Spotted Ratings, Sunday 2/16/20

  • The broadcast Sunday spring began a couple weeks earlier than usual this year, and on top as usual was ABC with a healthy two-hour return for American Idol (1.4/1.5), down about 15% from the year-ago 1.7 premiere. The Idol opener led into an encore of the For Life pilot (0.6), which was within striking distance of the first-run rating on Tuesday.
  • The scripted premieres showed a lot less promise. Fox opened new animated comedy Duncanville (0.5) at 8:30, dropping by two tenths from its The Simpsons (0.7) lead-in and also getting out-rated by the lead-out veterans Bob's Burgers (0.6) and Family Guy (0.6).
  • And NBC could not drum up interest in its female-skewing drama duo of Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.4, down two tenths from its January preview) and Good Girls (0.4). Good Girls was down three tenths from last year's spring premiere (0.7), when it had a much better lead-in from World of Dance (1.0).
  • On CBS, NCIS: New Orleans (0.5) made the move to Sunday at 10/9c, where it was within a tenth of its NCIS: Los Angeles (0.6) lead-in. The clear weak link in the CBS drama trio was God Friended Me, tying its series low with a 0.4 at 8/7c. The CW's Batwoman (0.2) and Supergirl (0.2) also returned.

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 2/12/20

FINALS UPDATE: No adjustments.

  • Week two of the Fox unscripted lineup saw a two-tenth decline for The Masked Singer (1.8) and a steep-ish 25% decline for newbie LEGO Masters (1.2).
  • Fox had another tough unscripted competitor as Survivor (1.3) returned for its two-hour 40th season premiere. The show took a roughly league-average decline vs. its spring 2019 premiere (1.6).  
  • ABC got upticks from Modern Family (0.9) and Single Parents (0.6) on the night of Modern's Paris episode, but The Goldbergs (0.8) inched down to lead off the night. NBC's Chicago trio (1.1/1.1/1.0) looked normal, as did the CW's Riverdale (0.2).

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 2/11/20

FINALS UPDATE: The Flash (0.4) adjusted up while Mixed-ish (0.5) adjusted down.

  • ABC showed a little more Tuesday spunk than usual with a live edition of The Conners (1.1), a one-tenth uptick for its other three comedies (0.7/0.6/0.6), and a respectable start at 10/9c for new legal drama For Life (0.7). For Life looked better vs. its lead-in but still started in the same area as fall dramas Emergence (0.8) and Stumptown (0.7).
  • It was a down night vs. two weeks ago for all three CBS dramas (1.0/0.8/0.6). NBC's Ellen's Game of Games (0.9) and New Amsterdam (0.6) also downticked, though This Is Us (1.4) held up at 9/8c.
  • The CW also had bad news, with The Flash (0.3) preliminarily eyeing a new series low. And Fox's 24 Hours to Hell and Back (0.6) was even after a repeat of The Resident (0.3).

Spotted Ratings, Monday 2/10/20

FINALS UPDATE: No adjustments.

  • After last week's Super Monday bounce, Fox's drama newbies 9-1-1: Lone Star (1.0) and Prodigal Son (0.7) fell back to normal.
  • But it was an up night for much of the rest of broadcast. The Bachelor (1.8) and The Good Doctor (0.9) were both on the upswing, as was most of the CBS lineup (0.9/0.7/0.7/0.7). At least in the prelims, the CW's All American is eyeing what would be its first 0.3 since the season premiere.
  • NBC's Manifest fell back to 0.6 and an outright third place at 10/9c, following another 1.0/1.1 hourly breakdown from America's Got Talent: The Champions.
