UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 150 Sunday Cable Originals & Network Finals: 2.7.2021

 

 

 

 

NETWORK FINALS:  Nielsen never posted preliminary ratings for Sunday and went straight to finals.  Of course, the only network that mattered was CBS, where the SUPER BOWL’s 26.48 in the 18-49 demo was down approximately 2.52 from the 2020 game, although some of that may have been made up via streaming viewers.  In addition, the post-game premiere of THE EQUALIZER was at 5.08, down about 3.02 from last year’s post-game THE MASKED SINGER.  All other networks aired reruns, none of them over 0.25.

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  As usual, there weren’t a lot of networks that wanted to do battle with the Super Bowl.  Showtime aired a new YOUR HONOR, down 0.03 to 0.07, and THE CIRCUS fell 0.04 to 0.03.  BBCAmerica’s THE WATCH ticked down to 0.03.  HBO’s THE LADY AND THE DALE was also down a tick to 0.02.  Starz’s IN THE LONG RUN ended its season up a tick to 0.01/17K.

The Super Bowl may have been down this year, but Animal Planet’s PUPPY BOWL was up 0.08 from 2020 to 0.55.  NBC Sports Net’s PREMIER LEAGUE morning matches were at 0.34/0.16.  In the afternoon, Food Network’s DELICIOUS MISS BROWN slipped 0.02 to 0.20.  Golf Channel’s PGA TOUR coverage was at 0.18.  Fox Desportes’ FIFA match was at 0.17.  Hallmark’s KITTEN BOWL lost 0.03 from 2020’s edition to 0.09.

  1. Douglas from Brazil

    Where I can find how in millions represent 1.0 18-49 rating?


  2. augus

    Do you have ‘In The Long Run (Starz at 9PM)’ season three finale ratings, please?


  3. 69 Road Runner

    Only a 26 rating for SB LV? I guess they’ll still renew it for next year. 🙂


  4. 69 Road Runner

    ABC didn’t do too bad with its counterprogramming. Were Batwoman and Charmed repeats?


  5. Rilm

    Why would The CW have originals on Super Bowl Sunday!?!?!


  6. Destiny

    The Equalizer is going to crash with its next episode, probably to a 0.6-0.7. CBS just doesn’t do young skewing dramas.


  7. earl

    Made for you, with love (UPtv original movie at 7pm) ratings, please?


  8. Douuug

    Ratings for devil May care on syfy at 12am?
