Spotted Ratings, Friday 2/24/17

  • ABC's Shark Tank (1.3) and Shark Tank-themed 20/20 (1.0) both upticked as the show passed the much-promoted $100 million in deals milestone. Earlier in the night, Last Man Standing (1.1) will hope for a second straight upward finals adjustment to match last week, while Dr. Ken (0.9) bounced back from last week's low.
  • We've seen the best and the worst of MacGyver in the last two weeks, and this week (1.1) it was back to the middle of that range. Hawaii Five-0 (1.1) inched down and Blue Bloods (0.8) was a repeat.
  • The other three networks were steady across the board: NBC with Grimm (0.8) / Emerald City (0.6) / Dateline (0.8), Fox with Rosewood (0.6) and Sleepy Hollow (0.5), and the CW with The Vampire Diaries (0.4) and Reign (0.2).

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 2/23/17

  • It was a disappointing night for The Blacklist franchise, with The Blacklist: Redemption launching to a mere 0.8 (below the mothership's series low) at 10/9c. It led out of The Blacklist, which hung at its usual 0.9 in a special 9/8c edition; any benefit it may have seen from the earlier hour was seemingly cancelled out by the weak and incompatible Powerless (0.7) lead-in. The closest thing to a bright spot for NBC was Superstore, which hung on to a 1.1 at 8/7c.
  • On ABC, How to Get Away with Murder (1.5) had a strong end to its season, growing by two tenths and actually beating last season's 1.4 finale. It led out of slightly down Grey's Anatomy (2.0).
  • After pretty much hanging steady for the last three weeks, it was a brutal episode five for Riverdale (0.3), down a full tenth from last week even in the un-rounded. Supernatural (0.6) also ticked down for the CDub.
  • When The Big Bang Theory (2.8) took a big dip last week, the lead-out comedies held on pretty well, but this time all three (1.5/1.4/1.2) shed a tenth. 
  • And on Fox, MasterChef Junior (1.2) bounced back a bit after last week's drop.

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 2/22/17

FINALS UPDATE: The Goldbergs (1.8), Speechless (1.6) and Lethal Weapon (1.4) adjusted up.

  • After an already DOA premiere last week, things got much worse in week two for CBS' Doubt (0.6), which fell to less than half the demo of its Criminal Minds (1.3) lead-in. (And a 0.6 -> 0.5 breakdown means it's actually south of an un-rounded 0.60.) Throw out the Saturday editions of Ransom, and it is tied with a few Elementary episodes as CBS' lowest-rated scripted episode of the season. It will be interesting to see if this situation prompts a quick action out of CBS.
  • On ABC, 8:00 comedies The Goldbergs (1.7) and Speechless (1.5) inched down, Modern Family (2.0) was even, Black-ish (1.6) up a tenth and Match Game (0.9) steady.
  • Fox had another immediate post-renewal downtick with Lethal Weapon (1.3), but not so with Star (1.2).
  • NBC saw Law and Order: SVU (1.3) inch down between even Blindspot and Chicago PD (1.3), but even at 0.8 is not a good thing for Blindspot.
  • And on the CW, Arrow (0.5) is eyeing a new series low in the prelims, but The 100 continued to cling for dear life to a 0.4.

Best Case/Worst Case: The Blacklist: Redemption

Best Case/Worst Case lays out possible scenarios for broadcast primetime TV seasons yet to premiere. Here's what's premiering tonight!

Cablemetrics: The Detour, Big Little Lies, Crashing, Bates Motel, Billions

These numbers are current through Tuesday, February 21.

  • TBS had big news on Tuesday from its sophomore comedy The Detour, which returned with a new series high 0.57 at 10:00 before dropping to 0.46 (still even with the second half of last year's premiere) at 10:30.
  • The star-studded HBO miniseries Big Little Lies opened with a 0.31 same-day demo rating. That merely put it at the high end of recent modest HBO premieres like The Young Pope (0.30), Vinyl (0.25) and The Night Of (0.26, though again that number was not really indicative of what it did in future episodes). It led into a comedy hour of Girls (0.27), which has continued to trend well in its final season, and newbie Crashing (0.17).

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 2/21/17

  • NBC's last Tuesday without The Voice saw The Wall go out with a 1.4 rating, leading into one-tenth upticks for This Is Us (2.5) and Chicago Fire (1.6).
  • On CBS, NCIS (1.6) and NCIS: New Orleans (1.1) were both down after last week's crossover, with the mothership (preliminarily) hitting a new low. They surrounded Bull, which posted its fourth straight 1.3.
  • ABC's American Housewife (1.4) ticked down, but the 9/8c comedies Fresh Off the Boat (1.1) and The Real O'Neals (0.9) each inched up from last week's Valentine's Day lows. Agents of SHIELD headed into hiatus with its fifth 0.6 in the last six episodes.
  • Fox saw an uptick for New Girl (1.0), but The Mick (0.9) will need some finals help to avoid a new low, and Bones (0.7) was down as well.
  • And the CW's The Flash (1.0) and Legends of Tomorrow (0.6) were back from a week off and both shed a tenth in the prelims.
