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)

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed here are NOT those of SpoilerTV but of the Author of this Article, Marc Berman.

Sunday 1/18/15 Metered Markets

Note: Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Tulsa are excluded from the following averages.

CBS 21.6/33
ABC 2.6/ 4
NBC 2.2/ 3
Fox 1.9/ 3

-Note: The percent change from the year-ago evening is not available.


Note: The following labels are based on the household overnights and are subject to change given the availability of other pending data streams. The overnights are your first look at what to potentially expect when the other results come in. And we always take into account other benchmarks including the expected demographic ratings, potential DVR usage, the critical acclaim (or lack of) and the social media presence. Keep in mind, as always, that results for any live sporting event are always approximate.

NFL Football: “AFC Championship” (CBS), “Scorpion” (CBS)

Everything else.


-Ratings Breakdown:
It was all about the NFL Football “AFC Championship” on CBS, of course, with the Indianapolis Colts at the New England Patriots at an estimated 25.1 rating/38 share in the household overnights for the 7-10 p.m. ET portion. The peak half-hour was a 27.4/32 at 8 p.m., and the results are estimated due to the live nature of the event. Keep in mind that the Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Tulsa markets were excluded from the averages.

Leading out of a 20.8/31 for the 9:30 p.m. portion of the game/post-game was a special Sunday 10-11 p.m. edition of already renewed CBS freshman drama “Scorpion” at an estimated 11.0/18.

Elsewhere, only ABC was bold enough to air all original programming opposite the “AFC Championship” and it cost them. Veteran “America’s Funniest Home Videos” opened with a 2.9/ 5 in the overnights from 7-8 p.m., followed by recent entry “Galavant” (#3: 2.2/ 3), sophomore “Resurrection” (#2: 2.5/ 4) and “Revenge” (#2: 3.0/ 5) from 8-11 p.m.

NBC populated this night of football with repeats of “Dateline” (#3: 2.8/ 5 from 7-8 p.m.) and 2011 theatrical “Bridesmaids” (2.1/ 3 from 8-11 p.m.). And Fox burned-off another episode of sitcom “Mulaney” (#2: 3.0/ 5 at 7 p.m.) into encore telecasts of “The Simpsons” (7:30 p.m.: #4, 1.9/ 3; 8 p.m.: #3: 2.0/ 3), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 1.6/ 2), “Family Guy” (#4: 1.7/ 2) and “Bob’s Burgers” (#4: 1.8/ 2) from 7:30-10 p.m.

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 (We also where possible now post the 18-34 and 25-54 Demo Numbers).

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.

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