November 4, 2014



The new CBS Monday continues to find its level.

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.

Demo Profile 2014 MON Nov 3

CBS:  The entire line-up was down, as the night continues to cope without the jump-start of THE BIG BANG THEORY at 8PM.  2 BROKE GIRLS fell 0.2 to 2.2, THE MILLERS dropped 0.1 to another new series low 1.6, SCORPION was down 0.1 to 2.2, and NCIS: LA slipped 0.1 to a new series low 1.5.

NBC:  The network’s Monday numbers tend to shift a bit with afternoon adjustments, but as of now, THE VOICE is down 0.3 to 3.4, and THE BLACKLIST is down 0.1 to 2.4.

FOX:  GOTHAM had a good night, up 0.2 to 2.4.  Nevertheless, SLEEPY HOLLOW was down 0.1 to 1.5.

ABC:  There was an ESPN simulcast in Indianapolis, which may change things later in the day, but at the moment DANCING WITH THE STARS is up 0.2 to 2.1, and the COUNTDOWN TO THE CMAs special is at 1.3.

CW:  MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL aired in New York, which could bring the current numbers down.  Right now, THE ORIGINALS is steady at 0.6, and JANE THE VIRGIN is up a perhaps suspicious 0.2 to 0.6.

Election Night coverage is playing havoc with tonight’s schedule.  All the networks are preempting their usual 10PM shows, CBS and CW have reruns at 8-10PM, and ABC is preempting AGENTS OF SHIELD for a Marvel-themed special.


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