Spotted Ratings, Weekend Roundup 9/19-9/20/14


WHAT MATTERS:
  • On Friday, CBS got exceptional numbers by Friday standards with a special edition of Big Brother (1.6), bumped to the night by CBS' Sunday premieres. (I've seen conflicting reports about whether this was a clip show, so I'm not sure whether to mark it as a repeat; anyone know for sure?) Fox tried to keep Utopia (0.5) away by airing it at 9/8c, but it was still two tenths below last week's Friday premiere.
  • Both football networks were up on Saturday, with ABC's Clemson/Florida State nailbiter (2.6) a particular highlight. It doubled last week's rating.
  • I've caught up on the full tables for pre-premiere week. I'm not bumping all those posts, but you can find them by scrolling down a bit on the sr label. The True numbers on these posts still use the 2013-14 formula, so for early 2014-15 series they will vary drastically from what's posted in the Vault.

Big Brother was a sort of season highlights episode, with some new stuff in there. I wouldn't mark it as a repeat. It's sort of like Survivor's recap episodes, which I think you counted as new episodes.

Big Brother was essentially a clip show. I have marked it as a repeat in my spreadsheet. It's like those voice recap shows or DWTS recap shows.

Spot's precedent for those is to list them with the reruns, with an explanatory asterisk.
