FINALS UPDATE: Empire (1.2) adjusted up while Survivor (1.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS' Survivor (1.4/1.3) went to two hours, leading into the return of SEAL Team (0.7) at 10/9c. SEAL hit a new series low with its first episode this season in the tougher hour.
  • But the eye was still on top in each hour, as ABC was up a tenth with The Goldbergs (1.2) but down a tenth with all its other comedies (0.9/1.1/0.7) and even with Whiskey Cavalier (0.6). Fox's Empire (1.1) and Star (1.0) shed a tenth from last week's underwhelming spring premieres, and NBC had a two-hour The Voice recap (1.0) and a Michael Buble special (0.5). The CW (0.3/0.2) was even.

FINALS UPDATE: The Kids Are Alright (0.7) adjusted up while The Village (0.8) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC premiered this year's spring heir to the This Is Us timeslot, new drama The Village (0.9), at 10/9c, where it held barely half of the This Is Us (1.7) lead-in. On premiere night, it couldn't even get to the 1.0 New Amsterdam has been pulling here all year; it's possible to be weaker than New Amsterdam and still successful, but it has little cushion to work with here. It was down 25% from the Rise premiere last spring, but This Is Us was down a whooping 39% from that same night.
  • Fox had a premiere of its own with unscripted newbie Mental Samurai (0.7), which was down a tenth from its MasterChef Junior (0.8) lead-in (and in line with the second hour of MasterChef from last week).
  • ABC's comedies (0.8/0.6/0.6/0.6) returned in rather ugly fashion after The Bachelor's stint in their timeslot; the first three were all down by two tenths from three weeks ago, making a steady Splitting Up Together look better by comparison. The closest thing to a winner on ABC was The Rookie (0.7), which held onto part of its post-Bachelor uptick from two weeks ago.
  • CBS was repeats (0.7/0.6/0.5) and the CW preliminarily got a rebound from Roswell, New Mexico (0.3).

FINALS UPDATE: American Idol (1.2) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • American Idol (1.2/1.1) kicked off its Monday run well below anything it did on Monday last year (nearly 40% behind the year-ago 1.85 Monday premiere) and launched new 10/9c drama The Fix (0.7) to little interest. Fix could only tie where Whiskey Cavalier started with a Single Parents lead-in a few weeks ago, and was well below Whiskey's 0.9 in a week two episode after Idol. It was also down in Plus from the premiere of The Crossing (0.9), the ultimately failed occupant of this timeslot in the spring a year ago.
  • If there was any consolation for Idol, it was that The Voice (1.7) had a down night as well, and The Enemy Within (0.8) dropped along with it.
  • Fox's 9-1-1 (1.2) returned after nearly four months off, at the low end of its fall ratings, while lead-in The Resident (0.9) inched down at 8/7c.
  • CBS' Man with a Plan (0.9) looked better with a The Big Bang Theory repeat lead-in (0.9), but Bull (0.7) was down at 10/9c following comedy repeats (0.8/0.6) in the 9/8c hour. The CW (0.3/0.2) was even.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 3/17/19


FINALS UPDATE: No adjustments.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS got its first of several basketball-related Sunday jolts, as 60 Minutes (1.1) led out of the NCAA tournament selection show in the 6:00 ET hour. That helped God Friended Me (0.8) to its best rating since January, and kept NCIS: Los Angeles at its solid 0.9 from two weeks ago, though Madam Secretary inched down to 0.5 at 10/9c.
  • There was not a lot of change with two-hour reality series American Idol (1.3) and World of Dance (0.8/0.9), which matched last week's preliminary hours, but at 10/9c Shark Tank (0.9) was up a tenth and Good Girls (0.5) lost a precious one. Fox's Bob's Burgers (0.9) and Family Guy (0.8) traded ratings, while the CW (0.3/0.2) was even.
