    Ratings Breakdown:
    The 15th – and final – season premiere of “American Idol” on Fox flexed some muscle with a dominant 7.3 rating/12 share in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m. The peak half-hour was a 7.6/12 at 8:30 p.m. While this was five percent below the 7.7/12 for the one-hour (8-9 p.m.) year-ago season opener, Fox did manage to beat second-place NBC by over 2-houehold rating points. That 7.7 rating in the household overnights for “American Idol” last year translated into 11.20 million viewers and a 3.2 rating/10 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data. So, expect something similar from last night.

    Returning from a seven-week break from their last originals, “Chicago P.D.” on NBC concluded the “Chicago” triple crossover this week with a season-high 5.8/10 at 10 p.m. Comparably, this was seven percent above the 9:30 p.m. portion of veteran lead-in “Law & Order: SVU” (5.4/ 9), and it bested the sophomore season-premiere of ABC’s competing “American Crime” (3.4/ 6) by a hefty 71 percent.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was older-skewing “The Mysteries of Laura” at a third-place 4.5/ 7 at 8 p.m., followed by aforementioned “SVU” at a 5.3/ 9 from 9-10 p.m. Compared to their prior originals on Nov. 18, “SVU” and “Chicago PD” increased by 26 percent and 32 percent, respectively.

    In season-premiere news, the sixth – and final – season of “Mike & Molly” on CBS scored a modest 4.3/ 7 at 8:30 p.m. (#3), which was seven percent above relocated lead-in “2 Broke Girls” (#4: 4.0/ 6 at 8 p.m.). With enough episodes for off-network, CBS might want to consider putting Max and Caroline out of business this spring.

    Next on CBS was the “2016 People’s Choice Awards,” which at a 4.2/ 7 from 9-11 p.m. was 29 percent below the year-ago telecast (5.9/ 9 on 1/07/15). And that 5.9 in the overnights last year translated into 8.62 million viewers and a 1.8/ 5 in adults 18-49. Note to the producers of “The People’s Choice Awards”: you need to now also include the digital carriers for the television portion of the votes.

    Elsewhere, ABC was right on track in the Wednesday sitcom department with its combination of “The Middle” (#2: 5.0/ 8), “The Goldbergs” (#4: 4.2/ 7), “Modern Family” (#2: 5.6/ 9) and ‘black-ish” (#3t, 4.2/ 7). But the 3.4/ 6 for the second season-premiere of aforementioned “American Crime” was a considerable 44 percent below the 6.1/11 for its series-premiere in the Thursday 10 p.m. hour on 3/04/15.

    And The CW featured encore telecasts of “Arrow” (#5: 0.7/ 1) and “Supernatural” (#5: 0.6/ 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.
