Spotted Ratings, Premiere Monday 9/25/17


FINALS UPDATE: The Big Bang Theory (4.1) and Young Sheldon (3.8) adjusted up while Dancing with the Stars (1.4), The Good Doctor (2.2), Me, Myself and I (1.6), The Brave (1.3) and So You Think You Can Dance (0.5) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS made a massive Premiere Monday splash with the debut of Young Sheldon (3.7), which held almost all the lead-in from its parent series The Big Bang Theory (3.9). That puts it ahead of last year's Kevin Can Wait premiere, and virtually certain to become the highest scripted series premiere on record in A18-49+. (2 Broke Girls' 301 in 2011 is the only one that has cracked a 300.) This will throw some more intrigue into CBS' Young Sheldon rollout plan; the show is slated to sit on the bench from now until November 2. Can the eye really leave a potential megahit comedy on the shelf for six weeks??
    • The Young Sheldon hype shouldn't completely obscure that it was an incredible night from TBBT (3.9) in its own right. This will be the biggest historical-adjusted performance in the history of the show, probably over a 350 Plus.
    • Later in the night, Kevin Can Wait (2.3) was back for season two, and it managed to come pretty close to last year's premiere after making news with its replacement of Erinn Hayes with Leah Remini in the off-season. It led into new comedy Me, Myself and I (1.7), which held up OK at 9:30. But the CBS momentum was gone by 10/9c, as Scorpion (1.0) was down considerably from last year's premiere with a lot more competition.
  • ABC had its own extremely impressive start with 10/9c drama The Good Doctor (2.4), which built big on its lead-in from Dancing with the Stars (1.5). This was well over double the measly 0.9 premiere of Conviction a year ago, and on a Plus basis should handily outrate anything Castle ever did in eight seasons with this timeslot. The network may adjust down in finals due to a Monday Night Football preemption in Dallas.
  • This left NBC as a bit of a Premiere Monday afterthought, even though it was close behind CBS for the nightly average with two hours of The Voice (2.3/2.8). Voice was down at least 20% year-to-year. New drama The Brave opened with a 1.4 at 10/9c (including a shaky 1.6 -> 1.2 half-hour breakdown). This was down four tenths from the Timeless premiere a year ago and even more steeply behind The Good Place, which had a 2.3 for the hour on Premiere Monday.
  • Fox stayed out of the Premiere Monday mix, instead wrapping up the So You Think You Can Dance season (0.6/0.5). Lucifer and The Gifted will join the fray next week.
