Sunday was a slightly better night for the broadcast networks than the past couple Sundays have been, with a number of shows improving on their ratings.
“Little Big Shots” led the night’s non-sports offerings with a 2.0 in adults 18-49, up 0.2 from last week. “The Carmichael Show” (1.2) and “Crowded” (1.0) also improved by two tenths for NBC.
At FOX, other than a “Family Guy” rerun everything was up over last week. “The Last Man on Earth” (1.1, +0.2) had the biggest gain, while the network’s four other comedies each rose a tenth.
“The Family” also rose a tenth to 0.8 for ABC, while “Once Upon a Time” (1.1) and “Quantico” (1.0) were even with last week’s numbers. CBS’ prime-time lineup started about a half-hour late because of The Masters, but pending updates “Madam Secretary” (1.1) is also up. “Elementary” aired two episodes, both of which drew 0.9s, up from 0.8 two weeks ago.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.3/4||1.2/4||1.0/3||0.9/3|
|Total Viewers (millions)||9.32||6.93||3.80||2.06|
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.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. 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.
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.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
