    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.

    Fox: 6.1 rating/10 share, CBS: 5.7/ 9, NBC: 4.1/ 7, ABC: 1.9/ 3, CW: 0.8/ 1

    NBC: +64, CBS: – 2, ABC and Fox: -14 each, CW: -43


    “The Big Bang Theory” (CBS), “The Blacklist” (NBC)

    “Beyond the Tank” (ABC), “Heroes Reborn” (NBC), “The World Dog Awards” (CW), “My Diet is Better Than Yours” (ABC)


    Ratings Analysis
    “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS topped the night in the household overnights as always, with a 10.2 rating/16 share in the 8 p.m. half-hour. But it was not enough to lift the Eye net to victory for the evening, which trailed “American Idol” on Fox (6.1/10 from 8-10 p.m.) by four-tenths of a rating point. One year earlier, two hours of “Idol” scored a 7.1/11 on the night.

    Airing out of “The Big Bang Theory” was freshman “Life in Pieces” at a second-place 5.9/ 9 at 8:30 p.m., which dropped by a typical 42 percent. While ratings for “Life in Pieces” on paper certainly looks respectable, erosion of this magnitude is just too severe.

    Next on CBS was “Mom” at a respectable 5.4/ 8 (#2) in the 9 p.m. half-hour, followed by week two of Jane Lynch sitcom “Angel From Hell” at a 4.6/ 7 at 9:30 p.m. (#3). Comparably, “Angel From Hell” dipped by 13 percent from its week-ago series-opener (5.3/ 8 on Jan. 7), which is very typical. And it held 85 percent of the “Mom” lead-in, which does mean it is compatible. In other words, it could be better but it also could be worse.

    “Elementary” capped off the night for CBS with a second-place 3.9/ 7 in the 10 p.m. hour, which trailed week two of competing “Shades of Blue” on NBC (#1: 4.7/ 8) by 17 percent. Comparably, “Shades of Blue” dropped by 22 percent from its week-ago series-opener (6.0/10), which translated into 8.55 million viewers and a 1.8 rating/6 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was canceled “Heroes Reborn” at a fourth-place 2.5/ 4 in the 8 p.m. hour, followed by “The Blacklist” at a 5.1/ 8 at 9 p.m. Comparably, “The Blacklist” built from the 8:30 p.m. of “Heroes Reborn” (2.4/ 4) by a hefty 112 percent.

    Elsewhere, “Beyond the Tank” could not compete on ABC at 8 p.m., with a 2.9/ 5. And it led into week two of “My Diet is Better Than Yours” at a minuscule 1.4/ 2 in the household overnights from 9-11 p.m. And The CW populated the night with two-hour special “The World Dog Awards” at a 0.8/ 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.

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