Demo Profile 2015 MON.20 Apr


NBC:  THE VOICE led the night at 2.5, but that was down 0.4 from last week, and put it just half a point above DANCING WITH THE STARS, a show it used to tower over.  THE NIGHT SHIFT was steady at 1.3.

CBS:  The season finale of SCORPION gained 0.2 to 2.1.  It was preceded by 2 BROKE GIRLS and MIKE & MOLLY (each up 0.1 to 1.9), and followed by NCIS: LA (down 0.2 to 1.4).

FOX:  GOTHAM was steady at 1.5, and THE FOLLOWING edged up 0.1 to 1.2.

ABC:  DANCING WITH THE STARS lost 0.2 to 2.0, and CASTLE’s 1.4 followed a rerun last week and was down 0.1 from the original episode in the prior week.

CW:  THE ORIGINALS rose 0.1 to 0.5, and JANE THE VIRGIN remained at 0.4

All the networks are new tonight except CBS, which will air 2 hours of reruns and then a new out-of-timeslot CSI: CYBER.  On cable, Comedy Central will feature the season premiere of INSIDE AMY SCHUMER, but the network didn’t even wait for a single rating before renewing the series for another season.  

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