    SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2016

    Household Rating/Share
    CBS: 6.4 rating/10 share, NBC: 4.0/ 6, ABC: 3.7/ 6, Fox: 1.5/ 2

    Percent Change From the Year-Ago Week:
    Note: ABC aired The Academy Awards on the year-ago evening
    CBS: +100, NBC: +90, Fox: +15, ABC: -82

    Ratings Breakdown:
    Note: AMC featured an original episode of “The Walking Dead” at 9 p.m. ET (into “The Talking Dead”).

    It was an easy household overnight victory for CBS care of its older-skewing combination of “60 Minutes” (#1 for the evening: 7.9 rating/13 share), “Madam Secretary” (7.6/12), soon-to-conclude “The Good Wife” (5.7/ 9) and “CSI: Cyber” (4.5/ 7). Although the Eye net finished first in each of the eight half-hours, chances of a third season of “CSI: Cyber” is very slim. Was there really a need for this spin-off?

    In the specials department last night were “The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60” on ABC and “Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows” on NBC. “The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60” was the higher rated of the two, with a 4.3/ 7 in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, that built from veteran lead-in “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#3: 3.6/ 6 at 7 p.m.) by 19 percent, and it led into a last-place 2.8/ 4 for a Sunday 10 p.m. edition of “Shark Tank.” Slippage for “Shark Tank” out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of the “Disneyland” special was 26 percent. Note to ABC: Keep “Shark Tank” on Friday.

    On NBC, “Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows,” featuring the casts of “The Big Bang Theory,” “Cheers,” “Frasier,” “Friends,” “Mike & Molly,” “Taxi” and “Will & Grace,” scored a 3.9/ 6 in the overnights from 9-11 p.m., which was NBC’s top-rated household overnights in the two-hour block since the Democratic debate on Jan. 17.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was a two-hour edition of “Dateline” at a 4.0/ 6 from 7-9 p.m.

    Fox capped off the evening with the low-rated combination of a repeat of “The Simpsons” (#5: 1.3/ 2), “Bob’s Burgers” (#4: 1.5/ 2), the regularly scheduled edition of “The Simpsons” (#4: 2.0/ 3), “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” (#4: 1.1/ 2), “Family Guy” (#4: 1.7/ 3) and “Bordertown” (#4: 1.1/ 2). While no network should be judged by the household overnights, Fox needs to address its sinking results next season. And the first move should be the axing of “Cooper Barrett” and “Bordertown.”


  • 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.
