  • SumoMe


President Obama’s farewell address may lead to adjustments in final numbers.

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.


NBC:  THE WALL was steady at 1.7 before the network preemption.  THIS IS US is currently at 2.6, down 0.2 from its last airing in December, but the show aired twice on the West Coast, so its number may change this afternoon.

ABC:  THE MIDDLE was steady at 1.7, and AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE was down 0.1 to 1.5.  After the preemption, AGENTS OF SHIELD returned for its first airing since December and is currently up 0.1 to 0.8.

FOX:  NEW GIRL stayed at 1.1, but THE MICK fell 0.2 to 1.1.  The network aired BONES with a 9:55PM East Coast start time, so its rating is subject to adjustment, and  is currently at 1.0.

CW:  NO TOMORROW was again at 0.2, behind the 0.3 lead-in it had from a rerun of THE FLASH.

CBS:  The network opted for reruns at 1.1/0.7.

GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE returns to Bravo tonight.


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.

    Does the ratings from This Is Us (10-11) include the west coast showing that aired from 9-10?

    • Mitch Metcalf

      The fast affiliate national ratings here for THIS IS US at 10 pm in the chart includes viewing of the original at 10pE/9pC in most of the country and viewing of the repeat episode at 10pP on the west coast. On the west coast, the original aired at 9pP so that viewing is mixed into the 9pm number in the fast national chart. A little confusing but this is what can happen when programs air outside the normal broadcast feed pattern. The national ratings later today will sort out the time zone distortions caused by the live Presidential Address.
