Spotted Ratings, Monday 1/11/16


WHAT MATTERS:
  • FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelor (2.0) and Scorpion (1.4) adjusted up.
    • It was not a great night for college football as its title game averaged 25.667 million viewers and an 8.26 A18-49 rating (ESPN telecast only), down over 20% year-to-year on both counts. After a huge spike last year, this game basically reverted to the total viewership level of other games since the move to ESPN. But it was the lowest 18-49 rating since 2008 and the third-lowest in our 15-year records.
  • The College Football Playoff Championship Game on ESPN provided a good excuse for a quiet night on broadcast, but NBC and ABC plowed through with their winter filler lineups. Perhaps with an assist from a weaker ESPN game that featured two teams in the South/Southeast, these shows held up a bit better than last year. 
    • The biggest drops came from NBC's 8/7c comedies. Superstore (1.5) was still a good lead-off option but took a three-tenth hit from last week, and Telenovela (1.0) took a three-tenth hit of its own. These shows had to deal with not just game coverage but also comedy competition as CBS filled Supergirl's off night with even stronger repeats of The Big Bang Theory (1.9/1.9).
    • The Biggest Loser (1.0/1.1) rounded out NBC's night with a modest decline in the last two hours.
    • And on ABC, The Bachelor (2.0/1.9) dropped somewhat as well, but that actually left it up in raw numbers vs. last year's rating against the big game (when it dropped to 1.8). The after-show Bachelor Live (1.0) was even.
  • The other three networks went into/stayed in repeat mode against the big game:
    • CBS: The Big Bang Theory (1.9/1.9), Scorpion (1.3), NCIS: Los Angeles (1.0) 
    • Fox: MasterChef Junior (0.9/0.8)
    • CW: Whose Line Is It Anyway? (0.4/0.4), Penn and Teller: Fool Us (0.4)
