Big Brother August 15

Motive was adjusted down five tenths, Rookie Blue and Wipeout were adjusted down four tenths, and Big Brother and Hollywood Game Night were each adjusted down a single tenth among adults 18-49 versus the preliminary Thursday broadcast ratings. It should be noted that there were multiple football pre-emptions on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, resulting in a large number of adjustments.

    Wow, repeat of Mindy beat both repeats of New Girl and Glee in ratings. :)

  • Bill

    Wow RB hovering around 1 the whole season. At least it was renewed already

  • rob60990

    Wipeout up 3 tenths from last week.

  • CarShark

    Hollywood Game Night has been pretty solid this summer. Can’t wait for season 2.

    I have to say HGN is doing pretty well for NBC and I also enjoy it. And you know it’s doing good because their repeat beat an all new Motive in the demo and on Tuesday another repeat beat an all new Extreme Weight Loss. Wow Wipeout went up to a 1.2? With all the bad ratings it’s been getting so far that’s pretty good. And I see RB is just holding to that 1.0 lol well actually it already went below a 1.0 last week but who cares it’s renewed anyway. And last but definitely almost least is Motive…what a shame. ABC did so much promotion for this show in May and they put it behind DWTS and it’s already fallen below a 1.0 like five times already and it’s losing to a repeat of HGN.

    Chicago, Philadelphia and Atlanta are very large markets. If you take those markets out the ratings for these shows, and any show will suffer.

    ABC on Thursday, 1 August (no preseason football) – 1.2, 0.8, 1.0

    ABC on Thursday, 15 August (football in Chi, Phil, Wash, etc.) – 1.2, 0.8, 1.0

    I hope Motive comes back next year–I happen to like that show!

  • Jon

    I don’t see how Motive gets renewed. I have watched every episode. I like the two lead detectives as actors, but I have to admit some of these episodes are poorly written. It’s just a very average show. It’s one of those shows I am watching just to fill time. Would probably not be watching it if there was something else to watch at that time.

    @ Jon

    Burn Notice?

  • Zach

    Really happy with Mindy beating Glee and New girl even if it is in low repeat numbers. Maybe it will return up in the 1.8- 2.0 range.

  • Verne

    Really enjoy Motive. Maybe because there’s a twist at the end even if it doesn’t make much sense like all the other cop shows.

  • tjs318

    all e repeats should show tptb that summer time should have their own programming. Things need to change, if they would keep great shows like Bunheads, Emily Owens, Flashforward, and even Jericho, they would have some great summer programming, instead of boring repeats and low ratings amd extend that three day rule to 7 days. I think tptb should feel superior to the advertisers instead of the other way around,

  • Brian

    ABC renews Rookie Blue with ratings so crappy like this and still doesn’t bring back Body Of Proof even as a Summer show for 2014..What a Total Frigin JOKE ABC!

  • Bobby

    Rookie Blue gets renewed because it’s a Canadian show! It get’s renewed by their producers here in Canada. Whether ABC wants to show the show is up to them, or whether they cancel them from their lineup. But in Canada it’s renewed and it does very well and is VERY popular here… Everyone I know watches it and even randoms I meet watch it.

    Rookie Blue -> Canadian Show, filmed produced here
    Body of Proof -> American Show, filmed produced in the states

    Isn’t Saving hope a Canadian show – got cancelled in the US – and it’s still going here and is popular as well on CTV.

    So don’t go by ratings when you look at shows from diff countries and what not… if that was the case Big Brother Canada would be cancelled already
