Ratings News - 5th February 2014

Today's Early Overnight Ratings

This table shows the early overnight ratings. These ratings are normally adjusted later in the day when all the ratings have been consolidated to take into account any local preemptions and/or overruns. You can find all the final adjusted numbers in our Ratings Database. (See the About section below for details about ratings)

If you are new to ratings or still confused, we recommend you read this excellent Ratings FAQ.

Early Ratings Analysis

The analysis below is based on the early household numbers and are NOT the same as the numbers that will be posted in the above table later. (See the About section below)

Clean Sweep for CBS

CBS 9.9/15
NBC 4.4/ 7
ABC 3.1/ 5
Fox 2.4/ 4
CW 1.6/ 2

-Percent Change from Year-Ago Evening – Tuesday 2/05/13:
CW: +45, NBC: +13, CBS: – 1, Fox: -11, ABC: -38


“NCIS” (CBS), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (CBS), “Person of Interest” (CBS)

-Honorable Mention:
“The Biggest Loser” (NBC)

-No Traction After the Super Bowl Exposure:
“New Girl” (Fox), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (Fox)

“Trophy Wife” (ABC), “Killer Women” (ABC)


-Ratings Breakdown:
It was another clean Tuesday overnight household sweep for CBS with its combination of “NCIS” (12.0 rating/19 share), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (9.8/15) and “Person of Interest” (8.0/12), which outdelivered failed year-ago occupant “Vegas” (6.6/11 on 2/05/13) by 21 percent.

In season-finale news, two hours of “The Biggest Loser” on NBC scored a 4.9/ 8 from 9-11 p.m., peaking in the 10 p.m. half-hour with a 5.2/ 8. Comparably, that was 41 percent above the expanded season-premiere of musical dramedy “Smash” on the year-ago evening (3.7/ 6 on 2/04/13). And it beat 8 p.m. special “Winter Gold”: NBC’s First Look at the Sochi Winter Olympics (#3: 3.6/ 6 at 8 p.m.) by 44 percent.

Over at Fox, the positive news was overnight retention of 96 percent for the Tuesday 9:30 p.m. time period premiere of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and a stronger performance than recent occupant “The Mindy Project.” But a 2.5/ 4 (#2) for the Golden Globe winner out of a fourth-place 2.6/ 4 for “New Girl” at 9 p.m. means that the added exposure from “Super Bowl XVLIII” was not necessarily beneficial. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” did, however, beat competing “Trophy Wife” on ABC (#3: 2.3/ 3) by nine percent.

Earlier in the evening on Fox was “Dads” at a typical 2.4/ 4 (#4) at 8 p.m., followed by a repeat of the pilot episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” at a 2.1/ 3 (#4) at 8:30 p.m.

Elsewhere, ABC had nothing unusual to report (which is not a good thing) for its line-up of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (#2: 4.2/ 7), “The Goldbergs” (#3: 3.3/ 5), aforementioned “Trophy Wife” (#4: 2.3/ 3) and recent failed drama entry “Killer Women” (#3: 2.3/ 4). And “The Originals” and perfectly compatible lead-out “Supernatural” on The CW each scored a 1.6/ 2 in the overnights, which together was 45 percent above the year-ago combination of “Hart of Dixie” and the series finale of “Emily Owens, M.D.”

About the Daily Ratings

Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above.

Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below). Friday's Final Adjusted Ratings are normally available on the following Monday.
