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)

CBS 6.3/10
Fox 6.1/10
ABC 4.3/ 7

CW 1.9/ 3

-Percent Change from Year-Ago Evening – Wednesday 4/03/13:
CW: + 6, CBS: – 3, ABC and NBC: -17 each, Fox: -23


“Survivor” (CBS), “Criminal Minds” (CBS), “Modern Family” (ABC), “CSI” (CBS)

-On the Fence for Renewal:
“Revolution” (NBC), “Suburgatory” (ABC), “Law & Order: SVU” (NBC), “Nashville” (ABC)

-Losers (excluding repeats):
“Mixology” (ABC)


-Ratings Breakdown:
CBS led the Wednesday overnight troops, inching past the home of “American Idol,” Fox, by two-tenths of a rating point in households. “American Idol” scored a 6.1 rating/10 share from 8-10 p.m., dropping from the year-ago evening (7.9/12 on 4/03/13) by a noticeable 23 percent. Competing “Survivor” on CBS was consistent from one year earlier with a 6.0/10, which should be more than enough to dominate the hour in the key young adult demographics.

SPOILER ALERT: If you did not see “Survivor” yet and do not want to know what happened, skip this paragraph. But sticking to her original alliance might have been a better option for Kass because three of those six were members of the original Brains tribe. Had they reached their goal of getting into the top 6, the Brains would have had the numbers. But for this fan of “Survivor,” blindsiding arrogant Sarah made for one of the most memorable tribal councils in the history of the franchise.

Airing out of “Survivor” was the always-reliable combination of crime solvers “Criminal Minds” (#1 overall from 9-10 p.m.: 6.6/10) and “CSI” (6.4/11 at 10 p.m.).

“Modern Family,” as always, was the standout on ABC with a dominant 6.6/10 in the overnights and growth out of modest lead-in “Suburgatory” (#3: 3.8/ 6 at 8:30 p.m.) of 74 percent. Lead-out “Mixology,” unfortunately, sunk to a fourth-place 3.1/ 5 at 9:30 p.m., followed by sophomore drama “Nashville” at a third-place 3.7/ 6 at 10 p.m. Comparably, “Mixology” dipped from the debut of short-lived year-ago sitcom “How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life”), 6.0/ 9 on 4/03/13, by 48 percent.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was underrated “The Middle” at a third-place 5.0/ 8 at 8 p.m.

In episode three news, CW drama “The 100” slipped to a 1.5/ 2 at 9 p.m., which was 21 percent below lead-in “Arrow” (#5: 1.9/ 3 at 8 p.m.) and 17 percent below the 1.8/ 3 one week earlier. Three-week overnight track for “The 100”: 1.9/ 3 – 1.8/ 3 – 1.5/ 2).

NBC had nothing usual to report, meanwhile, with dramas “Revolution” (#4: 3.0/ 5), “Law & Order: SVU” (#4: 4.3/ 7) and “Chicago PD” (#2: 4.0/ 7), which to-date is the only one of the three to be officially renewed.

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.
