Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 10/19/16


FINALS UPDATE: Blindspot (1.2) and Frequency (0.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The big four stepped aside starting at 9/8c to air the third and final presidential debate. Overnights suggested it did better than the second debate ten days ago (which had to compete with the NFL), and also better than the 2012 third debate, but significantly worse than the enormous first debate on September 26.
  • In the 8:00 hour, Fox's Lethal Weapon (1.7) and NBC's Blindspot (1.3) both aired with atypical lead-outs. It was actually a downgrade for Weapon, which usually has megahit Empire at 9/8c, while Fox averaged just a 1.9 in the 9/8c prelims last night. So the show absolutely looks like the real deal in dropping just a couple tenths in that situation. (It's even had this number in a with-Empire situation, in week three.) Blindspot bounced back from last week's 1.1 to its usual early season number, which is better than nothing, but it's still questionable whether it can do it again under normal circumstances.
  • CBS' Survivor (1.9) did its usual thing, while ABC actually won the hour as Halloween-themed specials It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (2.2) and Toy Story of TERROR! (2.0) did better than the usual comedies. Both specials did significantly better than last season (when they averaged 2.0/1.6 respectively).
  • The CW was the only network with a full entertainment night, as both Arrow (0.6) and Frequency (0.4) aired. The early-season softness continued for the superhero empire, with Arrow preliminarily dipping to a new series low, but Frequency took at least a bit of advantage of the simulcast competition in the 9/8c hour.
