  • 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), “Bull” (CBS)

    -Honorable Mention:
    “The Middle” (ABC), “The Wall” (NBC), “Chicago Fire” (NBC), “Chicago PD” (NBC)

    -Losers (excluding repeats):
    “New Girl” (Fox), “Bones” (Fox), “The Real O’Neals” (ABC), “No Tomorrow” (CW)


    Ratings Breakdown:
    It was a typically easy Tuesday overnight household victory for CBS, which featured the regularly scheduled combination of “NCIS” (9.7 rating/15 share), “Bull” (7.2/11) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (6.1/11). The three dramas finished first in households in each of the six half-hours.

    NBC got some promising news care of the Tuesday 8 p.m. time period debut of game show “The Wall,” which at a second-place 4.1/ 7 jumped by 32 percent from the 3.1 household rating for the prior night’s 10 p.m. preview. Comparably, “The Wall” should be competitive in the hour in adults 18-49 (and all the key demos).

    “The Wall” led into the crossover of “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD,” which “Chicago Fire” rising to a 4.8/ 8 at 9 p.m., building from the 8:30 p.m. portion of “The Wall” (4.3/ 7) by 12 percent. “Chicago PD” matched the overnight performance of “Chicago Fire,” also with a 4.8/ 8 (#2) at 10 p.m. Given the stability of the franchise, keep a positive eye (or two) on upcoming “Chicago Law” in midseason.

    The second time period premiere last night was Fox sitcom “The Mick,” which scored a 2.3/ 4 (#2) at 8:30 p.m., building from relocated lead-in “New Girl” (#4: 1.8/ 3 at 8 p.m.) by 28 percent. Year-ago time period occupant “Grandfathered” scored a similar 2.2/ 3 at 8:30 p.m. The 12th, and final, season of “Bones” was stalled at the gate, with a 2.3/ 4 at 9 p.m. Historically, “Bones” could very well make the record books with the most number of different time periods than any other series.

    ABC featured its two-hour sitcom rotation from 8-10 p.m.: “The Middle” (#2: 4.5/ 7), “American Housewife” (#3: 3.6/ 6), “Fresh Off the Boat” (#3: 2.9/ 5) and “The Real O’Neals” (#3t, 2.2/ 4). The weak link remains sophomore “The Real O’Neals.” And an encore telecast of special “David Blaine’s Magic” capped off the night with a 1.6/ 3 at 10 p.m.

    The CW featured a repeat of “The Flash” (#5: 0.7/ 1) into a mere 0.4/ 1 for another burn-off installment of freshman drama “No Tomorrow,” which has clearly earned its cancellation stripes.

    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).
