Spotted Ratings, Friday 12/4/20


WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS Friday returned with 0.5's across the board for MacGyver, Magnum P.I. and Blue Bloods. Mac was two tenths behind its winter 2020 season premiere, while Magnum and Blue were down just a tenth from their fall 2019 premieres (but well below their COVID-fueled highs from the spring).
  • That left Shark Tank (0.6) as the top Friday program again, even as it declined for the second straight episode. Fox's WWE SmackDown! (0.5) also dropped for a second consecutive week.

FINALS UPDATE: Christmas in Rockefeller Center (1.2) and Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes (0.9) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS' SEAL Team returned with a two-hour premiere (0.5/0.5) following The Amazing Race (0.7). While this was down about a third from last sesaon's premiere and tied last season's low, it did look a little better than any of the November episodes of S.W.A.T.
  • Fox rolled to victory with two hours of The Masked Singer (1.5/1.6), while NBC was a respectable second with holiday staple Christmas in Rockefeller Center (1.2/1.1) and a Radio City Rockettes special (0.8). Rockefeller was on par with or above the year-ago telecast (1.1), perhaps getting a little indirect help from NBC's late Wednesday afternoon NFL game.
  • On ABC, the 8/7c comedies The Goldbergs (0.7) and American Housewife (0.6) were steady, the 9/8c hour of The Conners (0.6) and Black-ish (0.4) inched down, and For Life (0.3) fell apart after last week's uptick.

FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelorette (1.2), Let's Make a Deal Special (0.6), FBI: Most Wanted (R) (0.4), The Voice (0.8), Weakest Link (R) (0.6), Transplant (0.5) and Cosmos: Possible Worlds (0.3) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's Big Sky (0.7) continued to hang on, posting its third straight 0.7 following The Bachelorette (1.2/1.1).
  • CBS got a nice showing from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1.1), within a tenth of last year's performance on the year-ago evening (1.2), and it led into a Let's Make a Deal primetime special (0.5). NBC's The Voice (0.7) took a hard hit in its first live results show.

FINALS UPDATE: CMA Country Christmas (0.7), The Good Doctor (0.6) and The Neighborhood (0.8) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's third Disney singalong special (1.2) was holiday themed and came within striking distance of the last one in May (1.36). Pending football preemptions, this seemed to help out the rest of the programming, as CMA Country Christmas (0.8) was preliminarily above last year's edition (0.67) and The Good Doctor (0.7) rose from last week.
  • On CBS, The Neighborhood (0.9) was up but may be affected by a West Coast preemption, while the rest of the night (0.6/0.5/0.5) was steady. NBC was even-ish with The Voice (0.9/0.8) and a bit better than usual with Weakest Link (0.6).

FINALS UPDATE: Supermarket Sweep (0.6), NFL Overrun (6.0, +0.7), Movie: Coming to America (0.6), The Simpsons (R) (0.6) and Bob's Burgers (R) (0.5) adjusted up while Card Sharks (0.2) and 60 Minutes (2.0) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Returning from a week off, ABC's Supermarket Sweep (0.5) took a brutal drop, and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (0.4) is also eyeing a new low despite promoting a million dollar winner. They had little help from the 7/6c hour as the Prep & Landing Christmas specials (0.4/0.5) significantly underperformed America's Funniest Home Videos.
  • Mixed in with repeats and the Ice Age holiday special, Fox's The Simpsons (0.6) and Bob's Burgers (0.5) were each down a notch from their last non-NFL night three weeks ago. CBS used its national overrun on 60 Minutes (2.6/1.5), a repeat of The Neighborhood (0.7) and a movie night (0.5).

FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelorette (1.3), FBI (0.9), The Voice (1.0) and Weakest Link (R) (0.7) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's Big Sky (0.7) was steady vs. last week's premiere (and up in total viewers), despite a diminished The Bachelorette lead-in (1.2/1.1).
  • The CBS drama trio also looked similar in its second week back, with NCIS (0.9) even and FBI (0.8) giving up a tenth to its spin-off FBI: Most Wanted (0.7). NBC's The Voice (0.9) took a dip as a Weakest Link repeat (0.6) took over for This Is Us in the 9/8c hour.
