Spotted Ratings, Thursday 11/23/17


WHAT MATTERS:
  • On Thanksgiving evening, CBS aired a repeat of The Big Bang Theory (2.9) leading into originals of Young Sheldon (2.6), Mom (1.8), Life in Pieces (1.3) and S.W.A.T. (1.1). Though the network's late afternoon NFL game ended well before primetime, its halo was still enough to pull the entire lineup upward by multiple tenths, with Sheldon headed for easily its best rating since the series premiere.
  • The CW also went original on Thanksgiving to much weaker results; the Supernatural (0.3) / Arrow (0.3) combo was at barely half of its usual delivery.
  • NBC won Thursday with its Thanksgiving NFL game, but it looks like the Redskins and the Giants (with a low-to-mid-4's prelim) will be down significantly from last year's 6.9 Thanksgiving game.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 11/21/17


WHAT MATTERS:
  • On the last full-fledged entertainment night before a long holiday weekend, NBC introduced Chicago Med (1.3) into the Tuesday mix at 10/9c. It was down just a tenth from last year's premiere, but it also had a way bigger lead-in from This Is Us (2.5) than it usually had on Thursday last season. Still, it looks like a solid bet that the show will improve noticeably on previous occupant Law and Order True Crime. At 8/7c, The Voice (1.7) continued a down week by matching Monday's performance episode.
  • ABC featured the two-hour finale of Dancing with the Stars (1.3), which was a touch lower than what the show has usually been doing on Mondays, and significantly below the 1.8 fall finale in 2016. It had a comedy hour lead-in from The Middle (1.3) and Fresh Off the Boat (1.1), which both matched last week.
  • On a night that usually sees some overall viewing slippage due to the start of the holiday, there were a few down shows, including the NCIS twins (1.4 for the mothership and 0.9 for New Orleans, which had a lot more 10/9c competition than usual) as well as The Flash (0.8). And some shows matched last week, like everything on Fox (1.0/0.7/0.6), Bull (1.1) and Legends of Tomorrow (0.5).

Spotted Ratings, Monday 11/20/17


FINALS UPDATE: The Good Doctor (1.8), Kevin Can Wait (1.2) and Man with a Plan (1.0) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's Dancing with the Stars (1.4/1.5) and The Good Doctor (1.9) along with the early part of the CBS lineup (1.4/1.2/1.0/0.8/0.9) are pending Monday Night Football preemptions.
  • It was a down night for the other half of the big four, with The Voice (1.7) taking a tumble while dramas The Brave, Lucifer and The Gifted all lost a tenth to 0.9. The CW was steady with Supergirl (0.5) and Valor (0.2).

FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (7.0) adjusted up while The Toy Box (0.5), 60 Minutes (1.8), Madam Secretary (0.6), Football Night in America p2 (2.4), Football Night in America p3 (3.7) and Bob's Burgers (R) (0.6) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The American Music Awards on ABC went for a 2.3/2.6/2.3 in its three hours, steadying the ship for the ceremony after last year posted a 2.4 (which was down huge from the 3.5 in 2015). It's an especially solid showing since the awards had a much weaker lead-in than last year in the finale of The Toy Box (0.6) at 7/6c. But that would still be a second consecutive new season high for Toy Box.
  • It was also a massive night for Sunday Night Football, as the Cowboys and Eagles posted a low-6 prelim which should be the biggest game for SNF in over two months (or since the start of the TV regular season).
  • That combination meant really bad things for the broadcast entertainment options. Despite a national NFL lead-in and a 2.0 from 60 Minutes, CBS quickly went fractional with Wisdom of the Crowd (0.8), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.7) and Madam Secretary (0.7). And with the exception of a strong Bob's Burgers (1.1) at 7:30, Fox was at new season lows with The Simpsons (1.1), Ghosted (0.8), Family Guy (0.9) and The Last Man on Earth (0.7). The first three of those were two tenths behind their previous lows this season.

Spotted Ratings, Friday 11/17/17


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Once Upon a Time aired two original hours, with its usual 0.5 at 8/7c and its first 0.4 at 9/8c, as the network prepares to launch Agents of SHIELD after Thanksgiving. However, 20/20 (0.7) did better than usual at 10/9c. NBC's Blindspot (0.6) was also down to a new low.
  • CBS gave back a bit of its surge from a week ago, with Hawaii Five-0 (1.0) and Blue Bloods (0.9) each down a notch while MacGyver held onto the 0.9.
