TOMAmeter May 19 – May 25: CBS Wins the Week

Two newcomers to the TOMAmeter this week helped boost CBS to become the most represented network in the Top 20. The hit of last summer Under the Dome jumped into the Top 20 landing at #11 this week, while Survivor reemerged at #15 after the season finale this past week.

Champions were crowned on both singing competitions last week and mentions of the programs were strong. NBC’s The Voice moved up two spots to #6 and FOX’s American Idol increased three places to #7, hitting what will most likely be their peak in these rankings.

ABC had a couple of programs lose staying power in our Top 20 after their finales as Once Upon a Time fell eight places to #14 and Grey’s Anatomy fell nine spots to #18. Other notable programs on the network like Scandal and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. dropped completely out of the Top 20 this week.

Slipping out of the Top 20 after only one week was NBC’s miniseries Rosemary’s Baby.

As previously mentioned, CBS was the most represented network this week with six programs, besting ABC which had four, FOX with three and NBC with 2 programs.

New programs in our Top 20: CBS’ Under the Dome (#11) and Survivor (#15), CW’s Supernatural (#17) and AMC’s Breaking Bad (#19).

Falling out of our Top 20 this week: NBC’s The Blacklist (previously #7), NBC’s Rosemary’s Baby (previously #14) and ABC’s Scandal (previously #16) and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (PREVIOUSLY #18).
