WHAT MATTERS:
  • Numbers to come. CBS and NBC preliminaries are pending local Thursday Night Football preemptions.

FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.5), America's Got Talent (2.1) and MasterChef (1.0) adjusted up while SEAL Team (R) (0.4) and I Feel Bad (1.1) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC used its two-hour America's Got Talent finale (2.0) for a double-episode preview of Thursday-bound sitcom I Feel Bad (1.2/0.8). Talent was down a steep 33% from last season's 3.0 finale, while I Feel Bad was at least preliminarily down 23% vs. last year's 1.3 hour of The Good Place. But if Talent adjusts up and/or IFB adjusts down (and Talent ran two minutes into the 10:00 hour), the year-to-year declines will end up similar.
  • Fox's MasterChef (0.9/1.1) also finished its season, down two tenths/one tenth from last year's final two hours (though the half-hours (0.9/1.0/1.1/1.2) suggest one or both hours could be close to adjusting up). CBS' Big Brother (1.4) will continue into Premiere Wednesday next week.

FINALS UPDATE: Primetime Emmy Awards (2.4, +0.3) adjusted up while Castaways (0.5), Castaways (0.4, -0.2) and The Good Doctor (R) (0.3, -0.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was NBC's turn with the Primetime Emmy Awards, which meant the show couldn't air in its usual Sunday slot thanks to the NFL, though it did air much closer to the start of the season compared with the last several late-August ceremonies on NBC. The preliminary hours (2.2/2.3/1.9) were virtually identical to last year's 2.2/2.3/2.0 on CBS, which later adjusted up to a 2.5.
  • With the Monday reality staples wrapped for the summer, there was not much audience elsewhere on broadcast. Two hours of Castaways on ABC (0.6) were preliminarily close to a special on the Manson cult on Fox (0.6/0.7). CBS dramas Salvation (0.4) and Elementary (0.5) wrapped for the season.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Back from a week off and up against week two of the NFL, Celebrity Family Feud (0.9) and The $100,000 Pyramid (0.7) each fell to new season lows. (They still made for an improvement on the same night a year ago, when Pyramid fell to a 0.5 at 10/9c against the NFL and the Emmys.)
  • CBS' lineup, including 60 Minutes (3.2/1.9) and Big Brother (1.8/1.5), started 7 minutes after their listed times due to overrun from the national late-afternoon NFL window. With the Dallas Cowboys in primetime, NBC's Sunday Night Football (6.3/6.5/5.8) was preliminarily down a touch from last week's Sunday opener.

FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.6), Sunday Night Football (7.5, +0.9) and Rel (1.9, +0.2) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (R) (0.8), Hawaii Five-0 (R) (0.4), Football Night in America p2 (1.2, -1.2), Football Night in America p3 (3.4, -2.2), NFL Overrun (5.6), The OT (4.2, -0.2) and Family Guy (R) (0.6) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Fox got off to an early start with its 2018-19 entertainment slate, using its first late afternoon NFL lead-in (with a 4.4 rating in the 7:30 half-hour) to preview upcoming sitcom Rel (1.7); it'll return in its regular 9:30/8:30c slot in three weeks. This looks to be down quite a bit from last year's preview of The Orville, which had a 2.3 prelim for the full 8:00 hour, including a 2.6 in the 8:00 half-hour, leading out of an even lower preliminary 7:30 NFL rating (4.2).
  • NBC had its first Sunday night NFL game of the season, averaging a preliminary 6.6ish from 8:30 to 11:00. That's down in the 15-20% range from last year's opening Sunday, which had an 8.0 prelim (later adjusting up to 9.1).
  •  And ABC saw a severe year-to-year decline from the Miss America Competition (0.7). It was down four tenths vs. last year's 1.1.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The NFL regular season kicked off on NBC, a little later than the scheduled start time due to a rain delay. Preliminary ratings in the 9:00 (7.0) and 10:00 (6.1) hours were down in the general vicinity of 10% from the kickoff game last year (which had 7.6/6.9 in those preliminary hours).

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 8/15/18


FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.7) adjusted up while Supergirl (R) (0.1) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • America's Got Talent kicked off its Wednesday results shows with a 1.5 rating, down by 29% from the first results show on the year ago evening (2.1). That's not too different from the y2y drops we've been seeing from it lately on Tuesday, but it would be toward the steep end if it doesn't adjust up. In a move to 9:00 to 11:00 and a reunion with its longtime lead-in Got Talent, World of Dance (1.1) matched last week, but now with a 1.2/1.0 hourly breakdown rather than the 1.0/1.2 from a week ago.
  • In its first head-to-head with Got Talent, Big Brother (1.6) came out on top in the prelims, with its highest Wednesday prelim of the season to date. And the season finale of 24 Hours to Hell and Back (1.0) saw the show return to building on its lead-in from MasterChef (0.9).

WHAT MATTERS:
  • In its first Monday episode of the season, ABC's Bachelor in Paradise (1.3/1.2) perked up a little bit from its season premiere last Tuesday (1.1). That would be down from last year's season premiere on a Monday (1.6) but right in line with the 1.3 in Monday of week two last year.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Thanks to overrun from the PGA Championship, which was massively up year-to-year, the CBS primetime lineup was delayed by 20 minutes. CBS averaged a 1.5 in the 8:00 hour (which included 40 minutes of the Big Brother episode on the East Coast).
  • ABC's game shows (1.0/0.8/0.7) matched last week while NBC's Shades of Blue (0.6) is preliminarily eyeing its first 0.6 since the season premiere. And on Fox, it was another step down for the already tiny-rated Teen Choice Awards (0.3/0.4), which averaged a 0.5 each of the previous two years.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 8/7/18


FINALS UPDATE: Beat Shazam (0.7) adjusted up while Making It (0.9) and The Outpost (0.1) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's Bachelor in Paradise (1.1/1.0) got a Tuesday premiere on the night after The Bachelorette's finale. It was way down from last year's Monday premiere (1.6) but basically even with last year's first Tuesday episode (1.1), so we'll have to see how much additional audience joins in next Monday. At 10/9c came the premiere of reality series Castaways (0.7), which didn't drum up a lot of interest but didn't really look any worse than where The Proposal premiered out of The Bachelorette (0.8 out of a 1.4).
  • NBC still ruled across the board on Tuesday with America's Got Talent (1.8/2.1) and week two of Making It (1.0), which would be down just a tenth from last week if it holds in finals. (Though the 1.2 -> 0.8 breakdown is not pretty.)
  • Fox's Beat Shazam fell to its first 0.6, and The 100 held at 0.3 in its season finale.

FINALS UPDATE: Elementary (0.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The three-hour season finale of The Bachelorette (1.8/1.8/1.7) got its usual hefty spike but was still roughly three tenths behind last year's finale. That's just a bit larger year-to-year decline than the season as a whole (which should finish about -9%, or up a touch in Plus).
  • Fox went with a two-hour edition of So You Think You Can Dance (0.6) while NBC was even to narrowly down with American Ninja Warrior (1.0/1.1) and Dateline (0.7).
