Ratings News - 3rd 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
    ABC: 6.9 rating/11 share, NBC: 5.5/ 9, CBS: 4.6/ 7, Fox: 2.2/ 3, CW: 0.7/ 1

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    NBC: – 2, ABC and CBS: -12 each, CW: -22, Fox: -27


    Ratings Breakdown:
    It was overnight Monday business as usual with “Dancing With the Stars” leading ABC to victory in households and “The Voice” expected to lift NBC to dominance in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demographics). “Dancing With the Stars” averaged an 8.3 rating/13 share in households from 8-10 p.m., which was six percent below the 8.8/14 on the year-ago evening. And competing “The Voice” scored a 6.3/10, which was five percent below the 6.6/10 last year. In other words, both are consistent.

    Tops at 10 p.m., however, was the season-finale of “NCIS: Los Angeles” on CBS at a 5.1/ 9, which bested the competition – “Castle” on ABC (#2: 4.2/ 7) and “Blindspot” on NBC (#3: 3.7/ 6) by 21 percent and 38 percent, respectively. Comparably, “Castle,” which is still waiting for an official renewal, slipped by 26 percent from the 5.7/10 on the year-ago week. “Blindspot,” meanwhile, was flat from year-ago time period occupant “The Night Shift.”

    Earlier in the evening on CBS were two episodes of soon-to-conclude sitcom “Mike & Molly” (8 p.m.: #3, 4.6/ 7; 8:30 p.m.: #3: 4.7/ 7), which from a ratings standpoint should not be ending. And a repeat of “The Big Bang Theory” at 9 p.m. (#3: 4.3/ 7) led into the Monday 9:30 p.m. time period debut of “The Odd Couple” (#3: 3.6/ 6), which is now airing twice per week.

    In series premiere news, Fox drama “Houdini and Doyle” was left at the starting gate with a mere 1.8/ 3 in the household overnights from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, this was 31 percent below the season-finale of “Lucifer” one week earlier (2.6/ 4 on April 25). It was 25 percent below the 2.4/ 4 for former time period occupant “The Following” on the year-ago evening. And it dropped from lead-in “Gotham” (2.6/ 4 at 8 p.m.) by 31 percent. Since most new series decline in the vicinity of 10 to 20 percent in week two, I would not get too used to “Houdini and Doyle.”

    The CW capped off the night with its low-rated pairing of “Reign” and “Jane the Virgin,” which each averaged a minute 0.7/ 1 in the household overnights.

  • 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.
