Spotted Ratings, Sunday 11/11/18

  • With The Alec Baldwin Show finally gone on ABC, the net gave the last two hours of the night to Robin Roberts specials on Michelle Obama (0.7) and country music (0.4), making for a block that didn't look too different from Shark Tank and Alec. They had a rough lead-in from Dancing with the Stars: Juniors (0.6), which fell to a new low at 8/7c.
  • The NFL was back on CBS to boost 60 Minutes (2.4), God Friended Me (1.1) and NCIS: Los Angeles (0.8), though all could adjust down a bit since they started 10 minutes after the listed times. Without the NFL, Fox's animation (1.0/1.0/1.0) managed to stay out of fractional territory, but Rel fell back to a 0.5. And Sunday Night Football (5.7/6.1/5.7) was down from last week's highs but still a little better than usual. Supergirl inched down to 0.3 on the CW.

Renewology Week 7: The CW's Rising Rookies and Slumping Superheroes

Here's a look at the big Renewology developments in week seven. There was very little week-to-week movement in R% on the big four this week, and a lot of it on the CW, so this week I'm just gonna run through a few CW shows.

Spotted Ratings, Friday 11/9/18

  • Fox Friday became even more dominant, as Last Man Standing (1.3), The Cool Kids (1.0) and Hell's Kitchen (0.8) were all up from last week. Meanwhile, CBS was down with MacGyver (0.7) and especially Hawaii Five-0 (0.7), which tied its season low, while Blue Bloods (0.8) was steady.
  • ABC's comedies (0.6/0.5) were even but Child Support fell back to 0.4. NBC is eyeing an 8/7c uptick for Blindspot (0.5), as is the CW with Dynasty (0.2).

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 11/7/18

  • It was a night full of rebounds from Halloween, as the ABC comedies (1.3/1.1/1.4/1.0) made it most to all of the way back to their ratings from two weeks ago. However, A Million Little Things fell to its first 0.7 at 10/9c. NBC's Chicago trio (1.2/1.3/1.1) and Fox's Empire (1.5) and Star (1.1) were, like the ABC comedies, somewhere between Halloween and two weeks ago.
  • It was an above average night for CBS, as SEAL Team (0.9) is actually eyeing a new season high, while Survivor (1.6) and Criminal Minds (0.8) had their best numbers in a month.
  • And the CW's All American is trying to hang onto a second straight 0.3, despite Riverdale (0.4) dropping in the prelims this week.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 11/6/18

FINALS UPDATE: ABC News 2018 Midterm Election (1.2), CBS News: Election Night (0.8), The Vote: America's Future (1.3) and The Flash (R) (0.2) adjusted down.

  • NBC (1.4), ABC (1.3) and CBS (0.9) all devoted a full three hours to coverage of the midterm elections.
  • The CW (0.3/0.2) went into repeats, leaving Fox's The Gifted (0.7) and Lethal Weapon (0.7) as the only original entertainment programs on broadcast. Both were (unless preempted for local elections coverage) up a little.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 11/5/18

FINALS UPDATE: The Voice (1.8) adjusted up while Dancing with the Stars (0.9, -0.2), The Good Doctor (1.0, -0.3) and Manifest (1.2) adjusted down.

  • Back from a week off, NBC's Manifest (1.3) lost just a tenth from last week in the prelims, which seems like an OK hold since The Voice (1.7/1.8) had a 1.9 on that night.
  • ABC's The Good Doctor (1.3) pulled into a tie at 10/9c, building out of Dancing with the Stars (1.1), but expect downward adjustments for both due to Monday Night Football preemptions.
  • Fox's 9-1-1 (1.2) took a hit at 9/8c, but its lead-in The Resident (1.0) kept hanging in there. The CBS comedies (1.0/0.8) and Bull (0.8) were down a notch, as was Arrow (0.3) on the CW.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 11/4/18

FINALS UPDATE: Sunday Night Football (7.4, +0.7) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (1.1), Madam Secretary (0.5), Football Night in America p2 (1.4, -0.9), Football Night in America p3 (3.4, -2.0), NFL Overrun (5.5, -0.3) and The OT (3.8, -0.2) adjusted down.

  • ABC handed 8:00-10:00 over to a two-hour Mickey Mouse anniversary special (1.0) and considerably improved its ratings in that period. But it was no help at all to The Alec Baldwin Show, which made it four weeks in a row at 0.3.
  • It was a huge week for the NFL, as Sunday Night Football (6.7ish) should adjust up close to season-high levels, while a big late afternoon lead-in on Fox boosted The Simpsons (1.9), Bob's Burgers (1.3) and Family Guy (1.1) to at or near season highs of their own.
  • CBS saw God Friended Me (0.8) and NCIS: Los Angeles (0.7) swap ratings; the former seemingly got more help from local market NFL this week, as the 7:00 hour averaged a preliminary 1.2. The CW was even with Supergirl (0.4) and Charmed (0.3).
