TOMAmeter March 23 – 29: It’s All Good Man!

AMC’s Better Call Saul is building toward the end of its dramatic first season and mentions of the program show are growing! After falling out of the Top 20 last week, Better Call Saul reemerged as the eighth most mentioned program this week, the highest it has been in five weeks. With the finale just around the corner, look for the freshman drama to remain in the top half of the rankings.

ABC’s Scandal inches closer to the Top 5 after moving up three places to #6. CBS’s CSI and Criminal Minds also moved up three places to #7 and #15 respectively.

The road to the Final Four continues its journey as mentions of March Madness/NCAA Basketball Tournament shot up to #11 after placing at #14 last week. Mentions of the second week of March Madness were only strong enough to place the tournament at #14 at this time last year.

Slipping in the rankings this week were Netflix’s House of Cards which is down five places to #12, and FOX’s Gotham which just barely made the Top 20, finishing at #20. With decreases of seven and eight places respectively over the past two weeks, Gotham is in serious jeopardy of missing the Top 20 for the first time since July of 2014.

CBS and ABC tied as the most represented networks with four programs apiece this week, while FOX just missed joining them by having three of the Top 20 most mentioned programs.

New programs in our Top 20: AMC’s Better Call Saul (#8) and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy (#19).

No longer in our Top 20 this week: Netflix’s Orange is the New Black (previously #19) and CBS’ Survivor (previously #20).
