    SUNDAY, APRIL 10, 2016

    Household Rating/Share
    CBS: 6.6 rating/11 share, NBC: 4.3/ 7, ABC: 2.5/ 4, Fox: 1.3/ 2

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    NBC: +43, CBS: – 8, ABC: -22, Fox: -24


    Ratings Breakdown:
    Dominant CBS got a boost from the 2016 Masters Tournament, which bled into primetime with a 9.2 rating/16 share in the household overnights in the 7 p.m. half-hour. This means that results for the Eye net programming roster is approximate and appears as follows by half-hour:

    7:30 p.m. “60 Minutes”: 8.4/14 (#1)
    8:00 p.m. “60 Minutes”: 8.7/14 (#1)
    8:30 p.m. “Madam Secretary”: 6.8/11 (#2)
    9:00 p.m. “Madam Secretary”: 6.8/10 (#1)
    9:30 p.m. “Elementary”: 4.4/ 7 (#1)
    10:00 p.m. “Elementary”: 4.3/ 7 (#1)
    10:30 p.m. “Elementary: 4.0/ 7 (#1)

    Second-place NBC was on the map care of bona fide hit “Little Big Shots,” hosted by Steve Harvey, which scored a 7.2/12 in the household overnights from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, that was an increase of six percent from the 6.8/11 one week earlier. A stronger “Little Big Shots” resulted in week to week overnight growth for sitcoms “Carmichael” (#2: 3.5/ 5) and “Crowded” (#2: 2.7/ 4) from 9-10 p.m. and “Dateline” (#2: 3.2/ 6) at 10 p.m.

    In the 7 p.m. hour on NBC last night was an encore telecast of “Little Big Shots” at a second-place 3.6/ 6.

    Elsewhere, the overnight results were nothing to boast about. Veteran “America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC (#3: 3.0/ 5 at 7 p.m.) led into the deteriorating combination of “Once Upon a Time” (#3: 2.4/ 4), recent drama entry “The Family” (#3: 2.4/ 4) and “Quantico” (#3: 2.5/ 5) from 8-11 p.m. Don’t be fooled in think that “Quantico” is a big hit. It is not.

    Fox; meanwhile, barely registered with its 7-10 p.m. line-up of “Bordertown” (#4: 0.8/ 1), “Cooper Barrett Controls the Universe” (#4: 0.7/ 1), granddaddy “The Simpsons” (#4: 1.5/ 2), “Bob’s Burgers” (#4: 1.4/ 2), a repeat of “Family Guy” (#4: 1.5/ 2) and recently renewed “The Last Man on Earth” (#4: 1.8/ 3). At this point, there is no reason to believe “Bordertown” or “Cooper Barrett Controls the Universe” will be returning next season.

  • 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).
