Today in TV History
“Amos ‘n’ Andy,” which was based on the radio show of the same name, debuted on CBS in 1951. Ongoing protests by civil rights groups such as the NAACP for fostering racial stereotypes resulted in the sitcom being canceled just two seasons into its run. In 1973, NBC premiered summer variety series “The Helen Reddy Show,” which aired for two months.

Ratings Breakdown:
There was little of note on this final Thursday in June, which featured only two networks – ABC and Fox – in originals. CBS finished first in each of the six half-hours care of its encore combination of “The Big Bang Theory” (5.6 rating/10 share), which topped the night, “Two and a Half Men” (4.3/ 8), which has benefited out of Sheldon and Leonard and company all season, and “Person of Interest” (4.4/ 8) and “Elementary” (3.7/ 7).

Moving “Person of Interest” into the Tuesday 10 p.m. hour next fall (out of “NCIS: Los Angeles”) will, no doubt, benefit the evening. But the risk of airing comedies in the Thursday 9 p.m. hour is potentially alienating the viewers accustomed to “Person of Interest.” Unless you are a die-hard fan of Robin Williams, anticipate considerable erosion after the expected ample sampling for “The Crazy Ones.” From a pilot standpoint, two thumbs down.

In season (or series) finale news, Fox reality/competition “Does Someone Have to Go?” exited with a mere 1.9/ 3 in the overnights from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, that finished a distant third in the hour with retention out of young demo favorite lead-in “Hell’s Kitchen” (4.1/ 7 from 8-9 p.m.) of only 46 percent. Comparably, “Hell’s Kitchen” should have no trouble dominating the 8 p.m. hour demographically.

Over at ABC, tired “Wipeout” is no longer the summer attraction it once was, with a third-place 2.6/ 5 from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, that was 21 percent below failed year-ago occupant “Duets” (3.3/ 6 on 6/28/12). Next on ABC was Canadian drama “Motive,” which perked up to a second-place 3.4/ 6 in the overnights at 9 p.m. followed by established “Rookie Blue,” also from Canada, at an identical 3.4/ 6 (#2) at 10 p.m.

Elsewhere, NBC populated the evening with repeats of two episodes of “Parks and Recreation” (#4: avg. 1.4/ 2 from 8-9 p.m.), a one-hour installment of concluded “The Office” (#4: 1.3/ 2 from 9-10 p.m.) and a 10 p.m. edition of “America’s Got Talent” (#3: 2.4/ 4). And The CW aired encores of “The Vampire Diaries” (#5: 0.6/ 1) and “Beauty and the Beast” (#5: 0.5/ 1), which is moving into the Monday 9 p.m. hour this fall (out of also relocated “Hart of Dixie”).

Two More Sharks on ABC
ABC’s “Shark Tank” will add two new faces into the tank next season: Steve Tisch, Chairman and Executive Vice President of the New York Giants and partner at Escape Artists Productions; and John Paul DeJoria, the co-founder of the Paul Mitchell line of hair products and The Patron Spirits Company. They will join returning sharks Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John, Barbara Corcoran and the “Queen of QVC,” Lori Greiner.

“Shark Tank” will air Fridays at 9 p.m. ET next season, out of relocated sitcom “The Neighbors” (and opposite relocated “Hawaii Five-O” on CBS, “Grimm” on NBC, repeats of new drama “Sleepy Hollow” on Fox, and tired “America’s Next Top Model” on The CW).
