Spotted Ratings, Monday 10/22/18

FINALS UPDATE: Happy Together (0.9) and The Voice (1.9) adjusted up while Dancing with the Stars (1.0) and The Rookie (R) (0.5, -0.2) adjusted down.

  • Disney Night on Dancing with the Stars (1.1/1.0) is eyeing a nice uptick in the prelims, but some to all of that could be wiped out due to Monday Night Football preemption. The Good Doctor took the week off in favor of an encore of The Rookie's pilot (0.7), back in the timeslot Castle occupied for eight years.
  • The CW brought back DC's Legends of Tomorrow (0.3) at a new series low, dropping a tenth from its Arrow (0.4) lead-in.
  • Despite easier competition at 10/9c, NBC's Manifest (1.4) inched down once again, while The Voice (1.8/1.9) was close to last week. 9-1-1 (1.3) was also down a notch on Fox while The Resident clung to 1.0. CBS was also a mix of even and slightly down, with Happy Together (0.8) and Magnum P.I. (0.8) each losing a tenth while the bookends The Neighborhood (1.1) and Bull (0.8) were even.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 10/21/18

FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (5.1, +0.5), The Simpsons (1.3) and Bob's Burgers (1.3) adjusted up while The Alec Baldwin Show (0.3), 60 Minutes (2.3, -0.4), God Friended Me (1.2), Madam Secretary (0.6), Football Night in America p2 (1.6, -0.3), Football Night in America p3 (2.7, -1.0) and The Simpsons (R) (0.8, -0.3) adjusted down.

  • CBS got a second straight national NFL lead-in, but this one looks much bigger than last week's and extended into the 7:30 half hour. 60 Minutes (2.7), God Friended Me (1.3), NCIS: Los Angeles (1.1/1.0) and Madam Secretary (0.7) may be subject to minor downward adjustment since they started about 7 minutes after their listed times.
  • Even without the NFL lead-in, Fox also fared a lot better than last week, as is typical on Treehouse of Horror week for The Simpsons (1.2). But Bob's Burgers (1.2) and Family Guy (1.1) managed to get as much or more of a boost than Simpsons itself, though not much of the heat extended to Rel (0.6) at 9:30.
  • Week two for the CW's return to Sunday drama programming saw Supergirl (0.4) and Charmed (0.4) both inch down from last week's premieres. Stay tuned for the un-roundeds, but the shows were down in the low-to-mid teens percentage-wise in total viewers.
  • And ABC continued trying to crawl out of oblivion with Dancing with the Stars: Juniors (0.8) matching last week's final (which adjusted up from a prelim 0.7) and Shark Tank (0.8) on the uptick for a second straight week at 9/8c. With Kim Kardashian as the guest, The Alec Baldwin Show could only tie last week's preliminary 0.4 and will hope to avoid a downward adjustment this time.

FINALS UPDATE: Last Man Standing (1.3) adjusted up.

  • With a World Series preemption coming next week, Last Man Standing (1.2) and The Cool Kids (0.9) each took a bit of a dip in their fourth weeks, hitting new season lows. The competing comedies on ABC made up a teeny bit of ground, as Fresh Off the Boat (0.6) and Speechless (0.5) were both on the uptick.
  • Things got uglier for season four of Blindspot, which fell to its first 0.4 in week two, while Midnight, Texas is poised to take over for the 9/8c hour of Dateline (0.6) next week. And on CBS, MacGyver (0.7) inched back behind the net's other two dramas (0.8/0.8).

FINALS UPDATE: Single Parents (0.9) and Chicago PD (1.1) adjusted down.

  • On ABC, it was a rough night for anchor The Goldbergs (1.1), which would be down two tenths and at a new low if it stays there. Modern Family (1.3) was down one tenth, while American Housewife (1.0), Single Parents (1.0) and A Million Little Things (0.8) all held on.
  • Elsewhere, there was some separation at 8/7c as a steady Empire (1.6) pulled ahead of a down Survivor (1.4) for the nightly lead. CBS dramas SEAL Team (0.8) and Criminal Minds (0.7) were back down a notch, as was Star (1.2) on Fox and the first two of NBC's Chicago dramas (1.2/1.3/1.2).
  • On the CW, Riverdale (0.4) dropped a tenth from last week's premiere, while All American hung at 0.2 in its second week. (It was down about 10% in total viewers from last week.)

    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.
