Ratings News - 2nd 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.

    Ratings Breakdown:
    It was an easy Sunday overnight victory for CBS, which bested No. 2 NBC in households by a considerable 61 percent. But NBC will certainly narrow the gap in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demographics) thanks to “Little Big Shots,” which scored a healthy 5.9/10 in the household overnights from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, that was 44 percent above a Sunday 8 p.m. edition of “Dateline” on the year-ago evening (4.1/ 7 on 5/02/15), and it led into the combination of 9-10 p.m. sitcoms “The Carmichael Show” (#2: 2.8/ 4) and “Crowded” (#4: 2.1/ 3). A 10 p.m. edition of “Dateline” followed with a dominant 3.9/ 7, which was 86 percent above lead-in “Crowded.”

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was a repeat of “Little Big Shots” at a third-place 3.1/ 5 from 7-8 p.m.

    CBS, meanwhile, opened with older-skewing granddaddy “60 Minutes” at a first-place 7.5/13 at 7 p.m., followed by the 8-11 p.m. drama rotation of “Madam Secretary” (#1: 7.1/12), “The Good Wife” (#1: 6.4/10) and “Elementary” (#2: 3.6/ 6). Critically acclaimed “The Good Wife” concludes its seven season run next Sunday.

    In the specials department was the “American Country Countdown Awards” on Fox, which could not compete with a 2.3/ 4 in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m. Earlier in the evening on Fox were encore telecasts of animated “Bob’s Burgers” (#4: 1.1/ 2) and “The Simpsons” (#4: 1.0/ 2) from 7-8 p.m.

    ABC, which needs to revamp deteriorating Sunday next season, featured the rotation of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#2: 3.4/ 6), “Once Upon a Time” (#3: 2.7/ 4), waiting-to-be-canceled “The Family” (#4: 2.3/ 4) and overrated “Quantico” (#3: 2.4/ 4).

  • 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.
