Cablemetrics: The Expanse, The Magicians, Into the Badlands, Fargo


These numbers are current through Thursday, December 17.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • This week saw Syfy use its three-night miniseries Childhood's End (0.43 -> 0.31 -> 0.33) as a lead-in for previews of its new drama series. On Monday and Tuesday, it was space opera The Expanse (0.33 -> 0.27), which will actually continue airing on Tuesdays through the holidays and into the winter. Wednesday brought The Magicians (0.26), which was more of a true "special preview" situation as it's not airing again until late January. At least so far, despite what seems like a bigger money investment, there's little indication that these will be the shows to get the channel out of its rut of 0.2-0.3 same-day ratings for dramas.
  • Nothing on the board cracked a 1.0 this week as Into the Badlands (0.96) and American Horror Story (0.94) each dipped below the mark. We'll soon see if Badlands can inch back into the ones with last night's finale, but barring something really drastic it's still looking very second season-worthy. As for Horror Story, it's continued to sputter since a very healthy start to the season. After going -4% and -5% year-to-year in the first two weeks, it's been worse than -20% every week since, and this 0.94 marked a season-worst -37%.
  • There were lots of finales this week as we say goodbye to the fall, and Fargo (0.49) may have been most encouraging as it packed on more than a tenth and hit a new season high and also just -20% year-to-year, its best trend of the season. Though the buzz is still strong with this show, the same-day ratings didn't really seem to follow suit this season, but maybe this offers some hope for a better hold next season. (Then again, it isn't coming back till 2017...)
