The improvements “Love Island” made last week completely dissipated by the Friday primetime ratings.
The CBS reality series only managed to score a 0.3 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.04 million viewers. This was a good deal smaller than its most recent 0.5, where it drew 2.16 million viewers in the finals. Its performance was not all that different from the reruns which followed it, with “Hawaii Five-O” at 0.2 and “Blue Bloods” at 0.3.
On ABC, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” opened the night at 0.4 with 2.16 million viewers, down from the 0.5 with 2.38 million it picked up in last week’s finals. A rerun of “20/20” followed its lead at 0.4, as well.
Despite taking the night off, NBC posted Friday’s strongest numbers, with rebroadcasts of “American Ninja Warrior” at 0.5 and “Dateline” at 0.4. FOX did the same, but didn’t fare as well; a rerun of “First Responders Live” at 0.3 was followed in turn by a rerun of “MasterChef” at 0.3.
The CW rounded out the night with Friday’s few remaining new original broadcasts. “Masters of Illusion” built on the 0.2 it returned at last week, rising all the way to 0.3. It was then pursued by “The Big Stage,” which, at 0.2, was up one-tenth of a point from its final. A rerun of “The Outpost” was tacked on at the end, matching its previous 0.1.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.4/3||0.4/2||0.3/2||0.3/2||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||2.45||2.21||2.56||1.39||0.95|
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.
