Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 9/26/18


FINALS UPDATE: Survivor (1.7) and Chicago Fire (1.3) adjusted up while Star (1.4) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • On Premiere Wednesday, it was ABC's turn to begin rolling out its new fall 2018 slate. Comedy Single Parents (1.3) looked maybe just a hair better than a typical episode of American Housewife in its 9:30 premiere after Modern Family (1.6), while new drama A Million Little Things (1.1) matched the year-ago second season premiere of Designated Survivor. It's a better debut night than last year's 9:30/10:00 premieres of failed The Mayor (1.2) and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (1.0) on a Tuesday, but perhaps not by the margin ABC was hoping for.  Returning comedies The Goldbergs (1.4), American Housewife (1.2 in a move to 8:30) and Modern Family (1.6) were all down 20-25% year-to-year in their season premieres.
  • NBC put its three Chicago dramas together on the same night and got 1.2's across the board from Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD. It was a competent trio, but the shows generally skewed older than last season (perhaps benefiting in total viewers from no CBS drama competition). It was only a small improvement in Plus on the year-ago evening which led off with The Blacklist and Law and Order: SVU.
  • Fox brought back the Lee Daniels duo of Empire (1.9) and Star (1.5), combining to go 19% below their premieres on the same night, and two tenths above their May season finales. For Empire, it's a continuation of the improved year-to-year declines that we saw from this show in the spring. (Last year's premiere was down a whooping 42%, and this one will be 20%ish.)
  • And after premiering SEAL Team on the opening Wednesday last year, CBS returned to its strategy of offering a 90-minute Survivor premiere (1.6) followed by a 90-minute Big Brother season finale (1.7) on Premiere Wednesday.  Survivor looked healthy, within a couple tenths of last fall's premiere, while Big Brother tied its highest rating of the summer but was (like most of the Big Bro season) down 20%ish from last year's finale.
