Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 10/28/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Middle (2.0) and The Goldbergs (2.2) went up to put all the ABC comedy originals on the upside vs. last week. Survivor (2.1) was also up a tick. The Mysteries of Laura (1.0), Arrow (0.9) and Supernatural (0.8) all went down 0.1, but that's still a good number for SPN which bounced all the way back to its week two rating.
    • The World Series ended up with 13.72 million viewers and a 3.9 A18-49, which was down 15% from Tuesday's rating. But this was still 15% ahead of last year's Game 2 and the best Game 2 since 2011.
    • And the Republican debate averaged 14 million viewers and a 2.64 A18-49 on CNBC. Certainly this is big enough to be a factor in the landscape but it had barely half the 18-49 audience of the enormous CNN Republican debate in mid-September (4.94). Even the CNN Democratic debate two weeks ago (3.59) was considerably bigger.
  • On a night with no original Modern Family, the other ABC comedies held up fine with Halloween originals as The Middle (1.9) and The Goldbergs (2.1) were even and Black-ish (1.9) was actually up a tenth with no Empire competition but a repeat ModFam lead-in (albeit a particularly strong one at 1.9). Nashville (1.1) rounded out the steady ABC evening.
  • NBC had relatively normal results from The Mysteries of Laura (1.1) and a special two-hour edition of Chicago PD (1.4/1.5), though PD's 1.4 in the 9:00 hour was lower than anything Law and Order: SVU has done there this season even with Empire competition. CBS also saw no real benefit on an Empire-free night as Criminal Minds (1.6) stayed at last week's low in between slightly down Survivor (2.0) and Code Black (1.1).
  • The CW, which has usually had a rough time against the World Series historically, had a surge in the prelims with Arrow (1.0) and Supernatural (0.9). We'll see if there were NBA preemptions in the mix here.
  • Fox had a relatively lopsided Game 2 of the World Series and seems to be down from Game 1, at least in the early prelims. There was also a Republican presidential debate on CNBC in the mix, whose early household numbers suggest a huge number (certainly a record-setter for that channel) but not quite in the league of the Fox News/CNN debates. More after finals!
