Wednesday 4/09/14 Metered Market Ratings
CBS Gets Over the “Hump” in Winning Fashion

CBS 6.3/10
Fox 6.1/10
NBC 4.3/ 7
ABC 2.5/ 4
CW 1.2/ 2

-Percent Change from Year-Ago Evening – Wednesday 4/10/13:
NBC: +39, CW: +20, CBS: -11, Fox: -27, ABC: -52


“Survivor” (CBS)

-Down but Still Dominant:
“Criminal Minds” (CBS), “CSI” (CBS)

-Losers (excluding repeats):
Mixology (ABC)


-Ratings Breakdown:
CBS is now the network to beat in the Wednesday overnights, with a 0.2 rating point advantage over second-place Fox. “Survivor” opened with a dominant 6.2 rating/10 share in the household overnights from 8-9 p.m., which inched past the first half of competing “American Idol” on Fox (6.1/10) by two percent. But while “Survivor” year-to-year was consistent, “American Idol” overall (6.1/10 from 8-10 p.m.) slipped by 27 percent.

“Criminal Minds” (6.6/10) and granddaddy “CSI” (6.1/10) on CBS both led their time periods from 9-11 p.m. But the two dramas did lose steam from one year earlier, with “Criminal Minds” down by 13 percent and “CSI” down by 16 percent. Regardless, there is every reason to believe the Wednesday line-up on CBS next season will remain consistent.

NBC finished third overall for the evening because only sitcom “Mixology” on ABC (#4: 2.3/ 4 at 9:30 p.m.) was an original. On the fence “Revolution” on NBC was replaced by a repeat of “Law & Order: SVU,” which opened the night with a fourth-place 3.0/ 5 in the overnights at 8 p.m. Next was the regularly scheduled edition of “SVU” at an above average (and third-place) 5.3/ 8 at 9 p.m., followed by already renewed “Chicago PD” at a second-place 4.6/ 8 at 10 p.m., which was 15 percent above the 4.0/ 7 one week earlier. Although “SVU” has not been officially confirmed to return next season, expect a green light once a financial agreement is met.

Next was ABC with its line-up of encores of “The Middle” (#3: 3.3/ 6), “Suburgatory” (#4: 2.4/ 4) and “Modern Family” (#4: 3.4/ 5) from 8-9:30 p.m., aforementioned “Mixology” (#4: series low 2.4/ 4) at 9:30 p.m., and a repeat of “Nashville” at 10 p.m. (#3: 1.7/ 3). To the fans of “Nashville” wondering if their cult favorite drama will return for a third season, my personal prediction is yes. Given ABC’s current woes in the new drama department this season, critically acclaimed “Nashville” will likely be back.

Over at The CW, overnight growth of 27 percent for episode four of “The Hundred” (#5: 1.4/ 2 at 9 p.m.) out of a repeat of “Arrow” at 8 p.m. (#5: 1.1/ 2) is all the more reason to believe a second season is in the cards.

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.

  1. Yay for The 100!!

  2. I'm glad The 100 decreased just a little bit and grew out of Arrow's encore, it wasn't something really sure. Now I hope the rating will be 0.5 or 0.6 :) The 100 needs to skew younger.

  3. Happy to see CPD staying steady. Love that show. And the pairing with SVU is working well don't change it NBC!

  4. It's good The100 held stady without a real Arrow lead in. But I think the show is pretty expencive and it can be a huge stop sign. But looking at it real it has the best chance to get renewed out of the. Bubble shows(TTP,BatB, SC & the CD)

  5. The 100 finally has kinda stabilized, even without Arrow.

  6. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 14:56

    Do you have source about The 100 being more expensive than TTP or BatB? Because those shows look more expensive than The 100.

  7. I think Spindae2 is only speculating since he/she said 'But I think'......

  8. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 15:03

    It seems the rating is a 0.6. I hope they confirm it soon.

  9. Sounds good for the Hundy! Each ep is better than the last!

  10. So this proves that The 100 has found its audience and doesn't need a lead in. For anyone that doesn't remember, in the early overnights last week, it got a 1.5.

  11. It would be interesting to see the production costs for them all. I think TTP would be the most expensive, mainly because they use a lot of sets and their special effects are incredible! I'm not sure about BaTB as I've not seen an episode of it. I don't think The 100 would be too expensive though. They mostly shoot in forests which isn't that expensive, and we haven't seen that much of the arc. It does have some pretty nifty special effects but they really aren't too common. Maybe one an episode? (The fog, the deer etc). But it would be interesting to see how they compare.

  12. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 15:41

    I wish we could get production costs so people stop saying "My favorite show should get renewed because it's cheaper than this show!". This season I think TTP and TO got the bigger budgets and next season The Flash and iZombie will probably get the bigger budgets.

  13. 1.1 for Mixology looks like certain cancellation.

  14. I agree! If The Neighbors comes close to a 1.0 this week, it's very possible ABC could actually renew it over Mixology. No matter what happens to The Neighbors, Mixology has to go simply because of its awful ratings.

  15. Oh god... The 100 did a 0.5 :(

  16. Brandy Danforth10 April 2014 at 16:37

    HaHa The 100 at 0.5, under a two million viewers already.Its declined a little fater than TTP did.It might adjust down too cause half hours were 0.6/0.5.Its not the "strong ,long term player for CW" CW hoped.Its declined every week,

  17. If one half hour has a 0.5 and the other a 0.6, there is no way it's going to adjust down. In fact, it has a bigger chance of adjusting up.

  18. Well, at least The 100 didn't fall any lower than a 0.5. It has a chance of adjusting up as the first half hour had a 0.6. It does skew old though.

  19. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 16:42

    I think it skews young. Under 18 doesn't count in the demo.

  20. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 16:43

    TTP got two 0.3 on Monday and the last time it got a 0.6 Arrow had a 1.2. The 100 can stand on it's own TTP can't.

  21. Brandy Danforth10 April 2014 at 16:45

    TTP got one 0.4, 0ne 0.3 on Mon.Yes TTP can't stand on its own but I don't see that The 100 can either.

  22. SVU in its 15th season is still hitting a 2.0 ... that's very good for NBC.

  23. its skewing older then Arrow, and that was the oldest skewing show till the 100 start airing.

  24. But it also got a 0.5 for its last airing against the Voice, which is stronger then AI. And there isn't much difference between TTP and the 100 if you look just at the last ratings. They are both on the bubble so the last original airings will decide which will stay.

  25. The 100 is basically steady with least with and with no Arrow lead in, which is good. I hope it adjusts up, that would be awesome!

  26. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 16:50

    Did you read my comment?

  27. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 16:52

    The 100 can stand on it's own because it got that rating after an Arrow repeat. TTP got a 0.4 after a new Arrow episode.

  28. you have any data? Because CW only put out a press release for the premiere and there was no mention of the under 18 demos, just 18-34 and 18-49.

  29. I also think it's skewing young rather than old. I think some people forget that under 18 doesn't count, as well as over 49. I think a lot of teens may watch this show, as to why the 18-49 seems low for the viewership.

  30. Yeah, you might be right!

  31. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 16:56

    You don't have any data either about skewing older but it's obvious a show like this skews younger. I don't see 60 year olds talking about it.

  32. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 16:57

    Competition doesn't matter. TVD has aired against BBT for years and it can stand on its own.

  33. The numbers for the premiere of the 100.

    A18-49: 0.9/3; A25-54: 1.1/3; A18-34: 0.7/2; W18-34: 0.7/2

    this were Arrows numbers on the same nite:

    A18-49: 0.8/3; A25-54: 0.9/3; A18-34: 0.8/3; W18-34: 0.7/3

  34. I also DO hope to see some suprises from TN ... but they're higly unlikeable.
    Being quite stable in the ratings (after a 'single shot' 1.2 premiere, it always managed to stay in the 0.9-1.1 range with one or two falls to 0.8) maybe helped the show not to be cancelled during the season.
    So ABC could air all the 22 episodes in the original friday tineslot. This said, I don't see TN getting renewed for a 3rd season ... just hoping there will be no big cliffhangers in next friday finale ... :-)

  35. EuphemiaWonderland10 April 2014 at 19:01

    You are still missing the point. Teens (people under 18) don't count in the demo. If you go to places like tumblr/facebook it's pretty obvious lots of teen are watching the show.

  36. ABC plans on renewing one of thee three sitcoms it owns; Trophy Wife, The Neighbors and Mixology.

  37. But they have to be part of a Nielsen household to matter. If they aren't, it really doesn't matter. And Nielsen keeps track of the 12-17 age group, so they definitely have the data, but so far CW didn't released any info in their press releases regarding those numbers. You have ABC family who constantly releases the info about that age group for their show Pretty Little Liars.
    Tumblr/Facebook is not really conclusive of anything regarding ratings. Yes a lot of teens could be watching it, but unless they are in the US and part of a Nielsen family, they don't really matter to the advertisers.
    I can only comment on the ratings that were reported and the data that was released. And from that data the only thing i can say is that the premiere numbers show that it skewed quite old, when you compare it to other CW shows.

  38. You forgot to mention that The 100 started in spring and yesterday had an encore of Arrow as lead-in (The Tomorrow People aired after new episodes of Arrow until the start of March).

  39. Is it just speculation or there's a source for this?

  40. I remember reading it on deadline.

  41. You're right. Here is the article >

    "There are three ABC Studios-produced comedy series on ABC at the moment, all on the bubble: freshmen Trophy Wife and Mixology and sophomore The Neighbors. The network will likely renew at least one comedy from its own studio (...) Of the three, Trophy Wife seems to have the biggest support and is the most promotable, with KATE SIMSES, ADAM CAMPBELLa star cast led by Malin Akerman and Bradley Whitford. But the name cast also makes Trophy Wife the most expensive, and its ratings are pretty soft. The Neighbors, which comes from prominent Disney writer Dan Fogelman, costs way less, and, while only doing so-so on Fridays, it could deliver something ABC Studios has not seen in a while: a third-year comedy. (Fogelman also has comedy pilot Galavant in the running at ABC.) . (...) "
