Demo Profile 2015 WED.22 Jul

NBC:  The 1.5 for last night’s season premiere of LAST COMIC STANDING put it down 0.2 from the 2014 premiere.  It followed a 1.2 for an AMERICA’S GOT TALENT clip show.

CBS:  BIG BROTHER fell 0.2 to a 1.8 that was still enough for a clear nightly win.  EXTANT, moved to 9PM for that lead-in, nosed up 0.1 to 0.7 from last week’s series low, which only tied it with the CRIMINAL MINDS rerun now airing at 10PM.

FOX:  After MASTERCHEF slipped 0.1 to 1.4, HOME FREE premiered with a mediocre 0.9.

ABC:  A night of sitcom reruns, all at 0.7-0.8.

CW:  Reruns, both at 0.2.

FOX airs the finale of WAYWARD PINES tonight.

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