UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 150 Monday Cable Originals & Network Finals: 9.21.2020

 

 

 

 

NETWORK FINALS:  The ABC portion of MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL adjusted up to 2.0.  In addition, FILTHY RICH and the reruns of THE NEIGHBORHOOD and YOUNG SHELDON gained 0.1 in final numbers.  Some additional detail on the premieres:  LA’S FINEST was consistent throughout its hour, except for an odd 8:30-8:45PM dip, which kept it from hitting 0.6 in finals; FILTHY RICH barely rounded up to 0.5, with quarter-hours of 0.45-0.48; and MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES almost sagged to 0.2, saved by 0.29 in its first quarter-hour that was likely due to its LOVE ISLAND lead-in.

    Do you have Player Select at 8 PM on Disney XD? Thanks.


  2. Do you have ALVINNN!!! at 3pm on Nick? I’ve never seen new episodes not on the list.

    I know it was previously on Spectrum Originals but I’m shocked a show with such star power premiered at just 0.5

    I’m hoping Filthy Rich stays relatively ok I love the cast!

    My guess was LA’s Finest 1.0 and Filthy Rich 0.7


  4. Marius

    That’s unfortunate for MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES and US viewers especially, it was one of the greatest seasons of television to come out this year!
