Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/10/17


FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (5.4) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (1.0), Football Night in America p2 (0.6), Football Night in America p3 (2.3), The OT (4.3) and The Simpsons (2.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Fox's live-action Sunday comedies took the night off, and it was a bad night to miss as The Simpsons (2.7) rode the NFL boost to its highest ratings of the season. Bob's Burgers (1.6/1.3) aired a one-hour episode from 8:30 to 9:30, and at 8:30 it was higher than any Ghosted episode. Family Guy (1.2) aired at 9:30 and was of course a big improvement on The Last Man on Earth.
  • ABC did strong business with a showing of Frozen (1.2) from 8:00 to 10:00, though it was down a half-point from the film's broadcast debut last year. Reality special Encore! (0.5) garnered little interest at 10/9c, though America's Funniest Home Videos (0.9) did well in its return to the 7/6c hour.
  • Without NFL help, CBS' Wisdom of the Crowd (0.7) was on the low end, providing little help to NCIS: Los Angeles (0.8) and Madam Secretary (0.7). NBC was down just a bit from recent weeks with a 4.9ish prelim for Sunday Night Football.

Spotted Ratings, Friday 12/8/17


FINALS UPDATE: Blue Bloods (0.9) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's Once Upon a Time (0.5) and Agents of SHIELD (0.5) were finally together on the same night, with the latter dropping two tenths after last week's OK premiere.
  • Everything else on broadcast was original as well, and it was a big bounce-back night for CBS with MacGyver (0.9), Hawaii Five-0 (1.1) and Blue Bloods (1.0) all on the rise. Fox was up as well, with Hell's Kitchen (0.8) and The Exorcist (0.4) inching off of last week's lows. And the CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (0.2) and Jane the Virgin (0.3) made a one-off return to the scene after taking the last couple Fridays off.

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 12/7/17


FINALS UPDATE: Thursday Night Football (4.3) and Supernatural (0.6) adjusted up while Thursday Night Football Pregame (1.5) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC continued its holiday filler rollout with the return of The Great American Baking Show (0.8). It was down by two tenths from last year's premiere. It led out of another nice showing for some ABC holiday specials, as Shrek the Halls (1.0) and Toy Story That Time Forgot (0.9) were both up a tick from last year. 
  • CBS' The Big Bang Theory (2.8) and Young Sheldon (2.2) were on the rebound, with TBBT all the way back to tie its highest Thursday rating this fall. However, S.W.A.T. (0.9) dropped a tenth for the second straight week at 10/9c.
  • The CW's superhero fall finale week concluded with Arrow falling to its first 0.4 of the season (though it was still ahead of the 0.3 on Thanksgiving).

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 12/6/17


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Some of last week's ugliest droppers were on the rebound this Wednesday, with American Housewife up two tenths to 1.2 (though still on the low end compared with all its other points) and Empire (1.8) picking up a notch for Fox. The ABC comedy anchors The Goldbergs (1.5) and Modern Family (1.7) also edged upward, while Speechless (1.1) and Designated Survivor (0.7) were even.
  • On NBC, The Blacklist was MIA again as a repeat of last week's Pentatonix special (0.8) filled in at 8/7c. Lead-out dramas Law and Order: SVU (1.3) and Chicago PD (1.2) came back to earth a bit but were still a little above average.
  • The CBS dramas were back, with Criminal Minds (0.9) on the low end but SEAL Team hanging at 1.1. It had an assist from Survivor (1.8), which continued to look strong down the stretch of the season.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 12/5/17


FINALS UPDATE: NCIS (R) (0.9) and Chicago Med (1.2) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • In the middle of their Thursday Night Football hiatus, NBC comedies Will and Grace (1.8) and Superstore (1.1) returned for Christmas episodes leading out of The Voice (1.8), and both did pretty close to their usual deliveries on Thursday. With a reduced lead-in, Chicago Med (1.1) shed a couple tenths at 10/9c.
  • ABC's lineup returned after sitting out last week and mostly sitting out two weeks ago, and it was not a good look overall; The Middle (1.2), Fresh Off the Boat (0.9), Black-ish (1.0) as well as newbies The Mayor (0.7) and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (0.6) all tied their Halloween lows.
  • Fox's Lethal Weapon (1.0), The Mick (0.8) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (0.7) all matched last week, meaning the comedies held onto their upticks. On the CW, Legends of Tomorrow (0.6) was the first of the superhero shows to show a little growth vs. two weeks ago before the crossover, while The Flash was back down to 0.8. CBS (0.8/0.7/0.6) was in repeat mode, including a SEAL Team tryout in the 9:00 hour.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 12/4/17


FINALS UPDATE: The Great Christmas Light Fight (1.0), The Good Doctor (1.6), The Voice (1.8) and The Wall Special (0.9) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • A repeat of The Big Bang Theory (1.2) filled in for Kevin Can Wait and helped keep the original Man with a Plan at 1.1 at 8:30. However, Superior Donuts (0.9) and 9JKL (0.8) each shed a tenth in the 9:00 hour.
  • On Fox, The Gifted (0.8) is clearly limping to the finish late in the fall, losing another tenth after last week's preemption. Lucifer held at 0.9.
  • Pending a Monday Night Football preemption in Pittsburgh, ABC finished up The Good Doctor's fall run (1.7), leading out of the return of The Great Christmas Light Fight (1.1/1.2) in the first two hours. Light Fight had a 1.1 all three weeks last year and should be very close to that even with a finals drop. NBC's The Voice (1.8/1.9) and The Wall (1.0) are also pending an MNF preemption in Cincinnati.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/3/17


FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (6.4) and The OT (3.3) adjusted up while America's Funniest Home Videos (R) (0.7), NCIS: Los Angeles (R) (0.6), Football Night in America p2 (1.6) and Football Night in America p3 (3.1) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • With an underwhelming national NFL lead-in, Fox's The Simpsons (1.7), Ghosted (1.0) and Family Guy (1.1) were all down at least a couple tenths from the last time they had an NFL lead-in on November 12, but still up markedly from two weeks ago without such help.
  • Meanwhile, CBS was much stronger than usual for a non-NFL night, thanks to a two-hour Carol Burnett special (1.4/1.5) from 8:00-10:00. Though the raw demo rating is solid, the show skewed incredibly old, which is another way of saying it had very gaudy total viewership numbers (over 15 million in each hour).
  • ABC came back to earth somewhat after last week's spikes with America's Funniest Home Videos (1.0) and Shark Tank (0.9). And it was another good night for Sunday Night Football, which should end up around to slightly above last week's 6.0 after finals.

Spotted Ratings, Friday 12/1/17


FINALS UPDATE: Blue Bloods (0.8) and The Exorcist (0.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Marvel's Agents of SHIELD (0.7/0.6) joined the Friday mix for ABC with a two-hour premiere, about in line with the ratings it was doing throughout the second half of last season.
  • CBS had a little slippage with procedurals MacGyver (0.8) and Hawaii Five-0 (0.9), but Blindspot (0.7) was on the rebound for NBC. Hell's Kitchen (0.7) fell to a season low on Fox, leading into another 0.4 for The Exorcist.

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 11/30/17


FINALS UPDATE: The Big Bang Theory (2.5), Thursday Night Football (4.7) and Supernatural (0.6) adjusted up while Thursday Night Football Pregame (1.7) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS series The Big Bang Theory (2.4), Young Sheldon (2.1), Mom (1.4), Life in Pieces (1.1) and S.W.A.T. (1.0) gave back most to all of their Thanksgiving bounces from last week, and were close to their results from two weeks ago. S.W.A.T. was able to stay in the ones, putting it ahead of two weeks ago and back within a tenth of its series premiere four weeks ago.
  • On ABC, TGIT is over for the fall but the network had a similar average to a typical TGIT night thanks to A Charlie Brown Christmas (actually up a tenth year-to-year to 1.6) and a two-hour Wonderful World of Disney special (1.2).
  • Fox saw Gotham finally down to 0.8 for the first time, after an almost season-long string of low 0.9's. The season's penultimate edition of The Orville matched its 0.9 from two weeks ago.
  • Supernatural (0.5) bounced back some but not all the way from last week's Thanskgiving debacle; this would be the show's lowest result this season other than last week. And NBC had an above average Thursday Night Football thanks to the Dallas Cowboys.
