TOMAmeter May 12 – May 18: NBC’s Demon Seed Makes its Big Debut

NBC’s remake of the classic psychological thriller, Rosemary’s Baby, made a strong debut at #14 in this week’s TOMAmeter. One has to wonder if the two night miniseries would sell its soul to remain in the Top 20.

With its second season premiere right around the corner, mentions of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black were strong enough to help the program return to the Top 20 to take the final spot.

ABC’s Resurrection was steadily making its way down our rankings since its finale and finally sees itself on the outside looking in. Dancing with the Stars however, had a strong week, moving up five places to #12.

Slowly climbing its way up the rankings is last year’s surprise hit, CBSUnder the Dome. In 2013, the gripping drama spent several weeks at #1 after overthrowing Game of Thrones, so keep an eye out to see if that will be the case again this summer.

Once again, ABC dominated the Top 20 with another six program performance, while both NBC and CBS had four programs a piece. FOX was just behind with three of the 20 most mentioned shows this week.

New programs in our Top 20: NBC’s Rosemary’s Baby (#14), FOX’s Family Guy (#17), ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (#18) and Netflix’s Orange is the New Black.

Falling out of our Top 20 this week: ABC’s Resurrection (previously #13), CW’s Supernatural (previously #14), CBS’ Survivor (previously #18) and A&E’s Duck Dynasty (previously #19).
