Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 9/30/15


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Goldbergs (2.4), Modern Family (3.0), Survivor (2.4), Rosewood (2.0) and Empire (5.5) all added a tenth, while Nashville (1.1) and Code Black (1.5) lost a tenth. This put Code Black's retention almost exactly on par with the year-ago Stalker premiere (and the raw number now down 25%).
  • The second Wednesday of the season was marked by something never seen before: a significant week-to-week drop from Empire (5.4), which shed over a point from last week's premiere. It seems likely now that we're finally past this beast's raw numbers peak, and it's now just a question of how it does at managing these declines.
    • At 8/7c, Rosewood (1.9) took a similar 20%ish drop, keeping it well ahead of pretty much everything else on the Fox schedule (except for maybe NFL-boosted comedies on Sunday). With a 1.7 -> 2.2 breakdown, the pre-tune effect is still clear.
  • CBS had a mixed night with a very healthy week two from Survivor (2.3), a very slow start from Criminal Minds (2.0), and the premiere of Code Black (1.6) at 10/9c. Code was 20% behind last year's Stalker premiere, but because Minds was down so sharply (26% behind last year's premiere), Code actually had better retention than Stalker. Not an awful start, but it needs to hold up well.
  • It looks like NBC may be encroaching on CBS' Wednesday crime drama territory for another year, as Chicago PD (1.7) had a good return at 10/9c (already #1 in the hour on Code Black's premiere night) and kept Law and Order: SVU (1.7) very close to last week. (Since SVU did so well at 10/9c last week, it's actually ahead of its 1.6/1.5 rating in the 9/8c hour a week ago.) The Mysteries of Laura (1.2) also held up in week two, putting NBC just 4% behind its year-ago evening.
  • ABC was a mixed bag as the 8/7c hour held up extremely well; The Middle (2.2) was actually up from the premiere and The Goldbergs (2.3) within a tenth. Modern Family (2.9) was down a reasonable three tenths at 9/8c, but Black-ish (1.8) completely collapsed from its strong return number last week. Nashville (1.2) preliminarily matched last week's premiere at 10/9c.
