Spotted Ratings, Sunday 10/15/17

  • With a late afternoon NFL lead-in, the CBS lineup started right at 7:30 on the East Coast just like during premiere week. (In fact, there were over 10 minutes of postgame/commercials separating the end of the NFL and 60 Minutes.) After 60 Minutes (2.2), Wisdom of the Crowd (1.2) and NCIS: Los Angeles (1.1/1.0) were both just a little behind what they did with NFL help two weeks ago, while Madam Secretary (0.8) had its first 10:30 episode.
  • Meanwhile, Fox didn't have national NFL help this week. Animated comedies The Simpsons (1.3), Family Guy (1.2) and Bob's Burgers (1.1) along with The Last Man on Earth (0.8) were all reasonably close to what they did on Premiere Sunday, but Ghosted (1.0) was down several notches at 8:30.
  •  It was mostly status quo on ABC, which meant more horrible numbers from The Toy Box (0.4) and Ten Days in the Valley (0.4), surrounding America's Funniest Home Videos (down a tenth to 0.8) and Shark Tank (1.1). NBC's Sunday Night Football was in the general vicinity of 5.0 in the prelims, as it has been pretty consistently since the start of the regular season.

Spotted Ratings, Friday 10/13/17

  • The CW's premiere week ended with dramedies Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (0.2) and Jane the Virgin (0.3) reuniting on Friday, after occupying Monday together two years ago. The 0.2 is a familiar number for Crazy, which had it for all 13 episodes last year, while Jane was preliminarily able to hold onto 0.3 in a Friday move after actually hitting 0.2 a few times on Monday last spring.
  • On ABC, Once Upon a Time held onto last week's 0.7 premiere, but Inhumans (0.6) and 20/20 (0.6) were both down a tenth.
  • CBS' Hawaii Five-0 (1.0) and Blue Bloods (0.9) were both down a notch in the prelims, leading out of another 0.8 from MacGyver.
  • And Fox's Hell's Kitchen (0.8) will hope for a third straight uptick in finals, while The Exorcist (0.4) couldn't even muster up a 0.5 in the prelims this time. NBC's Dateline (0.8/0.9) was down a tenth from last week in both hours with a lower lead-in from a repeat of Law and Order True Crime (0.4).

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 10/12/17

FINALS UPDATE: Grey's Anatomy (2.1), Thursday Night Football (4.6), Will and Grace (1.8) and Gotham (0.9) adjusted up while Thursday Night Football Pregame (1.8) adjusted down.

  • On night four of the CW premiere week, Arrow (0.6) made its first ever timeslot move and now airs out of Supernatural (0.7). It looks like a productive pairing so far, as both of the veterans were down just a tenth from last year's premieres.
  • The second week of the reunited TGIT triumvirate saw Grey's Anatomy (2.1) even and How to Get Away with Murder (1.0) on the rebound, but Scandal (1.2) dropped two tenths from last week's premiere.
  • NBC had a little slippage from hourly anchors Superstore (1.1), Will and Grace (1.8) and Chicago Fire (0.1), but the bottom-of-the-hour comedies The Good Place (1.2) and Great News (1.0) were both even.
  • And Fox had another nice night from The Orville (1.0), bouncing back by a tenth after last week's big drop. A finals adjustment helped Gotham (0.9) to match last week.

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 10/11/17

FINALS UPDATE: The Goldbergs (1.5), Survivor (1.7), The Blacklist (1.0) and Empire (2.0) adjusted up while Dynasty (0.3) adjusted down.

  • It was opening night for the CW's reboot of Dynasty, but in the end it was the returnee Riverdale (0.8) that actually stole the show. The sophomore opened on a new series high by a mile, after premiering at 0.5 and hitting a bunch of 0.3's late last season. Keeping in mind that female-skewers of the CW past like Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill rarely went above a 60 Plus, the network has to be elated with how this went down at least for one night.
    • But considering the Riverdale heat, it was a pretty flat start for Dynasty (0.4). Since it comes from the lesser CBS studio, it is too early to discount it, but a 0.4 -> 0.3 breakdown means it is not even on the upper side of 0.4.
  • At least in the prelims, it was a bit of a shaky night for ABC in the 8/7c hour as The Goldbergs (1.4) and Speechless (1.1) lost two tenths again. But things were steadier from there, with Modern Family (1.8) down one tenth and American Housewife (1.4) and Designated Survivor (0.9) both even.
  • CBS and Fox both saw their lineups stabilize in week three, which was welcome news for the newbie SEAL Team (1.2) between Survivor (1.6) and Criminal Minds (1.1). Empire (1.9) led the night and matched last week, while Star (1.5) remained a big win for Fox as it was actually up a tenth (though it was very close to a 1.5 last week).
  • And NBC had one-tenth slippage from The Blacklist (0.9) and Law and Order: SVU (1.2), but Chicago PD (1.2) was even.
