November 7, 2017



Version 2.0 of CBS’s new Monday didn’t accomplish much.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary 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 and comparisons follow the chart.

Fast Demo 2017 Nov 06.MON

CBS:  KEVIN CAN WAIT remained at 1.2.  A one-time rerun of THE BIG BANG THEORY (MAN WITH A PLAN returns to that slot next week) elevated 8:30PM to 1.1, and that boosted SUPERIOR DONUTS by 0.2 to 1.0, but 9JKL, switched to 9:30PM, stayed at last week’s 0.8, up just 0.1 from last week’s all-but-canceled ME, MYSELF & I.  SCORPION gained 0.1 to 0.8.

ABC:  MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL preempted the network in both Detroit and Milwaukee, so adjustments will follow this afternoon.  For now, DANCING WITH THE STARS is steady at 1.4, and a LIVING EVERY DAY:  LUKE BRYAN special was slightly over half THE GOOD DOCTOR’S rating at 1.0.

NBC:  THE VOICE edged up 0.1 to 2.0, and THE BRAVE was up 0.2 to 1.0 (although it probably began at 10:01PM, so may be adjusted downward).

FOX:  LUCIFER was up 0.1 to 1.0, and THE GIFTED stayed at 1.1.

CW:  SUPERGIRL stayed at 0.5, and VALOR was up 0.1 to 0.3.

Tonight features a pair of cable premieres:  THE LONG ROAD HOME on NatGeo, and DAMNATION on USA.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
