Ratings News - 11th May 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: 7.5 rating/12 share, NBC: 5.6/ 9, ABC: 2.0/ 3, CW: 1.7/ 3, Fox: 1.4/ 2

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    NBC: +30, CBS: no change, CW: -11, CW: -26, ABC: -56


    Ratings Breakdown:
    CBS stood well above the competition in the Tuesday overnights with its combination of “NCIS” (#1 for the night: 9.9 rating/17 share), spin-off “NCIS: New Orleans” (#1: 7.9/.12) and the final season of “Person of Interest” (#2: 4.8/ 8), which is now airing two times per week. Both “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans” conclude for the season next week.

    Fox’s Tuesday night comedies ended for the season (or in the case of “Grandfathered” and “The Grinder,” potentially the series) with minimal interest. “New Girl” opened with a 1.7/ 3 in the household overnights at 8 p.m. (#4), followed by “Grandfathered” (#5: 1.3/ 2), the season-finale of a 9 p.m. edition of “New Girl” (#4: 1.6/ 2) and “The Grinder” (#4: 1.2/ 2). My prediction is that both “Grandfathered” and “The Grinder” are exciting.

    NBC finished a comfortable second last night in households with its line-up of “The Voice” (#2: 6.2/10), which will win the 8 p.m. hour in the key demos with ease, “Chicago Med” (#2: 5.5/ 8) and “Chicago Fire” (#2: 4.8/ 8).

    Elsewhere, ABC’s 8-10 p.m. combination of sitcoms “Fresh Off the Boat” (##: 2.9/ 5) and “The Real O’Neals” (#3: 2.2/ 2) and “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” (#3: 2.2/ 3) led into a mere 1.3/ 2 for a 10 p.m. edition of “BattleBots.” And The CW’s solid “The Flash” (#4: 2.5/ 4) led into a 1.0/ 1 for recent drama entry “Containment,” which dropped by 60 percent.

  • 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.
