Ratings News - 20th 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
    CBS: 6.7 rating/11 share, NBC: 5.6/ 9, ABC: 1.9/ 3, CW: 1.7/ 3, Fox: 1.3/ 2

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Week:
    NBC: +14, CBS: +12, CW: -11, Fox: -28, ABC: -34


    Ratings Breakdown:
    CBS remained the network to beat in the Tuesday household overnights care of “NCIS” (#1 for the night, season low 9.1 rating/15 share), “NCIS: New Orleans” (7.5/12) and freshman “Limitless” (#2: 3.6/ 6). But overnight slippage for “Limitless” out of “NCIS: New Orleans” was 52 percent, and it trailed competing “Chicago Fire” (5.3/ 9) on NBC by 32 percent.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was a one-hour edition of “The Voice” at a second-place 6.3/10 at 8 p.m., which should have no trouble topping the night in adults 18-49, followed by freshman “Chicago Med” at a solid (and second place) 5.3/ 8 at 9 p.m. Make room NBC…there should be a fourth “Chicago”-set drama next season in the form of “Chicago Law.”

    In series-premiere news, CW drama “Containment” opened with a 1.2/ 2 (#4) in the household overnights at 9 p.m., which was 33 percent above the season-finale of ‘iZombie” one week earlier (0.9/ 1 on April 12). But overnight retention out of lead-in “The Flash” (#3t”: 2.2/ 3 at 8 p.m.) was lacking at 55 percent.

    Elsewhere, a repeat of “Fresh off the Boat” on ABC (#3: 2.3/ 4) led into recent sitcom entry “The Real O’Neals” at a 2.2/ 3 (#3t) at 8:30 p.m. From a compatibility standpoint, “The Real O’Neals” is worthy of a second season renewal. Next was “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” at a 2.0/ 3 (#3) at 9 p.m., followed by struggling “Beyond the Tank” at a distant third-place 1.5/ 2 at 10 p.m. Unfortunately, the “sharks” are not always a guarantee of success.

    Fox finish last with its sitcom line-up of just renewed “New Girl” (#5: 1.6/ 5), “Grandfathered” (#5: 1.3/ 2), the season-finale of also renewed “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 1.3/ 2) and “The Grinder” (#4t, 1.1/ 2).

  • 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.
