s The Flash fell four places to #16 after taking a short break following an episode two weeks ago. At #16, this is the program’s lowest place in the Top 20 in its brief existence.

A program that has existed for quite some time has possibly bid its final farewell to our Top 20 rankings. After CBSTwo and a Half Men reemerged in the rankings following its series finale last week, mentions of the program were not strong enough to make this list this week.

Despite the loss of Fresh Off the Boat in the Top 20 this week, ABC picked up two new entries while CBS saw two programs fall out of the rankings. With such an occurrence, ABC has overtaken the top spot as the most represented network with six programs this week beating out CBS which had four.

New programs in our Top 20: Netflix’s House of Cards (#10), NBC’s The Voice (#11), ABC’s Modern Family (#17) and Once Upon a Time (#18).

No longer in our Top 20 this week: CBS’ The Grammys (previously #17) and Two and a Half Men (previously #18), ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat (previously #19) and CW’s Supernatural (previously #20).
