TOMAmeter April 27 – May 3: Grey’s Anatomy Continues to Climb!

Building off of the shocking revelation from two episodes ago, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy swapped places with CBSNCIS to become the 4th most mentioned program this week. With two more episodes to go in the 11th season, look for Grey’s Anatomy to remain a strong performer in the Top 20.

CBS’ Criminal Minds and FOX’s Gotham each moved up six places to #8 and #10 respectively, but the biggest jump in the rankings belongs to NBC’s The Blacklist, which is up seven spots to #6 this week. This is the best ranking since the program came in at #5 back in March.

The buzz surrounding Netflix’s Daredevil is wearing off a bit. Last week’s 10th most mentioned program is down to #17 this week and is in danger of joining its fellow online program House of Cards in the rankings beyond the Top 20. This is the first time House of Cards missed the Top 20 since season 3 debuted in February.

Just missing out on the Top 20 was ABC’s Revenge which will be airing the series’ final episode on May 10th. With two more episodes to go, will the broadcast drama make one final appearance in the Top 20?

For the fifth straight week, ABC is the most represented network with five shows in the Top 20. CBS and NBC round out the top three ranking with four and three programs apiece.

New programs in our Top 20: NBC’s Law and Order (#18).

No longer in our Top 20 this week: Netflix’s House of Cards (previously #20).
