Spotted Ratings, Thursday 8/6/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Republican debate on Fox News averaged a truly ridiculous 24 million viewers, and the A18-49 rating was a still sky-high 5.3 (about on par with a higher-end Monday Night Football game). Jon Stewart's final The Daily Show was also a standout with a 1.43, about three times its normal rating. Big Brother adjusted up to 2.1.
  • On a night whose most memorable rating will come from the Republican debate on Fox News, one of the few broadcast offerings on the upswing was actually the newsmagazine Dateline (1.1). Its lead-in Food Fighters (0.9) was also on the high end.
  • Meanwhile, it was the scripted shows hit hardest. Under the Dome (0.8) plummeted to a new low for CBS, while ABC also took a hit across the board as The Astronaut Wives Club (0.6), Mistresses (0.6) and Rookie Blue (0.6) all tied their previous lows.
  • Despite Dome's struggles, CBS still dominated the night as Big Brother (2.0) was back in the twos for the third time in four airings.
