TOMAmeter March 31 – April 6: The End of a Legen…dary Era

Whether you liked the finale or not, the story of Ted and Tracy has come to a conclusion, bumping CBS’ How I Met Your Mother up 6 places from #9 into the Top 3. AMC’s The Walking Dead and HBO’s Game of Thrones reprised their role as #1 and #2, proving to be just strong enough to hold off an ending viewers waited 208 episodes to see.

Another broadcast program preforming well was NBC’s The Blacklist which saw the largest increase among the shows already in the Top 20 (up from #20 to #10). The sporadic scheduling of episodes has caused the program to fluctuate in the Top 20 but it has consistently been in the rankings since the shows inception. With another mini hiatus already underway, expect mentions of this program to decrease before the fall breakout hit wraps up its first season in May.

FOX’s The Following is already winding down to its season finale and mentions of the program were strong enough to move it back into the Top 20 settling at #16. How high can the show go with only 2 weeks left remaining for season 2?
