Without any new, original broadcasts, NBC was able to come out on top of the Saturday primetime ratings this week.
The source of its success came from a showing of “Furious 7,” an entry in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, which scored a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and attracted 1.94 million viewers. ABC fared similarly, showing a spat of reruns of “Shark Tank,” “Press Your Luck,” and “Card Sharks,” each of which rated a 0.3, 0.4, and 0.4, respectively.
CBS debuted a new episode of “Million Dollar Mile” at 0.2, with 0.98 million viewers. This was just a bit beneath the 0.2 with 1.45 million viewers it drew last week. The network also aired a rerun of “Love Island” at 0.1 and “48 Hours” at 0.3.
On FOX, coverage of the MLB did not fare quite as well as it did last week. The sports broadcast racked up a 0.3 rating, compared to its most recent 0.5. This was not the weakest performance of the night, but it was not the commanding lead it took previously, either.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.4/3||0.4/2||0.3/3||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||1.94||1.84||1.92||1.43|
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.
