The Sked: Monday Ratings 9.12.2016

NOTE: ABC’s numbers below are grossly overstated by local pre-emptions on ABC stations in FOUR major markets for ESPN NFL Monday Night Football: in Washington, DC (WJLA) and Pittsburgh (WTAE) for the 7 pm ET first game and in Los Angeles (KABC) and San Francisco-San Jose-Oakland (KGO) for the 7:15 pm PT / 10:15 ET second game. Significant revisions ahead for Dancing with the Stars and The $100,000 Pyramid this afternoon in the official nationals after the local NFL viewing is removed and replaced with the ratings for the out of time period airings of the ABC lineup (in late night in DC and Pittsburgh and special live telecasts of DWTS in LA and SF at 5 pm PT).

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).


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.
