Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 9/22/21

FINALS UPDATE: The Goldbergs (0.7), The Wonder Years (0.7), Survivor (1.1), Chicago Med (0.8), Chicago Fire (0.9), Chicago PD (0.9) and The Masked Singer (1.1) adjusted up.

  • ABC had a passable start in the first half of its Wednesday comedy night, with The Goldbergs (0.70) looking steady-ish in Plus and the new reboot of The Wonder Years (0.67) dropping just a touch in the 8:30 half-hour. At 9/8c, The Conners (0.65) aired a live episode, and season two of Home Economics (0.41) had a weak start in its new 9:30 timeslot. A Million Little Things (0.29) rounded out the night poorly, at almost an entire tenth below its June finale.
  • On the unscripted side, Survivor returned to CBS with a two-hour premiere (1.06) after fully sitting out the 2020-21 season. This was down just 16% from its fall premiere two years ago, and thus a considerable upgrade in Plus (probably marking the biggest Survivor premiere in that metric since the mid-aughts). Big Brother (0.61) suffered considerably in the 10/9c hour.
  • Survivor came just shy of topping the night against Fox's The Masked Singer (1.11), which took a big dip vs. the 1.57 fall 2020 premiere. (Though it was still down a bit less y2y than the last spring premiere). TMS launched newbie singing competition Alter Ego (0.65). Ego did not look as promising as past post-TMS premieres like I Can See Your Voice and LEGO Masters, but perhaps a hair better than the spring 2021 occupant Game of Talents (which had a 0.73 out of a 1.31).
  • And Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD began their fourth season as a trio on NBC Wednesday. Med (0.78) had easily the worst year-to-year trend of the three, in part because it had a somewhat flukishly high premiere last year, while Fire (0.86) and PD (0.87) looked healthy as ever.

The 2021-22 Daily Year-to-Date Rankings

This is a sortable list of series and ratings averages for the 2021-22 season, including every series that has a page in the SpotVault. For the first time, it is also a filterable list, meaning you can boil the table down to just one network, one category of programming or only new shows. (The striped formatting looks kinda ugly when filtered, but hopefully that is worth the added functionality.)
