    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.

    MONDAY, JANUARY 25, 2016
    Metered Markets

    CBS: 5.9 rating/9 share, Fox: 5.4/ 8, ABC: 4.6/ 7, NBC: 2.3/ 4, CW: 0.8/ 1

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Week:
    Fox: +54, CBS: +11, ABC: – 8, CW: -33, NBC: -49

    “The X-Files” (Fox)

    -Honorable Mention:
    “Lucifer” (Fox)

    “Telenovela” (NBC), “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (CW), “The Biggest Loser” (NBC), “Jane the Virgin” (CW)


    Ratings Breakdown:
    CBS topped this final January Monday in the household overnights with its combination of “Supergirl” (#3: 4.8/ 7), which is a shoo-in for a second season renewal, “Scorpion” (#1 for the night: 6.6/10) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (#1: 6.5/10). If it “ain’t broke, there is no need to fix it,” so the assumption is this Monday night line-up will remain intact on the Eye net next season.

    In time period premiere news, the revival of “The X-Files” in the Monday 8 p.m. was certainly not the powerhouse it was out the Arizona Cardinals at the Carolina Panthers on the top-rated NFC Championship on Sunday. But a 6.2 rating/9 share in the household overnights last night topped the 8 p.m. time period, besting the first-hour of “The Bachelor” on ABC (#2: 5.6/ 8) and aforementioned “Supergirl” on CBS by 11 percent and 29 percent, respectively. And “The X-Files” was a hefty 48 percent over year-ago occupant “Gotham” (4.2/ 6 on 1/26/15). Consider this a positive time period debut for the return of “The X-Files.”

    Next on Fox was the series premiere of drama “Lucifer,” which finished third in the 9 p.m. hour with a respectable 4.6/ 7 in the household overnights. Comparably, this was 59 percent over year-ago time period occupant “Sleepy Hollow” (2.9/ 4 on 1/26/15). Overnight retention out of lead-in “The X-Files” was respectable at 74 percent. And the slippage in the second half-hour was only four percent (4.7/ 7 to 4.5/ 7). Mirroring “The X-Files,” this is a positive start for “Lucifer.”

    Over at ABC, two more hours of guilty pleasure “The Bachelor” was on the map with a 5.5/ 8 from 8-10 p.m. And it led into another edition of post-show “Bachelor Live” at a second-place 3.3/ 5 at 10 p.m.

    On NBC, Monday 8-9 p.m. sitcoms “Superstore” (#4: 3.1/ 5) and “Telenovela” (#4: 2.2/ 3) lost steam, dipping by 14 and 15 percent, respectively, from one week earlier. But there is every reason to still expect a second season for “Superstore.” And they led into “The Biggest Loser,” which scored a slim (excuse the pun) 2.1/ 3 in the household overnights from 9-11 p.m.

    The CW capped off the night with the perennially low-rated pairing of one-hour comedies “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (#5: 0.7/ 1) and “Jane the Virgin” (#5: 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
