Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 10/16/18

FINALS UPDATE: The Conners (2.4), The Voice (1.8) and The Flash (0.7) adjusted up while Black-ish (1.0) and Splitting Up Together (0.9) adjusted down.

  • Roseanne spin-off The Conners (2.3) brought a spark to ABC Tuesday, but it fell behind the low point of the Roseanne revival (which ended on a 2.5 in May). It was unable to top The Big Bang Theory's premiere (2.5) for the top comedy episode of the season to date, though it still tied last week's TBBT for second best.
  • Following The Conners was new comedy The Kids Are Alright (1.4), which got about what you would expect from a typical episode of The Middle with the big lead-in last year. Black-ish (1.1) was a little down from its late spring ratings last year, while sophomore Splitting Up Together (1.0) managed to tie its finale. At 10/9c was the launch of older-skewing Nathan Fillion drama The Rookie (1.0), which tied last year's Kevin (Probably) Saves the World premiere, beat last year's For the People premiere (0.8), and was a notch below where A Million Little Things (1.1) began on Premiere Wednesday.
  • Opposite ABC's return, there was some downward movement on CBS with the NCIS twins (1.2/0.8) surrounding a steady FBI (1.0), and on NBC with The Voice (1.7) and This Is Us (2.2) down a tenth and New Amsterdam (1.2) down two. Fox's The Gifted fell to its first 0.6, and the CW's The Flash (0.6) and Black Lightning (0.3) had somewhat sizable post-premiere drops.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 10/15/18

FINALS UPDATE: Magnum P.I. (0.9) and Bull (0.8) adjusted up while Dancing with the Stars (0.9) and 9-1-1 (1.4) adjusted down.

  • CBS' Magnum P.I. took an unwelcome dip to 0.8 in week four, but comedies The Neighborhood (1.1) and Happy Together (0.9) managed to stabilize in their third airings. After adjusting up to 0.8 last week, Bull was back at a preliminary 0.7 this time.
  • Things look pretty steady elsewhere on the big four with ABC's Dancing with the Stars (1.0) and The Good Doctor (1.1), NBC's The Voice (1.9) and Manifest (1.5) and Fox's The Resident (1.0) and 911 (1.5). Monday Night Football preemptions (which appear to be on ABC and Fox?) could make a minor impact.
  • The CW’s rollout continued with the move of Arrow (0.4) over to Monday. It was down noticeably from last year’s premiere (0.6) but even or slightly above what it was doing late last season. It was accompanied by a low-rated Constantine special (0.2).

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 10/14/18

FINALS UPDATE: Dancing with the Stars: Juniors (0.8), 60 Minutes (1.9), NCIS: Los Angeles (1.0), Sunday Night Football (7.0, +1.0) and Family Guy (0.9) adjusted up while The Alec Baldwin Show (0.3), NFL Overrun (3.5), God Friended Me (1.0), Football Night in America p2 (2.0, -0.6), Football Night in America p3 (3.1, -1.9) and The Simpsons (R) (0.5, -0.5) adjusted down.

  • The CW made its return to regular Sunday night programming with veteran Supergirl (0.5) leading into the series premiere of the Charmed reboot (0.5), back on the night where the original series aired the second half of its run on the WB. Charmed doesn't look like a game-changer for the network's ratings landscape, but if the goal of the game to get renewed, a CBS-produced series starting at 0.5 should have a good chance.
  • ABC finished out its all-unscripted Sunday lineup with a terrible start for The Alec Baldwin Show (0.4) at 10/9c, unable to even match last year's 0.5 start in the slot for Ten Days in the Valley. The rest of the night held up OK for ABC; Shark Tank (0.7) inched up in a return to the 9/8c hour, Dancing with the Stars: Juniors (0.7) matched last week's premiere, and America's Funniest Home Videos (0.9) got a nice bounce in the 7/6c hour (probably benefiting from an early end to the CBS NFL coverage).
  • Speaking of CBS, with that early end to the NFL 60 Minutes (2.1/1.6) was down from two weeks ago despite a Donald Trump interview. God Friended Me (1.1) was up from last week at 8/7c and down two tenths from its NFL night premiere two weeks ago, continuing to stay close to the Wisdom of the Crowd raw numbers track. NCIS: Los Angeles (0.9) also edged up.
  • It was a brutal night on Fox; The Simpsons (1.0), Bob's Burgers (0.9) and Family Guy (0.8) all looked way worse than either of the first two weeks, while Rel took the I Feel Bad route and fell all the way to a horrific 0.5 at 9:30. That came against what looks like a huge game for the NFL on NBC; Chiefs/Patriots prelims are up about 10% from last week and about 20% from the year-ago evening.
