Combined broadcast/cable rankings, Sept. 12-18: ‘AHS: Roanoke’ ties Emmys and ‘America’s Got Talent’

combined-ratings-sept-12-18-16

NFL coverage swept the Top 5 spots in the combined adults 18-49 rankings for Sept. 12-18. The four-way tie for sixth place, however, is even more interesting.

The premiere of “American Horror Story: Roanoke” on FX drew a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That ties it with the Emmy Awards, which had a down year, and the final two episodes of the summer’s biggest broadcast show, “America’s Got Talent.” The Emmys and “AGT” had much larger total audiences, but nearly 70 percent of “American Horror Story’s” viewers were concentrated in the 18-49 demo.
