Ratings News - 17th March 2016

  • 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.

    Household Rating/Share
    CBS: 5.8 rating/10 share, ABC: 4.3/ 7, NBC: 2.9/ 5, Fox: 2.7/ 4, CW: 0.6/ 1

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    CBS:+ 9, ABC: + 8, NBC: – 3, CW: -60, Fox: -75

    Ratings Breakdown:
    CBS, which featured the series debut of “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders,” scored an easy Wednesday household overnight victory with a 35 percent advantage over second-place ABC. “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” opened with a dominant 5.8 rating/10 share at 10 p.m., which held 95 percent of its “Criminal Minds” lead-in (#1: 6.1/10). And this was an improvement over “CSI: Cyber” in the week-ago (4.0/ 7 on March 9) and year-ago (5.1/ 9 on 3/17/15) time period of 45 percent and 14 percent, respectively. It was also stronger than recently renewed time period occupant “Code Black.”

    While the skew for “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” will certainly be older (expect about a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 for the opener, based on the Live + Same Day data), more than 10-million viewers will probably have sampled the series once all the data (DVR included) is factored it. This is a positive start.

    Earlier in the evening on the Eye net was the always reliable “Survivor” at a time period winning 5.6/ 9 in the household overnights from 8-9 p.m. Once again, this is another addictive season. Note to Mark Burnett: Please make sure invite Caleb back for another season.

    On ABC, on-the-fence drama “Nashville” returned from hiatus with a typically bland 3.2/ 6 at 10 p.m. Comparably, that was second in the hour (instead of the usual third), with a 19 percent advantage over a repeat of competing “Chicago PD” on NBC (#3: 2.7/ 5). And “Nashville” dipped from lead-in “black-ish” (#3: 4.4/ 7 at 9:30 p.m.) by 27 percent.

    Earlier in the evening on ABC were typical overnight results for the renewed combination of “The Middle” (#2: 4.8/ 8), “The Goldbergs” (#2: 4.5/ 7) and “Modern Family” (#2: 5.8/ 9) from 8-9:30 p.m. As much as I personally enjoy “The Middle,” how many more excuses can the writers come up with for Axl (Charlie McDermott) and Sue (Eden Sher) to be home from school?

    Elsewhere, Fox had no positive news care of the pairing of “Rosewood” (#4: 2.7/ 4), which is not worthy of a second season, and “Hell’s Kitchen” (#4: 2.6/ 4), which at this point should be a summer option only. NBC featured two repeat episodes of “Law & Order: SVU” (8 p.m.: #3, 3.1/ 5; 9 p.m.: #3: 2.9/ 5) into the aforementioned “Chicago PD” encore. And The CW was also in repeats care 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.
