A pair of “48 Hours” broadcasts led the (predictably) quiet primetime ratings Saturday night.
CBS kicked its night off with an “NCIS: Los Angeles” rerun at 8 p.m., which led the hour with a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.3 million viewers. “48 Hours” followed it with a 0.6 and 3.53 million viewers at 9 p.m., winning the night in both measures. Meanwhile, another new “48 Hours” capped off the night for the network with a 0.5 and 3.25 million viewers.
Elsewhere, ABC’s encore broadcast of its “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” special raked in a 0.5 average rating and 2.34 million viewers. It tied for the night’s no. 2 spot among adults 18-49, and was followed by the network’s half-hour “All About ‘All in the Family” and ‘The Jeffersons'” special (0.4, 1.97 million).
The rest of the night’s broadcasts were repeats.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.5/3||0.4/3||0.4/3||0.2/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||3.36||2.60||2.07||1.09|
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.
