Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 1/15/19

FINALS UPDATE: New Amsterdam (1.0) adjusted down.

  • After 0.5, 0.3 and 0.2 for its series premieres in the fall, the CW added a 0.4 to the mix with new drama Roswell, New Mexico (0.4). It was a couple tenths behind its The Flash lead-in (0.6), making it a much less impressive premiere than what Black Lightning did here a year ago, but it was at the high end of what Black Lightning season two has been doing in the fall.
  • NBC completed its winter lineup with the return of This Is Us (2.0) at 9/8c; while it was down a notch from the fall finale, it seemed to help out Ellen's Game of Games (1.7), which grew two tenths from last week's season premiere. New Amsterdam (1.1) was up a notch at 10/9c, matching what it was doing after TIU in the late fall.
  • ABC was down in the 8/7c hour with The Conners (1.3) and especially with The Kids Are Alright (0.8), but Black-ish (0.8) and Splitting Up Together (0.7) matched last week's address-delayed ratings. Back to airing on time, The Rookie (0.7) was up a tenth.
  • CBS' NCIS (1.3) grew a tenth from last week, while the delayed returns of FBI (1.0) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.8) both matched their fall finales. Fox's Lethal Weapon stayed at 0.7 while The Gifted dropped back to 0.5.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 1/14/19

FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelor (1.7), The Neighborhood (1.3) and Magnum P.I. (0.8) adjusted up while Bull (0.7) adjusted down.

  • Fox got a nice premiere rating for 9/8c genre drama The Passage (1.3), if not quite as strong as last January's 9-1-1 launch. On most networks, Passage would be starting with a lot of room to work with; on new Fox, it may have to hold up quite well from here. Its lead-in The Resident (1.1) tied with the season premiere for its highest rating this season.
  • In the unscripted wars, The Bachelor (1.6) upticked from last week's premiere and pulled to within a tenth of America's Got Talent: The Champions (1.7), which was down a notch. But ABC pulled even or maybe even a bit ahead for the full nightly average; The Good Doctor (1.2) returned with an uptick at 10/9c and handily defeated Manifest (0.9), which saw its run of 1.1's come to a crashing halt.
  • CBS had its own best-since-premiere rating with The Neighborhood (1.2), and an OK send-off for Happy Together (0.9) at 8:30. But Magnum P.I. (0.7) had a bitter start to 2019, returning on a new low as it prepares to air after the AFC Championship game on Sunday.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 1/13/19

FINALS UPDATE: NFL Overrun 7:30 (10.1, +0.7) adjusted up while The Simpsons (3.2, -0.6), Bob's Burgers (2.1), Family Guy (1.7) and Rel (1.0) adjusted down.

  • Fox had postseason NFL (10.7/9.4) running slightly into the 8:00 hour, so there may be some downward adjustments for The Simpsons (3.8), Bob's Burgers (2.2), Family Guy (1.8) and Rel (1.1). We'll see if the comedies can match or beat last year's ratings on the year-ago evening (3.3/2.1/1.8/1.2).
  • With no Golden Globes competition, it was a breakout night for America's Funniest Home Videos (1.3) and Shark Tank (1.1) on ABC, as both built significantly on last week's already season high levels.
  • The CBS dramas (0.9/0.9/0.6) all matched last week, while the CW did well by its standards with the Critics Choice Awards (0.2/0.4/0.4).

Spotted Ratings, Friday 1/11/19

FINALS UPDATE: MacGyver (0.7), Whose Line Is It Anyway? (R) (0.2) and Whose Line Is It Anyway? (R) (0.2) adjusted down.

  • Like on Thursday, the winter bounce seemed to come a week late for much of Friday. Fox comedies Last Man Standing (1.2) and The Cool Kids (1.0) both surged by two tenths from last week, while Hell's Kitchen (0.8) was up a notch. CBS dramas MacGyver (0.8) and Hawaii Five-0 (0.9) also grew by a tenth.
  • And in its first episode of the winter, NBC's Blindspot rose to 0.6 for the first time all season, joined by another 0.6 at 9/8c from The Blacklist.
  • The exception to the upward momentum was ABC, where Fresh Off the Boat (0.7) and Speechless (0.5) matched last week, while another two-hour 20/20 (0.6) couldn't hold onto last week's big surge. And the CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was back from a month off with a return to 0.1.

FINALS UPDATE: Mom (1.4) adjusted down.

  • After five years on Fox, Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.2) made the move to NBC, airing at 9/8c after week two of The Titan Games (1.6). It was a nice week two hold for Titan, and Brooklyn had its highest raw ratings in over two calendar years (since New Year's Day 2017). It's a Plus level the show almost never saw on Fox without big NFL help (though it's actually rather close to the series premiere, which had a 138 in September 2013).
  • The Good Place (0.9) went to 9:30, where it was head-to-head with new CBS comedy Fam (1.2). The CBS newbie actually managed to outrate the Murphy Brown premiere (1.1) from the fall, though it also had more help from a season high edition of Mom (1.4). Earlier in the evening, the winter bounces came a week late for the Sheldon-verse, as The Big Bang Theory (2.4) and Young Sheldon (1.9) each piled another couple tenths on top of their winter premiere ratings from last week.
  • On Fox, The Orville (0.7) showed some much-needed life in its second Thursday airing of the season, growing by just over a full tenth from last week in the un-rounded prelims. ABC's Truth and Lies special on Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton (0.7) matched last week's JFK, Jr. special.
