666 Park Avenue Lazarus Part 1

Scoreboard CBS FOX ABC NBC
Adults 18-49: Rating/Share 0.7/3 0.7/3 0.4/2 0.4/2
Total Viewers (million) 3.69 3.22 2.14 1.89

Due to the nature of live  programming the ratings for FOX (MLB Baseball) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers. See below for more information on these Fast Affiliate Ratings

CBS and FOX tied as number one with adults 18-49, but CBS won with total viewers.

Your predictions about the finale of 666 Park Ave were far too optimistic.

Note: Sorry, we only have half hours ratings today. In the meantime, averaging these half hours into ratings for each show will often lead to errors

Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live baseball game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.

Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.

    Decent for 48 Hours repeats. Lol at 666 Park Avenue.

  • Baseball4Ever

    I Love Baseball!

  • Johnny

    Is a bit sad saying LOL at a show which didn’t get viewers, seems a bit childish

  • Baseball4Ever

    I watch MLB Network and MLB.TV every day….

  • John A

    Also awful for Zero Hour. Decent of ABC to air the 2 losers at all.

  • Dan T

    These may need to be revised. There was live programming on the East Coast with breaking news on the Zimmerman case that affected the 9:30 and 10pm programs. Because of Zimmerman, 20/20 Saturday at 10pm became a live show, not a rerun. Not sure how it aired on the West.

  • david

    Twenty twenty was sort of new last night. It was mostly the same as friday night show but they added new info on the vertict that was just announced last night. So half was a repeat and the second half was new.

  • chris23

    I don’t understand why ABC will air the remaining episodes of these two underperforming dramas yet don’t let Apt 23 episodes air live and send it to online only? I’m sure Apt 23 would perform at repeat numbers on Wednesday nights in place of family tools and live with your parents..

    “Is a bit sad saying LOL at a show which didn’t get viewers, seems a bit childish”

    I’ve never understood the many posters on here that find low ratings funny.

  • pmr

    The last 15 min of 666 Park ave were not shown do to the verdict with the Zimmerman trial which added insult to injury. None of the 10 pm shows aired in the east coast either

  • John A

    Yeah ABC should air those Apartment 23 Episodes. They would be below a million on saturday for sure.

  • RJ

    666 Park Avenue aired in its entirety on the East Coast, at least in my area.

  • Jon Devol

    666 Park Ave. Loved it. The story lines were intriguing and the people beautiful. Vanessa Williams!!! Sorry to see the show go!

  • Dennis

    @John A

    Along with FLOP Detector and rob60990 you’re fast becoming one of the most annoying posters on this site

  • Dan S

    I pretty much nailed it forecasting 0.3 for the finale to 666PA. For the record I did watch the show so I wasn’t intending to take any glee in its low numbers. The writing was on the wall & I knew it would draw CW numbers on a summer Saturday night. At least Terry O’ Quinn is going to star in Gang Related on Fox. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until next May.

  • Pat

    does anyone know why do no harm didnt air?
    i dont watch it, im just curious.

  • John A

    @Dennis what did i say that annoyed you?

  • ParkerWyeth

    CT zone NBC and CBS aired 15 minutes at 9pm on the Zimmerman verdict then back to programming. ABC aired the outcome of the trial until 10pm.

  • Igwell

    @Dennis what did i say that annoyed you?

    I’m guessing you derided a show he likes, a show that is being burned off on Saturdays in the Summer.

  • Colin

    666 Park Ave cut off when Jane said she’s pregnant… Now, I gotta watch last 3 mins online…
