Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 4/13/21


FINALS UPDATE: FBI: Most Wanted (R) (0.4) and This Is Us (0.8) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's Big Sky (0.5/0.4) had a double-episode return from a two-month hiatus in diminished fashion, headed for a new series low after hitting 0.6 for most of its winter episodes (and a 0.7 for the winter finale).
  • The Fox drama duo of The Resident (0.5) and Prodigal Son (0.4) was also back after multiple weeks off, with the former down from its last few prelims but Prodigal steady/up.
  • NBC got a rebound from Young Rock (0.6) at 8/7c, but no such luck for Kenan (0.4), This Is Us (0.7) or New Amsterdam (0.4). The CW matched last week's prelims with The Flash (0.3) and Supergirl (0.1).

FINALS UPDATE: American Idol (0.8) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS returned from a long basketball break with The Neighborhood (0.6) and Bob Hearts Abishola (0.5) down a tick from four weeks ago, while All Rise (0.4) and Bull (0.4) were even.
  • ABC's American Idol (0.7) upticked, pulling into a preliminary tie with NBC's The Voice (0.7), and the CW's All American (0.2) was back from more than a month off.

FINALS UPDATE: NCIS: New Orleans (R) (0.4) and The Great North (0.4) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (0.9, -0.3) and The Equalizer (R) (0.5) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS hourly numbers (1.2/0.6/0.4/0.3) include almost a half hour of Masters overrun and (particularly the early hours) should adjust down in finals.
  •  ABC looks a bit down from last week with American Idol (0.7/0.8) and The Rookie (0.4) while the Fox animation (0.2/0.4/0.3/0.4/0.5) was about even with two weeks ago. NBC's Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.3) inched up alongside the return of Good Girls (0.3) to originals.

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/8/21


FINALS UPDATE: Station 19 (0.8) and B Positive (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's new drama Rebel (0.5) had a fairly quiet start in the 10/9c hour, looking no better than most of the A Million Little Things episodes in this slot all season. A Station 19 (0.7) and Grey's Anatomy (0.9) crossover in the preceding hours was pretty similar to last week.
  • NBC saw a big fall for week two of the Law and Order: SVU (0.9) and Law and Order: Organized Crime (0.8) pairing, though SVU remained way ahead of its season high from before last Thursday. Manifest (0.5) was also on the downturn in the 8/7c hour.
  • CBS perhaps benefited from the weaker NBC and was mostly a bit up from last week's prelims with Young Sheldon (0.7), week two of United States of Al (0.6), Mom (0.6), B Positive (0.4) and Clarice (0.3). Last Man Standing (0.4) returned at 9/8c to lead into The Moodys (0.3), and the CW's Walker (0.2) and Legacies (0.1) were back from a break.

FINALS UPDATE: Home Economics (0.6), The Conners (0.7), Chicago Fire (0.8) and Chicago PD (0.8) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's new comedy Home Economics (0.5) looked like a pretty typical American Housewife episode on premiere night, down a notch from its The Goldbergs (0.6) lead-in and its The Conners (0.6) lead-out. Later in the night, A Million Little Things (0.4) returned to its very first timeslot on Wednesday at 10/9c, matching its last Thursday rating with a second 9:30 edition of The Conners (0.6) leading into it.
  • The CW premiered drama Kung Fu with a 0.2 in the 8/7c hour. It had a solid total viewer audience of 1.373 million, more than double any Riverdale audience in the hour this season. Nancy Drew ticked back up to a preliminary 0.1 at 9/8c.
  • NBC's Chicago trio (0.8/0.7/0.7) had a mostly down night after returning so well a week ago, but it was still enough to rout CBS' Tough As Nails (0.4), SEAL Team (0.4) and S.W.A.T. (0.4). Fox led the way with steady The Masked Singer (1.1) and Game of Talents (0.6).

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 4/6/21


FINALS UPDATE: NCIS (1.0), FBI (0.8), FBI: Most Wanted (0.7) and This Is Us (0.8) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Back from another break, the This Is Us slump continued with another new low 0.7, which will certainly finish below the previous low 0.84 even with an upward adjustment. Its return was also no help to the surrounding programs, Young Rock (0.5) and Kenan (0.4) and New Amsterdam (0.4).
  • ABC's Pooch Perfect (0.4) had a rough week two, dropping behind all preliminary results for previous occupant To Tell the Truth in the hour.
  • In happier news, The Flash (0.3) was on the rebound for the CW, and the CBS dramas (0.9/0.7/0.6) returned from a couple weeks off in fairly steady fashion.

Tuesday, April 6, 2021

FINALS UPDATE: Championship Central (1.2), NCAA Championship (4.1, +1.1) and America's Most Wanted (0.4) adjusted up while The Neighborhood (R) (0.5, -0.7) adjusted down.


Monday, April 5, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 4/4/21


FINALS UPDATE: America's Funniest Home Videos (0.6), The Equalizer (0.7) and Ellen's Game of Games (0.3) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • With no more basketball help, CBS was on the downswing with The Equalizer (0.6), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.5) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.4), while The Rookie (0.5) perked up following American Idol (0.7/0.8) to give ABC a win in each hour.
  • It was very ugly on the other big four networks as Fox's Bless the Harts fell to a 0.1 without its usual animated teammates, and two-hour special Malika the Lion Queen (0.1/0.2) did not do much better. NBC's Ellen's Game of Games fell to a 0.2 leading into Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.2).

Friday, April 2, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/1/21


FINALS UPDATE: Station 19 (0.8), Grey's Anatomy (0.9), Young Sheldon (0.7), United States of Al (0.6), Law and Order: SVU (1.7) and Law and Order: Organized Crime (1.6) adjusted up while Clarice (0.2) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC got a serious breakout performance from its two-hour Law and Order crossover as Christopher Meloni returned to the universe, with SVU (1.6) posting the biggest rating for a scripted series without a football lead-out this season and Meloni's Organized Crime premiere (1.5) not far behind. It will be the biggest night for SVU in the Plus era by a wide margin (its previous high was a 182 way back in 2004).
  • Leading into the crossover was the season three premiere of Manifest (0.6), nearly a year after its last season's finale. It was down from its last season premiere (0.9 on Monday at 10/9c in January 2020).
  • The night's other premieres ranged from quiet (a 0.5 for sitcom United States of Al leading out of Young Sheldon (0.6)) to disastrous (a 0.3/0.2 return for The Moodys following Hell's Kitchen (0.7)).
  • And ABC's Station 19 (0.7), Grey's Anatomy (0.8) and A Million Little Things (0.4) took a hit against the stronger NBC competition.

FINALS UPDATE: American Housewife (0.5), Chicago Med (0.9), Chicago Fire (1.0), Chicago PD (1.0) and The Masked Singer (1.2) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • One Chicago (0.8/0.9/0.9) had a strong return from a week off, matching its finals and beating its prelims from two weeks ago.
  • But it was even to down for most of the rest of broadcast, with ABC's comedies (0.5/0.4/0.5/0.3) eyeing potential new lows. Fox's Game of Talents fell to its first prelim 0.6 after The Masked Singer (1.1), and Nancy Drew hit the CW's second preliminary 0.0 of the week.

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 3/30/21


FINALS UPDATE: Black-ish (0.5), FBI (R) (0.5), FBI: Most Wanted (R) (0.4) and The Masked Singer (R) (0.4) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC opened new reality series Pooch Perfect with a 0.6 in the 8/7c hour, toward the high end of what To Tell the Truth did in the hour in the winter. Black-ish (0.4), Mixed-ish (0.4) and Soul of a Nation (0.3) stayed low.
  • The CW's Supergirl returned with its first original episode in ten months, hitting a 0.1 on premiere night after The Flash (0.2). That's an enormous drop from its 0.37 season premiere in fall 2019, but the show was mostly getting borderline 0.1-0.2's at the end of last season.
  • NBC comedies Young Rock (0.5) and Kenan (0.4) will both need finals help to avoid new lows, while New Amsterdam dropped to 0.4 after a This Is Us repeat (0.2). CBS and Fox were also in repeats.

FINALS UPDATE: The Good Doctor (0.6), NCAA Basketball (1.7, +0.2), The Voice (0.8) and America's Most Wanted (0.4) adjusted up while NCAA Basketball (1.4) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • In their second head-to-head duel, ABC's American Idol (0.7) managed a rounded tie against a sinking The Voice (0.7) (though The Voice won most of the half-hours and should be closer to adjusting up). A steady The Good Doctor (0.5) widened its lead over Debris (0.3) at 10/9c.
  • CBS averaged a preliminary 1.5 for more basketball, while the CW found a 0.0 with the second edition of All American Stories, well over two months after the first half aired.

FINALS UPDATE: America's Funniest Home Videos (0.7), NCAA Overrun (2.3, +0.9), 60 Minutes (1.1, +0.2), The Equalizer (0.8) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.6) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • With another round of NCAA basketball overrun (1.4), CBS was roughly even in the prelims with 60 Minutes (0.9), The Equalizer (0.7), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.6) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.5).
  • NBC moved Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.2) back to its season one timeslot, where it lost half the demo rating it was pulling on Tuesday. Ellen's Game of Games (0.3) was unchanged in a move to 8/7c and Good Girls had to beat its lead-in just to get back to a 0.3 at 10/9c.
  • ABC's The Rookie (0.4) returned from a month off leading out of a steady American Idol (0.8). Fox's Cherries Wild dropped to 0.1 with less afternoon lead-in help, while the animation (0.2/0.4/0.3/0.4/0.4) including a The Great North repeat looked pretty even.

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 3/25/21


FINALS UPDATE: Station 19 (0.8) and Superstore (0.6) adjusted up while Mom (R) (0.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC's Superstore ended its six-season run with a pair of 0.5's in the 8:00 hour, matching last week's finals (but up from last week's prelims).
  • The ABC dramas (0.7/0.9/0.5) all matched last week's prelims (Station 19 and Grey's Anatomy later adjusted up). Fox's Hell's Kitchen (0.8) stayed strong but Call Me Kat (0.5) and Last Man Standing (0.4) were both down a notch.

FINALS UPDATE: NCAA Basketball (1.1) and The Voice (R) (0.8) adjusted up while NCAA Basketball (1.4) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The Voice (0.8) narrowly outdueled American Idol (0.7) in their first head-to-head this season, while The Good Doctor (0.5) held off Debris (0.4) in the 10/9c hour. 
  • CBS' basketball coverage made a rare Monday appearance (1.5/1.2/1.0) to take the night. Fox's America's Most Wanted was up to a 0.4 prelim in week two, after adjusting up from a 0.3 prelim last week.

Monday, March 22, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 3/21/21


FINALS UPDATE: 60 Minutes (0.9), Cherries Wild (0.3) and Bless the Harts (0.3) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Despite a strong 7:00 half-hour of NCAA basketball overrun (2.0), CBS aired 60 Minutes (0.8) and drama repeats (0.5/0.4/0.4/0.4/0.3) to round out the night.
  • There was no post-Grammy rebound as ABC's American Idol (0.8) and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (0.4) along with NBC's Ellen's Game of Games (0.3) and Good Girls (0.3) all matched last week.
  • Fox's numbers could shift due to a minor overrun of its own, but its usual lineup (0.2/0.2/0.4/0.3/0.4/0.4) (with a Family Guy repeat at 9:30) mostly slid down from last week.

FINALS UPDATE: Call Your Mother (R) (0.3), The Con (0.3), Tough As Nails (0.5), Chicago Med (0.8), Chicago Fire (0.9), Chicago PD (0.9) and The Masked Singer (1.2) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Week two of The Masked Singer (1.1) was down two tenths (maybe one after finals) from last week, while lead-out Game of Talents managed to hold onto a 0.7 again.
  • Fox may have actually widened its nightly lead as NBC saw a significant drop at 8/7c from Chicago Med (0.7), a drop of at least a tenth from Chicago Fire (0.8), and an impressive hold at 10/9c for Chicago PD (0.8). ABC's comedies were in repeats and CBS got no interest in a Grammy salute special (0.2).

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 3/16/21


FINALS UPDATE: Black-ish (R) (0.4), NCIS (0.9), FBI (0.8) and Kenan (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • New lows abounded on NBC with Young Rock (0.6), Kenan (0.4), This Is Us (0.8) and New Amsterdam (0.4), and the dramas would still be at new lows even with an upward adjustment. The CW's The Flash and Superman and Lois are also eyeing their first ever 0.2's.
  • Fox had another low-rated reality debut with two episodes of Holmes Family Effect (0.3/0.2), a short order fill-in for this Tuesday and next.
  • Compared with that ugliness, a relatively steady night on CBS with NCIS (0.8), FBI (0.7) and FBI: Most Wanted (0.6) looked strong by comparison.

Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Monday 3/15/21


FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelor (1.5), The Bachelor (1.4) and America's Most Wanted (0.4) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • After ending the season on two-night events for the last three years, The Bachelor (1.4/1.4/1.3) went back to a one-night finale in 2021, and the rough year-to-year trends continued or even worsened (vs. a 2.17/2.47 for the two nights last year).
  • Against that finale, NBC held up with The Voice (1.0/1.1) and week three of Debris (0.4), while the CBS comedies (0.7/0.6) were down a little as the dramas (0.4/0.4) returned in the last two hours.
  • Fox was off the radar with a quiet return for longtime staple America's Most Wanted (0.3) in the 9/8c hour after a 9-1-1 repeat (0.4). The CW brought back usual summer import Bulletproof (0.1) to lead into Black Lightning (0.1).

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 3/14/21


FINALS UPDATE: America's Funniest Home Videos (R) (0.7), Grammy Awards (2.3, +0.4) and The Simpsons (0.5) adjusted up while 60 Minutes (0.9, -0.2) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The Grammy Awards (1.9/2.1/1.8) became just the latest of the big award shows to take a massive year-to-year drop, down by more than 50% from last year's 4.7 prelim (which adjusted up to a 5.4 final). The show should end up with a lower 18-49 rating than last Sunday's Harry/Meghan interview.
  • NBC's Good Girls dropped to 0.3 in week two, matching its lead-in from Ellen's Game of Games (0.3). ABC's American Idol (0.8) and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (0.4) along with the Fox originals (0.4/0.3/0.4/0.4/0.5/0.4) looked a lot like last week.

Friday, March 12, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 3/11/21


FINALS UPDATE: Grey's Anatomy (0.9) and Clarice (0.4) adjusted up while Last Man Standing (0.4) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • A presidential address in the 8:00 half-hour bumped the start of primetime on the East Coast and could cause larger adjustments in the finals. ABC had the return of Station 19 (0.8/0.9), Grey's Anatomy (0.9/0.7) and A Million Little Things (0.4), the latter two of which would be at new lows if current results hold.
  • CBS aired Young Sheldon (0.7), B Positive (0.6) and Mom (0.5) into a potential new low for week five of Clarice (0.3). NBC started Superstore (0.3) at 8:30, and Fox timeshifted its lineup of Hell's Kitchen (0.6/0.5), Call Me Kat (0.4) and Last Man Standing (0.5).
  • As the only entertainment option at the start of the night, the CW's Walker was preliminarily back up to 0.3 for the first time in three episodes.

Thursday, March 11, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 3/10/21


FINALS UPDATE: S.W.A.T. (0.4), Chicago Fire (1.0) and The Masked Singer (1.3) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Fox's The Masked Singer (1.2) returned in the 8/7c hour, topping the night but diminished considerably from the winter premiere a year ago (2.0) and even from the last fall premiere (1.6). Its new reality lead-out Game of Talents (0.7) did not look as strong as previous TMS lead-outs like LEGO Masters (premiered to a 1.6 out of a 2.0 in Feburary 2020) and I Can See Your Voice (1.2 out of a 1.6 in September 2020).
  • It was a tight race for the nightly lead against the return of NBC's One Chicago, with Chicago Med (1.0) beating its last episode three weeks ago and Chicago Fire (0.9) and Chicago PD (0.8) even to very narrowly down.
  • As usual against the NBC drama competition, it got ugly for CBS with SEAL Team (0.4) and S.W.A.T. (0.3), while the CW's Riverdale (0.1) and Nancy Drew (0.1) returned from a week off.

Wednesday, March 10, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 3/9/21


FINALS UPDATE: To Tell the Truth (0.6), Black-ish (R) (0.4) and The Voice (1.0) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The CW's Superman and Lois held onto 0.3 in week three, once again matching its The Flash lead-in (0.3) in the demo and building significantly in total viewers. Both shows were just barely down from last week's preliminary viewership.
  • Steadiness was also the trend elsewhere, including with NBC's The Voice (0.9) and New Amsterdam (0.6) which aired after a The Voice repeat (0.6) rather than comedies. The CBS dramas (0.8/0.7/0.5), Fox's The Resident (0.6) and ABC's To Tell the Truth (0.5) also looked about even.

Tuesday, March 9, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Monday 3/8/21


FINALS UPDATE: Bob Hearts Abishola (0.7) and 9-1-1 (1.1) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • It was a tough second week for NBC's Debris (0.4), dropping by two tenths and retaining less than half of its The Voice (1.0) lead-in.
  • After a virtual tie with The Voice last week, The Bachelor (1.2) pulled well ahead this time, and The Good Doctor (0.6) returned even in the 10/9c hour. The CBS comedies (0.8/0.6) and Fox dramas (1.0/0.9) were roughly even with their last episodes, while the CW's All American (0.3) and Black Lightning (0.2) were on the high end preliminarily.

FINALS UPDATE: America's Funniest Home Videos (0.7) and Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special (2.7) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The night belonged to CBS thanks to a massive-two hour Oprah Winfrey interview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (2.6), nearly doubling the 18-49 average for last week's Golden Globes and more than doubling it in total viewers.
  • The competition had a tough time, including NBC which had no interest in the timeslot premiere of Ellen's Game of Games (0.3). But the season premiere of Good Girls managed to inch up to 0.4 at 10/9c, its most frequent raw number last season.
  • American Idol (0.8) dropped at least a tenth and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (0.4) aired a special episode in the 10/9c hour. Fox probably held up the best (0.3/0.3/0.4/0.4/0.5/0.4), with a couple of its programs up from last week and the rest even.

FINALS UPDATE: All Rise (R) (0.3) and 9-1-1: Lone Star (0.9) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC launched its spring cycle of The Voice (1.1), just a bit below the fall premiere and down 25%ish from the year-ago 1.54 premiere. New drama Debris (0.6) followed in the 10/9c hour, which took a similar y2y decline vs. the year-ago Little Big Shots preview.
  • The dramas on Fox (1.0/0.8) and the CW (0.2/0.1) matched last Monday's prelims, and it was another down night for The Bachelor (1.1/1.0) against bigger NBC competition.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Preliminary ratings for the Golden Globe Awards (1.4/1.3/1.0) were down a staggering two-thirds or so from the year-ago event, which aired in early January 2020 to a 3.8 prelim (and adjusted up to a 4.7 final).
  • The Globes had little effect on competing America's Funniest Home Videos (0.8) and American Idol (1.0), though The Rookie (0.4) fell back to its usual fall level at 10/9c. CBS was also even to narrowly down with The Equalizer (0.7) and the NCIS spin-offs (0.5/0.5).
  • NASCAR overrun could cause changes but it was preliminarily a rotten night for the Fox animation, with The Simpsons (0.4), The Great North (0.3), Bob's Burgers (0.3) and Family Guy (0.4) all eyeing new lows.

FINALS UPDATE: FBI (R) (0.5), NCIS (R) (0.5), The Resident (R) (0.3), This Is Us (1.0), To Tell the Truth (0.6) and Young Rock (0.8) adjusted up while Superman and Lois Special (0.2) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The two-hour premiere of CW superhero effort Superman and Lois averaged a 0.3 in each hour. The actual program (from 8:00 to 9:30) may well have a 0.4 since the half-hours were 0.4/0.3/0.4, while the sneak peek special at 9:30 averaged a 0.3. It's another strong number by CW standards but it does not seem to have done better than the All American and Walker premieres in January.
  • Despite CBS/Fox repeat competition, it was a tough week two for the new NBC lineup as Young Rock (0.7) and Kenan (0.5) both preliminarily shed three tenths from last week's premieres, and This Is Us (0.9) will need finals help to avoid a new series low.
  • ABC also struggled with declines from To Tell the Truth (0.5) and possibly the Black-ish duo (0.5/0.4), while an extra To Tell the Truth (0.4) filled out at the night at 10/9c.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Week two of The Equalizer (0.7) dropped by two tenths from its timeslot premiere, matching its 60 Minutes lead-in (0.7) and remaining ahead of NCIS: Los Angeles (0.6) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.5).
  • Fox had the delayed premiere of game show Cherries Wild (0.2), which was hopeless alongside Bless the Harts (0.2) in the 7/6c hour. The regular lineup of The Simpsons (0.5), The Great North (0.4), Bob's Burgers (0.5) and Family Guy (0.5) perked up from there but were still on the low end.
  • ABC's American Idol (1.0) and The Rookie (0.5) each declined in their second week together, and NBC finished out The Widower (0.3/0.4).

Friday, February 19, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 2/18/21


FINALS UPDATE: Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (0.9) and The Hustler (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The CBS comedies (0.8/0.6/0.6/0.4) and week two of Clarice (0.4) mostly slid down from last week, when Clarice posted a very high 0.5 (0.54) in finals.
  • NBC began a mini-docuseries from the Dateline producers called The Widower (0.5), improving on recent regular Dateline eps in the slot, while Mr. Mayor (0.5) and Law and Order: SVU (0.7) matched their last originals.
  • The ABC game shows (0.8/0.6/0.4) along with the Fox (0.7/0.5/0.4) and CW (0.2/0.1) lineups looked pretty typical.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC got a solid start from its new comedy hour of Young Rock (0.9) and Kenan (0.8), boosting This Is Us (1.1) to its highest rating in 2021, and Nurses remained at 0.3.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 2/14/21


FINALS UPDATE: American Idol (1.2), 60 Minutes (0.8) and NASCAR (0.9, +0.2) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • A week after its post-Super Bowl airing, The Equalizer (0.9) got off to a good start in its regular Sunday 8/7c slot, building on 60 Minutes (0.7) and outrating all episodes of the NCIS spin-offs on the night this season. NCIS: Los Angeles (0.7) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.5) rounded out the night for CBS.
  • ABC had the return of American Idol (1.1), looking to be down 20%ish from last year's 1.47 premiere. It was also a boon to the surrounding programs, with America's Funniest Home Videos (0.8, tie) and The Rookie (0.6) both at season high levels.
  • Fox was on the map with the Daytona 500 in primetime (0.6/0.5/0.7/0.9) and NBC went low with a Grand Ole Opry special (0.3).

FINALS UPDATE: Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (0.8), The Hustler (0.5), Young Sheldon (0.9), B Positive (0.7) and Mr. Mayor (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS premiered new drama Clarice (0.5) in the 10/9c hour, where it was actually ahead of the year-ago series premiere of Tommy (0.44). It was also a relatively nice night for the 9/8c comedy hour, with Mom (0.7) hitting a new season high and The Unicorn up to 0.5 for the first time since November. The night began with a steady Young Sheldon (0.8) and B Positive (0.6).
  • The ABC game shows returned with Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (0.7), The Chase (0.6) and The Hustler (0.4) all eyeing potential new series lows in the prelims. The same goes for NBC's Mr. Mayor (0.4) and the CW's Walker (0.2) and Legacies (0.1).
  • Fox's trio of Hell's Kitchen (0.7), Call Me Kat (0.5) and Last Man Standing (0.4) were all even.

Thursday, February 11, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 2/10/21


FINALS UPDATE: For Life (0.3) and Chicago PD (0.9) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • CBS reality series Tough As Nails (0.5) returned for season two, with the same rating that was most common during its initial run in summer 2020.
  • On ABC, the 8/7c hour of The Goldbergs (0.6) and American Housewife (0.5) matched last week's finals (with Goldbergs up from last week's prelim 0.5). A repeat of The Conners (0.4) and an original Call Your Mother (0.3) led into the first preliminary 0.2 at 10/9c from For Life.
  • NBC's Chicago trio (0.9/1.0/0.8) fared similar, with Med down a tenth and Fire up a tenth vs. last week's prelims. And Fox's The Masked Dancer (0.6) and Name That Tune (0.5) looked a little better after preliminary 0.5/0.4 last week.

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 2/9/21


FINALS UPDATE: Black-ish (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • This Is Us (1.0) finally returned to originals and preliminarily matched its last rating from four weeks ago. It was no help to lead-in Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.4) and lead-out Nurses (0.3), which were both even with last week.
  • The CBS dramas (0.9/0.8/0.6) matched their last prelims from two weeks ago, and the Fox dramas (0.5/0.4) were steady with their prelims from last week. (Most of those shows went on to adjust up in finals.) On ABC, Black-ish (0.4) dropped to join its companion Mixed-ish at 0.4, but Big Sky admirably pulled off another 0.6 at 10/9c.

Tuesday, February 9, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Monday 2/8/21


FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelor (1.4), The Neighborhood (1.0), Ellen's Game of Games (0.6) and The Wall (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • On Super Monday, CBS' Bob Hearts Abishola (0.8) tied its season high from two weeks ago, while lead-in The Neighborhood (0.9) will need adjustment help to do the same. All Rise (0.5) and Bull (0.5) were also steady.
  • It was an up night for Fox dramas 9-1-1 (1.1) and 9-1-1: Lone Star (0.9), but a down one for ABC's The Bachelor (1.3) and the unscripted options on NBC (0.5/0.4).
  • The CW's All American (0.3) rebounded from last week's 0.2, and Black Lightning (0.2) returned in the 9/8c hour.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 2/7/21


FINALS UPDATE: The Super Bowl posted a 15-year low in total viewership with 91.629 million and an even worse historical performance in A18-49 (26.48), down 12% from last year. Lead-out The Equalizer (5.08) had a horrible showing in the demo compared to previous Super Bowl lead-outs but was more competitive in total viewers, skewing far older than the usual lead-out. Compared with last year's The Masked Singer, The Equalizer was off a whooping 38% in the demo but just 14% in total viewers.


WHAT MATTERS:

  • Numbers posted for CBS' Super Bowl Sunday. Lead-out The Equalizer started at 10:39 ET, almost exactly the same time as Fox's The Masked Singer a year-ago (10:40), so the prelim for the 10:30 half-hour should at least somewhat point toward the trendline. (Last year, Fox's 10:30 half-hour in the prelims averaged a 9.9, and Masked Singer ended up with an 8.14 in the finals.)

FINALS UPDATE: The Goldbergs (0.6), The Conners (0.6), Call Your Mother (0.4), Chicago Fire (1.0) and Name That Tune (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The ABC comedy lineup stayed low, with anchors The Goldbergs (0.5) and The Conners (0.5) both matching last week's prelims and needing adjustment help to avoid new lows. American Housewife managed to get back to a preliminary 0.5, but Call Your Mother fell to its first 0.3 and For Life (0.3) stayed there.
  • On Fox, Name That Tune (0.4) took an ugly drop after building on The Masked Dancer (0.5) last week.
  • NBC's winning trio roughly matched last week with Chicago Med (1.0) up a tick and Chicago PD (0.8) preliminarily down one. CBS' annual Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials special (0.6) took a major drop from last year's 1.0.

FINALS UPDATE: To Tell the Truth (0.6), Mixed-ish (0.5), FBI: Most Wanted (R) (0.4), The Resident (0.6) and Prodigal Son (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's revamped Tuesday couldn't hold onto its premiere ratings in the first two hours, with To Tell the Truth (0.5), Black-ish (0.5) and especially Mixed-ish (0.4) all down from last week's prelims. But Big Sky pulled off another 0.6 at 10/9c, looking all the more promising by comparison and actually winning the night outright in prelims.
  • Despite CBS in repeats (0.4/0.4/0.3), 8/7c dramas The Resident (0.5) and Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.4) were down a notch from last week. Airing after yet another This Is Us repeat (0.3), Nurses inched back up to 0.3, and Prodigal Son posted another 0.4.

Tuesday, February 2, 2021

Spotted Ratings, Monday 2/1/21


FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelor (1.5) and 9-1-1 (1.0) adjusted up.

  • ABC's The Bachelor (1.4) and the unscripted offerings on NBC (0.6/0.6/0.5) looked pretty steady, while CBS went into repeats.

FINALS UPDATE: The Chase (0.7), Mom (R) (0.4), Mr. Mayor (0.6) and Law and Order: SVU (R) (0.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • There was no week four rebound for the ABC game shows, as Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (0.8), The Chase (0.6) and The Hustler (0.5) were in line with last week's prelims (Chase actually down a notch).
  • Week two of Walker (0.3), like All American on Monday, dropped a tenth from its premiere.
  • As some shows went into repeats, most other big four originals were even including Fox's Hell's Kitchen (0.7), Call Me Kat (0.6) and Last Man Standing (0.4). The Unicorn fell to 0.3 airing after 90 minutes of repeats (0.5/0.4/0.3).

FINALS UPDATE: The Goldbergs (0.6), The Conners (0.6), The Price Is Right Special (0.8) and The Masked Dancer (0.6) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The broadcast upswing on Monday/Tuesday came to a crashing halt on Wednesday, with The Goldbergs (0.5), American Housewife (0.4) and The Conners (0.5) all plummeting to what would be new series lows, and Call Your Mother (0.4) and For Life (0.3) tying their lows.
  • Fox also took a hit with The Masked Dancer (0.5), though Name That Tune managed to hold onto 0.6 and actually build on its lead-in. NBC was on top with One Chicago (0.9/0.9/0.9), all down a tenth if they don't adjust up, while The Price Is Right (0.7) returned to lead into SEAL Team (0.5) and S.W.A.T. (0.4).

FINALS UPDATE: To Tell the Truth (0.7), NCIS (1.0), FBI: Most Wanted (0.7) and This Is Us (R) (0.3) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC united its Anthony Anderson-fronted shows as a winter run of To Tell the Truth (0.6) led into a Tuesday return for Black-ish (0.6) and the second season premiere of its spin-off Mixed-ish (0.6). Black-ish improved upon its late fall episodes after The Conners, and Mixed-ish also grew from when we last saw it in the spring. Big Sky (0.6) rounded out a consistent night at 10/9c, holding onto the same demo rating it was getting after The Bachelorette.
  • Two nights after its post-AFC Championship exposure, FBI (0.8) aired its first Tuesday episode of the new year, sandwiched by NCIS (0.9) and FBI: Most Wanted (0.6).

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The big four networks were even to slightly up from last week, including a new season high from CBS' The Neighborhood (0.9). The Bachelor (1.4) remained on top with The Good Doctor (0.7) growing at 10/9c, and Fox's duo of 9-1-1 (1.2) and 9-1-1: Lone Star (1.0) took no real drop from last week's premieres.
  • Week two of All American (0.3) inched down from last week's breakout opener, but remained ahead of most of its raw numbers from last season.

FINALS UPDATE: Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (0.9), B Positive (0.7), Law and Order: SVU (0.7) and Call Me Kat (0.6) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The CW improbably picked up its second 0.4 of the week with the premiere of new drama Walker on Thursday. This may well be the biggest CW series premiere in Plus in over three years, since Black Lightning got a 0.8 after The Flash in early 2018. It got there on the back of a much older-skewing audience than the typical CW fare; its 2.431 million total viewers were the most on the network in almost three years. It led into the return of Legacies (0.2) at 9/8c.
  • On ABC, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (0.8) took a hard crash against full competition in week three, and The Chase (0.7) and The Hustler (0.5) went down with it.
  • The CBS comedies returned with Young Sheldon (0.8), B Positive (0.6) and Mom (0.6) up a notch from their fall finales, while The Unicorn (0.4) stayed low at 9:30.
  • NBC (0.5/0.4/0.6/0.3) and Fox (0.7/0.5/0.4) were both even to narrowly down.

ABC used this to lead into originals of its usual 9:00 comedy hour of The Conners (0.6) and Call Your Mother (0.4).
  • Fox was down a tenth with its regular lineup of The Masked Dancer (0.6) and Name That Tune (0.6), and the CW was back to its regular Wednesday lineup of with Riverdale (0.2) and Nancy Drew (0.1).

  • Fox had week two of The Resident (0.5) and Prodigal Son (0.5), with the former taking a somewhat steep decline vs. last week's 0.65 premiere. With This Is Us in repeats due to COVID-related production delays, its surrounding programs Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.4) and Nurses (0.2) were both on the downswing.

FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelor (1.4), Bob Hearts Abishola (0.7) and Ellen's Game of Games (0.7) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Day two for the CW's return to regular programming went way better than day one, with an explosive (by CW standards) 0.4 for the return of third-year drama All American, up a tenth from last season's already way up premiere. This was also the first time it hit a 0.3 in A18-34 since that premiere.
  • Fox dramas 9-1-1 (1.2) and 9-1-1: Lone Star (0.9) also returned, with the mothership down 20%ish from last year's premiere but in line with its spring 2020 raw numbers, while Lone Star put up the same 0.9 from the last three weeks of its winter 2020 run.
  • ABC had a The Bachelor bounce-back (1.3), up at least a tick following last week's struggles against football, while The Good Doctor remained at 0.6. The CBS comedies (0.8/0.6) and Bull (0.5) along with everything on NBC (0.6/0.5/0.5) matched their last final ratings.

FINALS UPDATE: The Rookie (0.5), 60 Minutes (1.2) and NFL Playoffs (9.9, +1.8) adjusted up while The Great North (2.1, -0.5) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Fox had a huge NFL playoff game in primetime (8.1), leading into another preview of The Great North (2.6 for the 10:00 half-hour) and an original Family Guy (1.1 for the 10:30 half-hour).
  • ABC had a rough time against the bigger competition with Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (0.4) moving to 8/7c and Card Sharks (0.3) returning at 9/8c, while The Rookie (0.4) managed to build on its lead-in. CBS' NCIS spin-offs (0.6/0.5) held up a little better thanks to some indirect help from the late afternoon game on CBS, which led into 60 Minutes (1.1).
  • And the CW's Batwoman (0.1) quietly became the first of the network's regular scripted stable to return after sitting out in the fall due to production delays. If it doesn't adjust up, it would be just the second 0.1 ever for Batwoman (it got there against the Grammys around this time last year).

FINALS UPDATE: Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (1.2), The Chase (0.9), Young Sheldon (R) (0.6), Mom (R) (0.4) and Call Me Kat (0.6) adjusted up.

  • The most severe decliner was Fox's Call Me Kat, dropping to 0.5 after posting a 0.6 prelim/0.7 final a week ago. Its surrounding programs Hell's Kitchen (0.7) and Last Man Standing (0.5) both matched last week's prelims.
  • And on NBC, week two of Mr. Mayor (0.5) dropped a tenth vs. last week's 8:00 premiere, while Superstore (0.5) returned in the 8:30 half-hour to lead into Law and Order: SVU (0.6).

The night started with a steady The Goldbergs (0.7) and slightly down American Housewife (0.5).
  • NBC was on top with the returns of Chicago Med (1.0), Chicago Fire (1.0) and Chicago PD (0.9), with PD ticking up from its fall finale almost two months ago.

  • On NBC, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.4) and This Is Us (0.9) each dropped a tenth from their winter premieres, leaving TIU down by three tenths from what it was doing just in November and down roughly 40% from what it was doing at this time last year.
