Spotted Ratings, Sunday 11/10/19

  • With a national NFL lead-in, the Fox animation (2.1/0.9/0.8/0.9) got a boost, but may drop in finals since the NFL coverage ran late again. Meanwhile, CBS did not have the national NFL help and tied season lows with God Friended Me (0.6) and NCIS: Los Angeles (0.6), while Madam Secretary managed to fall to its first ever 0.3 at 10/9c.
  • The ABC lineup showed some much-welcome life with Shark Tank (0.8) rising to a new season high at 9/8c, sandwiched by upticks from Kids Say the Darndest Things (0.7) and The Rookie (0.6) as well. The CW (0.3/0.2) was even, and NBC went big with the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football (6.0/6.1/5.7).

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 11/6/19

FINALS UPDATE: Chicago Fire (1.1) adjusted up while Nancy Drew (0.1) adjusted down.

  • Fox's The Masked Singer (2.0/2.0) returned with a double dose following two Wednesdays off due to the World Series, declining from its last original and matching its low from weeks two and three.
  • Following some huge showings against the Series, it was a down night for Chicago Med (1.1), Chicago Fire (1.0) and Chicago PD (1.0). ABC's Modern Family (0.9) also dropped a tick while the 8/7c comedies (0.9/0.7), Single Parents (0.6) and Stumptown (0.5) matched last week.
  • The only two shows to uptick on broadcast were CBS' Survivor (1.3 while its lead-out dramas (0.6/0.5) were even) and the CW's Nancy Drew (0.2, matching Riverdale (0.2) in the demo but trailing by more than 20% in total viewers).

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 11/5/19

FINALS UPDATE: NCIS: New Orleans (0.6) adjusted down.

  • ABC got an extraordinary performance out of The Little Mermaid Live! (2.6), the biggest showing for one of these live musical events in raw numbers since Grease Live! (4.3) in early 2016. On an A18-49+ basis, it should easily top Grease (which had a 295ish) and become the biggest one of these on record. But it provided only a two-tenth boost for rookie drama Emergence (0.7) at 10/9c.
  • Against the big event, the competition had a mixed to negative night. NBC's The Voice (1.3) actually managed a rebound, but dramas This Is Us (1.3) and New Amsterdam (0.7) inched down.
  • CBS was down a tick with NCIS (1.0) but even later in the night (0.8/0.7), while Fox was steady with The Resident (0.7) but down again with Empire (0.7). The CW's The Flash (0.4) and Arrow (0.2) also dropped a tenth.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 11/4/19

FINALS UPDATE: Dancing with the Stars (0.8, -0.2), The Good Doctor (0.7, -0.2), All American (R) (0.1) and Black Lightning (R) (0.1) adjusted down.

  • CBS gave back a bit of its recent Monday momentum, with Bob Hearts Abishola (0.7), All Rise (0.6) and Bull (0.6) all dropping a tenth while anchor The Neighborhood (0.9) was even.
  • NBC matched last week with The Voice (1.3) and Bluff City Law (0.5) as did Fox with 9-1-1 (1.3) and Prodigal Son (0.7). ABC (1.0/0.9/0.9) and the CW's repeats (0.2/0.2) appear to be pending Monday Night Football preemptions.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 11/3/19

FINALS UPDATE: NFL Overrun (6.0, +1.3) and Sunday Night Football (6.7, +0.8) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (1.6, -0.3), God Friended Me (0.7), Football Night in America p2 (1.8, -0.7), Football Night in America p3 (3.8, -1.3), The Simpsons (R) (0.5, -0.5) and Bob's Burgers (R) (0.6, -0.2) adjusted down.

  • CBS was down from last week's prelims with 60 Minutes (1.9), God Friended Me (0.8/0.7), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.6) and Madam Secretary (0.4) despite having another national NFL lead-in. There should be a bit of downward adjustment but perhaps not as much as last week (these shows started 7 minutes after their listed times).
  • Fox animation was back after a week off with The Simpsons (0.8) matching its last non-NFL rating, but Bless the Harts (0.5), Bob's Burgers (0.6) and Family Guy (0.6) all fell to new season lows. ABC had a big night from America's Funniest Home Videos (0.9) but it didn't help out Kids Say the Darndest Things (0.6), Shark Tank (0.6) and The Rookie (0.5). The CW (0.3/0.2) was even again.
  • These shows had no World Series competition this week but were up against a considerably stronger Sunday Night Football (5.9/6.3/5.4).

Spotted Ratings, Friday 11/1/19

FINALS UPDATE: No adjustments.

  • Though the clocks haven't changed yet, it was still a nice Friday for some of the 8/7c offerings as American Housewife ticked up to 0.7 for the first time since premiere week and The Blacklist (0.6) is eyeing a new season high in the prelims. ABC was then even with Fresh Off the Boat (0.5) and down a notch from last week with 20/20 (0.5), while NBC's Dateline (0.6) was on the high end alongside Blacklist.
  • After a one-week stop on FS1, WWE SmackDown! (0.8) returned to big Fox and was up a tenth vs. two weeks ago. CBS (0.7/0.6/0.6) and the CW (0.2/0.1) matched last week.

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 10/30/19

FINALS UPDATE: Survivor (1.2), Chicago Fire (1.2) and World Series (6.1, +0.5) adjusted up while Single Parents (0.6) and SEAL Team (0.6) adjusted down.

  • Game 7 of the World Series (5.6), as Game 7's do, went massively ahead of the rest of the series: more than 50% ahead of the Game 6 prelim, and close to double the game on Wednesday of last week.
  • With another dose of Halloween help, ABC's comedies held up; The Goldbergs (0.9) and Schooled (0.7) matched last week, while Modern Family (1.0) and Single Parents (0.7) matched two weeks ago when they were last together. The net's only decliner was Stumptown, falling to its first 0.5 at 10/9c.
  • NBC's Chicago trio (1.2/1.1/1.1) also hung in there impressively; Fire at 9/8c was the only week-to-week decliner, while Med and PD were even. 
  • CBS' Survivor (1.1) took a hit, but the dramas SEAL Team (0.7) and S.W.A.T. (0.5) looked pretty normal. And the CW's Riverdale (0.2) and Nancy Drew (0.1) were both down, putting Nancy at her first 0.1.
