Ratings News - 13th April 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
    NBC: 6.1 rating/10 share, CBS: 5.7/ 9, ABC: 1.9/ 3, Fox: 1.5/ 2, CW: 0.9/ 1

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Week:
    NBC: +39, Fox: -21, ABC: -24, CBS: -35, CW: -50


    Ratings Breakdown:
    With CBS in repeats, NBC took control of the Tuesday household overnights with an expected clean sweep by half-hour in adults 18-49. Two-hours of “The Voice” scored an ample 6.9 rating/11 share in households from 8-10 p.m. And that led into the series-premiere/preview of scripted drama “Game of Silence” at a second-place 4.5/ 7 at 10 p.m. Comparably, this was 10 percent below regularly scheduled “Chicago Fire” one week earlier (5.0/ 9 on April 6), and the overnight retention for“Game of Silence” out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of “The Voice” (6.8/11) was 66 percent.

    In other words, “Game of Silence,” which debuts as the Thursday 10 p.m. occupant tomorrow, was sampled.

    CBS rearranged the programming deck chairs last night, with a repeat of “NCIS: New Orleans” at 8 p.m. (#2: 5.6/ 9) into a 6.1/10 the encore of “NCIS” at 9 p.m. A second repeat airing of “NCIS: New Orleans” capped off the night with a 5.5/10 at 10 p.m.

    Elsewhere, the results were slim. Repeats of ABC sitcoms “Fresh off the Boat” (#3: 2.5/ 4 at 8 p.m.) and recently introduced “The Real O’Neals” (#3: 1.9/ 3 at 8:30 p.m.) led into typically low-rated overnights for original installments of “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” (#3: 2.1/ 3) and “Beyond the Tank” (#3: 1.5/ 3) from 9-11 p.m. At this point, ABC should really consider ending “Beyond the Tank.”

    On Fox, just renewed “New Girl,” which was a shell of what it once was, opened with a 2.1/ 3 at 8 p.m. (which was 16 percent below the aforementioned encore telecast of “Fresh off the Boat” on ABC). Next was a repeat of on-the-fence “Grandfathered” (#4: 1.2/ 2 at 8:30 p.m.) into “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 1.5/ 2) and “The Grinder” (#4: 1.1/ 2) from 9-10 p.m., whose future is also a question mark.

    The CW populated this second Tuesday in April with two episodes of “iZombie” (including the season finale), which averaged a mere 0.9/ 1 in the household overnights form 8-10 p.m.

  • 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).
