Spotted Ratings, Monday 9/24/18


FINALS UPDATE: The Big Bang Theory (2.5) adjusted up while Dancing with the Stars (1.0) and The Good Doctor (1.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • For the second straight year, a new 10/9c drama popped on Premiere Monday. This time, it was NBC's turn, as Manifest (2.2) went big enough to grow on its The Voice lead-in (2.0). It's one of the biggest post-Voice premieres ever in A18-49+, perhaps even beating where This Is Us started two years ago (229), and it didn't get a ton of help from The Voice which was down 20%ish from last fall's premiere.
  • Despite bringing The Big Bang Theory (2.4) and Young Sheldon (1.7) over to Monday for a week, CBS was unable to create anything like the spark it got on Sheldon's premiere night a year ago; Big Bang was down close to 40% from the 4.1 on that night, while Sheldon dropped by over half and appears headed for a new series low. The network was then left with a mediocre at best 1.2 for Magnum P.I.'s premiere at 9/8c, as that show faces the prospect of two unproven newbies as its lead-in next week, followed by a 0.9 for the timeslot premiere of Bull at 10/9c.
  • Fox debuted its sophomore duo of The Resident (1.1) and 9-1-1 (1.6). The former tied its highest Monday rating from last season, while the latter had basically a typical raw number from season one. There's definitely an opportunity for this to be a big growth night vs. last year's Lucifer and The Gifted (which premiered at 1.1/1.5 last year).
  • And the new 10/9c drama that popped a year ago, The Good Doctor (1.4), was taken down a peg by the increased competition in its hour. Even if it doesn't adjust down (and it's pending a Monday Night Football preemption) it would be down over a third from its year-ago premiere, and three tenths below its season finale in March. Dancing with the Stars (1.1) will be down at least three tenths from last fall's 1.4 on premiere Monday (it opened with a 1.6 the previous week).

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 9/23/18


FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.4), Sunday Night Football (6.4, +0.7), The OT (3.7, +0.2) and 9-1-1 (2.6, +0.4) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (R) (1.0), NCIS: Los Angeles (R) (0.4), Football Night in America p2 (1.5, -0.6), Football Night in America p3 (2.9, -1.4), NFL Overrun (4.9, -0.3), Family Guy (R) (0.8) and Rel (R) (0.5) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Fox used its second late afternoon NFL lead-in of the season for a Sunday preview of sophomore drama 9-1-1 (2.5/2.0), which moves to its new Monday 9/8c timeslot starting tonight. Like Rel from two weeks ago, this show aired live in all time zones and thus should adjust up in finals. It's abundantly clear that this show moved the needle much, much more than Rel; its 2.5 in the 8:00 half-hour was 47% above last week's Rel prelim, even though the NFL 7:30 prelim was down about 20% (3.5 vs. a 4.4 two weeks ago).
  • Elsewhere on the eve of the new season, ABC finished up its summer of game shows with new season lows for Celebrity Family Feud (0.6) and a double dose of The $100,000 Pyramid (0.6/0.5). NBC had a slightly down Sunday Night Football (5.5/6.0/5.2) and CBS' Big Brother (1.3) had its last Sunday airing of the summer.

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 9/20/18


FINALS UPDATE: Young Sheldon (R) (1.1), Big Brother (1.5), S.W.A.T. (R) (0.5, -0.2), The Good Place (R) (0.4, -0.2), The Good Place (R) (0.4, -0.2) and Law and Order: SVU (R) (0.5, -0.3) adjusted down.

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

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 9/19/18


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.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 9/18/18


FINALS UPDATE: Castaways (0.4) and America's Got Talent (2.3) adjusted up while NCIS: New Orleans (R) (0.5), The Paley Center Salutes This Is Us (0.8), The Flash (R) (0.2) and Legends of Tomorrow (R) (0.2) adjusted down.


Spotted Ratings, Monday 9/17/18


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.

FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (7.0, +0.8) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (R) (2.2, -0.4), NCIS: Los Angeles (R) (0.6), Football Night in America p2 (2.0, -0.4), Football Night in America p3 (3.6, -1.2) and Bob's Burgers (R) (0.4, -0.5) adjusted down.

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.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 9/9/18


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.

FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.5) and Sunday Night Football (6.7) adjusted up while Football Night in America p3 (2.8, -1.1) adjusted down.

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).
