Spotted Ratings, Sunday 10/14/18

  • The CW made its return to regular Sunday night programming with veteran Supergirl (0.5) leading into the series premiere of the Charmed reboot (0.5), back on the night where the original series aired the second half of its run on the WB. Charmed doesn't look like a game-changer for the network's ratings landscape, but if the goal of the game to get renewed, a CBS-produced series starting at 0.5 should have a good chance.
  • ABC finished out its all-unscripted Sunday lineup with a terrible start for The Alec Baldwin Show (0.4) at 10/9c, unable to even match last year's 0.5 start in the slot for Ten Days in the Valley. The rest of the night held up OK for ABC; Shark Tank (0.7) inched up in a return to the 9/8c hour, Dancing with the Stars: Juniors (0.7) matched last week's premiere, and America's Funniest Home Videos (0.9) got a nice bounce in the 7/6c hour (probably benefiting from an early end to the CBS NFL coverage).
  • Speaking of CBS, with that early end to the NFL 60 Minutes (2.1/1.6) was down from two weeks ago despite a Donald Trump interview. God Friended Me (1.1) was up from last week at 8/7c and down two tenths from its NFL night premiere two weeks ago, continuing to stay close to the Wisdom of the Crowd raw numbers track. NCIS: Los Angeles (0.9) also edged up.
  • It was a brutal night on Fox; The Simpsons (1.0), Bob's Burgers (0.9) and Family Guy (0.8) all looked way worse than either of the first two weeks, while Rel took the I Feel Bad route and fell all the way to a horrific 0.5 at 9:30. That came against what looks like a huge game for the NFL on NBC; Chiefs/Patriots prelims are up about 10% from last week and about 20% from the year-ago evening.

Spotted Ratings, Friday 10/12/18

FINALS UPDATE: Speechless (0.4) adjusted down.

  • It was a very encouraging third week for the new dominant show on Friday, Fox's Last Man Standing (1.4), which grew by a tenth following last week's big drop. But the gap widened with its newbie lead-out The Cool Kids (1.0), as that lost a tenth. Hell's Kitchen remained at 0.8.
  • NBC brought back veteran drama Blindspot (0.5) in the 8/7c hour, where it was two tenths below last season's premiere and in line with its late spring results from last season. Expanding to two hours for a couple weeks, Dateline (0.7/0.8) fared a little better.
  • ABC's disappointing new TGIF didn't get any better in week two, with Fresh Off the Boat dropping to join Speechless at 0.5, while Child Support stayed at 0.4. A Melania Trump interview on 20/20 (0.5) brought that show up a touch. On CBS, MacGyver rose to match fellow dramas Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods at 0.8.
  • And Surrender Friday was back on the CW with sophomore Dynasty getting back to a 0.2 at 8/7c, but the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend opened with the show's first-ever 0.1.

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 10/11/18

FINALS UPDATE: The Big Bang Theory (2.3) and Thursday Night Football (4.7, +1.3) adjusted up while Mom (1.3) and I Feel Bad (0.5) adjusted down.

  • A crossover event gave a big jolt to Grey's Anatomy (1.5) spin-off and lead-out Station 19 (1.3), which posted a new series high in week two of season two. How to Get Away with Murder made it three weeks in a row at 0.8.
  • It was another downward night for NBC's Thursday lineup, with Will and Grace (0.8) dipping two tenths to a new low and joining Superstore and The Good Place (each down a tenth) at 0.8. I Feel Bad got way uglier with a downward adjustment to 0.5, while Law and Order: SVU pulled itself back up to 0.9 at 10/9c.
  • Meanwhile, CBS had a steady to up night, as The Big Bang Theory (2.3) and S.W.A.T. (0.8) were both up from last week. (And S.W.A.T. actually had a very high 0.8 in the prelims.)
