    THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2016

    Household Rating/Share
    CBS: 4.9 rating/8 share, ABC: 4.8/ 8, NBC: 3.1/ 5, Fox: 2.1/ 3, CW: 1.0/ 2

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Week:
    CW: +11, ABC: -16, CBS and NBC: -18 each, Fox: -19


    Ratings Breakdown:
    CBS scored a Thursday overnight victory, inching past second-place ABC by one-tenth of a household rating point. But the main observation is the lack of success for any of the recently introduced Thursday night network entries.

    In week two news, NBC reality/competition “Strong” did not live up to its title with a fourth-place 2.0/ 3 in households at 8 p.m. Comparably, that was nine percent below the already anemic 2.2/ 4 opener one week earlier, and that translated into just 3.27 million viewers and a 0.8 rating/3 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data.

    Also in week two was Fox reality/competition “American Grit” at a lowly 1.4/ 2 in the overnights at 9 p.m. Comparably, that was one-tenth of a rating point below the 1.5/ 2 premiere one week earlier, which resulted in just 2.35 million viewers and a 0.8/ 3 in the demo (based on the Live + Same Day data). And the household retention out of lead-in “Bones” (#3: 2.9/ 5 at 8 p.m.) was just 48 percent.

    Episode three of NBC drama “Game of Silence,” meanwhile, scored a series-low 2.3/ 4 (#3) at 10 p.m., which dipped from lead-in “The Blacklist” (#2: 5.0/ 8 at 9 p.m.) by a significant 54 percent. One year earlier, “Dateline” averaged a 3.9/ 7 in the time period.

    Recent CBS entry “Rush Hour” was also lacking, with a 2.8/ 5 at 10 p.m. a considerable 43 percent below the 4.9/ 9 for “Elementary” on the year-ago evening. Comparably, “Rush Hour” dropped from lead-in “2 Broke Girls” (#3: 4.3/ 7 at 9:30 p.m.) by 35 percent.

    Tops for the night, of course, was “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS at a 9.2/16 at 8 p.m. And that led into a 5.2/ 9 (#2) for sophomore “The Odd Couple” at 8:30 p.m., which declined by 43 percent. Next on the Eye net was must see “Mom,” another standout installment, at a dominant 5.3/ 9 in the 9 p.m. half-hour. Note to the Emmy voters: “Mom” belongs on the list of Outstanding Comedy Series. It is time.

    Elsewhere, ABC had a typical Thursday in the household overnights care of “Grey’s Anatomy” (#2: 6.0/10), “Scandal” (#2: 4.9/ 8) and freshman “The Catch” (#1: 3.7/ 6). And “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” (#5: 1.4/ 2 at 8 p.m.) led into a 0.8/ 3 for “The 100” on The CW – also overnight business as usual.

  • 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.
