Ratings News - 28th 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.

    Note: The following overnight averages exclude the Houston and Denver markets.

    Household Rating/Share
    Fox: 5.3 rating/8 share, CBS: 4.4/ 7, ABC: 3.6/ 6, NBC: 2.6/ 4, CW: 1.4/ 2

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    Fox: no change, CW: -12, CBS: -19, ABC: -20, NBC: -50

    Ratings Breakdown:
    Led by “Empire, Fox topped the Wednesday overnights with a 0.9 household rating point advantage over second-place CBS. “Empire” scored a 7.0 rating/11 share from 9-10 p.m., doubling lead-in “Rosewood” (#3: 3.5/ 6 at 8 p.m.).

    Addictive “Survivor” on CBS remained a force to reckon with at a dominant 5.8/10 at 8 p.m., which was four percent above the 5.6/ 9 on the year-ago evening. Next on the Eye next was a repeat of veteran “Criminal Minds” at a third-place 3.3/ 5 at 9 p.m., followed by recently introduced spin-off “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” at a first-place 4.2/ 7 at 10 p.m. While “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” did build from the 9:30 p.m. portion of the “Criminal Minds” encore (3.1/ 5) by 35 percent, it was still 12 percent below “CSI: Cyber” on the year-ago evening (4.8/ 8 on 4/28/15).

    On NBC, struggling medical drama “Heartbeat” (#4: 2.9/ 5) was 12 percent below a repeat of “Chicago PD” in this time period on the year-ago evening (3.3/ 5 on 4/28/15). And it led into second-run episodes of “Law & Order: SVU” (#4: 2.5/ 4) and “Chicago PD” (#3: 2.6/ 4) from 9-11 p.m.

    Elsewhere, tops for the night on ABC was underrated “The Middle” at a second-place 4.6/ 8 in the 8 p.m. half-hour. And that led into “The Goldbergs” at a 4.1/ 7 at 8:30 p.m. (#2), followed by a repeat of “Modern Family” (#2: 3.6/ 6), “black-ish” (#32: 3.3/ 5) and on-the-fence “Nashville” at a 2.9/ 5 (#2) at 10 p.m. My prediction is ABC will order 13-new episodes for a final season of “Nashville.” I also think either “The Middle” or “The Goldbergs” will move to Tuesday next season.

    The CW had nothing unusual to report with its pairing of “Arrow” (#5: 1.6/ 2) and “Supernatural” (#5: 1.2/ 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.
