Spotted Ratings, Thursday 12/14/17

FINALS UPDATE: Thursday Night Football (2.9) adjusted up while Thursday Night Football Pregame (1.2) adjusted down.

  • CBS' The Big Bang Theory (2.6) and Young Sheldon (2.0) gave back much of their surges from last week, but the network made up some of it as S.W.A.T. ticked back up to 1.0 at 10/9c.
  • On ABC, Frozen became the latest Disney franchise to get a half-hour holiday special, and Olaf's Frozen Adventure (1.4) was easily the highest-rated holiday programming of the night. It helped boost Prep & Landing (1.1) to its best rating in a few years. With The Great American Baking Show pulled due to sexual misconduct allegations, a two-hour repeat of The Great Christmas Light Fight (0.7) rounded out the evening.
  • Fox trailed in the holiday special battle with Showtime at the Apollo (0.7) and Taraji's White Hot Holidays (0.7), while the CW did well with the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball (0.4). It was a rough night for NBC's Thursday Night Football, which featured two non-contending teams.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/10/17

FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (5.4) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (1.0), Football Night in America p2 (0.6), Football Night in America p3 (2.3), The OT (4.3) and The Simpsons (2.3) adjusted down.

  • Fox's live-action Sunday comedies took the night off, and it was a bad night to miss as The Simpsons (2.7) rode the NFL boost to its highest ratings of the season. Bob's Burgers (1.6/1.3) aired a one-hour episode from 8:30 to 9:30, and at 8:30 it was higher than any Ghosted episode. Family Guy (1.2) aired at 9:30 and was of course a big improvement on The Last Man on Earth.
  • ABC did strong business with a showing of Frozen (1.2) from 8:00 to 10:00, though it was down a half-point from the film's broadcast debut last year. Reality special Encore! (0.5) garnered little interest at 10/9c, though America's Funniest Home Videos (0.9) did well in its return to the 7/6c hour.
  • Without NFL help, CBS' Wisdom of the Crowd (0.7) was on the low end, providing little help to NCIS: Los Angeles (0.8) and Madam Secretary (0.7). NBC was down just a bit from recent weeks with a 4.9ish prelim for Sunday Night Football.

FINALS UPDATE: Blue Bloods (0.9) adjusted down.

  • ABC's Once Upon a Time (0.5) and Agents of SHIELD (0.5) were finally together on the same night, with the latter dropping two tenths after last week's OK premiere.
  • Everything else on broadcast was original as well, and it was a big bounce-back night for CBS with MacGyver (0.9), Hawaii Five-0 (1.1) and Blue Bloods (1.0) all on the rise. Fox was up as well, with Hell's Kitchen (0.8) and The Exorcist (0.4) inching off of last week's lows. And the CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (0.2) and Jane the Virgin (0.3) made a one-off return to the scene after taking the last couple Fridays off.

FINALS UPDATE: Thursday Night Football (4.3) and Supernatural (0.6) adjusted up while Thursday Night Football Pregame (1.5) adjusted down.

  • ABC continued its holiday filler rollout with the return of The Great American Baking Show (0.8). It was down by two tenths from last year's premiere. It led out of another nice showing for some ABC holiday specials, as Shrek the Halls (1.0) and Toy Story That Time Forgot (0.9) were both up a tick from last year. 
  • CBS' The Big Bang Theory (2.8) and Young Sheldon (2.2) were on the rebound, with TBBT all the way back to tie its highest Thursday rating this fall. However, S.W.A.T. (0.9) dropped a tenth for the second straight week at 10/9c.
  • The CW's superhero fall finale week concluded with Arrow falling to its first 0.4 of the season (though it was still ahead of the 0.3 on Thanksgiving).

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 12/6/17

  • Some of last week's ugliest droppers were on the rebound this Wednesday, with American Housewife up two tenths to 1.2 (though still on the low end compared with all its other points) and Empire (1.8) picking up a notch for Fox. The ABC comedy anchors The Goldbergs (1.5) and Modern Family (1.7) also edged upward, while Speechless (1.1) and Designated Survivor (0.7) were even.
  • On NBC, The Blacklist was MIA again as a repeat of last week's Pentatonix special (0.8) filled in at 8/7c. Lead-out dramas Law and Order: SVU (1.3) and Chicago PD (1.2) came back to earth a bit but were still a little above average.
  • The CBS dramas were back, with Criminal Minds (0.9) on the low end but SEAL Team hanging at 1.1. It had an assist from Survivor (1.8), which continued to look strong down the stretch of the season.
