  • Last Week's Final Adjusted Ratings

  • Early Ratings Analysis by Marc Berman (TVMediaInsights)
    The analysis below is based on the early household numbers and are NOT the same as the numbers that will be posted in the above table later. (See the About section below)

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


    Sunday 10/25/15 Metered Markets

    NBC 10.6/17
    CBS 6.7/11
    Fox 6.0/ 9
    ABC 3.2/ 5

    -Percent Change from Year-Ago Evening – Sunday 10/26/14:
    NBC: +25, ABC: + 3, Fox: -24, CBS: -29

    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.

    “Sunday Night Football” (NBC), “The OT” (Fox)

    -Honorable Mention:
    “60 Minutes” (CBS), “Madam Secretary” (CBS), “Quantico” (ABC)

    “Once Upon a Time” (ABC)

    “Blood & Oil” (ABC), “CSI: Cyber” (CBS)


    -Ratings Breakdown:
    The Philadelphia Eagles at the Carolina Panthers on “Sunday Night Football” led NBC to another easy overnight victory with an estimated 13.6 rating/22 share in households from 8:30-11:45 p.m. Comparably, this was seven percent below the 14.6/23 for New England vs. Indianapolis one week earlier and that translated into 22.82 million viewers and an 8.2 rating/23 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was pre-game “Football Night in America” at a 2.1/ 4 at 7 p.m. (#4), a 4.5/ 8 at 7:30 p.m. (#2) and a dominant 9.0/15 in the 8 p.m. half-hour. As a reminder, results for any live sporting event are always estimated. As long as there is football, NBC owns Sunday.
    CBS, which is approximate per program given some football overruns in the 7 p.m. half-hour, opened with granddaddy “60 Minutes” at a 7.8/13 in the 7 p.m. hour (#2), followed by older skewing dramas “Madam Secretary” (#2: 7.8/12), “The Good Wife” (#2: 6.6/10) and “CSI: Cyber” (#2: 4.7/ 8) from 8-11 p.m. When parent “CSI” ended on Sept. 15, the whole franchise should have officially concluded.

    Elsewhere, Fox benefited by the hefty 15.9/27 for a football overrun at 7 p.m. into post-game “The OT” at an 8.0/13 (#2) at 7:30 p.m. The regularly scheduled 8-10 p.m. comedy block – “The Simpsons” (#3: 4.4/ 7), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 3.0/ 4), “Family Guy” (#3t, 2.6/ 4) and “Last Man on Earth” (#4: 2.2/ 3) – all got a boost from the added lead-in support.

    On ABC, freshman “Quantico” earned its full season renewal with a 3.9/ 7 in the overnights at 10 p.m. (#3) coming in 50 percent above also freshman “Blood & Oil” (#3, 2.6/ 4 at 9 p.m.), which just had its episode order slashed from 13 to 10. Earlier in the evening was veteran “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#3: 3.2/ 5 at 7 p.m.), now hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro, into “Once Upon a Time” (#4: 3.2/ 5 at 8 p.m.), which year-to-year slipped by 24 percent.

  • 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
