The Question, Sunday 9/21/14: Will Madam Secretary Negotiate a Demo Audience?

Knowing that their new drama Madam Secretary has a rather old-skewing concept, CBS scheduled it on Sunday at 8/7 in an attempt to capture as many eyeballs as possible from the huge late-afternoon NFL lead-ins. Since the network does not have a national late-afternoon game next week, that means Madam Secretary premieres on the eve of the official season, and then will have to cross its fingers for a good hold with much less support and more competition next week. Will Madam Secretary negotiate a demo audience? That's The Question for Sunday, September 21, 2014.

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 9/18/14

  • If last week represented the best CBS can expect from Thursday Night Football, last night (3.3) probably represented the worst. Not only did Bucs/Falcons look like the Thursday package's worst game going in, but the game quickly became a massive blowout. The preliminary was 40% behind last week's preliminary. A 40% finals drop would mean just a 4.5 on CBS + NFLN combined.
  • In its last opportunity before real competition from ABC and Fox arrives, The Biggest Loser (1.3) took a pretty disappointing week two drop. It led into a The Mysteries of Laura (0.8) pilot encore.
 Above based on preliminary adults 18-49 ratings unless otherwise noted. Full table forthcoming!

Fall 2014 Best Case/Worst Case, Friday 10/9c

Best Case/Worst Case moves to the Friday 10/9c hour. NBC populated the hour with low-cost Grimm companion dramas in 2013-14, but they're aiming higher this fall with the more normal-budgeted comic book drama Constantine.
