    Better for Big Sky. If the show holds around 0.6-0.7 it should be a sure thing lock for renewal. FBI also having a great premiere week and could be a ready made replacement for NCIS at 8pm in the future.


  2. 69 Road Runner

    Big Sky adjusted up sky high! 🙂

    Pretty good showing for FBI to match the NCIS demo, and even NeXt got a bump in finals.

    Looking at cable ratings, and seeing what is popular on cable, makes me happy with decision to cancel cable few years ago.


  4. Claire

    Hi…do these numbers stay the same once you’ve published them, or do they get adjusted ever? Could swear some numbers I looked up last week are now different this week. TY

    Honestly, since cable news networks care more about the 25–54 and 50+, in that aspect, Tucker Carlson Tonight clearly won the nigh and always dominates there. I’m not sure if they also look at total viewers, but Fox News clearly dominates there in general.

    If we’re going by total viewers for Tuesday primetime:
    8 PM: Tucker Carlson Tonight -> All In with Chris Hayes -> Anderson Cooper 360
    9 PM: Hannity -> The Rachel Maddow Show -> Cuomo Prime Time
    10 PM: The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell -> The Ingraham Angle -> CNN Tonight with Don Lemon

    The Ingraham Angle usually leads the 10 PM hour, but in terms of averages for Tuesday:
    * Fox News: 3.58 million
    * MSNBC: 2.83 million
    * CNN: 2.39 million


    • Joe

      1. Cable news is worthless, a waste of time, and is unhealthy for the individuals watching and the Country as a whole.

      2. I might catch World News Tonight on ABC before Jeopardy.

      3. Bragging about the single legit Conservative Channel is little, small, tiny, petite energy.


  6. Where is Newsmax? Viewership levels are well above some of the rated cable shows.
