Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 7/11/18

FINALS UPDATE: Shark Tank (R) (0.6) and The Originals (0.3) adjusted up.

  • CBS' relentlessly promoted Kevin Hart series TKO: Total Knock Out opened with a 0.9, 60% of its lead-in from Big Brother (1.5). That's certainly no better than where last year's unscripted Big Bro lead-out Candy Crush started last year (1.1 out of a 1.8), and a good bit less impressive than the 1.2 for Beat Shazam (another summer series hosted by a movie star) last summer. It was in a three-way tie for the lead at 9/8c with the second half of an America's Got Talent recap special (0.9) and 24 Hours to Hell and Back (0.9). At 10/9c, Code Black (0.8) bounced back to a high-end rating after facing the 4th of July last week.
  • Fox took a hit on a busy night for unscripted programming, with both MasterChef (0.9) and the aforementioned 24 Hours (0.9) dropping two tenths. The CW's The Originals was down to 0.2 with its first original in three weeks.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 7/10/18

FINALS UPDATE: 20/20 Special (0.7) adjusted up while World of Dance (1.2) and The Outpost (0.1) adjusted down.

  • Back from a week off due to the holiday, NBC's America's Got Talent (1.9/2.2) and World of Dance (1.3) along with Fox's Beat Shazam (0.7) and Love Connection (0.5) were in line with two weeks ago. The Last Defense (0.5) inched up for ABC with maybe a little help from a 20/20 special on the Thailand rescue (0.6).
  • The CW moved The 100 (0.3) to 8/7c to launch new drama The Outpost (0.2), which tied last summer's premiere of Hooten and the Lady.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 7/9/18

FINALS UPDATE: Finals are listed below.

  • Big four ratings are uncertain till finals due to a news interruption for a Supreme Court announcement across much of the 9:00 half-hour.
  • NBC completed its Sunday/Monday shakeup with American Ninja Warrior (with a 0.9 in the 8:00 hour and a 1.0/0.8 from 9:30 to 10:30) returning to the first two hours of the night and Dateline (0.6) replacing Running Wild.
    • ABC's The Bachelorette (1.4 in the 8:00 hour, 1.4 at 9:30 and 1.0 at 10:00) looks to have gotten back to normal after last week's holiday hiccup, and Fox's So You Think You Can Dance (0.7) was also up.
    • CBS joined an NCIS: New Orleans repeat (0.4) in progress after the announcement and aired a Salvation original (0.3) at 10/9c.
