SHOWBUZZDAILY THURSDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 7.30.2020

 

New episodes didn’t do much for ABC.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary live+same day 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.

ABC:  Last night’s listings have the network’s game shows airing fresh episodes, but the ratings were almost identical to last week’s reruns:  HOLEY MOLEY steady at 0.5, DON’T steady at 0.4, and TO TELL THE TRUTH up 0.1 to 0.5.  That compares to 0.6/0.7/0.6 for the new episodes that aired on July 9. 

CBS:  Reruns at 0.4 across the board except for YOUNG SHELDON’s, which was at 0.6.

NBC:  Reruns at 0.4/0.3/0.3.

FOX:  The preliminary number for the regional MLB BASEBALL coverage was 0.4.

CW:  KILLER CAMP held at 0.1, followed by a rerun at 0.1.

Tonight’s only originals are CBS’s GREATEST #ATHOME VIDEOS and FOX’s WWE SMACKDOWN. 

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

Note: The fast affiliate-based ratings below measure what aired on network affiliates in 210 U.S. markets from 8-11 pm Eastern & Pacific or 7-10 pm Central & Mountain. The numbers are some combination of the network schedule and any pre-emptions (such as local news or weather coverage). Accurate program ratings will be available this afternoon with the broadcast finals.

CABLE RATINGS: Come back this afternoon for detailed demographic ratings for top Thursday cable programs and broadcast finals.

    I watched a bit of that baseball game on FOX broadcast. The Mets has a real rally going in the bottom of the 8th but failed to get anyone across home plate. The fake crowd noise and cardboard cutouts in the stands gives these games a bit of a surreal feeling….
