  • 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
    ABC: 7.2 rating/12 share, NBC: 5.3/ 9, CBS: 4.3/ 7, Fox: 2.2/ 4, CW: 0.7/ 1

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    CW: +75, ABC: + 7, Fox: – 8, NBC: -12, CBS: -16


    Ratings Breakdown:
    ABC, as usual, opened the week on a winning household overnight note care of an 8.2 rating/13 share in households. Comparably, that was 34 percent above the 6.1/10 for competing “The Voice” on NBC. But “The Voice” should have no trouble leading NBC to victory for the night in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demographics). Both “Dancing With the Stars” and “The Voice” were close to year-ago overnight levels.

    In series-finale news, CBS sitcom “Mike & Molly” rose to a season-high 5.3/ 8 at 8:30 p.m. (out of a 5.0/ 8 at 8 p.m. for the first of the two episodes last night). And ABC’s “Castle,” which almost got picked-up for a ninth season, concluded with a 5.2/ 9 at 10 p.m. Comparably, that bested the competition – “Blindspot” on NBC (#2: 3.6/ 6) and “Person of Interest” on CBS (#3: 3.5/ 6) – by 44 percent and 49 percent, respectively. Don’t be fooled about NBC moving “Blindspot” into the Wednesday 8 p.m. hour next season. Remember what happened to former “The Voice” lead-out “Revolution” when NBC made that same move in the fall of 2013?

    In season-finale news was “Jane the Virgin” on The CW at a modest (and typical) 0.7/ 1 in the household overnights at 9 p.m. Lead-in “Reign” scored a 0.6/ 1 at 8 p.m. Assuming The CW keeps sophomore “Supergirl” in the Monday 8 p.m. hour next season, my vote is to move “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Jane the Virgin” to Friday.

    Fox capped off the evening with “Gotham” (#4: 2.7/ 5 at 8 p.m.), which once again will be presented in two half seasons in 2016-17 (and is not the hit Fox would like you to believe) and canceled “Houdini & Doyle” (#5: 1.8/ 3 at 9 p.m.).

  • 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.
