Ratings News - 7th March 2016

7 Mar 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: 6.0 rating/10 share, NBC: 3.6/ 6, ABC: 2.3/ 4, Fox: 1.9/ 3

    Percent Change From the Year-Ago Oscar Night (3/01/15):
    NBC: +44, CBS: – 6, Fox: -10, ABC: -39


    Ratings Breakdown:
    Note: CNN aired the latest Democratic Presidential Debate from 8-10 p.m., and “Downton Abbey” concluded on PBS at 8 p.m.

    CBS topped this first Sunday in March, besting No. 2 NBC by a healthy 36 percent in the household overnights. The Eye net opened with granddaddy “60 Minutes” at an 8.5 rating/14 share at 7 p.m., which led the night, followed by dramas “Madam Secretary” (7.0/11), “The Good Wife” (5.1/ 8) and “CSI: Cyber” (3.7/ 6) each first in their half-hours from 8-11 p.m. But the entire CBS line-up continues to skew particularly older, “The Good Wife” is ending, and “CSI: Cyber” is not worthy of a renewal for next season. In other words, CBS has work to be done on Sunday next season.

    In time period premiere news, ABC drama “The Family” was DOA at a mere 2.2/ 3 in the household overnights from 9-10 p.m., which was 45 percent below year-ago drama occupant “Secrets & Lies” (4.0/ 6 on 3/07/15) and 49 percent below the series premiere last Thursday at 9 p.m. (4.3/ 7). Although the return of lead-out “Quantico” perked up by 23 percent in the overnights, a 2.7/ 5 at 10 p.m. (#3) was still a series low. Note to the networks: these long hiatuses are not beneficial to these scripted dramas.

    Earlier in the evening on ABC was a repeat of “Once Upon a Time” (#4: 1.8/ 3) into a 2.7/. 4 (#3) for an original installment of the deteriorating (and just renewed) drama in its regularly scheduled time period.

    Over at NBC, a two-hour repeat installment of “The Voice” (2.9/ 5 from 7-9 p.m.) led into a two-hour edition of “Dateline” at a 4.2/ 7 from 9-11 p.m. And Fox populated the evening with the combination of NASCAR and relocated “Bordertown” in the 7 p.m. half-hour (the majority of interest was NASCAR, of course), followed by “Bob’s Burgers” (#4: 1.6/ 3), “The Simpsons” (#4: 1.9/ 3), “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving the Universe” (#4: 1.1/ 2), “Family Guy” (#4: 1.8/ 3) and the return of “The Last Man on Earth” (#4: 1.9/ 3) from 7:30-10 p.m. While “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy” will remain staples on the evening next season, no one seems to realize (or report) how dramatically both animated series have declined in the ratings.

  • 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.
