Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 12/6/16

FINALS UPDATE: NCIS (1.8) adjusted up while Agents of SHIELD (0.7) adjusted down.

  • On one of the last remaining days of 2016 with five networks airing all regular lineups, NBC's This Is Us (2.8) was the runaway standout once again, upticking to tie its series high. Its surrounding programs The Voice (1.9) and Chicago Fire (1.7) were both even.
  • It was a rough evening for the ABC comedy lineup, as The Middle (1.4), American Housewife (1.4), Fresh Off the Boat (1.1) and The Real O'Neals (0.8) were all down, and most of them by two tenths. Agents of SHIELD clung to another 0.8 at 10/9c.
  • On CBS, NCIS (1.7) gave back its uptick from the last episode, falling back to a low-end rating, but Bull (1.5) and NCIS: New Orleans (1.2) had typical results.
  • Monday's Supergirl repeats meant this was the first chance to see a CW original the week after the enormous DC crossover. And there was a nice audience left behind for The Flash (1.2), which was still ahead of most of its results from earlier in the fall. No Tomorrow had 0.3 again at 9/8c.
  • And Fox was steady (if still in CW territory) with Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.0), New Girl (0.8) and Scream Queens (0.5).

Cablemetrics: Westworld, The Walking Dead, Shameless, The Royals

These numbers are current through Monday, December 5.

  • After a big penultimate week spike, Westworld followed it up on finale night by only staying flat week-to-week at a 1.02 demo. (However, it did set new highs in both total viewers and the 18-34 demos.) It still goes down as one of the cable elite, but a long wait for season two begins.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 12/5/16

FINALS UPDATE: 2 Broke Girls (1.3) and The Voice (2.1) adjusted up while The Great Christmas Light Fight (1.1) and Conviction (0.6) adjusted down.

  • ABC brought back holiday staple The Great Christmas Light Fight (1.3/1.2) leading into Conviction (0.8) at 10/9c. This would be about the same raw number as last year's Light Fight premiere (1.2) but the network is pending Monday Night Football preemptions.
  • CBS had another solid night from Kevin Can Wait (1.5), but new lows from Man with a Plan (1.2) and 2 Broke Girls (1.2). The network got a big upgrade from a repeat of The Big Bang Theory (1.4) at 9:30, leading into The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (2.1) in the 10/9c hour. After a massive drop last year, the fashion show shed another couple tenths this time.
  • NBC had a fairly typical night with The Voice (2.1/2.0) and Timeless (1.2), while Fox basically matched its usual drama numbers with two-hour special Showtime at the Apollo (1.1). The CW had repeats of Supergirl (0.4/0.3).

Renewology Swings of the Week: The Real O'Neals, Gotham, Once Upon a Time, Pitch

It's time for another edition of Renewology Swings of the Week. Which shows had the best and worst weeks in terms of Renewology odds? These numbers cover Week 11 of the 2016-17 season (November 28-December 4).

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/4/16

FINALS UPDATE: America's Funniest Home Videos (1.0) and Sunday Night Football (6.1) and The OT (4.2) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (1.4) and Bull (R) (0.8) and MacGyver (R) (0.6) and Football Night in America (2.6) and NFL Overrun (5.9) adjusted down.

  • A regrettable fall for drama programming came to an end on ABC Sunday with the fall finale of Once Upon a Time (0.9) and the two-hour season or series finale of Secrets and Lies (0.7), as Once limped to the finish with its third fractional result in the last five episodes.
  • Fox had a national NFL lead-in, and 8:00 comedies The Simpsons (2.4) and Son of Zorn (1.3) did worse than their previous post-overrun numbers this season. However, it didn't stop Family Guy (1.6) and The Last Man on Earth (1.1) from having rather high-end results in the 9:00 hour, despite facing HBO's Westworld finale.
  • CBS didn't have a national overrun and went with repeats of Bull (0.9), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.8) and MacGyver (0.7).
  • NBC's Sunday Night Football had a very low-5 prelim, its second-lowest of the season, but it may get a bit more finals help with a West Coast team playing in the game.

Spotted Ratings, Friday 12/2/16

FINALS UPDATE: 20/20 (1.2) adjusted up while Dr. Ken (0.8) and I Love Lucy Christmas Special (0.8) and Pac-12 Championship Pregame (0.6) and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (0.2) adjusted down.

  • ABC was the only big four network with original scripted programming on Friday, as comedies Last Man Standing (1.1) and Dr. Ken (0.9) returned at pretty normal levels. ABC rounded out the night with an average Shark Tank (1.2) and a well-above average night from 20/20 (1.1).
  • Fox took a rare Friday victory thanks to the Pac-12 Championship Game (1.6/1.7), with a preliminary 1.1 for the pre-game show in the 8:00 hour. The game had a 1.9 when it was last on Fox Friday two years ago.
  • At least in the prelims, the CW had an above-average Friday with The Vampire Diaries (0.4) on the uptick and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend hoping to hang onto its first 0.3 of the season.
  • CBS had its annual hour of colorized I Love Lucy episodes (0.9), down two tenths from last year's special on December 23, leading into repeats of the veteran crime dramas (0.6/0.7).
  • And NBC had high-end results for Caught on Camera (0.7) and Dateline (1.1/1.2).

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 12/1/16

FINALS UPDATE: Thursday Night Football (6.8) and Legends of Tomorrow (1.2) adjusted up while The Great American Baking Show (1.0) and The Great Indoors (1.3) and Thursday Night Football Pregame (2.7) and Supernatural (0.6) adjusted down.

  • ABC began its Thursday dramas' hiatus with the return of The Great American Baking Show (1.1/1.0), which was called The Great Holiday Baking Show in its late fall run last year. It was down a bit from last year's 1.2 premiere. It led out of A Charlie Brown Christmas (1.5), which had a rather soft first showing of the year (down big from last year's 2.0 on a Monday).
  • NBC took its second crack at Thursday Night Football to hugely improved results, with the ratings magnet Dallas Cowboys vaulting the game to an upper-4's prelim. After finals and the NFL Network simulcast are included, this will likely be the season's biggest TNF game, and maybe even pretty close to last week's Thanksgiving primetime game.
  • That may have contributed to a rather soft comedy night on CBS. The Big Bang Theory (3.1) and The Great Indoors (1.4) both matched two weeks ago, but Mom (1.3) and Life in Pieces (1.2) were both weaker. Pure Genius rounded it out with a 0.8, unable to bounce back from its Thanksgiving rating.
  • The CW wrapped up the four-night crossover with Legends of Tomorrow (1.1). It fell from the last couple nights but nearly doubled its usual rating and (like The Flash and Arrow) set a new series high in A18-49+. Supernatural (0.7) was pretty normal at 9/8c.
  • And after getting hugely inflated ratings for Thanksgiving repeats, Rosewood (0.7) and Pitch (0.7) were back to their normal original numbers this week. It was the last 2016 episode for Rosewood, which will move to Friday after the new year.
