CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  Freeform faced life after PRETTY LITTLE LIARS last night, with the midseason premiere of THE FOSTERS OK at 0.33 (down 0.07 from January’s season premiere, but up 0.07 from the April midseason finale), but THE BOLD TYPE then plunging to 0.16/0.14.  (Note:  the opening hour had previously aired after a PRETTY LITTLE LIARS episode.) That’s essentially the same rating as the 0.16 for the premiere of last summer’s already-canceled GUILT.  TLC’s OUTDAUGHTERED returned at 0.46, followed by the premiere of RATTLED at 0.34.   On History, FORGED IN FIRE was at 0.35, with the premiere of AMERICAN RIPPER at 0.29.  Tru’s ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING returned at 0.22, followed by the premiere of YOU CAN DO BETTER at 0.13.  CMT’s STILL THE KING returned at 0.05/0.04.

USA’s WWE SMACKDOWN was one of the few shows to air a new episode on the 4th of July, and it was up a tick from last week to 0.76. Unless otherwise noted, all other comparisons are to 2 weeks ago.  OWN’s THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS dropped 0.05 to 0.50, followed by an ESSENCE FEST special at 0.28. On Bravo, BELOW DECK ticked up to 0.45.  Spike’s INK MASTER was steady at 0.43, and the REDEMPTION after-show returned at 0.24.  On Discovery, DEADLIEST CATCH fell 0.06 to 0.42, and DEVIL’S CANYON ticked down to 0.20. The Trump Jr story continued to be great for MSNBC’s RACHEL MADDOW SHOW which dominated the demo at 0.40/2.9M, ahead of Fox News’s HANNITY with its Donald Jr interview at 0.32/2.9M, and CNN’s ANDERSON COOPER 360 at 0.25/1.1M. TNT’s ANIMAL KINGDOM held at 0.36.  TBS’s WRECKED lost 0.04 to 0.36. On Comedy Central, TOSH.0 dropped 0.05 to 0.34, and THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW was up 0.02 to 0.19.  HGTV’s GOOD BONES ticked up to 0.34.  Food Network did air July 4th episodes, and CHOPPED gained 0.08 to 0.28. On MTV, FEAR FACTOR was at 0.26, and lead-in THE CHALLENGE was at 0.25. A&E’s BORN THIS WAY rose 0.06 to 0.22.  On ID, I AM HOMICIDE remained at 0.22, and 6 DEGREES OF MURDER was down 0.01 to 0.16.  BET’s TALES slipped 0.02 to 0.19.  The 3rd chapter of HBO’s THE DEFIANT ONES dropped 0.04 to 0.17.  Syfy’s FACE OFF fell 0.06 to 0.15.

    Do you have Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero at 7 am on Disney XD?


  2. JC

    Curious as to how the Mayweather-McGregor Press Conference did on FS2?


  3. ...

    The Bold Type’s premiere was available online for weeks, so I’m curious what it does next week, particularly since word-of-mouth has been positive.


    • FlopWatch

      That was only for episode 1, this was a 2 hour premiere. So episode 2 was new.

      This is in line with most of Freeform’s shows so it’s not like it’s an unusual performance.


      • Destiny

        I’m sure everyone had their pretend not to be surprised face on when seeing another Freeform flop LOL.


        • FlopWatch

          It would’ve been more surprising with the opposite.


          • Destiny

            Freeform are so tragic, they’re devoid of any hits now. Cloak & Dagger may attract an audience at first, but Marvel shows have over saturated the market, so if they’re poor in quality I could see people jumping ship pretty quickly.

            They literally have nothing of value that will pull big numbers for the rest of the year.


          • FlopWatch

            They’re beyond pathetic, at this point, it’s only a matter of which flop they’ll keep or get rid of.


          • Destiny

            It’s been a month since Famous in Love finished airing and still nothing.


          • FlopWatch

            Freeform is in shambles, they’re stuck with flop after flop and PLL’s absence is clearly felt.


      • CMM

        I am surprised that, due to The Fosters’ rating, more people did not stick around for The Bold Type to at least check it out. Even with any online/On Demand viewership plus the preview episode they aired factored in. It’s almost as though these shows are thought to be bad before anyone actually watches to see if they are. Last night was a good time to give it a another chance for those who might have seen the first episode and for new viewers brought in by The Fosters to try it, but nope.

        I’ve not seen Bold Type, so can’t speak to how good or bad it is, or even what’s it’s about, to have an idea why so few watched it.


        • CMM

          I should also add the show seems to be for young women, so what was the female audience for this? Look at the female audience numbers for The Fosters. Freeform could have got good enough numbers for that audience to be happy. We only see the overall numbers in the list above.


          • Mitch Salem

            The Bold Type ratings were too low for its detailed demos to hit the chart, but in Freeform’s target demo of F12-34, the show lost more than half its lead-in from The Fosters, much as it did in the 18-49 demo, dropping in F12-34 from 0.70 to 0.34 and then 0.30. So there’s not much good spin to put on the results.

            However, it is true that Bold Type got some notably strong reviews, most enthusiastically from Vulture, and Freeform has been pushing those on social media and will be re-running the opening episodes repeatedly over the next week. It’s also possible that the good reviews alone will be enough to get the series renewed, even if the ratings stay low–Freeform, after all, is the network that renewed Stitchers and Beyond, which seemed to have no buzz at all. So it’s far too early to write Bold Type’s epitaph. Still, this is hardly the way Freeform wanted it to start.


          • Destiny

            Critical acclaim doesn’t always translate into ratings though Mitch. I think the second season of Mr. Robot is a great example of that. This is a show that critics adore, and a show that gained countless awards/nominations. Yet the ratings plunged from the first season.


          • FlopWatch

            Speaking of Mr. Robot, that extra long hiatus certainly isn’t going to help when it returns.


          • Destiny

            Mr. Robot was probably renewed on its awards alone. But it was the first season garnering all of the awards, not the second. I think it remains to be seen if the critical acclaim could save it again.

            I really can’t see this show being cheap to produce either as its filmed in NYC.


          • CMM

            Thanks Mitch!

            The thought crossed my mind the numbers for a female audience might be about half that of Fosters, but I’d bet Freeform would be happy to grab on to that 3.0 for something they can get a hold on,,,until it slips from their grasp.


        • FlopWatch

          The lead in doesn’t guarantee anything, they’ve failed to launch anything out of PLL.


        • Maybe a simple fix is replacing the other girls beside Katie Stevens with Rita Volk, and maybe Bailey De Young too from Faking It, see if numbers tick up from there.


          • FlopWatch

            Considering Faking It’s own numbers, probably not, there’s a reason MTV has been phasing out of scripted shows recently.


  4. Destiny

    Good night for Animal Kingdom & Wrecked. Two shows that should be following Claws before the Summer is done on the renewal front.


  5. Gabrielle

    Not sure why fosters gets no love for steadily holding onto their audience/ratings. It’s one of tv’s finest regardless of the crap network it’s on


    • TellMeNow

      Hallelujah! The Fosters is more important now than ever and those demo numbers are block butter for that network. They should let those creators launch every show on their network. I read a pilot they wrote for Freeform about some flapper girl in the 1920s and it feels “bold” and original and risky but Freeform takes no chances and they should – ABC FAMILY used to and that’s why Freeform will never be as successful as its predecessor.


    • FlopWatch

      It should be now that PLL ended and it’s clearly going to be the #1 show for the network with ease.


    • CMM

      If only it were not such a depressing, race and gender blender show that wants to throw everything bad that can happen at everyone in this one family for being so. It’s too often over-the-top ridiculous. More so when they purposely have the kids do stupid stuff to perpetuate it all.

      Then there are even little things like the disconnect of Jesus not having his biological mother and grandparents ever visit him during his brain injury.

      The most brilliant thing they did was cast Bailey Madison as Maia Mitchell’s half sister. Speaking of which, it’s hard to care for Mitchell’s character for the things she does, she’s never happy, and she might as well be an emancipated minor since she’s about to be 18 anyway. You realize the family would have been much better off without her or that she should have gone to her biological father, right?

      From what I hear, they want to move to more family oriented stories, which I hope they do and tone down the overly exaggerated aspects. There is a good show in there if they lighten up and pace themselves better.


  6. Hank

    How did Fuse new puppet show at 1030p do


  7. James

    Has there been a season 3 pickup for still the king?


  8. Vincent DeLeon

    Where’s Adventure Time? The episode “Ketchup” premiered at 6:45PM Central Time yesterday but it’s not listed here. Mighty Magiswords is listed so there is a Cartoon Network show listed.
