    Ratings Breakdown:
    ABC beat the four competing networks combined last night care of game four of The NBA Finals (Warriors 103, Cavaliers 82) , which scored an estimated 14.1 rating/25 share in the household overnights from 9-11:30 p.m. Comparably, this was eight percent above the 13.1/22 for game three on Tuesday, which translated into 18.77 million viewers and a 7.3 rating/25 share among adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data. This was also 34 percent above the 10.5/18 in the overnights on the year-ago evening for game four of the San Antonio Spurs at Miami Heat.

    Earlier in the evening on ABC, which are also approximate, was another half-hour edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (#3t, 3.5/ 6 at 8 p.m.) and the half-hour NBA Countdown (#3t, 3.6/ 6 at 8:30 p.m.).

    In season-premiere news, The CW may want to rethink that fourth season renewal of “Beauty and the Beast” given that season three opened with a mere 0.8/ 1 (#5) in the household overnights from 8-9 p.m. And it led into one-hour special ‘iHeartRadio Summer Pool Party 2015” at a 0.7/ 1 (#5) at 9 p.m. No one ever said that everything original on the broadcast networks would resonate this summer.

    On NBC, which was also all original, an 8-9 p.m. edition of “Dateline” (#2: 4.5/ 8 at 8 p.m.) led into week three (and episode four) of David Duchovny “Aquarius” at a series-low 2.7/ 4 at 9 p.m. Comparably, that was down by seven percent from the 2.9/ 5 in the overnights one week earlier, which translated into only a 0.7/ 2 in adults 18-49 (based on the Live + Same Day data). Capping off the night was episode two of the third season of drama “Hannibal” at an embarrassing 1.4/ 2 at 10 p.m. (#3), which was 22 percent below the 1.8/ 3 for the sophomore season-opener one week earlier. Chances of a fourth season of “Hannibal” at this point are nil.

    Elsewhere, Fox was flat from one week earlier with its drama pairing of “Bones” (#3t: 3.5/ 6) and “Wayward Pines” (#3: 2.9/ 5). And CBS populated the evening with encore telecasts of “The Big Bang Theory” (#1: 4.8/ 9), “the Odd Couple” (#3t, 3.6/ 6), “Mom” (#2: 3.4/ 6), “Mike & Molly” (#2: 3.5/ 6) and three-year old “Elementary” (#2: 2.8/ 5).

  • 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.
