TOMAmeter May 4 – 10: Once Upon a Time in the TOMAmeter …

ABC’s Once Upon a Time wrapped up its fourth season this week and mentions of the program were enough to move it up eight places to #8. This is the highest the program has been since the final week of 2014 when it came in at #6.

There are two more episodes until the season finale of CW’s The Flash and already the program is running up the charts. Last week’s #13th most mentioned program moved up six spots to #7 a rank it hasn’t seen since November 2014.

Sliding down in the rankings and now in danger of falling out of the Top 20 for the first time since its debut is FOX’s Empire. The breakout drama went from #9 to #19 this week.

Missing out on the Top 20 this week was AMC’s Mad Men, which will be airing its series finale next week. Look for mentions of the long running drama to be strong enough to reach the Top 20 for the second time in just under a year.

CBS was finally able to break away from ABC to become the most represented network in the Top 20 this week. With Survivor making the cut, CBS had five programs to ABCs four. Rounding out the top three was CW with three programs this week.

New programs in our Top 20: CBS’ Survivor (#18) and CW’s Supernatural (#20).

No longer in our Top 20 this week: NBC’s Law and Order (previously #18) and ABC’s Modern Family (previously #19).
