Ratings News - 6th 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:
    CBS led this first Thursday in May, besting No. 2 ABC by seven percent in the household overnights. Tops for the evening, of course, was “The Big Bang Theory” at a 9.0 rating/16 share in the 8 p.m. half-hour. But a 5.1/ 9 for sophomore “The Odd Couple” at 8:30 p.m. (which begins a second weekly airing Monday at 9:30 p.m. next week) slipped by a considerable 43 percent.

    Next on CBS was “Mom” at a dominant 5.4/ 8 at 9 p.m., which built from “The Odd Couple” by six percent, followed by “2 Broke Girls” at a third-place 4.2/ 7 at 9:30 p.m. and recent entry “Rush Hour” at a 3.1/ 5 (#2) at 10 p.m. There is no reason to expect a second season renewal for “Rush House.”

    ABC had nothing unusual to report in the household overnights with its combination of “Grey’s Anatomy” (#2: 5.8/10), “Scandal” (#2: 4.8/ 7) and recent Shonda Rhimes entry “The Catch” (#1: 3.4/ 6), which was on par with year-ago time period occupant “American Crime.” Given how poorly ABC has fared in the new scripted drama department this season, a second season of “The Catch” is very possible.

    Next was NBC, which will have to repair the Thursday 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET hours next season. Recent reality/competition “Strong” did not live up to its title, with a distant fourth-place 1.8/ 3 at 8 p.m. Next was “The Blacklist,” which perked up to a third-place 4.5/ 7 at 9 p.m. But recent drama addition “Game of Silence,” despite the positive reviews, slipped to a 2.3/ 4 at 10 p.m. Comparably, that was 32 percent below “Dateline” on the year-ago evening (3.4/ 6 on 5/6/15). The logical solution for the Thursday 10 p.m. hour on NBC next season is recent occupant “Shades of Blue.”

    Elsewhere, Fox’s “Bones” (#3: 2.8/ 5 at 8 p.m.), which is concluding next season, led into a mere 1.2/ 2 for waiting-to-be canceled “American Grit” at 9 p.m. And “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” on The CW scored a typical 1.3/ 2 in the household overnights at 9 p.m. into a modest 0.8/ 1 for “The 100” 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.
