FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.1) adjusted up while SEAL Team (R) (0.3) and A Little Late with Lilly Singh Special (0.4) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The two-hour season finale of America's Got Talent (1.5) was down big vs. last year's 2.1, and there was little interest at 10/9c in a preview of upcoming late night show A Little Late with Lilly Singh (0.5).
  • The only good news for the Talent finale was that it hurt the competitors; both Big Brother (1.0) and the two-hour finale of MasterChef (0.7/0.8) were down week-to-week, with year-to-year woes similar to AGT.

FINALS UPDATE: Bring the Funny (0.6) and Mysteries Decoded (0.1) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The three-hour season finale of Bachelor in Paradise (1.4/1.3/1.1) tied or slightly beat last year's 1.25 finale.
  • The performance finale of America's Got Talent (1.5/1.6) got a little week-to-week boost but significantly trailed last year's 2.3. The season finale of Bring the Funny (0.7) was even.

FINALS UPDATE: American Ninja Warrior (1.0), NBC Primetime Preview Show (0.4) and Whose Line Is It Anyway? (R) (0.2) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Back to premiering a week before the start of the TV season, Dancing with the Stars (1.0) was preliminarily even with last year's 1.0 opener on Premiere Monday. Its lead-out was a little-watched Beyonce special (0.4).
  • NBC's American Ninja Warrior (1.1) would be eyeing a season high if not preempted for football, and that lead-in went to an NBC fall preview show (0.5). With some dancing-themed competition, So You Think You Can Dance remained stuck at 0.4 on finale night.

FINALS UPDATE: Bachelor in Paradise (1.2) adjusted up.


Spotted Ratings, Sunday 8/25/19


FINALS UPDATE: The $100,000 Pyramid (0.7), Big Brother (1.2) and NFL Preseason Football (1.5, +0.2) adjusted up while To Tell the Truth (0.5), Instinct (0.3) and America's Got Talent (R) (0.5, -0.2) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's first two game shows (0.8/0.6) were even while To Tell the Truth (0.6) had a small rebound. But Big Brother (1.1) lost some of the steam it picked up last week, and a double-dip of What Just Happened??! with Fred Savage actually produced a 0.1 in its special 8:30 episode.
  • NBC was the one with a national preseason game this week (1.4/1.5/1.1), and it looks to have done similar to or a bit better than last week's Fox game.

FINALS UPDATE: No adjustments.

WHAT MATTERS:

  • The Big Brother uptick on Sunday continued to Wednesday (1.3), where it tied its season high again and was up by 0.2 from last Wednesday. NBC was even with America's Got Talent (1.1) and Songland (0.7), while Hollywood Game Night (0.4) got even lower in a move to Wednesday 10/9c (tying last week's The InBetween finale).
  • And the CW's Hypnotize Me (0.2) is looking to join Pandora as a second CDub original to hit 0.2 this week after multiple episodes at 0.1.

FINALS UPDATE: Grand Hotel (0.4) and The Late Late Show (R) (0.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:

  • On the CW, I Ship It (0.1) became the latest CW Seed comedy to get a tryout on the main network.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Celebrity Family Feud (0.8) was back to originals, but it was no help to The $100,000 Pyramid (0.6) and To Tell the Truth (0.5) which each fell to season lows.
  • CBS' Big Brother (1.3) and the 9/8c edition of Instinct (0.5) are both eyeing season highs, though CBS numbers might be slightly affected by a small late afternoon NFL overrun. Fox won the evening with a national preseason NFL game (1.2/1.2/1.0).

FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.1) and BH90210 (1.0) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • BH90210's run as a sensation was short-lived, as it took a whooping 40% week two drop to a 0.9 in week two. It barely edged its MasterChef lead-in (0.8) in adults 18-49, and again went well behind it in adults 18-34 (0.3 vs. 0.5).
  • America's Got Talent (1.1) began its Wednesday run, down around 25% from the 1.5 with which it opened on Wednesday last year (similar to its Tuesday declines this season). It led into the original return of Songland (0.7) at 9/8c, but The InBetween (0.4) couldn't benefit at 10/9c.
  • Elsewhere, Big Brother (1.0) was down a notch in a move to the 8/7c hour, while Card Sharks (0.5) and Match Game (0.5) finished their runs even with last week.

A18-49+ Season Comparison Chart (thru 2018-19)


This is an interactive chart allowing you to compare seasonal A18-49+ ratings (through 2018-19) for up to three different shows. It includes the 149 broadcast scripted shows with at least a 250 Career A18-49+, the same shows included on the Career A18-49+ Sortable Table.

Career A18-49+ Sortable Table (thru 2018-19)


This is the Career A18-49+ sortable table, with A18-49+ numbers that can be used to evaluate the full run of a series. This includes Career A18-49+, the sum of each individual season's historical-adjusted A18-49 rating, as well as how many times each show went over some of the A18-49+ label thresholds.

A few quick notes about what's in here:
  • This includes all 149 broadcast scripted series with a career A18-49+ total of 250 or higher. Unlike in previous years, that means a handful of netlet shows are in the mix (though of course they can be filtered out easily). The 45 "hit for CW" and 35 "solid for CW" labels are applied to the "hit" and "solid" counts for those shows.
  • This number will be incomplete for shows that aired before 2001, but to help account for this, the number of missing seasons is included in parentheses under the "Seasons" column. You can also filter in or out the shows that have missing seasons, as well as the shows still "active" (and thus still adding to their counts).

  • In the specials world, two hours of gymnastics coverage on NBC (0.5/0.6) handily outrated an invisible Teen Choice Awards on Fox (0.2/0.3).
