  • The spring collapse of Big Sky (0.3) kept on rolling, with the show dropping once again following a very high 0.4 a week ago. At least in the rounded numbers, it didn't grow from Mixed-ish (0.3) this time, while Pooch Perfect (0.4) and Black-ish (0.3) tied their lows as well.
  • ABC was far from the only network posting ugly results, as several other shows hit new prelim lows including CBS' NCIS (0.6) and NBC's Young Rock (0.4) and New Amsterdam (0.3). CBS' FBI (0.6) was also down to tie its low, though FBI: Most Wanted (0.6) held up fine at 10/9c.
  • Fox was on the low end (but not new lows at least in the prelims) with The Resident (0.5) and Prodigal Son (0.3), and Supergirl actually upticked to a prelim 0.2 for the first time this season.

  • Fox's 9-1-1 (0.9) and 9-1-1: Lone Star (0.7) came down from last week's returns but were still enough to take the night against a declining The Voice (0.7/0.8) on NBC.
  • CBS' The Neighborhood was back down to a preliminary 0.6, Bob Hearts Abishola (0.5) and All Rise (0.4) matched last week's prelims and Bull (0.5) was up a notch. ABC's two-hour Sesame Street special (0.5/0.4) was below last week's American Idol, but The Good Doctor managed to hang onto 0.5 at 10/9c.

  • The other networks were a mix of even to slightly down, with ABC's Grey's Anatomy (0.8) and Rebel (0.4) each inching down from last week's prelims and Law and Order: SVU (0.7) declining back to around its pre-crossover highs. The CW aired documentary 2040 (0.1).

  • NBC's Chicago Med (0.9), Chicago Fire (0.8) and Chicago PD (0.8) were all up a notch from their last prelims two weeks ago, but still finished second behind a double-dose of The Masked Singer (1.1/1.2) on Fox.
  • ABC mostly matched last week's prelims, but a notable exception was The Conners which tanked to a 0.4 at 9/8c. CBS had The Price Is Right (0.5) in the 8/7c hour, while the CW's Kung Fu managed a third straight 0.2 (though was down noticeably in total viewers from the first two weeks).

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 4/20/21

FINALS UPDATE: Kenan (0.4) and New Amsterdam (0.5) adjusted up.

  • Big Sky's spring slump continued in its return to the 10/9c hour (0.4), though it did edge its Mixed-ish (0.3) lead-in. Earlier in the night, Pooch Perfect (0.4) was flat and Black-ish (0.4) rebounded slightly from its low two weeks ago.
  • With This Is Us back in repeats, it was a down night for comedies Young Rock (0.5) and Kenan (0.3), with the latter hitting a new prelim low.
  • Fox was even with The Resident (0.5) and Prodigal Son (0.4). CBS opted for repeats (0.5/0.5) and Chauvin trial coverage (0.3) at the last minute, while Supergirl (0.1) aired after a repeat of The Flash (0.1).

Spotted Ratings, Monday 4/19/21

FINALS UPDATE: Bob Hearts Abishola (0.6), 9-1-1 (1.1) and 9-1-1: Lone Star (0.9) adjusted up.

  • Fox's 9-1-1 (1.0) and 9-1-1: Lone Star (0.8) returned from over a month off and looked solid as usual, likely to end up close to the 1.07/0.89 from their last episodes in March.
  • After American Idol topped The Voice a week ago, this week it was The Voice (0.8/0.9) surging back well ahead of Idol (0.6/0.5), though The Good Doctor (0.5) still topped Debris (0.4) in the 10/9c hour. 
  • CBS' The Neighborhood (0.7) bounced back after last week's decline, while Bob Hearts Abishola (0.5) and the dramas (0.4/0.4) were even. The CW (0.2/0.1) also matched last week.

FINALS UPDATE: American Idol (0.8), The Rookie (0.5), Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.3) and Family Guy (0.5) adjusted up.

  • The Academy of Country Music Awards (0.8) became one of the first events to air a second time since the start of the pandemic, just seven months after a delayed edition in September 2020. It was down some more from the 1.0 prelim/1.1 final for that show.
  • Elsewhere, ABC's American Idol (0.6/0.7) was on the downswing, thanks in part to the 7/6c hour tanking with a couple Home Economics repeats (0.3/0.2). NBC's Good Girls actually rose to 0.4 in the 10/9c hour, tying ABC's The Rookie at least in the rounded prelims, while lead-in Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist fell back to 0.2. The Fox animation (0.3/0.4/0.3/0.4/0.4) was even to slightly down.

  • The revamped ABC Wednesday moved downward in its second week. While The Goldbergs (0.6) and The Conners (0.6) held on OK, Home Economics was down to a prelim 0.4 (after adjusting up from 0.5 to 0.6 in its premiere). And A Million Little Things fell to a preliminary 0.3 at 10/9c, leading out of the return of Call Your Mother (0.3) at 9:30.
  • Week two of Kung Fu (0.2) appears to have held up well, exactly matching its preliminary total viewership of 1.373 million from last week. Fox won handily against NBC and mostly CBS repeats with steady The Masked Singer (1.1) and Game of Talents (0.6).

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

  • 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).

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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).

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

  • 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.

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.

  • 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).

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
