Two of the networks are due for afternoon adjustment due to MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL simulcasts.

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.



CBS:  KEVIN CAN WAIT (1.6) and the back-ordered MAN WITH A PLAN (1.3) were each down 0.1 from last week.  2 BROKE GIRLS fell 0.2 to 1.2, and THE ODD COUPLE was steady at 1.0.  SCORPION gained 0.1 to 1.2.

ABC:  DANCING WITH THE STARS rose 0.1 to 1.7, and the canceled CONVICTION climbed 0.2 to 0.8.

FOX:  GOTHAM held at 1.2, and LUCIFER was up 0.1 to 1.1.

NBC:  The football simulcast in Cincinnati may shift the current numbers, which are 2.3 for THE VOICE and 1.2 for TIMELESS.  Note, though, that even if THE VOICE keeps its preliminary number, that’s still down an ugly 0.7 from the parallel Monday last year.

CW:  NFL coverage in NY will probably change SUPERGIRL’s 0.8 and JANE THE VIRGIN’s 0.5.

ABC has a David Blaine magic special in the 10PM slot tonight.  It’s a busy evening on cable, where TNT has the official 2-hour series premiere of GOOD BEHAVIOR (the first hour “sneaked” on Sunday night), USA finally launches the delayed SHOOTER, and MTV follows the season premiere of TEEN WOLF with the debut of SWEET/VICIOUS.

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


CABLE RATINGS: Come back this afternoon for detailed demographic ratings for top cable programs from this day.
