Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 7/17/19

FINALS UPDATE: Songland (R) (0.5) adjusted up while Love Island (0.5) and First Responders Live (0.5) adjusted down.

  • Back from two weeks off, ABC's Press Your Luck (0.7) and Card Sharks (0.5) each hit new Wednesday lows, losing each hour head-to-head against Fox's MasterChef (0.8) and First Responders Live (0.6) which tied their season highs. The consolation for ABC was that Match Game (0.6) stayed even at 10/9c and actually built from Sharks.
  • CBS' Love Island edged back up to 0.6 as it got back to airing alongside Big Brother (1.0). Dramas The InBetween (0.4) and Jane the Virgin (0.2) were steady.

FINALS UPDATE: Blood and Treasure (0.4) adjusted up while The Goldbergs (R) (0.4) and Bring the Funny (0.9) adjusted down.

  • Week two of Bring the Funny (1.0) fell by two tenths after a steady America's Got Talent lead-in (1.5), putting it in line with week two of Songland which also scored a 1.0.
  • Though it was free from The Bachelorette competition, there was no Tuesday rebound for Love Island (0.5), while Blood and Treasure (0.3) failed to improve in a move to 9/8c.
  • The CW found little interest in new drama Pandora (0.1) at 8/7c; its lead-out The 100 (0.2) improved on Pandora in the demo, even while dropping by 150,000 total viewers.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 7/15/19

FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelorette (1.7) adjusted up while Whose Line Is It Anyway? (0.2) adjusted down.

  • ABC's The Bachelorette (1.6/1.7) grew to a new season high, and helped usher CBS' Love Island down to 0.5 for the first time on a weeknight. The Love Island lead-in did no favors to The Code, which fell to its first 0.3.
  • Bachelorette lead-out Grand Hotel (0.6) preliminarily eked out an uptick of its own, while NBC (0.8/0.9/0.7) and Fox (0.6/0.5) were even-ish. At least in the prelims, the CW's original duo (0.3/0.3) was up.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 7/14/19

FINALS UPDATE: Celebrity Family Feud (0.8) adjusted up while America's Got Talent (R) (0.4) adjusted down.

  • ABC had a softer first half of the night with a two-tenth drop from Celebrity Family Feud (0.7), but The $100,000 Pyramid (0.8) managed to break even and grow from CFF, while To Tell The Truth (0.7) was up a notch.
  • Also on the uptick was Fox's What Just Happened??! with Fred Savage (0.3), thanks in large part to stronger repeat lead-ins from the cartoons (0.4/0.4/0.5). CBS' Big Brother (1.0) and Instinct (0.3) were even.

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 7/11/19

FINALS UPDATE: MasterChef (0.8) adjusted up.

  • Back from a week off for the holiday, ABC Thursday saw declines from Holey Moley (0.8) and Family Food Fight (0.5), but an uptick from Reef Break (0.4) at 10/9c.
  • Big Brother (1.0) moved to Thursday and matched Wednesday's rating, as did night three of Love Island (0.6). Fox was even with MasterChef (0.7) and Spin the Wheel (0.6).

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 7/10/19

FINALS UPDATE: Big Brother (1.1) and MasterChef (0.8) adjusted up while Ellen's Game of Games (R) (0.6) adjusted down.

  • Night two of Love Island held onto the 0.6 from Tuesday's premiere, while Big Brother (1.0) was down a tick in its move to 9/8c. Fox returned to originals with a steady MasterChef (0.7) and an uptick from First Responders Live (0.5).
  • ABC preempted its game show lineup in favor of the ESPY Awards (0.8/0.9/0.8), which were about in line with last year's 0.9.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 7/9/19

FINALS UPDATE: America's Got Talent (1.5) and MLB All-Star Game (1.9, +0.2) adjusted up while American Housewife (R) (0.3) and The Goldbergs (R) (0.3) adjusted down.

  • Two months after the Paradise Hotel debacle on Fox, another love-themed reality series expected to chew up a lot of hours had a similarly rough start. CBS' Love Island (0.6/0.5) looks to have just barely outrated the May Paradise Hotel (0.5) premiere.
  • NBC had much more promising news with its own reality premiere, Bring the Funny (1.2) at 10/9c after America's Got Talent (1.4). At least preliminarily, it actually managed to top the Songland premiere six weeks ago (1.1), even though Talent was three tenths higher on that night.
  • Fox topped the night with the MLB All-Star Game (1.6/1.7/1.6), though it was down 20%ish from last year's 2.1.

  • Finally airing all originals for consecutive weeks, ABC got some game show improvement as Celebrity Family Feud (0.9) and The $100,000 Pyramid (0.8) both grew, while To Tell the Truth (0.7) was even.
  • There was no change for week two of CBS' Big Brother (1.0) / Instinct (0.3) / The Good Fight (0.2), nor for the second episode of What Just Happened??! with Fred Savage (0.2) on Fox.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 6/30/19

FINALS UPDATE: What Just Happened??! with Fred Savage (0.2) adjusted down.

  • The Sunday premiere of Big Brother (1.0) was down two tenths from last year's Sunday opener, in line with the y2y declines for the first two nights of the season. It led into a little-watched return for sophomore drama Instinct (0.3), dipping below even its worst summer ratings from last year. And episode five of The Good Fight's run on the main network dipped to its first 0.2.
  • ABC had all three of its game shows for the first time since their premiere night three weeks ago. While Celebrity Family Feud (0.8) was down two tenths from that night, it did help The $100,000 Pyramid (0.7) and To Tell the Truth (0.7) inch up from two weeks ago when they aired after a Trump interview. (They were down two tenths and one tenth, respectively, from their premiere ratings.)
  • And Fox couldn't spark any interest in its aftershow parody What Just Happened??! with Fred Savage (0.3), which was a notch below the cartoon repeats earlier in the night (0.4/0.4/0.4).
