8:00 The Middle #27 "The Diaper Incident" (REPEAT)
8:30 Better With You #20 "Better With Crying"
9:00 Modern Family #37 "Caught in the Act" (REPEAT)
9:30 Cougar Town #41 "You're Gonna Get It"
10:00 Happy Endings #5 "Like Father, Like Gun"
10:30 Modern Family #38 "Bixby's Back" (REPEAT)
On the last night before May Sweeps, ABC’s lineup is half new. Better With You had a nice sampling on Monday night but it follows a repeat. It could still be slightly up from last week, but probably not much if at all. Cougar Town and Happy Endings might suffer a bit from being behind a Modern Family repeat and will both probably be down a bit from last week.
Prediction: Middle – 4.9 million, 1.3/Better – 5.5 million, 1.7/Family 9:00 – 5.6 million, 2.1/Cougar – 5.5 million, 2.1/Happy – 4.2 million, 1.7/Family 10:30 – 3.9 million, 1.5
9:00 Criminal Minds #116 "JJ" (REPEAT)
10:00 Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior #3 "See No Evil" (REPEAT)CBS is only new in the 8:00 hour with Survivor. With ABC’s The Middle and repeat and the finale coming soon, it could be up slightly from last week. The two Criminal Minds shows should be on par with last week’s repeats.
Prediction: Survivor – 11.4 million, 3.2/Criminal – 8.5 million, 1.9/Suspect – 7.0 million, 1.6
8:00 Inside the Royal Wedding
9:00 The Voice (REPEAT)NBC is all new at 8pm with a Royal Wedding special which should be above the usual numbers for Minute to Win It but probably won’t be a huge draw. At 9pm is an encore of the premiere of The Voice. Most people who wanted to see it probably checked it out during its premiere but it still may get a few eyes.
Prediction: Wedding – 5.9 million, 1.4/Voice – 4.8 million, 1.3
8:00 American Idol
9:30 Breaking In #4 "White on White on White"FOX is all new with its regular lineup. With similar competition (slighty less on ABC, slightly more on NBC), they should be around normal levels to last week. Another steady performance for Breaking In might inch it towards renewal regardless of the huge lead-in.
Prediction: Idol – 22.9 million, 7.2/Breaking – 7.4 million, 2.5
