The MLK holiday will cause delays for daily nationals ratings (cable and broadcast finals) for a few days.  This is how the ratings should roll out this week.  We will update this schedule if anything changes.  (All times Pacific.)

  • Friday Jan 15 nationals rescheduled to Tuesday Jan 19 at 1 pm (normally Monday afternoon)
  • Saturday Jan 16 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday Jan 20 at 6 am (normally Tuesday morning)
  • Sunday Jan 17 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday Jan 20 at 6 am (normally Tuesday morning)
  • Monday Jan 18 nationals rescheduled to Wednesday Jan 20 at 1 pm (normally Tuesday afternoon)

  • Wednesday Jan 20 nationals scheduled for Thursday Jan 21 at 1 pm*
  • Thursday Jan 21 nationals scheduled for Friday Jan 22 at 1 pm*

As usual, the “fast affiliate nationals” will continue to be released each morning at 8 am for the previous night’s preliminary prime time ratings on the broadcast networks.
