    Ratings Breakdown:
    It was all about ABC last night care of the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Golden State Warriors on game one of the NBA Finals. Keeping in mind that results for any live sporting event are always approximate, the game one match-up (Warriors 108, Cavaliers 100) averaged an ample 12.9 rating/23 share in the household overnights in the 8 p.m.–12 a.m. block. Comparably, that was 28 percent above the 10.1/18 for Miami Heat at the San Antonio Spurs on the year-ago evening. And that game translated into 14.24 million viewers and a 5.7 rating/18 share among adults 18-49 (based on the Live + Same Day data).

    Earlier in the evening on ABC (and also estimated) was an 8-8:30 p.m. edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” at a 3.2/ 6 in the overnights (#4), followed by the NBA Countdown at a 4.6/ 8 (#2) at 8:30 p.m. Needless to say, ABC will easily dominate in the national ratings this week.

    In season premiere news, NBC drama “Hannibal” was left at the starting gate (which is nothing unusual, unfortunately) with a mere 1.8/ 3 in the household overnights (#3) in the 10 p.m. hour. Comparably, that dipped from week two (and episode three) of the 9:30 p.m. portion of lead-in drama “Aquarius” (2.6/ 4) by 31 percent, and it trailed an encore of CBS’ competing “Elementary” (#2: 3.1/ 5) by 42 percent. Overall, “Aquarius” averaged a 2.9/ 5 in the 9 p.m. hour, which was a loss of a hefty 29 percent from the 4.1/ 7 two episode opener one week earlier. And that resulted in 5.67 million viewers and a 1.1 rating/4 share among adults 18-49 (based on the Live + Same Day data). As a reminder, most new network series drop by 10 to 20 percent in week two.

    In the 8 p.m. hour on NBC was veteran “Dateline” at a dominant 4.6/ 8 from 8-9 p.m.

    On CBS from 8-10 p.m. were encore telecasts of sitcoms “The Big Bang Theory” (#1: 5.1/ 9), “The Odd Couple” (#3: 3.7/ 6), “Mom” (#2: 3.8/ 6) and “Mike & Molly” (#2: 3.6/ 6).

    Elsewhere, Fox dramas “Bones” (#4: 3.5/ 6) and “Wayward Pines” (#3: 3.0/ 5) were consistent from one week earlier. Worth positively noting for quirky “Wayward Pines” was overnight growth of 43 percent from failed year-ago time period occupant “Gang Related” (2.1/ 3 on 6/05/14). And The CW populated the evening with repeats of dramas “iZombie” (#5: 0.6/ 1) and “The Vampire Diaries” (#5: 0.4/ 1).

  • 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.
