    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 second Thursday of 2017 in the household overnights, besting No. 2 ABC by 16 percent. An encore telecast of “The Big Bang Theory” was still the top draw with a 6.2 rating/10 share in the 8 p.m. half-hour. And it led into typical overnight household ratings for sitcoms “The Great Indoors” (#2: 4.4/ 7), “Mom” (#1: 4.8/ 8) and “Life in Pieces” (#2t: 3.8/ 6) from 8:30-10 p.m. While respectable, “The Great Indoors” is yet another example of the Eye net squandering the “Big Bang Theory” lead-in support on a comedy that will probably never be able to stand on its own.

    Canceled drama “Pure Genius” capped off the night for CBS with a third-place 3.5/ 6 at 10 p.m., which trailed competing “The Blacklist” on NBC (#2: 3.6/ 6) by just one-tenth of a rating point. ”The Blacklist,” unfortunately, is no longer the force it once was.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC were sitcoms “Superstore” (#3: 2.9/ 5) and “The Good Place” (#4: 2.5/ 4), which cannot compete with the CBS comedies, and drama “Chicago Med” (#1: 4.4/ 7), which always picks up steam.

    In series premiere news, “My Kitchen Rules” on Fox did not rule in the overnights, with a lackluster 1.8/ 3 (#4) from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, that slipped from lead-in “Hell’s Kitchen” (#3: 2.8/ 5 at 8 p.m.) by 36 percent. And the two reality seasons, on average, trailed two-hours of year-ago time period occupant “American Idol” (6.1/10) by a hefty 62 percent.

    ABC featured the season (or series) finale of “The Great American Baking Show” (#2), which performed well enough to snag a renewal. And it led into two hour special, “Talking the Stage: African American Music and the Stories that Changed America,” at a respectable 3.9/ 7 from 9-11 p.m.

    The CW featured encore telecasts of “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” (0.8/ 1) and “Supernatural” (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.
