Final broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Monday, January 14, 2019

Monday’s primetime ratings had a few small shifts from the preliminary ratings worth noting. Most of the changes occurred on CBS, with “The Neighborhood” shifting up from 1.2 to 1.3 in adults 18-49, and “Magnum P.I.” rising the same distance from 0.7 to 0.8. “Bull,” on the other hand, adjusted down from 0.8 to 0.7.

Outside CBS, the only significant change was in “The Bachelor” on ABC, which ticked up from 1.6 to 1.7, meaning that it improved on its rating from last week by two-tenths instead of just one.

Upward adjustments in adults 18-49 are in blue, downward adjustments are in red.

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.

  • “Reader Emails,” Ratings, & “Temptation Island” Talk & Clip From Next Week’s Episode – Reality Steve

    […] Ratings are in from Colton’s episode #2 and maybe you saw on Twitter yesterday, production was hyping it trended higher than last season’s 2nd episode. And it did. Monday drew 5.6 million viewers and a 1.7 rating, whereas Arie’s second episode last season drew 5.5 million viewers and a 1.4 rating. What they conveniently forgot to mention is that last year’s second episode went up against the Alabama/Georgia National Championship game. This past Monday didn’t compete with college football. Next week is where I think we’ll get a true gauge if Colton’s season outperforms Arie’s season since episode 3 of either season wasn’t up against any major college football game. Just know Arie’s third episode last season drew 6.5 million viewers. I really don’t think Colton’s is gonna go from 5.6 million this week and jump almost 900k viewers. I’d be surprised. Then again, it’s all relative since none of this matters. The “Bachelor” is being talked about everywhere, it’s trending every Monday night on Twitter, and they charge good money for a :30 spot in their show, and that’s what matters most to them. […]
