UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 150 Friday Cable Originals & Network Finals: 4.13.2018

 

 

 

 

NETWORK FINALS:  As we noted on Saturday morning, since all the networks were disrupted by the 9PM presidential address, we’ll look at the Friday ratings more closely today now that we have adjusted finals.

ABC:  ONCE UPON A TIME (0.4), AGENTS OF SHIELD (0.5) and 20/20 (0.4) were all down 0.1 from last week.

CBS:  MACGYVER (0.8), HAWAII 5-0 (0.9) and BLUE BLOODS (0.8) were all steady.

NBC:  TAKEN held at 0.4, and DATELINE was down 0.1 to 0.6.

FOX:  MASTERCHEF JR dropped 0.1 to 0.7.

CW:  After 0.2 for a PENN & TELLER rerun, JANE THE VIRGIN stayed at 0.2.

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  It was a huge night for cable news, with 7 of the night’s Top 10 shows, and because the big story was the (relatively) nonnpartisan bombing of Syria, it was led by CNN TONIGHT at 0.65/0.85/2.5M, slightly ahead in the 18-49 demo of Fox News’s THE INGRAHAM ANGLE at 0.54/0.97/4.7M, with MSNBC’s RACHEL MADDOW SHOW behind at 0.36/0.56/3.3M.  A&E’s LIVE PD was steady at 0.60.  On Discovery, GOLD RUSH ticked down to 0.42, and BERING SEA GOLD was up 0.02 to 0.36.  Food Network’s DINERS, DRIVE-INS & DIVES rose 0.05 to 0.34.  On HBO, REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER fell 0.09 to 0.29, and WYATT CENAC’S PROBLEM AREAS premiered at 0.08.  NBC Sports Net’s NHL PLAYOFFS games were at 0.28/0.26.  On HGTV, HOUSE HUNTERS INTL remained at 0.27, and HOUSE HUNTERS was down 0.06 to 0.26.  Nickelodeon’s SPONGEBOB stayed at 0.26, LOUD HOUSE dropped 0.04 to 0.25, and ALVIN & THE CHIPMUNKS was up 0.02 to 0.25.  On We, MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP ticked down to 0.19, and BRIDEZILLAS was steady at 0.12.  ID’s EVIL STEPMOTHERS was at 0.18.  Paramount’s BELLATOR LIVE fell 0.05 to 0.09, with a 0.07 simulcast on CMT.  Cinemax’s RELLIK premiered way off the chart at 0.01/58K.

    What the hell?

    Stuck in the Middle:
    * 4/6: 1.22M
    * 4/13: 0.88M

    Bizaardvark:
    * 4/6: 1.14M
    * 4/13: 0.97M

    Also, Bizaardvark beat Stuck in the Middle last week. Wow!


    • Destiny

      Maybe some of those viewers had their TVs on CNN or Fox News? They seem to be up because of the Syria stuff.


  2. Destiny

    Good night if you’re a fan of the various news outlets out there. Spongebob & Loud House did well for Nickelodeon.


    • Amaury

      I dunno. They did “okay.” They used to have 0.30+ for the 18–49, 0.40+ for the F 12–34, and 1.60M+ for the total viewers.


  3. Matt

    Anybody know why Showbuzz has a (G) listed next to OUAT?


  4. Aria

    What does the (G) infront of OUAT mean?


    • Mitch Salem

      The G stands for “Gapped,” and it refers to the fact that since Once Upon A Time ran 61 minutes and was interrupted at exactly 9PM, the final minute had to air after the speech.


      • Shan

        Funny thing is that ABC News didn’t need to break into the show until the credits. Guess they are trying to look like they were first to cover the Trump BS.


  5. Suma Kancherla

    Do you have the ratings for Sunny Day aired at 12PM also simulcated on NickJr network?


  6. ...

    If this is going to be Cinemax’s strategy going forward, they really need to get out of the original scripted space.

    They don’t produce Rellik or Strike Back, so they don’t profit from their existence. Neither gets award/critic buzz or overindexes in L+3/L+7. I don’t see what the draw is in airing shows nobody watches that have zero ancillary positives for you, even if they’re cost-effective.

    Networks that half-step re: their scripted presence are never going to make in-roads in this TV environment. See also: WGN America


    • FlopWatch

      I’m not sure they even have one, they should’ve been treated like WGN American or any of those lesser networks that were affected by the Viacom mess.


  7. Gregg Hummer

    What the?? Laura and Hannity over 4m, now we know where viewers go when a breaking story hits.


  8. Greyroom85

    Forgive my ignorance since I’ve only been browsing this site for a couple of weeks, but I’ve notice that the comment/message board for the week of March 30th has disappeared. Can anyone explain what’s going on?


    • Amaury

      Not sure on the reasons why, but it’s normal. I don’t know the exact length, but after a while the comments do disappear. You can find them again via archives, though.


    • Destiny

      That’s normal, it doesn’t make sense to archive comments of discussions long since over. Who reads them?
