    Ratings Breakdown:
    Note: The Republican Debate aired on Fox News Channel from 9-11 p.m.

    Fox led the household overnights on this final January Thursday care of “American Idol,” which at a 6.0 rating/10 share from 8-10 p.m. was just eight percent below the 6.5/10 for a one-hour edition on the year-ago evening. All things considered, “American Idol” will be exiting on a positive note in this 15th – and final – season.

    In series-premiere news, NBC got some traction out of “You, Me and the Apocalypse”,” which originally aired in Britain for 10 episodes in 2015. The one-hour comedy, starring Rob Lowe, scored a third-place 3.3/ 5 in the household overnights from 8-9 p.m., which generated the network’s strongest regular-program household rating in the time period since Oct. 1, 2015 (with the season’s second episode of “Heroes Reborn,” 3.6/6). Comparably, “You Me and the Apocalypse” also opened 38 percent above the prior three week average overnight household rating for “Heroes Reborn” (2.4).

    Both “The Blacklist” (#2” 4.9/ 8 at 9 p.m.) and recently introduced “Shades of Blue” (#1: 4.5/ 8) on NBC from 9-11 p.m. held up well opposite the Republican Debate, with “Shades” inching closer to a second season renewal each week.

    In season (or series) finale news, “My Diet is Better Than Yours” on ABC concluded with a slim 1.5/ 2 from 9-11 p.m. Comparably, that was 48 percent below lead-in “Beyond the Tank” (#4: 2.9/ 4 from 8-9 p.m.). The hefty year-to-year decline of 71 percent overall for ABC in these overnight households is a result of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder” airing on the year-ago evening.

    In week two news, “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” on The CW scored a 1.9/ 3 in the household overnights from 8-9 p.m., which was an expected 17 percent below the 2.3/ 4 launch one week earlier. That 2.3 overnight rating translated into 3.21 million viewers and a 1.2 rating/4 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data. Comparably, this was 36 percent above former time period occupant “The Vampire Diaries” on the year-ago evening (1.4/ 2 on 1/29/15). And it led into a 1.0/ 2 for “The 100” at 9 p.m., which slipped by a considerable 47 percent.

    Elsewhere, CBS featured encore telecasts of “The Big Bang Theory” (#1: 6.1/10), “Mom” (#2: 4.7/ 7) and another episode of “The Big Bang Theory” (#3: 4.9/ 8) from 8-9:30 p.m. into episode four of sitcom “Angel From Hell” (#3: 4.3/ 7 at 9:30 p.m.) and DVR-friendly crime solver “Elementary” (#2: 4.0/ 7 at 10 p.m.). Comparably, “Angel From Hell” is only on par from short-lived year-ago occupant “The McCarthys.”

  • 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.
