  • 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.

    “NCIS” (CBS), “The Voice” (NBC), “Bull” (CBS), “NCIS: New Orleans” (CBS)

    “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (Fox), “New Girl” (Fox), “Fresh Off the Boat” (ABC), “The Real O’Neals” (ABC), “Scream Queens” (Fox),


    Ratings Breakdown:
    CBS remained the network to beat in the Tuesday overnights with its line-up of dramas “NCIS” (#1: for the night: 9.3 rating/16 share), freshman “Bull” (#1t: 7.6/12) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (#2: 6.6/12). “Bull,” of course, is a shoo-in for a second season renewal. But NBC is a lock for dominance in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demos) care of the fall season-finale of “The Voice,” which scored an ample 7.6/13 in households from 9-11 p.m. Comparably, that was just seven percent below the fall season-ender on the year-ago evening (8.2/13 on 12/15/15), and it was its highest Tuesday overnight rating since Sept. 27 (7.9).

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was ”The Voice” clips show at a second-place 5.5/ 9 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m.

    On ABC, three of the four sitcoms last night – “The Middle” (#3: 4.4/ 7), “American Housewife” (#3: 3.5/ 6) and “Fresh Off the Boat” (#3: 2.6/ 4) from 8-9:30 p.m. – each received an additional episode order for the season. That brings the trio to 23 in total. But sophomore “The Real O’Neals” is waiting for the proverbial axe to swing at this point with a 2.1/ 3 at 9:30 p.m. (#3).

    An encore telecast of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” closed the night for the alphabet net with a mere 1.1/ 2 at 10 p.m. (#3).

    Elsewhere, Fox could not compete with its Tuesday line-up of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 1.6/ 3), “New Girl” (#4: 1.3/ 2) and “Scream” (#4: 0.9/ 1). And The CW ducked the competition with encore telecasts of “The Flash” (#5: 0.8/ 1) and “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” (#5: 0.6/ 1).

  • About the Daily Ratings - Please Read if you are new to 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.
