A “Carol Burnett Show” retrospective drew a big audience for CBS Sunday night — and performed pretty well even among those viewers who are too young to have seen the show the first time around.
The 50th anniversary special drew 15.2 million viewers — the biggest non-sports audience of the week — and a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49. The latter was good for second among entertainment shows for the night and is well above CBS’ average for the 8-10 p.m. time period so far this season.
FOX’s lineup got an NFL bump, though not as large as the last time the network had football running into primetime. Compared to the last post-NFL airings, “The Simpsons” (1.7) was off two tenths of a point, “Ghosted” (1.0) and “Family Guy” (1.1) were down three tenths each and “The Last Man on Earth” (0.8) slipped a tenth.
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.0) and “Shark Tank” (0.9) were each down a bit vs. last week for ABC. “Sunday Night Football” earned a 13.1 household rating in metered markets, up from last week’s 12.2. It’s also ahead of the 11.5 for the same weekend last year.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||4.5/16||2.0/8||1.2/4||0.9/3|
|Total Viewers (millions)||14.16||5.77||11.97||4.01|
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.
