Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 9/1/15

  • FINALS UPDATE: America's Got Talent was up to 2.3 and Hollywood Game Night down to 1.3.
  • On NBC, America's Got Talent had another late-season 2.2, staying way on the upside year-to-year. It led into the ever-inconsistent Hollywood Game Night (1.4), which surged back from last week's low and will be up multiple tenths week-to-week even if it adjusts down.
  • Zoo inched back down to another 1.0 for CBS, while Extreme Weight Loss (0.6) and Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? (0.5) were unable to rebound from last week's lows.

Spotted Ratings Plans for September

September is finally upon us. Doing some reshuffling of the deck this year, so in order to answer questions about some of this site's usual September features, I'm laying out the schedule for the month here.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 8/31/15

  • NBC's American Ninja Warrior (2.1) was back from a week off with a bang, tying its season high again. And it helped Running Wild back to 1.2 after its struggles last week.
  • The CW also had great news with Whose Line Is It Anyway? (0.7) surging to its best number in over a year, and easily its best this summer. Penn and Teller: Fool Us (0.6) was also on the high end.
  • On ABC, Bachelor in Paradise (1.5) gave back last week's crazy surge, but that still left it tied for the second-best number in series history. The Whispers signed off with a 0.7, which was somehow the show's best number in a month. Fox's So You Think You Can Dance (0.8) was the other big loser, inching down to tie its series low.

Cablemetrics: Fear the Walking Dead, The Strain, Public Morals, Switched at Birth

These numbers are current through Thursday, August 27.

  • Plenty has already been said about the huge debut of Fear the Walking Dead (4.93), which enters this table at well over four times the next biggest show. There are definitely a lot of different ways of looking at this. If it were a The Walking Dead episode, it would be just the forty-seventh biggest episode of that series. But if it were a broadcast drama episode, it would be the ninth-biggest one of those in the last four-plus years! (Trailing only six Empires and two Super Bowl lead-outs.) The bottom line is that it's OK to be a tad underwhelmed by this 4.93 in the context of The Walking Dead's history, but TWD is such an incredible anomaly that it will still be unbelievably enormous in any other context.

Spotted Ratings, Weekend Roundup 8/28-8/30/15

  • The few Sunday originals fared well again, with Big Brother (2.1) having a shot to adjust up to tie its season high and Bachelor in Paradise (1.4/1.3) either tying or setting a new Sunday season high.
  • Preseason NFL preemptions mucked up the Friday/Saturday prelims again, but Sunday night's only game was the national broadcast of Cardinals/Raiders on NBC, which averaged a 2.0 from 8:00-11:00. The Fox animated reruns (0.9/0.9/0.7/0.9/0.6) got a boost from the afternoon NFL game, including a preliminary 1.9 in the 7:00 half-hour.
