Ratings News - 7th 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
    Fox: 7.4 rating/12 share, CBS: 4.7/ 8, ABC: 4.0/ 7, NBC: 2.7/ 4, CW: 1.4/ 2

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    CW: +100, Fox: +45, ABC: no change, CBS: -18, NBC: -50


    Ratings Breakdown:
    Fox stood well above the Wednesday competition care of the second-to-last episode of “American Idol” (#1: 7.3 rating/12 share) and “Empire” (#1 for the night: 7.7/12), which slipped by seven percent from its 8.3/13 return one week earlier. Comparably, that translated into 12.45 million viewers and a 4.8 rating/15 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data. Fox would be wise next season to move “Empire” to Wednesday at 8 p.m. into the upcoming spinoff tentatively titled “Star.”

    In the distant No. 3 spot was CBS care of warhorse “Survivor” (#2: 5.4/ 9), which is looking at another approximate 2.0 rating in adults 18-49 (based on the Live + Same Day data), and two episodes of recent entry “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” (9 p.m.: #2: 4.7/ 7; 10 p.m.: #1, 4.3/ 7). While the overnights for “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” are respectable, the results are more in tune with a typical older-skewing Eye network crime solver.

    In its third Wednesday 8 p.m. telecast, NBC medical drama “Heartbeat” sunk to a series-low 2.7/ 5 in the household overnights, which was 18 percent below the 3.3/ 5 last week. This is also a notable decline from former time period occupant “The Mysteries of Laura,” which is still in contention for a third season renewal.

    Next on NBC was a repeat granddaddy “Law & Order: SVU” (#4: 2.7/ 4 at 9 p.m.), which by next season will be the third longest running scripted drama in the history of television (behind “Gunsmoke” and parent “Law & Order”). An encore telecast of “Chicago PD” capped off the night for the Peacock net with a third-place 2.7/ 5 at 10 p.m.

    Elsewhere, ABC scored a typical Wednesday in the overnights care of sitcoms “The Middle” (#3: 4.8/ 8), “The Goldbergs” (#3: 4.2/ 7), “Modern Family” (#2: 5.4/ 8) and “black-ish” (#3: 3.8/ 5), and on-the-fence drama “Nashville” (#2: 3.0/ 5). And The CW populated the night with “Arrow” (#5: 1.7/ 3) and “Supernatural” (#5: 1.1/ 2), which were also at typical overnight levels. Amazingly, “Supernatural” will be heading into season 12 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). 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
