Will NBC Average a 1.0 Adults 18-49 Rating Tonight? - POLL

This is not shaping up to be a proud night for the Peacock Network.

Last night, week-long game show Take It All fell 50% from a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating on Tuesday to a 1.1, showing that its relatively strong launch was entirely a function of having The Voice as a lead-in. NBC's other programs tonight are two low-rated episodes of Up All Night (1.2 A18-49 last week), which have been beaten by CW's The Vampire Diaries multiple times this season and, at 10PM, Rock Center which garnered a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating last week and a 0.9 the week prior.

The question is how low will NBC's ratings go? Last week, with a new episode of its strongest Thursday program, The Office, the network averaged a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

Will tonight be a night that lives in ratings infamy? Make your predictions.

    NBC might do a 1.3 or 1.4 in the 18-49’s, but the NFL Network’s football game will siphon off many viewers who ordinarily would have watched a broadcast network show.


    It’s wild! I was so thinking of this when I saw the grid earlier. Definitely less than 1.0.

    UAN 1.0

    UAN 1.2 (second airing)

    TIA .9

    Rockcenter .7

    :O It might match a Guys With kids Repeat lol.

  • Nick

    A 1.07 rating average, which rounds to a 1.1.

    Up All Night: 1.1
    Take It All: 1.2
    Rock Center: 0.9

    TIA will be up a little. I think airing against the similarly family-friendly Modern Family hurt it.

    take it all will be cancelled soon

    I predict the untitled Michael J. Fox sitcom will be slotted into Thursdays at 9/8c replacing the departed The Office next season. It’s NBC’s best hope to breathe life into Thursdays and besides, and with Fox’s battle with Parkinson’s disease highly publicized (it also lead to him creating the Michael J. Fox Foundation), NBC has high hopes in this show. Odds are, you’re going to see four new sitcoms on Thursdays on NBC next season — similar to ABC a few years ago when The Middle and Modern Family debuted — with Michael J. Fox’s show getting the aformented 9/8c slot. Take my word for it!

    Also, I predict NBC’s Thursday ratings will increase a little next month. It’s Thursday Night Football to blame for ratings woes because it seems that NBC’s comedies have the biggest crossover audience with football of any Thursday show. Next month that won’t be an issue.
