Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 4/24/18

FINALS UPDATE: The Voice (1.6), Chicago Med (1.0) and LA to Vegas (0.7) adjusted up while Deception (0.7) and Rise (0.7) adjusted down.

  • It was the first Tuesday in five weeks without an original episode of Roseanne, but it didn't stop ABC from taking another Tuesday title on the back of four strong Roseanne repeats (1.3/1.3/1.5/1.5). It was big enough to even provide some lift for Deception (0.8), which (if it can hang on after finals) outrated its last couple Sunday airings on a special night.
  • On the CW, The 100 (0.4) was back for season five in solid fashion following a low-end The Flash (0.6). It tied last year's premiere, which also had a 0.6 lead-in (from Arrow).
  • The other 8/7c originals may have benefited a bit from the Roseanne break, as Lethal Weapon (0.9) was up a tick and The Voice (1.5) was even and may be up after finals. However, Fox's comedies were stuck at 0.6/0.6, and NBC saw another 0.8 from Rise leading into an oddly large drop to 0.9 for Chicago Med. CBS (0.7/0.7/0.6) was in repeats.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 4/23/18

FINALS UPDATE: The Resident (0.9) adjusted up.

  • American Idol (1.3/1.4) drew closer than ever to The Voice (1.5) on Monday, though that was more about The Voice than Idol; preliminarily, it was down a whooping three tenths week-to-week, while Idol was close to even. 10/9c dramas The Crossing (0.7) and Good Girls (0.9) matched last week's finals.
  • CBS' originals took the night off in favor of Sheldon-verse repeats (1.0/1.0/1.0/1.0), which as always meant better ratings than the usual occupants. A Carpool Karaoke special (0.8) also improved the 10/9c hour vs. last week's Scorpion finale. Elsewhere, Fox's The Resident (0.8) along with CW's Supergirl (0.4) and iZombie (0.2) ticked down.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 4/22/18

  • All the regular broadcast lineups were back in place on Sunday, which helped American Idol (1.5) to rebound by multiple tenths. But that was no help to its lead-out Deception, which tanked to 0.6 for the first time as it prepares for a special original following a Roseanne repeat marathon on Tuesday.
  • The CBS dramas were back, and roughly in line with three weeks ago when they didn't have help from The Masters. That meant a return to 0.6 for Instinct and a small drop for NCIS: Los Angeles (0.8), while Madam Secretary matched last week's 0.6.
  • On Fox, Family Guy (0.9) returned but was unable to boost The Last Man on Earth (0.6), while Bob's Burgers (0.8) and The Simpsons (0.9) gave back last week's upticks. All things NBC matched last week (0.6/0.8/0.6/0.5)

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 4/18/18

FINALS UPDATE: Modern Family (R) (0.8), The Voice (1.5) and Empire (1.8) adjusted up.

  • With The Voice (1.4) airing at 8/7c, NBC's Law and Order: SVU (1.4) and Chicago PD (1.2) got a big jolt. (In addition to Voice, they usually bounce back from their first episodes after hiatus anyway.)
  • Against a stronger NBC, CBS' Criminal Minds (1.0/0.9) did fairly typical ratings with its two-hour season finale. It could turn out to be a series finale, but Minds did get at least one more return to the Wednesday 9/8c hour it occupied for 12 years. Survivor (1.6) matched last week.
  • Empire (1.7) was nicked a bit against The Voice, but alongside Star (1.3) was still enough for another Wednesday victory on Fox. 
  • ABC's Alex, Inc. (0.6) went straight from the Roseanne lead-in on Tuesday to a repeat of The Goldbergs (0.7) on Wednesday, tanking to three tenths behind what it did after an original last week. The only other ABC original Designated Survivor held onto its 0.6 at 10/9c.
  • And with Life Sentence exiled to Friday, the CW welcomed The Originals (0.4) to the night to air its final season, where it continued the impressive streak it began on Friday last season. Unless it adjusts down, it will finish ahead of anything Dynasty or Life Sentence have done there all season. Riverdale's musical episode (0.4) inched off of its low from three weeks ago.
