Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 8/16/17

  • NBC's America's Got Talent (2.1) joined the Wednesday fray, winning its first original head-to-head against Big Brother (1.9) on CBS. Talent was a bit below its first Wednesday original last summer, a 2.4 on July 13, but matched the 2.1 for its first Wednesday original after the Olympics.
    • Talent led into the double-episode premiere of late-summer sitcom Marlon (1.3/1.0). Two years ago, similarly scheduled sitcom Mr. Robinson averaged a 1.2/1.0 with a 1.5 lead-in, while The Carmichael Show had a 1.1/0.9 leading out of a 1.6 from Talent.
  • ABC's comedies sat out in favor of the CMA Music Festival (1.0/1.5/1.2) (labelled 'CMA Fest' for short this year). It appears the show will be even or slightly up from the 1.2 it has posted in the last couple years.
  • And after Big Brother, CBS went with a double-pump of Salvation (0.5/0.4) for the second time in three weeks.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 8/15/17

FINALS UPDATE: Somewhere Between (0.3), Hollywood Game Night (1.2), The Flash (R) (0.2) and Legends of Tomorrow (R) (0.2) adjusted down.

  • After a breakout Monday premiere, ABC's Bachelor in Paradise (1.0/1.1) was much lower as it took up shop on its second night. The competition is admittedly tougher on Tuesday, but this is a really wide gulf; last year the Tuesday ratings were usually within a tenth or two of the Monday ratings. It will be interesting to see which version shows up next week.
  • Meanwhile, the timeslot after America's Got Talent (2.8) went back to Hollywood Game Night (1.3), which easily beat all of its Thursday results from earlier in the summer but was still a good bit lower than what World of Dance has been doing in this slot.

Cablemetrics: Game of Thrones, Insecure, Claws, The Sinner

These numbers are current through Monday, August 14.

  • Game of Thrones exploded to another new series high 4.98 on Sunday. As I said on here a few weeks ago, new series highs are nothing new for GoT, but this is the first time in three years that it has hit multiple series highs within the same season. With the finale still ahead, it seems likely that at least one more is coming.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 8/14/17

FINALS UPDATE: Bachelor in Paradise (1.6) adjusted up while The Gong Show (0.7) and Midnight, Texas (0.7) adjusted down.

  • After months of controversy, ABC's Bachelor in Paradise (1.5) returned to healthy ratings, topping its own 1.4 premiere from a year ago and even outrating some of the mid-section of the recently wrapped The Bachelorette season. It led into a special Monday edition of The Gong Show (0.8) at 10/9c, boosting that series to its best numbers since its first couple weeks.
  • On NBC, American Ninja Warrior (1.4) inched back down and narrowly lost the head-to-head with Paradise, while Midnight, Texas clung to 0.8 again at 10/9c.
  • And Fox improved its overall Monday average by expanding So You Think You Can Dance (0.7) to a second hour.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 8/13/17

FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.9) adjusted up while America's Funniest Home Videos (R) (0.8), 60 Minutes (1.0), The Simpsons (R) (0.4), Bob's Burgers (R) (0.5) and Teen Choice Awards (0.5) adjusted down.

  • Several West Coast markets were preempted in the early part of primetime for an NFL preseason game, and CBS' Big Brother (1.9 in the 8:30 half-hour) and Candy Crush (0.6 at 9:30) were delayed by 18 minutes on the East Coast due to golf overrun. Stay tuned for updates!
  • At least in these prelims, ABC's Steve Harvey's Funderdome (0.8) ticked up despite a repeat lead-in from Celebrity Family Feud (0.9), while The $100,000 Pyramid was even at 0.7. Fox had the Teen Choice Awards (0.6/0.5), which were even to narrowly up vs. last year.
