It was yet another quiet night in the Saturday primetime ratings, although FOX did stand clear in front of the rest of the competition.
The highest-rated performance across the entire night was from MLB Baseball on FOX, which scored a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.55 million viewers. This was up from the network’s baseball coverage last week, which brought in a 0.4 with 2.23 million viewers.
Beyond that sole outing, there were no other new, original broadcasts for the night. NBC narrowly made it to second place in the demo with “Songland” at 0.2 and a two-hour “Dateline” at 0.4, the latter of which was down from last week’s rerun at 0.5. ABC slipped to third place with rebroadcasts of “Shark Tank” at 0.3, “The Good Doctor” at 0.2, and “20/20” at 0.3.
With “Ransom” having concluded last week, CBS resorted to reruns, as well, starting with “God Friended Me,” which grabbed a 0.2, and a pair of episodes of “48 Hours,” which picked up a 0.2 and a 0.3, respectively. Network averages:
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.5/3||0.3/2||0.3/2||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||2.55||2.14||1.86||2.12|
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.
