  • Last Week's Final Adjusted Ratings

  • Early HH Ratings from Marc Berman (programminginsider)
    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: 4.7 rating/8 share, ABC and NBC: 4.6/ 8 each, CBS: 4.0/ 7, CW: 1.5/ 2

    Note: Comparisons to the year-ago evening are not available at press time.

    Ratings Breakdown:
    Fox led this first Wednesday in February in the household overnights, inching past second-place ABC and NBC by one-tenth of a rating. “American Idol” topped the night at a 6.3 rating/10 share from 8-9 p.m., and it led into a 3.2/ 5 for “Hell’s Kitchen” at 9 p.m. Comparably, retention for “Hell’s Kitchen” out of the 8:30 p.m. portion of “American Idol” was lacking at just 50 percent.

    On ABC, part one of miniseries “Madoff,” starring Richard Dreyfuss, was on the overnight map with a 5.5/8 in households from 8-10 p.m. While the audience skew is expected to be older, what was impressive about these household overnights was only a 0.4 rating point fluctuation from the first half-hour (5.7/ 9 at 8 p.m.) to the last half-hour (5.3/ 8 at 9:30 p.m.). “Madoff” concludes this evening.

    ABC’s sophomore “American Crime” finished in the distant No. 3 spot in the 10 p.m. hour with a 3.1/ 5, which trailed competing “Chicago PD” on NBC (4.7/ 8) and “Code Black” on CBS (4.5/ 8) by 34 percent and 31 percent, respectively. Overnight retention for “American Crime” out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of “Madoff” was lacking at 58 percent.

    Over at CBS, sitcoms “2 Broke Girls” (#4: 4.0/ 6) and soon-to-conclude “Mike & Molly” (#4: 4.2/ 7) from 8-9 p.m. led into a 3.5/ 5 for an encore telecast of “Criminal Minds” from 9-10 p.m. What was impressive about aforementioned “Code Black” at 10 p.m. (4.5/ 8) was growth out of the “Criminal Minds” second-run of 41 percent. My crystal ball tells me there will be a third season of “Code Black.”

    NBC, meanwhile, opened the evening with older-skewing sophomore drama “The Mysteries of Laura” (#3: 4.5/ 7 at 8 p.m.) into a second-place 4.8/ 8 (#2) for just renewed “Law & Order: SVU.” An option for a third season of “The Mysteries of Laura” could be a Friday night time period. And “Arrow” on The CW (#5: 1.8/ 3 at 8 p.m.) led into a 1.3/ 2 (#5) at 9 p.m. for the show that will just not end, “Supernatural.”

  • 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.
