Ratings News - 23rd 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: 7.5 rating/12 share, NBC: 4.6/ 8, ABC: 2.2/ 4, Fox: 1.2/ 2, CW: 1.5/ 2

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    NBC: + 2, CBS: – 7, CW: -17, ABC: -21, Fox: -40

    Ratings Breakdown:
    CBS stood well above No. 2 NBC in the Tuesday household overnights, with an advantage of 63 percent. But the home of “The Voice” could still be the network to beat in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demographics).

    In series-premiere news, NBC medical drama “Heartbeat” had some sampling with a second-place 4.1 rating/ 7 share in households from 9-10 p.m. But it was 60 percent below the 8:30 p.m. portion of lead-in “The Voice” (10.2/16). It slipped by 16 percent in the second half-hour (4.4/ 7 to 3.7/ 6). And it was seven percent below for the most recent original episode of regularly scheduled “Chicago Med” (4.4/ 7 on Feb. 23). In other words, do not expect much tonight in the series regularly scheduled Wednesday 8 p.m. hour.

    “Heartbeat” led into a second-place 2.7/ 4 for a repeat of “Chicago Fire” at 10 p.m. Earlier in the evening was aforementioned “The Voice” at a 7.1/12 from 8-9 p.m., which trailed competing “NCIS” on CBS (#1 for the night: 10.0/16) by 29 percent. “The Voice,” of course, is a lock for all young adult demo leadership.

    In time period premiere news, “Beyond the Tank” could not reverse ABC’s perennial woes in the hour, with a mere 1.6/ 3 in the household overnights at 10 p.m. Comparably, that slipped from modest lead-in “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” (#3: 2.1/ 3) by 24 percent.

    Opening the night for ABC were sitcoms “Fresh Off the Boat” (#3: 3.1/ 5) and recently introduced “The Real O’Neals” (#3: 2.5/ 4) from 8-9 p.m., which were at typical overnight levels. On CBS, both “NCIS: New Orleans” (#1: 8.3/13) and freshman “Limitless” (#1: 4.3/ 7) were above average from 9-11 p.m.

    Elsewhere, only sitcom “New Girl” on Fox was original, with a last-place 1.7/ 3 at 8 p.m. And it led into encore telecasts of “”Grandfathered” (#5: 0.9/ 2), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 1.1/ 2) and “The Grinder” (#4: 1.0/ 2) from 8:30-10 p.m. And The CW scored a 2.1/ 3 (#4) for “The Flash” at 8 p.m. into a 0.9/ 1 for “iZombie” at 9 p.m., which slipped by 59 percent.

  • 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.
