Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/8/19


FINALS UPDATE: NFL Overrun (7.1, +1.5), 60 Minutes (2.2, +0.6), God Friended Me (0.9), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.7), Sunday Night Football (5.3, +1.2) and Supergirl (0.7) adjusted up while Football Night in America p2 (0.9, -1.4) and Football Night in America p3 (2.8, -1.3) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover began with Supergirl (0.6) on Sunday, easily hitting a new season high for the show and down a tenth from the Sunday opener to last year's crossover (0.7). It also tied The Flash's premiere as the highest-rated episode on the CW this season to date. But not many viewers stuck around for the 9/8c aftershow (0.2).
  • ABC aired an America's Funniest Home Videos special (0.6) in the 8/7c hour, bumping Kids Say the Darndest Things (0.4) to 9/8c where it completely tanked to a new low. But The Rookie admirably pulled itself back up to 0.6 at 10/9c.
  • CBS primetime began at 7:45 on the East Coast, so the prelims starting at 8:00 for 60 Minutes (1.6), God Friended Me (0.8) and NCIS: Los Angeles (0.6) could see some upward adjustment in finals. (The series finale of Madam Secretary began at 10:45 ET.)
  • Fox's Miss Universe competition (0.9) was down a couple tenths year-to-year. And NBC was on the lower end with Sunday Night Football (4.3/4.3/3.8).

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 12/5/19


FINALS UPDATE: Thursday Night Football (5.0, +1.3) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Numbers to come. ABC and NBC dedicated their Thursday to holiday programming, including the ABC original movie Same Time, Next Christmas.

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 12/4/19


FINALS UPDATE: No adjustments.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Leading out of The Masked Singer (1.8), Fox's event comedy series The Moodys (0.7) opened with a performance that would be poor by most standards but managed to outperform what the network has been getting out of Almost Family lately. (Though it was not really any better than the Almost Family premiere, which had a 0.75 out of a 2.0 TMS.)
  • NBC special Christmas in Rockefeller Center (1.1) was down two tenths year-to-year, but provided another The Voice-esque lead-in for night three of Making It (0.5).
  • ABC had a soft return in the 8/7c hour, with The Goldbergs (0.8) and Schooled (0.6) returning to new lows, but Modern Family (0.9) and Single Parents (0.6) and Stumptown (0.5) were even. CBS' Survivor (1.2), SEAL Team (0.7) and S.W.A.T. (0.5) were back to normal after their odd Thanksgiving Eve showings and matched two weeks ago. The CW (0.2/0.2) was also even with two weeks ago.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 12/2/19


FINALS UPDATE: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1.2, -0.3), All Rise (R) (0.5, -0.2) and Bull (R) (0.4, -0.2) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's The Great Christmas Light Fight (0.7) was preliminarily two tenths behind last year's 0.9 premiere, while The Good Doctor (0.9) had a strong fall finale by tying last week's post-DWTS result.
  • After The Voice (1.1), NBC got little interest in the return of reality series Making It (0.5), last seen ranging from 1.1 to 0.7 in a post-America's Got Talent run in summer 2018. It'll air seven more hours in the next nine days, and on premiere night couldn't even beat failed previous occupant Bluff City Law.
  • A rare Monday stop for Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1.5) has it in a close race with Fox's 9-1-1 (1.4) for top program of the night, though Rudolph could come down due to football preemptions. A strong 9-1-1 did not boost the fall finale of Prodigal Son (0.7), and the CW had its usual 0.2's.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 12/1/19


FINALS UPDATE: NFL Overrun (5.8, +1.3), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.8), Madam Secretary (0.5) and Sunday Night Football (6.2, +0.7) adjusted up while Football Night in America p2 (1.9, -0.6) and Football Night in America p3 (3.1, -1.5) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • An NFL overrun helped boost 60 Minutes (2.3/1.6), and CBS improved the 8:30-9:30 period even compared to other NFL Sundays with a second hour of 60 Minutes (1.1/0.9) instead of God Friended Me. But it did not have a noticeable effect on NCIS: Los Angeles (0.8/0.7) and Madam Secretary (0.4). This lineup started just a couple minutes late on the East Coast so downward adjustments shouldn't be too severe.
  • ABC and Fox both mixed a holiday special in with some of their usual originals. After ABC's Santa Claus is Comin' to Town (0.7) came Shark Tank (0.6) and The Rookie (0.5), which matched two weeks ago. Fox was on the low end with The Simpsons (0.7) and Bob's Burgers (0.6), which sandwiched Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas (0.5) at 8:30.
  • The CW (0.3/0.2) was even after a week off and Sunday Night Football (5.5/5.6/5.5) picked up at least a half point from last week.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Numbers to come.
