TOMAmeter March 24 – March 30: How I Met Your TOMAmeter!

CBS’ immensely popular How I Met Your Mother is wrapping up its series which enjoyed a lengthy run on the air that spanned nearly a decade. How I Met Your Mother moved up from #14 to #9 and looks to improve on that landing spot as the program came to a close on Monday, March 31.

Another CBS program drawing attention this past week was The Good Wife. A shocking twist left people buzzing and helped the program bump its way into the Top 20, landing at #15.

The madness continues as mentions of March Madness/NCAA Basketball Tournament jumped up 5 places to #14. Will buzz around March Madness/NCAA Basketball Tournament continue to bust the TOMAmeter rankings?

The TOMAmeter Top 20 said goodbye to a few popular programs this week as A&E’s Duck Dynasty and Netflix’s House of Cards fell just below the cutoff. Will we hear from these programs again in the coming weeks?

Once again, ABC and CBS shared the most programs inside the Top 20 this week with 5 programs apiece. Just behind them was NBC which had a respectable 3 programs within the Top 20.

New to our Top 20 this week were: CBS’ The Good Wife (#15), A&E’s Bates Motel (#17) and ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars (#19)

Falling out of our Top 20 this week were: A&E’s Duck Dynasty (previously #11), Netflix’s House of Cards (previously #16) and CBS’ CSI (previously #18)
