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)

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)

For more information on the Nielsen Ratings see this Wikipedia Entry.

Tuesday 10/22/13 Metered Market Ratings
Clean Sweep for CBS; All Nets Consistent from One Week Earlier

CBS 10.1/17
NBC 6.0/10
ABC 3.5/ 6
Fox 2.6/ 4
CW 1.5/ 2

-Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening – Tuesday 10/23/12:
CW: +36, NBC: +22, CBS: + 5, Fox: -13, ABC: -39


“NCIS” (CBS), “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (ABC), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (CBS), “The Voice” (NBC), “Person of Interest” (CBS)

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

-Losers (excluding repeats):
“The Mindy Project” (Fox)


-Ratings Breakdown:
It was another clean Tuesday overnight sweep for CBS care of “NCIS” (12.2 rating/20 share – #1 for the evening), spin-off “NCIS: Los Angeles” (9.6/15) and “Person of Interest” (8.4/15), which built from failed year-ago occupant “Vegas” (7.2/12 on 10/23/12) by 17 percent. But another Tuesday edition of “The Voice” (#2: 8.2/13 at 9 p.m.) could be strong enough to lift NBC to victory among adults 18-49 (and other key young adult demos). Comparably, “The Voice” increased from lead-in “The Biggest Loser” (#3: 4.7/ 7 at 8 p.m.), which was consistent from its week-ago opener, by 74 percent. And that translated into a very respectable 2.3 rating/7 share in the demo (based on the live plus same day data).

NBC capped off this fourth Tuesday in October with relocated “Chicago Fire” at a second-place 5.1/ 9 at 10 p.m., which was 46 percent above year-ago occupant “Parenthood” (3.5/ 6 on 10/23/12). Although “Chicago Fire” trailed competing “Person of Interest” by 39 percent in the overnights, the race among adults 18-49 will be neck-and-neck.

ABC was virtually identical to one week earlier from 8-10 p.m. with its combination of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (#2: 5.1/ 8), “The Goldbergs” (#3: 3.7/ 6) and “Trophy Wife” (#3: 2.8/ 5), which is a positive for only “S.H.I.E.L.D.” But since all four of the new ABC comedies are lagging this season, that might buy “Wonder Years”-wannabe “The Goldbergs” and worthier “Trophy Wife” more time.

ABC closed the night with an encore of “Shark Tank” at a very distant 2.3/ 4 at 10 p.m.

Excluding a one-tenth of a rating point (or four percent) drop for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” fourth-place Fox was flat from one week earlier. “Dads” opened with a 2.7/ 4 at 8 p.m., which translated into a 1.5 rating/5 share among adults 18-49 last week (according to the live plus same day data), followed by aforementioned “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (2.7/ 4: 1.5/ 4 in adults 18-49 on Oct. 15), “New Girl” (#4: 2.8/ 4: A18-49: 1.8/ 5 on Oct. 15) and “The Mindy Project” (2.1/ 3: A18-49: 1.4/ 4). Since “Dads” is now consistent and Fox knows a thing or two about that type of bawdy humor (think “Married With Children”), a full season episode order should be on the near horizon.

The CW was also on par from one week earlier care of the very compatible “The Originals” (#5: 1.5/ 2), which built by 25 percent from year-ago occupant “Hart of Dixie” (1.1/ 2 on 10/23/12), and “Supernatural” (#5: 1.5/ 2). Chances of a full season renewal for “The Originals” is 100 percent — it is on the way.

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)

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.
