UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 150 Wednesday Cable Originals & Network Finals: 8.9.2017

 

 

 

 

NETWORK FINALS:  As we noted last week, NFL exhibition season means plentiful local preemptions and thus adjustments.  The chief victim on Wednesday was ABC, which saw its STORY OF DIANA fall 0.3 to 0.7 in final numbers.  In addition, the sitcom reruns aired earlier that night were respectively down 0.2 (THE GOLDBERGS) and 0.3 (SPEECHLESS).  Elsewhere, almost everything was down 0.1: BIG BROTHER and SALVATION on CBS, AMERICA’S GOT TALENT and both episodes of THE CARMICHAEL SHOW on NBC, and the SUPERNATURAL rerun on CW.

    Whoa! I’ve never seen such a drastic difference in either direction compared to the preliminaries for ABC’s total viewers. The CW, yes, but not the other broadcast networks.

    Preliminaries:
    * The Goldbergs: 0.8 / 3.55M
    * Speechless: 0.8 / 3.24M

    Finals:
    * The Goldbergs: 0.6 / 2.74M – 0.2 (25%) / 0.81M 23%) difference
    * Speechless: 0.5 / 2.43M – 0.3 (38%) / 0.81M (25%) difference


  2. Bill Hodges

    Mr. Mercedes ratings, please?


    • Mitch Salem

      We can well understand why “Bill Hodges” would want to know that show’s ratings, but since it aired only on DirecTV’s Audience Network, as far as we know it isn’t covered by Nielsen.


  3. salacious crumb
