March 27, 2018



With one exception, a quite steady night.

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 2018 Mar 26.MON


ABC:  AMERICAN IDOL was steady at 1.6, and the season finale of THE GOOD DOCTOR also held at 1.6.

NBC:  THE VOICE was the night’s only real loser, down 0.3 to 2.0.  GOOD GIRLS remained at 1.0.

CBS:  KEVIN CAN WAIT dipped 0.1 to 0.9, but after that, MAN WITH A PLAN (0.9), SUPERIOR DONUTS (0.8), LIVING BIBLICALLY (0.7) and SCORPION (0.8) all held in place.

FOX:  LUCIFER (0.8) and THE RESIDENT (0.9) stayed as-is.

CW:  LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (0.4) and IZOMBIE (0.2) didn’t move.

ABC’s ultra-hyped reboot of ROSEANNE arrives tonight, and so does the lower-profile new sitcom SPLITTING UP TOGETHER.  On cable, FX’s BASKETS airs its season finale, and Comedy Central’s TOSH.0 and THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW return.

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