SHOWBUZZDAILY WEDNESDAY NETWORK SCORECARD – 1.6.2021

 

Special news reports displaced most of the regular line-ups.  (Note, though, that on the West Coast, reruns of scripted shows aired on some networks in prime time, which may lead to adjustments.)

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:  News coverage at 0.7.

CBS:  After reruns at 0.5/0.4, news coverage at 0.3.

NBC:  News coverage at 1.0.

FOX:  The only network to maintain its original entertainment line-up had subdued debuts for THE MASKED DANCER (0.7) and NAME THAT TUNE (0.7).

CW:  Reruns at 0.1/0.1.

Tonight, NBC will introduce its high-profile sitcom MR. MAYOR with back-to-back episodes.

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 Wednesday cable programs and broadcast finals.

    I’m guessing the special news reports were election and riot related? Possibly the stupidest thing anyone could do by attacking democratic institutions. Good lord that has cost the GOP dearly.

    Hey Mitch,

    I see you stated: “CABLE RATINGS: Come back this afternoon for detailed demographic ratings for top Wednesday cable programs and broadcast finals”

    I thought the ratings were delayed due to New Years.

    The Masked Rioters on NBC did better than The Masked Dancer on FOX

    You mean like storming the capital two years ago over a judge.
