UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 150 Sunday Cable Originals & Network Finals: 12.30.2018

 

 

 

 

NETWORK FINALS:  THE ORVILLE gained 0.2 after football adjustment, putting it at 1.5, down 1.2 from the finals for its Season 1 post-NFL premiere.  Football adjustments also raised 60 MINUTES by 0.2 on CBS, where the 9:18PM rerun of THE NEIGHBORHOOD dropped 0.1, and the 10:48PM SWAT rerun was at 0.4.  SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL adjusted to 4.5, down 0.9 from the final number for last week’s game.

 

 

 

 

Broadcast Official Nationals Program Ratings Chart  

NOTE:  At this time, we don’t have any Sunday cable ratings lower than the Top 150 on the charts below.

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  Bravo’s DIRTY JOHN, once again enjoying a REAL HOUSEWIVES lead-in (see below), jumped a tenth to 0.39.  TBS concluded its ANGIE TRIBECA marathon at 0.14/0.08/0.08/0.08/0.06.  On Starz, OUTLANDER gained 0.02 to 0.14 (we don’t have COUNTERPART ratings at this time, which were presumably at or below the 0.02 of #150).  On Showtime, the finale of ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA rose 0.03 to 0.14, and RAY DONOVAN ticked down to 0.13.  A “preview” of the pilot for Syfy’s new DEADLY CLASS was at 0.11.  

TLC let unscripted, with 90 DAY FIANCE rebounding by two-tenths to 0.78, and RETURN TO AMISH was steady at 0.22.  On Bravo, REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA climbed 0.05 to 0.67, and REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY returned at 0.47.  ID aired THE LAKE ERIE MURDERS in several parts at 0.32/0.31/0.27.  HGTV’s line-up was topped by BEACHFRONT BARGAIN HUNT at 0.30/0.30/0.28/0.28, and HAWAII LIFE at 0.30/0.29, the latter compared to last week’s 0.22/0.20.  On Discovery, ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER gained 0.03 to 0.25, and THE LAST ALASKANS was down 0.02 to 0.20.
