Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 9/15/15

  • FINALS UPDATE: America's Got Talent adjusted up to 2.4 (a tenth behind last year's Tuesday finale), while Best Time Ever was down a tenth to 1.8. FX's new drama The Bastard Executioner opened at 2.12 million viewers and a 0.83 demo. It's a worse start than The Strain had last summer (1.18) but an improvement on some other recent FX premieres like Tyrant (0.61) and Fargo (0.80).
  • NBC began its fall rollout with the pre-premiere Tuesday debut of variety series Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris (1.9), which dropped close to a quarter of its 9:30 lead-in from America's Got Talent (2.2/2.5). It certainly wasn't completely rejected; after all, it's well above anything Hollywood Game Night did in the hour this summer. But if it drops in finals (which appears possible with a 2.0 -> 1.7 breakdown), it will only tie the premiere number of early summer newbie I Can Do That. So NBC's certainly gonna be hoping it can hold or grow as its lead-in presumably gets bigger with The Voice's premiere next week, because a tough move to the 8:00 hour looms after that.
  • With Thursday's Big Brother bumped due to football, CBS finally provided a peek at the Big Brother/Zoo pairing many have clamored for. While Big Brother was close to normal with a 2.0, which is double the usual NCIS (R) rating in the slot, Zoo preliminary posted a new low 0.9. It goes down as yet another example of just how incompatible Big Bro is with these CBS summer dramas.
  • ABC had a two-hour Dancing with the Stars recap (1.1) from 9:00-11:00, but perhaps the bigger story was the summer-high repeat ratings from Fresh Off the Boat (0.9/0.8) in the 8:00 hour. A week before the Scream Queens premiere, Fox had one more very low summer Tuesday with movie Scary Movie (0.5). 
 Above based on preliminary adults 18-49 ratings unless otherwise noted. Full table forthcoming!
