Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 12/11/18


FINALS UPDATE: The Rookie (0.8) and Supergirl (0.8) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was fall finale night on ABC, which got one-tenth rebounds for comedies The Conners (1.4), The Kids Are Alright (0.9) and Splitting Up Together (0.7), and CBS, which was up a notch with NCIS (1.3) but down a notch at 10/9c with NCIS: New Orleans (0.8).
  • NBC had another week of special programming after The Voice (1.4); this time, a one-hour Darci Lynne special (0.8) and Hollywood Game Night (0.5) did considerably worse than last week's SNL.
  • And the CW finished up its three night crossover with Supergirl (0.7) hitting season high levels on a special night. Though this was basically the same as a normal The Flash rating, Black Lightning (0.4) still managed an uptick at 9/8c.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/9/18


FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (5.9, +0.6) and The Flash (0.7) adjusted up while Football Night in America p2 (0.5, -1.2) and Football Night in America p3 (2.3, -2.1) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • With a big Dallas Cowboys game in the late afternoon that stretched into the 7:30 half-hour, Fox got an even bigger NFL boost than usual for The Simpsons (2.8), Bob's Burgers (1.8), Family Guy (1.5) and Rel (0.8). The NFL also had a good night on NBC, where Sunday Night Football (5.4/5.5/5.1) should uptick back to 6.0ish after finals.
  • CBS' God Friended Me (0.8), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.9) and Madam Secretary (0.6) aired without the NFL lead-in, and looked similar to the same situation three weeks ago (LA a little better). ABC's Dancing with the Stars: Juniors (0.6) couldn't pick up any steam on finale night, and Shark Tank (0.7) was also even.
  • The CW began a three-night superhero crossover with The Flash (0.6) taking a turn on Sunday. It was toward the low end ratings-wise by Flash standards, but better than anything Supergirl has done on the night this season. With a new lead-in, Charmed remained at 0.3.

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 12/5/18


FINALS UPDATE: No adjustments.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was fall finale night for the two biggest Wednesday lineups, NBC's One Chicago (1.2/1.2/1.1) and Fox's Empire (1.5) and Star (1.2). Fire and Empire were both preliminarily down a notch, while PD and Star were each up a notch; notably, it was the best rating for Star since mid-October.
  • ABC's comedy anchors The Goldbergs (1.2) and Modern Family (1.3) were even, but :30 comedies American Housewife (0.9) and Single Parents (0.8) each lost a tenth. That's a new low for Single Parents. After upticking last week, A Million Little Things was back down to 0.7.
  • CBS' regular lineup returned with Survivor (1.5) inching down, while SEAL Team (0.8) and Criminal Minds (0.7) returned to normal after good showings on Thanksgiving Eve. And after ekeing out 0.3 for four weeks in a row, the CW's All American was finally back at 0.2, for the first time since its second week.

FINALS UPDATE: NCIS: New Orleans (0.9) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • On the first Tuesday after This Is Us and New Amsterdam wrapped for the fall, NBC was down from last week in both their timeslots with a two-hour Saturday Night Live Christmas special (1.1/0.9). Last year, the SNL Christmas special aired on December 21 and got a 1.2.
  • Despite weaker competition, ABC's lineup lost a tenth across the board with The Conners (1.3), The Kids Are Alright (0.8), Black-ish (0.8), Splitting Up Together (0.6) and The Rookie (0.7). CBS' NCIS (1.2), FBI (1.0) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.8) all matched their last originals two weeks ago, and Fox was also even with The Gifted (0.7) and Lethal Weapon (0.7). The CW's The Flash (0.7) was the lone upticker.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 12/3/18


FINALS UPDATE: Arrow (0.5) adjusted up while The Great Christmas Light Fight (0.8, -0.3), The Good Doctor (1.1, -0.3) and The Neighborhood (1.0) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • In its first NBC telecast since May 2009, Deal or No Deal (1.0) returned for a holiday special after The Voice (1.5), before it begins a new run of originals on CNBC. It at least showed more spark than in the dying days of its NBC run; this episode should finish above the league average, which DoND didn't do in its last 50 or so airings in the late aughts.
  • CBS mixed an hour of The Big Bang Theory repeats (0.8/0.8) in between originals of 8/7c comedies The Neighborhood (1.1) and Happy Together (0.8) and 10/9c drama Bull (0.7). ABC (pending preemptions due to Monday Night Football) had the fall finale of The Good Doctor (1.4). The CW (0.4/0.3) was even.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/2/18


FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (5.4, +0.6) and The OT (3.1, +0.5) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (1.1, -0.2), Garth: Live at Notre Dame! (1.2), NCIS: Los Angeles (R) (0.5), Football Night in America p2 (1.3, -0.6), Football Night in America p3 (2.4, -1.6) and NFL Overrun (4.5) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Without the national NFL lead-in, CBS sat out its dramas and got a strong showing from a two-hour Garth Brooks special (1.3/1.2). With the late afternoon NFL help, Fox's comedies (1.6/1.2/1.2/0.6) looked quite similar to their last eps with the big lead-in two weeks ago.
  • ABC took over the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (0.9) after a long run on CBS, putting it on Sunday at 10/9c. The result was another 40% year-to-year decline for a special that has already been on a sharp downturn. (It got a 3.4 just four years ago!) Earlier in the night, America's Funniest Home Videos (0.8) inched down, while Dancing with the Stars: Juniors (0.6) and Shark Tank (0.7) were even.
  • NBC was a little lower than usual with Sunday Night Football (5.0/5.0/4.6), while the CW was on the upswing with Supergirl (0.4) and Charmed (0.3).
