TOMAmeter March 3 – 9: And The Award Goes To ….

AMC’s The Walking Dead! The Oscars/Academy Awards made a strong push for #1, falling just short of the top spot, despite moving up from #4 last week. The rest of the Top 10 remained fairly unchanged except for one newcomer.

ABC’s Resurrection makes its debut in the Top 20 this week as build up to the premiere proved to be a strong one. The new program, which premiered this past Sunday, came in at #7.

Also new to the TOMAmeter this week were A&E’s Bates Motel (#12) which kicked off its second season this past week and HBO’s True Detective (#20) which comes to an end after an exhilarating freshman season.

Not preforming as well in our rankings this week were the Olympics (down 8 spots to #10) which is slowly phasing out of the Top 20 the further we get from the closing ceremony. NBC’s The Blacklist, also down 8 places to #18, is now on the bubble of missing out on the Top 20 for the first time since its premiere back in September.

New to our Top 20 this week were: ABC’s Resurrection (#7), A&E’s Bates Motel (#12), ABC’s Once Upon a Time (#15), CBS’ How I Met Your Mother (#16), CW’s Supernatural (#19) and HBO’s True Detective (#20)

Falling out of our Top 20 this week were: CBS’ Survivor (previously #15) and Elementary (previously #17), FOX’s The Following (previously #16), NBC’s Law and Order (previously #18) and History’s Vikings (previously #20)
