    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.

    THURSDAY 2/04/16
    Metered Markets

    Fox: 6.2 rating/10 share, CBS: 5.5/ 9, ABC: 5.1/ 8, NBC: 3.6/ 6, CW: 1.4/ 2

    Percent Change From the Year-Ago Evening:
    Fox: +32, CW: +27, CBS: -11, NBC: -22, ABC: -23


    “The Big Bang Theory” (CBS), “American Idol” (Fox), “The Blacklist” (NBC)

    “You, Me and the Apocalypse” (NBC), “The 100” (CW)


    Ratings Breakdown:
    Note: MSNBC aired the Presidential Democratic Debate from 9-11 p.m.

    Fox took center stage in the Thursday overnights, besting No. 2 CBS by 0.7 rating points thanks to a 6.2 rating/10 share in the household overnights for “American Idol” from 8-10 p.m. But CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” featuring Oscar nominated actress June Squibb, topped the night as always at a 9.9/16 in the 8 p.m. half-hour.

    Next on CBS was freshman “Life in Pieces” (#2: 5.7/ 9 at 8:30 p.m.), which slipped by a too extensive 42 percent and is not the type of sitcom that can anchor an hour. “Mom,” featuring guest star Rosie O’Donnell, scored a typical 5.2/ 8 in the overnights at 9 p.m. (#2t), followed by recent entry “Angel From Hell” at a fourth-place 4.1/ 6 at 9:30 p.m. Comparably, “Angel From Hell” slipped by 16 percent from the 4.9/ 8 for a repeat of “The Big Bang Theory” on the year-ago evening and is no better than former time period occupant “The McCarthys” last season.

    DVR-friend Eye net crime solver “Elementary” tied competing “Shades of Blue” on NBC, each with a 4.0/ 7 in the overnights at 10 p.m. Comparably, that was 22 percent below “Madoff: After the Fall” on ABC (#1: 5.1/ 8). The alphabet net special led out of the conclusion of four-hour miniseries “Madoff,” which averaged a 5.1/ 8 from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, a 5.5/ 8 for part one of “Madoff” on Wednesday translated into 7.08 million viewers and a 1.2 rating/4 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data. In other words, not bad.

    In week two news, NBC dramedy “You, Me and the Apocalypse” sunk a distant 2.3/ 4 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m., which was 30 percent below the 3.3/ 5 last Thursday. And that 3.3 translated into 5.02 million viewers and a 1.2 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 (based on the Live + Same Day data).

    Next on NBC was already renewed “The Blacklist” at a 4.6/ 7 (#3) from 9-10 p.m., followed by aforementioned “Shades of Blue” at a 4.0/ 7 at 10 p.m. (#2). Of positive note for “The Blacklist” and “Shades of Blue” is the stellar DVR usage. Based on the most recent Live + 7 Day results, “Shades of Blue” in adults 18-49 rose from a 1.3 to a 2.6 rating in the demo. That made it the show with the largest growth in the demo for that week (with an additional 4.7 million viewers in total).

    The CW capped off the evening with recent entry “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” (#5: 1.7/ 3), which dropped by 11 percent from the 1.9/ 3 last week, and on-the-fence “The 100” (#5: 1.0/ 2).

  • 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.

NOTE: We will open up the ratings post early so that people can chat/disqus whilst we wait for the HH, T25 Numbers and then the Early Overnight numbers as usual.
