Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 7/28/15

  • America's Got Talent began its usual second-half slump with a drop to a new season low 2.1. But NBC still dominated Tuesday start to finish as Hollywood Game Night (1.3) was even at 10/9c.
  • CBS got some good news as week five of Zoo (1.2) was back up to tie the rating from the first two weeks. It got some help from NCIS (1.0), which had one of its best repeat ratings of the summer. 
  • ABC and Fox remained off the Tuesday map, with Knock Knock Live (0.5) getting no help from the return of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? (0.6) at 8/7c. 
Above based on preliminary adults 18-49 rating unless otherwise noted. Full table forthcoming!

War of 18-49 Update, Criminal Minds (2014-15)

Let's take a look at the 2014-15 season (the tenth overall) of Criminal Minds on CBS.

Spotted Ratings, Weekend Roundup 7/24-7/26/15

  • FINALS UPDATE: Sunday's Big Brother (1.9) adjusted up and Saturday's Boston EMS (0.6) adjusted down. The Caitlyn Jenner series I Am Cait opened with a Sunday-leading 1.15 for E!, while Adult Swim's Rick and Morty was back for season two with a 1.03.
  • ABC's new smash Celebrity Family Feud went out with one last 2.0, staying ahead of Big Brother (1.8) for Sunday broadcast supremacy. And the finale of BattleBots (1.4) preliminarily had a second straight uptick, which should be more than enough to get it back next summer. Meanwhile, NBC remained invisible as Welcome to Sweden (0.3/0.2) was down even more from last week's pair of 0.3's.
  • On Saturday, ABC introduced Boston EMS (0.7) with pretty good numbers by Saturday standards. This seems to be a companion series to the Sunday 10/9c newbie Save My Life: Boston Trauma (0.9), which gained a tenth in its second outing.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 7/27/15

  • FINALS UPDATE: A tenth went out of The Bachelorette's "After the Final Rose" (2.3) and into the two-hour finale (2.5). Also adjusting down were Running Wild (1.2, still up a tenth from last week), Penn and Teller: Fool Us (0.6, still a new season high) and Cedric's Barber Battle (0.2).
  • The Bachelorette got a big finale spike, up to comfortably a season high 2.4 for both the finale and for "After the Final Rose" at 10:00. This was up significantly from last season's finale/ATFR (2.0/2.1) and solidified this as easily the strongest Bachelorette season in Plus since the franchise moved to the summer in 2008.
  • ABC's gain was the other reality staples' loss, as American Ninja Warrior (1.9) and, more alarmingly, So You Think You Can Dance (0.8) each shed two tenths. However, NBC did get some silver lining as Running Wild (1.3) rebounded to what would be a new season high (if it avoids its usual downward adjustment).
  • Pending a preemption, CW's Penn and Teller: Fool Us surged two tenths to 0.7, which is an outstanding result should it hold.

Cablemetrics: Hell on Wheels, Ray Donovan, Complications, The Strain

  • AMC's Saturday staple Hell on Wheels was back to begin its two-part final season with a 0.38 premiere, down 19% from last summer's opener. That actually put it ahead of both of AMC's Sunday dramas this week, as the swingy Humans (0.33) fell back down by 25%.
  • Last week's Ray Donovan premiere was not as good as it looked because it seemed unlikely it could grow as much over the course of the season again. But... maybe it can? The show was up 16% to a 0.37 in week two. It'll have to do that several more times, but this was an encouraging step. However, its lead-out Masters of Sex went way in the other direction, down 31% to an awful 0.09.
