Spotted Ratings, Weekend Roundup 6/26-6/28/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: Added 6/19-6/21 and 6/26-6/28 tables on this post. Big Brother (1.8) adjusted up to match last year's Sunday premiere, but Celebrity Family Feud (1.9) stayed narrowly in the nightly lead with an uptick of its own. HBO saw True Detective (1.33) hold up swimmingly in week two, while The Ballers (0.89) and The Brink (0.55) each dropped close to 20%. Humans (0.53) had a pretty good start on AMC, tying last year's Turn series premiere and well ahead of anything Halt and Catch Fire has ever done.
  • Celebrity Family Feud is a great lesson in how quickly the raw numbers landscape shifts. The last time this concept was tried, by NBC in summer 2008, it premiered at a 2.3 demo rating, settled at around 2.0, and was a modest performer not renewed for season two. In 2015, premiering just a tenth higher on ABC at 2.4, it's the breakout smash of the summer. It's not a huge shock that this would do better than the 2008 edition; the 2015 one has got Steve Harvey, the host who has been a godsend for the syndicated version's ratings. But it's pretty striking that the show was actually the #1 entertainment series last week. However, it took a big 25% dip to a still very good 1.8 last night. It's possible the BET Awards were rough competition for this show.
  • Great as the Feud did, it shouldn't get lost that ABC had a second significant success last Sunday in another resurrected reality concept. BattleBots (1.9) retained about 80% of its lead-in in 18-49, but it was not simply riding the Feud's coattails; in fact, it skewed younger and considerably more male than its lead-in (actually building from Feud's 1.9 up to a 2.1 in M18-49). So this was a success in its own right. It also took a considerable week two drop to 1.4. But at least so far, the only bad news for ABC in this block is that they've only got it for six weeks.
  • And CBS premiered its third night of Big Brother (1.7). Like the first two nights (2.1/2.1), this was down less than average from the year-ago premieres (2.3/2.3/1.8).
  • The other notable from last weekend (6/19-6/21) was Fox bringing major championship golf to broadcast primetime with their newly acquired US Open. The event didn't really do much on Thursday (0.7), Friday (0.6) or Saturday (0.7), only hanging a relatively strong average for Sunday (1.3). I'm assuming these are all full-day averages, as the event was mostly much higher (upper-1's) during Sunday primetime and peaked with a 2.6 at 10:00. This weekend, Fox had the USA's quarterfinal in the Women's World Cup; its preliminary 2.0 on Friday improved on the 1.6/1.8 for group stage games in Fox primetime.
  • On June 21 cable, a fresh cast on True Detective (1.42) had a strong return, just behind the huge season one finale (1.57) and miles ahead of everything else from season one (including the 0.97 series premiere). TNT's The Last Ship averaged a 0.69 for its two-hour return, considerably below the low-1's throughout season one.
