Stats Spotlight - First Quarter Results for more shows, including NCIS / POI / Bones / Criminal Minds

(Check out my website, www.seriesmonitor.com)

A week ago I posted a table which showed the first quarter results of 7 of the shows I follow on my website. Now that we have moved a week further through the new season, I can put another few shows and their results on the table as well

Again, the way this works is pretty simple, you take all the ratings, add them together to make a larger number, then divide it by 6 to get an average rating across the first 6 episodes. This same method works for calculating the average audience

Each show in the table below has the ratings and audience highs and lows, along with the ratings and audience average. Note that shows that aired last season have the numbers from last season's first 6 episodes listed in brackets. Also bear in mind that a couple of shows have aired more than six episodes, but only the first six are counted in this table. For running analysis of these shows, that data can be found on my website, www.seriesmonitor.com, under the Season Break down section of each show

Like the table last week, where the biggest margin exists between a show's results from last season and this season in a category, the box is colored orange. If there is a gain in results on last season, the box is colored green, if it's white it means there is a loss on last season. 

Note that FOX's Bones had a shortened season last season, so it's first quarter for comparison to this season is just 3 episodes, instead of the usual six. It's ratings dropped dramatically over the course of a cut up last season, as the Season 7 graphs here demonstrates

Show  Ratings high  Ratings low  Ratings average  Audience high  Audience low  Audience average

P.O.I. 3.0 (3.1) 2.8 (2.6) 2.90 (2.77) 14.87 (13.33) 13.66 (11.57) 14.23 (12.25)
 NCIS 4.1 (4.3) 3.1 (3.9) 3.48 (4.12) 20.48 (19.96) 17.05 (18.98) 18.59 (19.44)
 Bones 2.3 (3.3) 1.9 (2.6) 2.10 (2.87) 7.98 (10.00) 6.96 (8.64) 7.34 (9.13)
 Criminal Minds 3.1 (4.1) 2.9 (3.6) 3.03 (3.82) 12.09 (14.14) 11.49 (12.58) 11.79 (13.19)

It's interesting to note that Castle, The Mentalist, Bones, and Criminal Minds, all share the same highest ratings differential of 1.0 across the two seasons analyzed. As a result, they all get orange boxes

Shows that are doing very well in comparison to last season are quite obvious, with The Big Bang Theory, Revenge, and Person of Interest the standouts. NCIS also pulled a larger audience high compared to last season, but has suffered elsewhere. Criminal Minds, NCIS, and The Mentalist in particular are experiencing large drops, with the lines on the Season Comparison graphs on my website tunneling under those of previous seasons 

Freshman shows Last Resort, The Mob Doctor, and 666 Park Avenue will remain absent until the fate of the remainder of their seasons is determined, because this impacts on the length of the first quarter of episodes. Grey's Anatomy and Glee each air their sixth episodes tomorrow, and I plan to update the table then. Their results will all be negative at this stage, according to the season breakdowns of each show on my website. Scandal had a very short 7 episode first season, and as a result it won't be included on this table

Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, Bones, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and Castle all have additional seasons beyond the last season that is shown in the table. To see these seasons, go to my website, www.seriesmonitor.com, click on the show you're interested in, then to the Statistics section, where you'll see the Season Breakdown button. There you will find complete quarterly breakdowns of the previous seasons that have aired, along with graphs and the information for the lead-in shows. I'm not going to copy and paste it all here when it's already available on my site! For Once Upon A Time, Person of Interest, and Revenge, there is also further analysis on the data shown in the table on their respective Season Breakdown pages

Thanks for reading, I'll try to answer any questions you may have in the comments below

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
