TOMAmeter March 9 – 15: Big Week for The Blacklist

NBC’s The Blacklist made an impressive jump of five places in our rankings this week and is now the 5th most mentioned program. After a brief slip last week, The Blacklist is now back in familiar territory at #5. With the exception of last week, The Blacklist has remained high on our list since its episode following the Super Bowl back in the beginning of February.

CW’s The Flash (#17) and Arrow (#20) are back in our Top 20 after missing the cut this past week. With more villains and crossovers planned for the back half of their respective seasons, look for these two programs to remain in the rankings for future weeks to come.

ABC’s Scandal took a bit of a tumble in the rankings. Last week’s #6 most mentioned program fell by six places down to #12 this week. Scandal just snuck ahead of network mate Grey’s Anatomy which returned to our rankings at #13 after spending one week outside the Top 20.

Just missing the cut after the premiere of its third season was A&E’s Bates Motel. ABC’s Dancing with the Stars also finished outside the Top 20 but with the return to the air this past Monday, look for Dancing with the Stars to cha cha its way into next week’s rankings.

Once again, CBS was the most represented network with five of the most mentioned programs, while ABC followed with four and FOX rounded out the Top 3 with three programs.

New programs in our Top 20: ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy (#13), CW’s The Flash (#17) and Arrow (#20).

No longer in our Top 20 this week: NBC’s Saturday Night Live (previously #11), ABC’s Modern Family (previously #14) and How to Get Away with Murder (previously #17).
