SHOWBUZZDAILY FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 9.25.2020

 

Another low Friday.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary live+same day key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis follows the chart.

ABC:  After a rerun AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS at 0.4, 20/20 was steady at 0.5.

CBS:  GREATEST #ATHOME VIDEOS returned at 0.3, and LOVE ISLAND gained 0.1 to 0.4.  The night ended with a BLUE BLOODS rerun at 0.3.

NBC:  The night’s STANLEY CUP FINALS had a preliminary 0.5 rating.

FOX:  WWE SMACKDOWN rose 0.1 to 0.6.

CW:  MASTERS OF ILLUSION and a rerun, as well as WORLD’S FUNNIEST ANIMALS and a rerun, all held at 0.1.

Sports will occupy most networks tonight.  On Sunday, it’s season premiere night for FOX’s animated line-up, and on cable, Showtime launches THE COMEY RULE, and FX has almost 3 hours of FARGO’s Season 4 premiere.

Note: The fast affiliate-based ratings below measure what aired on network affiliates in 210 U.S. markets from 8-11 pm Eastern & Pacific or 7-10 pm Central & Mountain. The numbers are some combination of the network schedule and any pre-emptions (such as local news or weather coverage). Accurate program ratings will be available Monday afternoon with the broadcast finals.

CABLE RATINGS: Come back Monday afternoon for detailed demographic ratings for top Friday cable programs and broadcast finals.
